In this video, Phil Gold gets you started updating your online Spark profile by updating your picture. Learn why pictures are more important than you think, and hear some best practices around them.
- [Instructor] I think that the very first thing…you should do when you've got Spark up…and running is update your profile.…And I think adding a picture of yourself…is a very important part of that.…Now people think I'm kidding about this,…but I'm really serious.…Look, the whole point of having a collaborative tool…is to make it easier for people…to work with other people, right?…So I strongly believe that having some sort of visual image…for the person on the other end of the line…helps to establish a faster and deeper connection with them,…which in turn, makes it easier to work with them.…
And I think it needs to be a recent picture of you, too.…Not a picture of a dog or a cat…or of your kids or of a cartoon character…or of you when you were five years old.…Look, I love cats and dogs.…And I'm sure that your kids are adorable.…And I think that Screwy Squirrel is hysterical.…But I'm not working with them, I'm working with you.…And I want to know who you are.…So please, seriously.…Adding a picture is snap, too.…
