We are often asked why you should get a professional LinkedIn profile photo. Here are three simple answers.
- You will look professional. It’s as simple as that. Your LinkedIn profile page is your business shopfront. This is where potential clients and employers will get the first impression of you as a business person. So, would you want to get into business with a shop owner who had amateur handwritten signs outside his shop? No, of course not. So spend some money and hire a professional corporate portrait photographer and ensure you look your best; above all, this will make you look professional.
- Pride. You should want to look your best on your LinkedIn profile page. We assume that in your day-to-day business, you take great care over how you run your business and how you look after your clients. So why cut corners when it comes to your LinkedIn profile photo? Remember, it is the first thing people look at when they visit your LinkedIn profile page, so it makes sense that they get a good first impression. as we have said many times before, you don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression.
- Confidence. If you spend a relatively small amount of money and get a professional LinkedIn profile photo, you can sit back and know that people viewing your LinkedIn profile page will be seeing you in your best light. A professional corporate portrait photographer will advise you on the best wardrobe, how to stand, and the best stance. Also, advice on expressions and will be capturing your LinkedIn profile photo with a professional portrait lens. They will also have good quality studio lighting, flattering you and softening harsh shadows on your face. Finally, they will be used to working on headshots using the latest version of Photoshop to remove any spots, soften eye bags and tidy up any imperfections.
