  • Resonate With Your Content

This can be a bit trickier, but make sure that your cover photo will resonate with what you are posting on your Facebook page. If you’re using it as a way to tell folks your behind-the-scenes processes, then consider featuring your office space (if it’s photogenic) or consider a picture of your team and let your audience create an emotional connection with them.

Don’t forget lighting! It can make all the difference between your product looking appealing and looking downtrodden and dreary.

Don’t forget context. Don’t add in extra, frivolous images into your picture. If you’re a photographer, make sure you have photography equipment or your specialty. Don’t add in extra stuff that isn’t really related to what you do.
