How to Change Your Cover Photo on Facebook and Twitter

An aesthetically pleasing and professional cover or banner image is an important part of your Social Media branding as a Real Estate Professional. Having a custom banner made with your specific information or creating one yourself can leave an excellent first impression on a potential new client, that’s why it’s so important to know how to change your cover image as well as all the specifics that go into creation.

Pro Tips:

  • Make sure you are working with larger images as to not stretch and blur the photos in your cover or banner.
  • Use legible fonts and a color scheme that is easy to read.
  • If it is not a state requirement, do not include your contact information. Facebook prefers users look to the page itself for any information needed.
  • Adhere to any guidelines set forth by your state law or your companies policy, if you are having your banner created always let your designer know what you know.
  • Implement designs that are both desktop and mobile friendly
