The importance of a good LinkedIn photo can never be underestimated, which is why it shouldn’t be so difficult to actually get one.
LinkedIn, the preferred social media network for professionals, has teamed up with marketing agency Manifold to help solve this problem by hitting big cities across the country, offering free professional headshots. Wait, FREE and Professional pictures? If flashbacks to picture day at school are attaching your brain right now, this may be a great way to exercise your demons. If you love pics, why not take another? 🙂
Named the #PictureOpportunity Tour, visitors to the event will also receive advice on how to create the most attention-grabbing profile as well as an upgraded LinkedIn account. Not too shabby for a FREE deal. For those unable to visit LinkedIn on its tour, the campaign’s website also features two videos—one about how to take a professional headshot yourself and how to create a standout profile headline—with tips on how to get the most out of LinkedIn. So get to it, and start looking professional now.
