Ask Yourself This

Ask yourself this.. When you look through LinkedIn for new professional connections. What the first thing you look at?

The answer in many cases if not all, will be the profile image. The image you see will make you in that split second click next or take the opportunity to look at the persons profile.

“By looking at a face for less than a second, we can judge someone’s age, gender, race, emotional state, and even their trustworthiness,” You may be under the impression that it takes weeks of getting to know someone before you can trust them, but your brain has already done the job of decoding their personality within the first second of meeting them face-to-face.

Now ask yourself this.. Does my profile image make me stand out from the crowd?

If the answer is NO, “why haven’t you done something about it” Your looking through all of your social media platforms, judging people by their profile image, and thats what they are doing to you..

The Power Of LinkedIn

Had Mark come to the studio this morning, he owns Corporate Drama www.corporatedrama.co.uk and he wanted to update his head shots. Spent a couple of hrs with him in the studio this morning and he went away with some awesome shots.

These shots prove the power of using LinkedIn to network, I was making connections last week and Mark was one of them. My timing was perfect as he was looking to have new head shots. He checked out my profile and website that day and booked his session.

Picking and choosing the right people to connect with will pay dividends and don’t bombard people with loads of messages telling them what you do. Be polite send a thank you for the connection and explain your services, tell them that you’re their if they need you. Send updates every so often just as a reminder but don’t be pushy. Its all about networking! Upset a connection and you have lost all of those potential recommendations.
