Business Portraits Are A Must
Are you a business owner or entrepreneur? Have a professional business portrait is a must. Business portraits are a great way to connect with potential clients as well as colleagues. Many people use their cell phone as a convenient way to take photographs of themselves...aka selfies.
In today's social media rich environment, it's critical to have a professional business portrait. Your business portrait, which is also known as a Headshot, can be used for your LinkedIn profile picture, your website, your business card, for speaking engagements, and more.
1. Show Yourself
Your business portrait is a great way to connect with potential clients. As small business owners, we are usually the only person in the company. It's easier for people to connect with you by looking at your Headshot versus looking at your companies logo. Your company's logo is not what people are going to connect with unless your are a larger corporation like Louis Vuitton or Coach.
2. Put It Everywhere
As stated above, with the rise and increase of social media, you'll want to to show your Business Portrait everywhere...Facebook, Instagram, your website, LinkedIn, business card, and Twitter. You are the face of your company and prospective clients and customers will be looking for a photograph of you to connect and determine if they would like to work with you. Therefore, make it easy by showing your business portrait everywhere.
3. What Does Your Headshot Say?
What does your headshot say about you? It is so convenient to crop a picture your in with a friend or family member, but what does that say?
I know...I know, you may look great in that picture, as a matter of fact it may be the best you've looked in picture in a while; especially since COVID. However, you want your headshot to stand out. You want your portrait to stand out and be memorable. If you're using a picture that's been cropped or a selfie, it could be seen in an unprofessional light and project a nonprofessional stance. I'm sure you've visited a website or social media platform and seen pictures, you weren't impressed by. Don't allow your headshot to fall in that category.
Things to avoid:
If your business portrait consists of these things, it may be time to consider an updated headshot.
A business portrait is a vital thing to have if you are a business owner. They are used not only for your website, but for social media. Remember, it's important that your business portrait is a great representation of you and your brand, as it's a way for clients and colleagues to connect with you.
