The cover photo is the large banner at the top of your profile. Your cover photo should be all about you or your profession. This is prime real estate so feature an image that in some way promotes your personal brand, showcases your core benefits, demonstrates creative or technical abilities, or conveys what it is you are aiming for. Suggestions:
- You can use a video, instead of a static cover photo.
- Make sure you use the right dimensions! Desktops: 851 pixels wide and 315 pixels tall. Mobile: 640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall.
- Speak to your niche audience, if possible like I try to do here in the example.
