Visibility and Credibility
It was said by Woody Allen that “eighty percent of success is showing up”. Here at Portrait Towers, we’re inclined to agree… visibility and credibility lead to profitability. So, why would you choose to create a profile at the world’s biggest business meeting, Linked In, and then effectively not ‘show up’, by neglecting to add a headshot photograph?
Visibility is easy to achieve – take out your happy-snappy camera, ask someone to take a photo of you against a brick, or woodchip wall, and upload.
The ‘credibility’ part of the equation is harder to achieve, and this is where a professional portrait photographer can help you. What message do you give to your clients if you use a holiday snap as your Linked In profile picture? How about a picture of you at the pub with a pint of beer? A professional shot will carefully extract the very best of your personality and character, while reducing distractions in the shot.
Don’t forget – Linked In is a huge business meeting. Show your clients you care about detail by including a high-quality headshot as part of your profile.
If someone on your list of Linked In connections has a blank profile picture, please—for their sake—point them in the direction of a professional business portrait photographer.
