Social Media cover images and profile photos are some of the most tedious aspects of improving the branding of your small business. Almost all social media networks have different recommendations for their images, due to the difference in size of the amount of space they allow for images on their profile pages.
When your goal is to improve your brand, improving your online presence by way of your social media accounts is a great start. But one of the most important factors in improving your brand is Brand Consistency and Cohesion. By ensuring that all of your Header Images, Logo Images, and Profile Photos all match in some way, you are making sure that no matter where a potential customer first sees your branding they still recognize it as your company.
However, since most social networks have different image requirements, you can’t just take your logo or one photo from your website and upload it to all of your social media profiles. You’ll have to take your logo or a featured image from your website, and re-size them to fit each of the social networks your business is featured.
Sounds like a pain huh? Well, it can be, but if you have any graphic design skills or an employee who does, it’s definitely not a mammoth task. The first step you’ll need is to know what size of cover image or profile photo each social media network recommends, and that’s the first step that I’ve taken care of for you here.
Above you will find the recommended cover image and profile photo sizes for each of the major social media networks, as well as a few of the lesser used ones.
