As small business owners, there’s always something that needs our attention and energy. Having an updated and professional headshot should be one of those things! While I know it may not always be the most fun task (I get it, not every photographer loves being in front of the camera!), it’s really important that we have professional headshots to grow our brand. These headshots tell our audience so much more about us. Here’s three more reasons you need a professional headshot.
#1: They show that you’re serious about your business.
When you have a professional headshot of yourself, instead of just a random cell phone photo, on your website or social media, it shows you’re serious about what you’re doing. These professional shots demonstrate that you’re willing to put the time and energy into what you do – and that you’re making a commitment to your brand. That’s a powerful statement.
#2: Headshots help with networking.
People have the chance to get to know you (and your face!) before they ever meet you in person. With a professional headshot, you can make a great first impression before you ever even meet those new connections in person. What’s better than that?!
#3: They show your personality!
Not every headshot has to be the boring gray background for a corporate company! There’s no rule saying what a headshot has to look like. Instead, have fun with your headshot and find a unique location or something that fits your branding. This is even more true if you’re a small business owner. Bring your personality to your portraits!
Headshots make it clear that you’re serious about building your brand. Consider where you share photos of your brand to determine what exactly you need – whether it’s a full branding session or a headshot update. Ready for a refresh? Plan your branding session or updated headshots here!
