Whether you’re currently looking for new opportunities, have a new job, or are just looking to upgrade your online business profile or website, a business photographer can help! Having business portraits taken can have a multitude of benefits, and can be used in a variety of places.
If you’re looking to create a more professional website, one thing you can do is include business headshots in the “About Us” or “Meet the Team” sections of the site. Putting a face to the names of the people your clients deal with on a daily basis helps bridge the gap at a time like this when everything is being done over the phone and online. Including business portraits on your website or even in your email signature can make each online interaction more personalized. Branding photography and getting professional shots of your products is another great way to make your website more professional.
Whether you are on LinkedIn or any other social media business platform, having a great business headshot is key to making a great first impression. Especially if you are currently looking for new opportunities, your profile often contains your headshot front and centre. If you’re applying for a professional role, and your latest headshot is you at a bar 10 years ago, it might not leave a very professional impression on the recruiter trying to make the determination as to whether you would make a great fit at the company. Hiring a professional photographer to take professional business headshots is the best option for making sure your best foot is always forward.
Once you have your business headshot, you’ll realize how often you need it. Especially in a working world where everything is currently done online, a business headshot can be used for virtual events. If you are speaking at an event for example, a headshot is typically used in the promotion of the speaking engagement. It is usually seen on the website for the event as well. If you are attending a virtual event, and your company has a virtual booth set-up, you can usually promote the booth with headshots of who potential customers would be meeting with if they enter your booth. Having your business headshot ready and having your colleagues have similar ones can be the reason a potential customer decides to step into your virtual booth for a chat.
