4 Reasons You (Really) Need a Professional Headshot

Evansville Headshots

Have you ever considered the reasons why you need a professional headshot?

Sure, everyone seems to need one, but why?

Can a good headshot help you with your business?

Check out these 4 reasons why you don’t need just a headshot, but a great one.


1. Your Online Presence IS Your Business 

Over 75% of people use social media and online research to inform their purchasing decisions. That number is even higher when we talk about Millennials (who are now the largest part of the US workforce.) If you are in any kind of business, it is in your best interest to have an online presence that shows potential clients who you are and what you are all about. Also, a great headshot that really captures your personality can help people make a connection before they ever meet you.

2. A Killer Professional Headshot is Perfect for Networking 

Let’s face it, a long-term marketing strategy depends on having a great network of relationships. If you are running any kind of business, leaving a good impression on someone is critical to networking. 

Having a clear, captivating headshot can help people remember you the next time they see you in person.

If your headshot looks like you and isn’t years out of date then you just might be the one person that people remember. Make sure to take advantage of meeting people by connecting with them on social media immediately so they can see that great headshot and can put your face together with your name.

3. Stand Out From Your Competition 

Whether you are in the business of legal services, real estate, consulting, or anything else, chances are that your field is pretty competitive. Your potential client can easily see all of the options they have by a quick search of their phones.

If you have a website, an authentic social media presence, and great headshots and brand images, you will eliminate a substantial amount of your competition.

Think about it. Have you ever went into a small business where you walked in and thought, “Nope. Nope, nope, nope. Not for me”?

For todays consumer, that feeling happens all the time ONLINE.

 To make sure that you are showing your business in the best possible light,  have professional photos of you and your team that really showcase what kind of service a client can expect.

4. Because It’s Hard to Convey Tone in an Email

How many times do we assume tone in an email? In our minds we can often get off on the wrong foot in an email exchange because of a tone that we apply to a message. The sender may type something that they think is perfectly harmless, but when it goes through the filter of a stressful day, you can take it the wrong way.

This works both ways too!

Having a friendly face on as an email signature is a powerful way to make sure that the person on the other end of that email is always reminded that you are a charming and easy to work with person.

Extra Tip:

  • Don’t try and do it yourself with your phone, in front of a brick wall (and apply those horrible filters). Everyone, yes everyone, can tell the difference.
