A very common question we get asked is, why do I need a professional corporate headshot? Our answer is simple: if you want to look like you are a professional business person, then you need to have a professional corporate headshot. You might think well I can get away without spending any money and use a selfie or a photo you like which was captured by your partner or friends. This might save you a few quid but think about what you are doing to your business social media profiles. Your corporate headshot will be seen on the ‘about us’ or ‘meet the team’ pages on your company website, so in our opinion, it is critical that you look professional. Potential clients will always want to know what you are all about and will check out your company website to put a face to a name. So, using an inferior headshot is not a good idea as it gives a bad first impression.
Another very important reason to get a professional corporate headshot is your LinkedIn profile page. LinkedIn is the king of business social media, and if you are in business, you will have a LinkedIn profile page. So again, potential clients or employers will be checking you out on your profile page. The first thing they will look at is your profile photo, as pictures speak louder than words, and your eye always goes to photos on a page as you can gather an impression quicker than reading text. Use a professional corporate headshot on your LinkedIn profile page. It might cost you a couple of hundred pounds, but in the long run, it could get you a new client or job.
