Why a headshot?
If you're like most people, you may answer with something like "my company said I needed one for our website" or "I need one for my business cards" or "I need to update my LinkedIn profile". These answers aren't wrong, but I'll ask again - WHY do you need an image for your website, cards, or LinkedIn?
you never get a second chance...
You know how this cliche ends. The first impression - THIS is your "why". Your headshot is probably the first chance you have to make an impression on many potential clients. Like it or not, your headshot may be the difference between a click, a further read, and a potential new client contacting you, or back to Google to check out someone else who seems to have more expertise. What is your headshot saying about you?
So...why are you still using that old headshot or selfie?
I get it. You're had photos taken before that you hated. You may not even be sure why - maybe something was off with your expression, your hands looked weird, or the angle was unflattering. In any case, it didn't project the image of the confident and capable professional you are. It did nothing to increase your perceived level of expertise in the eyes of your potential clients. I've been there. I promise, there's a better way.
You need more than just looking good. You need a compelling image that will show your ideal client who you are, not just what you look like - and why YOU are the one to hire.
