Why are Headshots so Important?
Photos make an important statement. A professional headshot may be the defining moment that gives you a competitive advantage when a potential customer is reviewing your digital identity along side your competitors. A recent study shows that over 50% of B2B buyers browse LinkedIn profiles and take less than 1/10th of a second to draw conclusions of you based on your headshot.
This is also true in the creative spaces for artists, models, actors, and musicians. Our fast paced digital world emphasizes the importance of quality now more than ever before. We all have to stand out from the massive content storm to catch someones eye.
