Since it was released back in June 2014, banners are slowly being introduced to basic LinkedIn members. While they don’t have access to the selection of backgrounds that Premium members have access to, you can still upload an image of your own that will promote your business. The recommended size is 1400 x 400 Pixels so use this to fully promote you and your work.

Tough Talk: 

Aim to have a banner that promotes your business or is relevant to what you do. This will help people take your profile more seriously. Better to have a professional picture that describes what you do at your job then have all of your customers ignore your profile due to an inappropriate image. You can also use the space to promote your products.


Top LinkedIn Tip: 

Utilise the banner to promote yourself and the business, invent slogans to help catch attention or use the banner to showcase products. If you can’t pick a decent banner then use a coloured banner as this will still attract attention without being inappropriate. The more attractive the banner is the more likely someone will want to read your profile.
