Clients want to know who they’re doing business with and are more motivated to do business with people they know and trust. The quicker you’re able to go from a faceless business person to a real human being, the faster you’re going to be able to create real relationships with clients.
Our brains are wired to see and recognize faces. Businesses pay hundreds of dollars for logos, color schemes, branding etc, but fail to recognize, the value of their own business portrait is far greater than any logo.
How do you want clients to see YOU?
How do you want potential employers to see you when they search your social media profiles? Research has shown, humans make trait inferences from facial appearance in photos at lightning fast speeds. Viewing an image for less than 1/10th of a second is all we need to create judgments about a person’s character.
What does your "digital resume"(social media) say about you, starting with your professional portrait?
In a world where social media is the new "resume", it is as important as ever to make a GREAT first impression of yourself. When it comes to business, job searches or just overall appearance & branding, social media is usually the first-place people will look to find out more about you, & your business. A great executive portrait helps to develop a professional image.
What Should you wear when taking an executive portrait?
In today's business world IMAGE IS EVERYTHING so make sure your first impression is a good one! The outfit you would wear to an interview or to meet a new boss is the best outfit for your corporate portraits. Your “go to” outfit could be any color. Don’t get stuck thinking you have to wear dark colors, but don’t go too crazy on the patterns, unless that’s your “go to.” The most important thing is for you to love what you’re wearing. Your “go to” is your lucky outfit. It’s the outfit you wore the last time you interviewed or closed a big deal. Make sure your outfit is clean and make sure it’s your “go to.”
