As LinkedIn increasingly becomes a reliable vehicle for finding influencers, prospects, partners, and new talent, your LinkedIn profile is more important than ever.
Here are nine steps to make sure your profile is polished for 2019:
1. Pay attention to your profile picture and your background picture.
Use a high-quality professional photo, preferably 400 x 400 pixels, and make the photo visible to everyone.
To control your visibility, go to your profile and click on “Edit public profile and URL” in the upper right corner. In the right column you will see an overview of your current visibility options. You can make your profile picture visible to your contacts, your network, or all LinkedIn members, or you can choose “Public”. When you change the visibility of your profile picture to “Public”, you make yourself easier to find through search engines or other networks.
Choose a high-quality background image that also conveys something meaningful about you. The optimal size for your background image should be 1584 x 396 pixels.
