That’s a serious amount of real estate if you ask me, so be sure to maximize this marketing opportunity. Here’s how:
- Hire a designer (contact Boutique By Design, we’d love to help!) or use a photo editing program to create your own
- Make sure to keep your branding consistent on your facebook page so that you remain memorable in within your target market. Do this by using your logo as well as your brand colours, graphics and business concept. For example, if you have a website, make sure your Facebook profile image matches it.
- It a good idea to also include elements that quickly define your business within this image as well. This might be a list of services, popular products, a photograph, your tagline, your website URL, a mention of a special offer, etc. The idea is to grab and keep the attention of the viewer.
- Remember to keep this image orderly and nicely balanced. Too much content will result in an ineffective profile image.
