SHOW THE WORLD WHO YOU ARE!
Think about the importance you place on putting a face to a name … or a voice.Everybody feels the same. Why do newspapers and magazines invariably publish a photo of people they write about? Itʼs human nature to want to see images of the people we are reading about or dealing with. However, increasingly we are connected online to people weʼve never me face to face.
Often we havenʼt even heard them speak. Ask yourself about basic trust. Do you feel more comfortable dealing with people whose face youʼve seen or voice youʼve heard? If we want to attract customers, we must allow them to get to know us. We must share with them more than just our name. You donʼt display your photo as part of your social media and online profiles because of how good looking you are; you want others to relate to you on a more human level.
That is an essential part of developing and deepening your relationships. The essence of social media is engagement, informative conversations and trust. When it comes to choosing your photo, it should be a close-up shot or head shot.
