I took a good look around Book Town and even though there are a ever growing number of members, I've noticed something. There aren't as many profile pictures posted as there should be.
Why is this important?
You're online footprint, that's why.
You want to draw a readers attention, you want to pull someone into you and who you are and what you're about. Even something as silly as a hat or a you holding your dog, or you standing with your wife in front of the Mayan Pyramids, through a teeny tiny profile picture you are telling a story about yourself, thus connecting with a potential customer.
But don't take my word for it. See what this article has to say about it, there were some things in it that I didn't realize.
Delaney wrote in his Vice magazine column that he selected the worst possible picture of himself he could find when he started his Twitter account, a picture a friend took at the beach after saying, “You look awful, let me take a picture.”
Well, it worked.
