You know how important it is to have a professional image to represent your business. One of the first steps of a new business is usually having a professional logo and website designed, along with business cards and other materials. However, many fall short when it comes to their social media image, which could be bad for business.
Professional Profile Images and Banners on Your Social Media Pages
It’s quite common to see social media pages of businesses with logos and profile images that are blurry with poor resolution, that aren’t sized properly, or banners that don’t fit or look like you did them yourself, without a professional graphic designer. Some amateur graphic designers can get away with it, but it’s always a good idea to get a professional’s honest opinion on your homemade creations. Your social media account is another online representation of your business so it’s very important that it also looks professional.
It can be very time consuming creating profile pictures and banners, especially if you’re not a graphic designer, and if you have multiple social media accounts, as different sites use different image sizes.
Should You Use a Professional Logo or Head-shot?
Use your logo or a professional headshot for your profile image, depending on the type of business. A sole trader might go with a headshot, but if you have more than one person in your business, a logo might be more appropriate. You can use your logo in your custom styled, branded banner image.
In most cases, you can use the same profile images and banner images across your different social media accounts, but they all need to be sized appropriately which should also be done by a professional designer.
When your social media accounts don’t look professional, neither does your business so it is very important to use properly formatted images and banners across all your social media accounts.
