I just watched a short video about having an avatar to get peoples attention so I thought I would write this quick post about it.
If you want to be successful at internet marketing it’s essential to have an avatar to get peoples’ attention. Although the word avatar has other meanings, on the internet an avatar is a graphic that represents the user. It can be a real-life digital photo of yourself or a cartoon image.
If you are serious about branding yourself and making money on the internet there are good reasons why you should not use a cartoon image which I will explain further on.
When you register on a number of different sites you are often asked to upload a photo of yourself when you create your profile. This is your avatar.
