Headshots can help improve your brand awareness

build trust with your audience with a new headshot

Your updated headshot should reflect your personality and the kind of work you do. Your headshot can also be a great way to show off your brand colors or any logos associated with your organization. Additionally, make sure that any images you use are high quality and professional so people feel like they can trust the work you're doing. Lastly, think about how your image fits into your website, LinkedIN or social media. Consider using a consistent color scheme across all page elements or adding other pictures that help tell the story behind what you are offering. With a well-crafted headshot, potential customers will know whom they're dealing with before ever reaching out for more information. This small detail can give you the confidence you need to do business with your clients or customers. In short, a professional headshot is integral to your personal brand and should not rely on a cell phone selfie. Think of it as another way to make a great first impression on potential customers.

Here are a few general guidelines:

  • If you have undergone a significant change in your appearance, such as a new hairstyle or a significant weight change, it may be time to update your headshot.
  • If you work in an industry where appearance is essential, such as face-to-face sales, acting, or modeling, you may need to update your headshot more frequently to reflect current trends and styles.
  • Suppose you use your headshot for professional networking, such as LinkedIn. In that case, it's a good idea to update it every year to ensure that it is a recent and accurate representation of you.
  • If you use your headshot for professional communications, such as on your website or business cards, you should update it every six months.

Ultimately, deciding when to update your headshot depends on your personal and professional needs.
