/ why get professional headshots?

Here’s an interesting fact: did you know that human’s attention span (from 6 to 8 seconds) is shorter than a goldfish’s (9 seconds)? Fascinating, yet pretty scary, right?

It’s no secret, that we live in times where our personal brand is exposed online 24/7. People can find us on social media apps, networking platforms, personal work and corporate websites, membership pages. And they do.

So, when recruiters, hiring managers or possible clients look into your online profile, you’ve got some work to do in a very short amount of time. And in fast-paced and competitive online world, these few seconds could be the difference in getting noticed, getting hired, making the sale or missing the opportunity.

In fact, your professional headshot is first (an often only) chance to grab your client’s attention, show your personality, and invite them to see your portfolio. Good and confident professional business headshot will give you credibility and will make you look trustworthy.

That’s why, your personal or business profile picture is a big deal. And that’s why you need one now!
