let me give you a disclaimer. This post is for people who hope to use their blog as a career. Not for people who use their blog as a hobby😊. Hey neighbors! We are going into the weekend! That means their are usually meet and greets! But I want you to have the best first impression as possible! Remember, when doing meet and greets the only thing we see is your thumbnail, title, and link. That means your picture and title has to do the advertising! Did you know that titles and thumbnails that are not appealing will get passed up? Remember, we literally have hundreds of blogs to choose from. We as readers are constantly asking 2 questions about your blog. Are you interesting, and is there anything I can benefit from. You have to tell us that in your title and thumbnail alone. We want to know if we are wasting time clicking in. I’m going to let you know how I feel looking at the pictures below. When you look at the photos, you might interpret it differently. But the same general idea stands. You as the reader don’t have time to spend seconds or minutes trying to think if you are interpreting it right and if you should click in!
Us as the readers can take this and easily perceive this the wrong way. So make sure your title explains your thumbnail clearly. If you claim your blog gives love advice, we might immediately become skeptical! But if you claim you’re a model or poet, we will then become curious to know your story. That’s a good thing!
If someone is trying to advertise themselves as a professional, it’s important to show a warm inviting smile as well as a professional appearance. We as readers want to feel as we can trust you.
So did you get a better idea? Let me give you a list of things to consider when choosing a thumbnail.
Does your thumbnail give a clue of your personality?
Does your thumbnail match your title?
Can we misperceive you?
Do you create mystery or something that sparks immediate interest?
As a professional do you look trusting?
If you’re not showing your face does your picture or title compensate?
