According to research by the University of Pennsylvania, people decide within 3 seconds whether they like you and want to do business with you. When the first impression and image of you is commonly online, your photo matters. Your headshot is most often your first connection to a potential client or employer.
Your website acts like your store front and your business card.
You want to bring your future customer, ideal client or employer in so you have the opportunity to show them what you offer. You don’t want them leaving the page, skipping your profile or scrolling past. This is where a professional headshot comes in. Make sure your headshot is clear, in the best light and has a flattering pose as well as reflects your brand.
A professional headshot will boast confidence while fostering trust
This isn’t about looks. This is about your image and your presentation.
A good headshot will:
- convey professionalism
- Make you stand out among the others
- Increase your credibility
- Boost your own confidence (a photo you are proud of goes a long way!)
It is time to schedule a professional headshot if you:
- are using an image older than 3 years
- uploaded a selfie for a profile pic
- cropped yourself out of a group image
- threw a quick DIY phone headshot up to get going
