What Are Professional Headshots Important?

Have you ever met someone who you immediately felt comfortable with and saw as an expert?

Most people form their “first impressions” of others in less than a few seconds. These early impressions have a big influence on who they hire, buy from, and listen to.

And in today’s digital world, most first impressions occur online.

LinkedIn is used by hiring managers to screen job applicants. Employees’ web profiles are checked by potential clients to discover if they are trustworthy. The company’s About Us page is where investors and donors may learn more about the company’s executives.

Making a solid first impression with these people requires a stunning professional headshot, which has a significant impact on how people form their first impression of you and sets you apart from the competition.
