Ten Reasons to have a professional HEADshot in Ottawa:
The first thing that people do these days before doing business with you or considering hiring you either for employment or a project is Google your name. People will do their research on line and likely land on your social media, Linkedin or website.
Having a professional and flattering photo of yourself is crucial to a positive on-line identity.
Here are ten more great reasons:
- Professional HEADshots show you care about how you look in business. Blog comments, websites, Linkedin profiles all become more ‘pro’ when there is a professional looking HEADshot.
- Websites, social media profiles like Linkedin, seem more believable and trustworthy if there is a professional image of the author.
- People spend more time looking at photos than reading on websites . Your best chance of sticking in your potential clients’ memories is to include a great photo HEADshot of yourself.
- Spending the time and money on a professional HEADshot makes you look successful. Investing this way in yourself, shows your clients you understand that and can do the same for them.
- Poor quality, blurry, pixelated, images look bad. Distracting or unprofessional backgrounds are just as bad. If you are cutting corners on your own personal brand people will assume your quality of work is about cutting corners too.
- Whether it’s you or your company, professional photography is the best way to establish your personal or business brand. Put a face to your name, show your personality to suit your brand. This will make you more memorable and consistent.
- No matter how exciting a brand is, at the end of the day people want to do business with people – not a company. Having photos of the you and your people behind the company builds a connection and trust.
- Get HEADshots done so you’re ready. If you’re a business owner you might be called on quickly by the media to comment on a story or tell your own story in a newspaper. See my last post. The last question the media will ask you is do you have a recent HEADshot? A less-than-desirable or outdated image of you won’t help you.
- Taking the time to get a professionally composed and edited photo of yourself, presented in the best way possible, is not only important for your brand but it will make you feel good too.
