Do people look at my headshot? Do they care what I look like? As long as I do my job well, that’s all that matters right?
If you’re like most small business owners, having a profile photograph is an afterthought. After all, there are so many things you’re working on, how you look to the world is probably the last thing on your mind. Unfortunately, your about page is the first thing your clients look for, and your headshot is probably your client’s first impression of you.
I don’t have time for headshots!
The last time you thought of your headshot was probably when your web developer asked you for a photo to use. Some people pull an old staff photo which makes them look like an automaton, others find their latest group shot and cut their head out of it. Who has time, right? There’s marketing to do, clients to take care of, your actual business to run!
You probably thought it’s just temporary, but 3 years on you’ve never done anything about it. But it just takes an hour to have a professional session with us, which gives you photographs to use across a range of media!
It’s good enough right?
When you use a casual photo of yourself, it may indeed look friendly and happy. But the background is distracting, you can’t see your expression well, and frankly it just doesn’t work. Do you want to look like you’re working from your kitchen? If you look too cheap to have a professional photograph, chances are your clients infer your services must be cheap too! Now you’re wasting time with tyre kickers!
Your profile photograph shouldn’t just show what you look like. It should actively build a connection with your client, by showing your qualities and personality. Which person would you feel more comfortable in calling? Which headshot do you think will attract a higher calibre of clients?
Make it easy for clients to trust you
Everyone is busy nowadays. Your clients are finding a dozen professionals in their area, and looking through websites wondering who to call first. Why not show yourself as a competent, friendly professional they can trust? They’ll be relieved to finish their search and get back to their lives.
