Why do we need a photo of ourselves on your about me page?

After all, people are buying your product or service, so what difference does it make in how you look?

Having a photograph of yourself on your business page immediately enables your customers to connect with you. The old adage that people buy from people is never truer, especially in the current digital universal.

A professional commercial headshot, also known as a photography portrait or headshot will help you stand out from the competition. It helps you introduce yourself to your customers directly.

Many people feel that it’s really awkward having their photo taken, so they try to avoid professional photos by taking a selfie themself at home where it is – safe and unobtrusive.

I agree, having your photograph taken is a bit weird. Over the last 15 years working as a photographer, many people have started a conversation with me that goes something like this.

” Hi Becky, I need a photo of me for my website / about me page / twitter profile / LinkedIn profile and so on but I really really don’t like my photo being taken, I think I am the only person in the world who thinks like this, but can you help me?”

But Yes I can help you! First of all, I’ll share some details with you.

So I understand that it’s a weird thing. It makes you feel nervous and awkward and perhaps reminds you of being a small child with your parents insisting that you stand next to the Christmas tree for an annual photo and perhaps that has scared you for life…Or is that just me? Anyway…

Some people avoid this task so much that they decide not to put a headshot on the “About Me” page of their website. This is not a solution folks. You need to show firstly that you exist, it highlights a level of integrity. It also shows who you are, people really like to see that. It helps reinforce your company brand and reminds viewers that you are authentic and relatable.
