The Importance of a Professional Headshot

The first impression is the last impression on your customers, on your clients, and your potential employers. The reality is that we are all judged by our cover. When it comes to professional situations such as job interviews, networking opportunities, personal branding, and the like, the opportunity to make a first impression rarely comes along twice. Your manners, body language, facial expressions, and professionalism are observed with a fine-tooth comb. Here are some reasons why a professional headshot is important:

Personal Branding:

If you want to be taken seriously as a profession, then you must look like one. Numerous interactions with potential employers, coworkers, and customers happen online. They’re not only looking at what you do but they are also looking at who YOU are. This is the opportunity to brand yourself to the outside world. Personal branding encourages recruiters, clients, and consumers to consider working with you and a professional headshot can compel them to meet you in person.

Amateur headshots can damage reliability:

Your amateurish photograph may have a negative connotation to your brand. Maybe your clients may lose confidence in you before you even approach them. Making a small investment in your headshot can go a long way. It shows that you take yourself and your career seriously and makes you seem more approachable. Looking like a professional across your social media pages will lead to a plethora of networking and business opportunities. Consider how this lack of assurance could have a financial impact on your business.

Stay top of the mind:

Personal virtual branding is the new handshake. A visually appealing and professional headshot will help you stay top of mind to the people who are seeking for the opportunity to work with you. People study faces. You should promote that confidence, vitality and charismatic charm about yourself to inveigle people to contact you.

This is your only shot:

No phone photography, selfie stick or 12-megapixel camera can get you the same depth of field, clarity, and professional photo. No one having a time to read more than a few lines on your CV, or business website, in the fast-paced world of today. So, don’t waste the opportunity to make a great impressions, you were never get the opportunity to do to that twice.
