Uploading Photos and Video
Show off the craftsmanship and professionalism of your business with a photo gallery of your work!
Here are some ideas to consider when you are selecting photos to upload:
- What you do: One effective way to do this is with before-and-after shots that show the
difference your work can make.
- Who you are: Share photos of yourself and your team.
- Where you work: Include photos of your office, workshop, trucks, etc.
- What equipment you use: Customers are interested in seeing how you do what you do.
Your photos will appear on our merchant photos page as well as on your profile.
How to upload and edit your photos:
- Log in to your Business Center and go to the section called “Your Picture Album”.
- Click the “Browse” button next to Photo 1, and select a photo that is saved on your computer. Repeat this step for all photos you wish to add.
- Click “Upload” at the bottom of the page to see a thumbnail appear in each photo box (this may take a moment).
- At this point, you have the option to rotate or delete your image.
- When upload is complete, click the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page.

c. Photos must be in GIF, JPG or BMP formats.
- In the Picture Album section, you can also add captions to describe your photos.
- Click on the “Preview Profile” tab at the top of the page to view the results.
In a study conducted by The Kelsey Group, results showed that approximately 55% of people who view a video visit the company’s website as a result!
Consumers can sort results by businesses that have a video. Including a video could help you show up higher and make a personal connection with potential customers. Show employees in action, or have your customers give a video testimonial. If you don’t have professional equipment, use video from a cell phone or handheld video camera as long as it represents your company and what you do. Or, use a TV commercial that was produced for your business. Just make sure to update your videos frequently to keep content fresh.
