Every few months, I like to change my social profile image. How much does this cost me to do this? Honestly, it cost me nothing in money, just my time. But that is time well spent on my Brand Identity.

How are you spend your money/time on getting noticed?

  • – how do you want to be seen?
  • – what are you going to be wearing?
  • – is the background distracting?
  • – do you look confident and approachable?

Every image on social is sending a message!

Most folks need to consider their imagery’s message to their Ideal Client.

Some don’t even check out the background before shooting the selfie! The amount of clothing I see on the radiator or the bedroom door.

My favourite is what I call ‘ the shithouse selfie.’ the one that happens to be taken after you are confident after putting that new item of clothing on or having done your hair/make-up, so you pull out the phone and shoot, not thinking of the clutter in the background!
