Did you know that it takes just 100 milliseconds (1/10 of a second) for a person to create a first impression of a new face?
Yes, within a blink of an eye, one can judge whether to trust you solely by the look on your face or visual image.
Why does this matter? As a business owner or manager, you are the face of your brand– and you don’t have a second chance to make a first impression!
When people see your image, they quickly form an opinion about your company or services based on what they see.
In today’s highly competitive digital business landscape, presenting a confident, professional image is imperative. Most consumers start their purchase journeys with online research, and your corporate headshot is among the first interactions they have with your brand.
So ask yourself– how are your corporate headshots portraying you or your company on your website, directories, social media profiles, and other platforms?
At Linda Kazares Photography, my mission is to help my clients make the best first impression with perfect corporate headshots.
I’ve been capturing beautiful moments of my clients for years, and it’s always my joy to see one more client achieve their objectives through my work.
Why Do Corporate Headshots Matter?
I’m always taken aback by how much entrepreneurs and business leaders across various industries overlook the importance of professional headshots.
Some business owners have said, “But Linda, why can’t I just crop my family photo and still look good?”
If you think the answer is yes, then you’re in for a big shock. A corporate headshot can make or break your brand image. Business growth relies heavily on branding– this is one key reason some businesses succeed and others fail.
Your potential customers want to know who you are and why they should purchase from your company. By utilizing a professional headshot and cohesive corporate branding, you can help them do this.
At Linda Kazares Photography, I summarize the importance of corporate headshots because of their roles in the following:
Helping put a name/face to your business
Presenting a professional image
Making the best first impression
Creating a consistent brand image across multiple channels
Showing the human side of your business
While you can choose to use a selfie or a cropped photo for your profile, what does this tell your target audience? The right headshot conveys so much about you and your work, which is why I’m passionate about corporate headshot photography.
My clients come back to me time and time again with positive feedback about increased traffic to their websites, more engagement, and attracting more attention from potential employees after their corporate branding sessions.
So, what is everyone seeing on your LinkedIn profile? Is it an image close to what your peers in the industry have? Or is it the same profile picture from 10 years ago?
Image experts recommend updating your headshots every 1-2 years. So if you haven’t refreshed your headshots for a while, schedule a consultation with me, and let’s elevate your brand image!
With so little time to make an impression, you don’t want to get it wrong. My job is to help you nail it and get that headshot that perfectly reflects your brand.
Whatever your professional background or industry, I’ll work with you to create the right image with perfect headshots.
