What does your profile picture say about you?


Your profile picture can say a lot about you. Because it’s one of the first things a person will see when they click on your profile, it’s important to choose a picture that accurately represents you! Want to know a few factors to consider before the final selection? Keep reading to find out!



As an agent, it’s important to find a good balance between professional and fun! Your profile picture should be a reflection of this principle. Think of ways to take a photo take accurately represents you and your branding without being too casual. For example, a picture you took at the beach on vacation might not be the best for your page! Utilize color and setting to add a touch of personalization to your picture. Using a photographer and a couple different outfits for lifestyle shots could be a great way to get a profile picture!  



For most people, getting the “perfect picture” is really tricky – and sometimes feels impossible! You could take 100 pictures and still not find one that you like enough to post. Some good news? You’re probably the only one that feels that way! Try not to get too hung up on the way you look in a photo. While image is important, the minuscule details are not everything. Find a picture that you mostly like and get it out in the open! More likely than not, you’ll receive great feedback from people who want to celebrate you. 



With technology today, we have many different tools available for editing and enhancing images. These resources can be extremely helpful in cleaning up and beautifying your picture to get it ready to post. But on the flip side, they can also do a good amount of harm. Using too much photoshop or getting a little too “excited” with filters can turn a great picture into a poor one. Use these assets sparingly and to your advantage to ensure a great picture! And if you think you might have gone a little too far with the editing… you probably have! 




At the end of the day, your profile picture will probably not determine whether or not you get a client. A profile picture’s job is to show people what you look like, so try not to stress about it. Just remember these two things: be you and keep it simple!
