Everyone Needs an Updated Headshot!

If it has been a while since you have taken a professional headshot, then it’s time to consider getting one taken. There are several ways that your business can benefit if you get a professional head shot taken. A good headshot is also great to use on all your social media accounts. In our current age of technology, a headshot is the first chance someone has to form an opinion of you-make it a good one!

Below are some of the benefits of taking corporate or even just a personal headshots with Missy Goldwyn Photography.

Make The Right First Impression
First impressions are obviously very important. As much as we like to think that people don’t judge you when they first see you, or a picture of you, they do. The first impression that clients get could be one of the main factors that determines whether they decide to do business with you. A professional headshot will help your potential clients get the right first impression. For example, when people see your professional headshot, they can get the impression that you are warm, creative and approachable. Your clients are also more likely to take you seriously if you have a professional headshot. We have all seen terrible examples of iphone headshots…don’t make that mistake! Invest in a professional headshot, it will be a smart thing to do for your business, and yourself.
It is important to remember that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. As I said before, people have a tendency to form first impressions very quickly. In fact, a potential customer may form a first impression of you and your business within a few seconds of looking at your picture. It’s easy to guarantee a good first impression-Get a professional headshot taken!

Stand Out From The Competition
One of the challenges that comes along with running a business is standing out from the competition. There may be many other businesses that offer the same products and services as you. However, if you have a professional headshot, and if that headshot shows confidence, and likability, then you will likely be able to stand out from those other businesses.
A headshot is more than just an image. It helps you build your professional brand. Therefore, if you want to give yourself a competitive edge, you definitely want to make sure that you have a professional headshot, and you want to keep it current and update it yearly. The headshot you took 15 years ago is NOT ok to be using currently!
Most people underestimate the importance of having a good head shot. However, a picture really is worth a thousand words. It can convey to your customers that you are a professional and serious about what you do. It shows you invested in your first impression, and it helps you get taken seriously. A good head shot can also help you attract more customers. Furthermore, you will be able to separate yourself from your competitors and build your brand if you have a good headshot.
