Social Media is a powerful and successful tool to enhance your networking.
I have gained new clients, made new contacts and used the platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as an introduction to those valuable face to face meetings. Of course, there are many other things that make various social media platforms the success they are today.
One thing that many people who have online profiles fail to get just right is their head shot or profile picture. I am not saying that mine is perfect, but it has several key components that I look for when I connect with someone:
It is so easy to get a professional head shot today, and at minimal cost. Even a profile picture taken with a smartphone is better than no photo at all.
I no longer connect with anyone who doesn’t have a head shot. If I know them personally, I send a gentle reminder that they may wish to include one.
