In 2019, a professional headshot is an absolute must. Not only do you need a headshot for your own website and blog, but you also need to promote yourself via social media. So, how DO you brand yourself with a business headshot? Well, your online profiles, such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Linked In are often some of the first places that your potential clients may find out about you and the services that you offer. The headshot that you use for your profile will often be the first introduction to you and to your business. The importance of great business headshot is that it is essentially one of the most valuable tools that you can use to build trust in you as an individual. People connect with people. People hire people. So why not put your best image out there?
First impressions count. You get one chance to make a great first impression.Branding is all about telling the stories behind your company and the products or services that you sell.
