How to Upload Photos to Get More Bookings on Crew Connection

5.12.16

You work in a visual industry, so shouldn’t you have a portfolio that reflects that fact?

Your company profile on Crew Connection is like your very own low-maintenance website. Adding imagery is one of the biggest changes you can make to increase traffic and transactions on that “website.”

Here are some tips and tricks to get more bookings simply by adding images to your Crew Connection company profile.

Add Your Best Stills

You do great work and have flawless attention to detail, right? Prove it! Add some stills to your company profile that show off your editing studio, your newest gear, and some of your best work.

Quality stills can be especially impactful for hair and makeup artists, wedding/event videographers, and still photographers—all of whom are welcome to join Crew Connection.

Dazzle ‘Em with Your Profile Photo

We live in an increasingly digital world; yet we still want to connect on a personal level. That’s why a profile picture can really set you apart from your pack of competitors.

If you’re an independent operator, upload a clear and approachable photo of yourself. For larger companies, use a crisp logo to add a professional touch to your profile.

Make Your Search Result Background Image Shine

Since clients won’t be able to see your stills or your profile photo until they click on your company’s profile, your search result background image is your best chance to catch their attention.

Think of this image as big ole free ad on Crew Connection’s vast database of vetted crews. Choose a clear, strong photo that exemplifies the kind of work your company is best at. Keep it professional and choose a photo other than your profile photo to maximize the exposure of your best images.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Sign up as a crew or log in to your company profile on Crew Connection.

2. You’ll land on your My Account page. Click on Company Details in the left sidebar under Crew Profile.
