THE HEADSHOT IS THE NEW HANDSHAKE

Here are some helpful ideas you may want to consider for yourself and your associates.

If you thought only actors needed professional headshots think again.

It is essential in today’s 21st century to look your best for clients during a quick web search. Having a professional headshot that presents the way you look now will help increase your chances of building business.

Avoid using photos that include other people, or that are amateur looking cellphone images. Also avoid photos that are several years old. The former comes off as lazy and financially challenged; the latter can seem deceptive if your looks have changed since the picture was taken.

Create consistency by using the same style photo for a number of social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. They don’t all have to be the same shot, but they should all represent the same quality and style, which is why professional photography is the way to go.
