A headshot these days is a curious thing. Unless you are a model / actor, most are viewed at about an inch high on your social media profile or About Us web page. Maybe you think, ‘well, it’s only small. It’s not that important.’ But this might be the first impression that a future client or employer has of you, and first impressions are hard to change.
While a picture of you relaxing by the pool or in the bar is perfect for showing your Facebook friends how great your life is, it might not be the message you want to send to your business peers. And if you have spent a tidy sum of both time and effort creating your branding and website, how much is that undermined by a grainy, poorly lit, or unprofessional photograph?
Even LinkedIn highlights the importance of getting your headshot right - see here. They even go as far as to say “Typically, we’d recommend having a professional photographer take your headshot… On average, this will cost you between $200-$400.”
I bet that woke you up. How much??? But yes, this is a fair price for a professional headshot session. However, many people - especially small business owners and jobseekers - would see this as an expense too far.
So how’s this for an offer?
