We’ve all seen it: A well designed profile page on someone’s website mismatched with a poor headshot. Sure, you've done amazing work in the world, people love you, but that badly cropped mobile phone snapshot from a recent beach vacation only contradicts your credentials.
A poor headshot says that don't care how the public views you. It also says that you don't believe you are worth investing in yourself. So why should a potential client invest in you?
The top 3 things a great headshot can do for you and your business:
- Everyone should have a great photo of themself. It makes you feel good to look your best. Having a quality image of yourself to share with your professional peers boosts your self confidence, and it can even inspire you to share more of yourself with others, take a few risks, and overcome work-related challenges.
- People are visual. If the first image they see of you is a professional headshot portrait then you will stay top of mind. If it's a horrible photo, they just might skip right over you. A good headshot gives people an idea of your personality before they meet you in person.
- You will use it everywhere. You can use it on your website, social media, PR for any speaking engagements/workshops. Order a print one for your Mom! You'll be surprised at all the great uses you will have for it.
