5 Types of Images to Include in Your Bidvine Portfolio
Images are one of the best ways to entice a customer on the web. Unlike words, you can relay your message within seconds. On Bidvine, we’ve made it easy for you to upload as many portfolio images as you need, and here are some ideas on what those images could be.
1. A picture of you
Customers identify better with a professional if they see a picture of their face rather than a company logo. Although as a professional on Bidvine you have a separate section for your company logo and profile picture, your portfolio could be a good place to showcase additional pictures, including your team if you are not a sole trader.

2. Action shots
People like to picture you at work completing a task; this is why an “on the job” picture would work. Show your future customers that you are not only a true professional but also that you complete tasks such as theirs every day. If you are a tradesperson, showcase the type of projects that you regularly complete, like John from Candofix Ltd. below, while if you’re a tutor or personal trainer, with your clients permission consider a picture with your prodigy smiling!

3. Your Achievements
If you’ve won an award for your skills, now is the time to shout about it. Let future customers on Bidvine see your achievements through an uploaded image. You can also include newspaper cuttings and press mentions of you or your company in the news.
4. Before and after pictures
Everyone loves an interesting before an after picture and if you can show just how much difference you’ve made to a home interior or exterior, you’ll inspire confidence in your next customer. If your design skills allow, try adding a caption to give a little detail such as the client’s specifications or the time it took to complete.

Screenshots can be a great way to get a message across in an image while still providing the client with plenty of information. As long as you don’t blatantly advertise another website on Bidvine you can upload cropped screenshots of public testimonials or feedback you’ve received and of mentions of you online.
This isn’t an exhaustive list. If you have other suggestions or have uploaded different portfolio images to these to your Bidvine profile, please let us know in the comments below, we’re always thrilled to receive your feedback! and don’t forget, if you don’t have enough suitable photos, you can always hire a photographer on Bidvine!
