4 Reasons to Include your Profile Photo in Business Emails

4 Reasons to Include Your Profile Photo in Business Emails

Including your profile photo in your business emails is one of the most underused, but effective ways of personalising your correspondence. It’s such a simple and great function to include in your business emails but in my experience hardly anyone uses it and I think they are seriously missing a trick.  Almost all email providers give the option of adding a profile picture in your email footer, just as you would in social media.  And there are so many advantages to getting your employees to have headshots uploaded to their email address.

Blog Photos for East Midlands Designer Outlet

Bloglovin “A Little Lilly” at East Midlands MacArthur Glen retail outlet

Fashion blogging is big business these days and young, fashion savvy women are doing really well at it. It has always been quite a source of intrigue for me as to how it all works! Having the most wonderful day out shopping with your pals; a bit of civilized luncheon and then bringing home bag loads of swag and extolling it’s virtues “on the blog”, and being paid, seems too good to be true!!. ……..And what do they say about “if it sounds too good to be true” ?! …..So, when I was asked to take photos for fashion and lifestyle blogger  “A Little Lilly” in her collaboration with MacArthur Glen at The East Midlands Designer Outlet, I was delighted! Phew! I think I’ll have some of that!

Tollerton Playgroup celebrates it’s 50th anniversary this year! This has probably got to be a record for longevity of playgroups! For many years it ran successfully in the old St Peter’s church hall in the village, but then in 2010, the long-waited purpose built building, (which is annexed to Tollerton primary school,) began!  Here’s a link to the photos taken at the time:

Why a great Headshot can make you rich

 headshots Nottingham headshot photographer Why a great headshot can make you rich.

As time goes by, there is an increased awareness of the value and importance of social platforms like LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.

 

All of these media are driving consumer engagement in both the business and corporate world. They are visual mediums which clearly attract more people when they are complete and include full bios and photographs:- and that includes your professional headshot. Your headshot will elevate your online presence. It has been likened to a corporate handshake in a virtual world, which gives you the power to make the right impression and set the appropriate tone by investing in your brand. In a world where anyone serious about their career or business has a personal brand, it’s important to control and manage how people see you.

The fact is, a good headshot will evoke greater trust, authenticity and greater interest in you and your business. People want to know who they are dealing with, so your headshot will ensure that your first impression makes a positive impact.

In the same way that you wouldn’t attend a business networking event without your business card, not bothering with a headshot on your on-line media can have the same negative effect.   You need every single advantage there is to ensure business success. People want to know the face behind the name. Your headshot should encourage people to engage with you. People want to do business with those they know, like and trust, so clearly, if your headshot represents you in a personable and professional way you are already on the way to being someone they want to engage, work and do business with.

Thankfully, the formal, pen holding, over staged poses have reached their sell by date for today’s socially conscious, savvy and connected customer.  Today’s professional has a headshot that shows approachability, vibrance and confidence. A great headshot will let your personality shine through and will send out the right message about you.

As a small business owner or corporate professional, people often underestimate the value of their headshot. Just look at how many people are happy to have an “egg” or “shadow”  icon to represent them on Twitter or LinkedIN.   They are missing a small but vital link in the marketing process. Your headshot is a critical component for your personal branding strategy. You need a headshot that matches your brand, so keep your image consistent, personable and professional.
