Build Trust with a professional photo of You on your Website.
Imagine the ideal business person… someone you like, someone you can relate to, someone you can trust.
What does a successful business person looks like? What is the first thing that comes to mind?
A smiling face, someone who looks you in the eye, a good listener, a smart dresser with a firm handshake?
Your professional photo should should convey Confidence and it must convey Trust!
What does your business photo say about you? Does it say you are someone who pays attention to detail? Or, does it say that you settle for the easy path?
Are you in business attire? Are you well groomed? Are you in a well lighted, professional setting?
If not, then how do you expect to gain trust and confidence from your website visitors if you don’t include a “professional” photo on your website or LinkedIn profile?
People want to do business with people they like! They don’t want to buy from your logo or a brand, they want to purchase from a person - someone they can build a connection, trust, and rapport.
Does you profile photo make a positive first impression? or a negative one?
