Having no photography to present for public relations opportunities and social media postings is a very common business error. Having badly shot, a low quality snapshot as your virtual identity piece is an even greater business sin. Many people assume that because they own digital cameras or even worse a camera enabled cell phone they do not need the services of a professional photographer. They can make their own shots.
It’s true; your photography can be a do-it-yourself project. As with most things in this world, you get what you pay for! You end up with bad poses, bad lighting and most importantly a poor public identity! That is why you need the services of a professional studio photographer.
Why risk making a poor first impression which will leave a distinct negative imprint in a prospective client’s mind? If you have chance to draw attention to yourself and your business why not make the best presentation? Perceptions are mostly determined by first impressions and on the competitively crowded internet you rarely get a second look. Your business photography and portraits should present you in a friendly and professional way. They are a measure of your professionalism and show the value you want to project to the marketplace.
How you appear on your websites, social media profiles and your company public relations publications can either add or take away from your professional credibility. The distribution powers of the internet are what truly turbo charges the marketing power of business photography and portraits. Images add clout to business communications. The power of photography is simple…pictures compel viewers to identify with you and to become open to your marketing messaging Why not make a modest investment to guarantee that you capitalize on that potential?
An investment in professionally produced, custom business photography and portraits is a key method to build your professional image.
