4 Benefits of Using A Professional Headshot

1. If you operate a small business, a professional headshot will instantly elevate how you are perceived.

First impressions count. A properly lit,  composed, and expressed headshot will underscore your personal commitment to quality and professionalism.

I cite this often, as the author Malcolm Gladwell, of the book BLINK: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking,  has pointed out, people will form an opinion about your photo within 3 seconds. Possibly before they have read anything you have written.

2. A profile with a photo will get many more clicks than a profile without one.

According to By the Numbers: 125+ Amazing LinkedIn Statistics "adding a professional photo to your profile makes you 14 times more likely to be found on LinkedIn."

3. People hire individuals not companies.

OK this one is obvious. But in case it isn't, your headshot is an introduction.

4. It may be requested.

You may have an upcoming speaking engagement, are asked to write a guest column for a magazine or blog, or are getting ready to publish a book. Wouldn't it be great to have a photo you are comfortable with, available to send on a moments notice?
