Publishing the Best LinkedIn profile photo – Benefits

Below are some of the top benefits you should have the best LinkedIn profile picture:

  • Get easily recognised by potential clients or partners.
  • Promote your personal brand to millions of other LinkedIn users
  • Show a positive welcoming personal brand image
  • Increase trust as people seeing your profile will know you are “a real” person
  • It is free so why not!

The only thing in common is that there is no rule: different styles are being used and you will have to judge yourself which style type might suit your needs.

I hope you enjoy and find it useful when deciding what type of LinkedIn profile photo you end up publishing.

Remember you do not have to stick to the same LinkedIn profile picture for life, not even for the whole year! You can alternatively use it for a specific campaign or key professional event/milestone specific purposes.
