Can I use a GIF as my Linkedin profile picture?

Unfortunately, Linkedin does not support GIF images at this stage.

A quick question for you:

  • How much of your time and money with LinkedIn Marketing is generating benefits for your business?
  • Is it worth your endless time promoting your LinkedIn account when you know you do not even own it?
  • Would you be better off pivoting your marketing resources to other areas?

I see this ⛔️  MASSIVE ISSUE ⛔️ many times!

Many new business owners, entrepreneurs and marketers naively think the more noise they publish on LinkedIn, the more likely potential customers will like their brands and buy. Does that sound like you? That’s ok.

You can always change the way you see LinkedIn Marketing by starting a successful Social Media Strategy.

✅  Once you have your Social Media Strategy defined, many things will make more sense and I will assure you will look at Instagram Marketing in a far different new way.

A well-crafted strategy will:

✔︎ Free up valuable time
✔︎ Make you produce far less but better quality content and,
✔︎ You will get greater results as followers and customers will notice.

If you believe you have a creative, passionate and curious mind, I invite you to read my article: How to write the best Social Media Strategy.

I guarantee you will start doing LinkedIn Marketing in a far more meaningful and effective way.
