Importance of a Professional Headshot

They say that a photo is worth a thousand words. While this saying has been overdone, especially in the professional photography world, we do have to agree with it. This is especially so in the world of corporate headshots! Since most of us check out professionals to hire online, rather than in-person, it’s important that the online presence is professional, intentional, and just right for the final effect.

Headshots done right!
When you’re in the professional world, you get a chance to show online browsers who you are just by putting up the right headshot for them to see front and center. When done properly, the right headshot will:

Show your personality in a professional way: No stilted smiles or awkward positions, here! You can use a headshot to have a professional yet natural and relaxed shot that will instantly put the viewer at ease.

Show that you are trustworthy: While the positioning in the photo is great for a personality-loaded shot, it’s also going to help show that you are a true professional who has put the time and effort into getting proper headshots done. It can help the customer know that you’re the real deal and worth reaching out to.

Help you engage interested customers: Customers want to see professionalism and openness when they are searching for who’s out there that can help them out. When a headshot conveys that to the searcher, they’ll be a lot more willing to reach out and get in touch than someone who has stilted or — worse — unprofessional photos up on their website.
