Your personal brand depends on you putting your best face forward, it tells a story and that’s the story of you.
Investing in fresh, high quality and relevant images of ourselves is crucial if we want to connect with our audience through marketing channels like Instagram and Facebook. People connect with people, not with brands, and so when you are a small business competing with the masses, connecting with your potential clients on a personal level through pictures of yourself is an absolute must.
According to the Huffington Post, posts on LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram that include an image receive 120 – 180% more visibility and engagement.
People do business with people and creating that connection through regular use of images of yourself, or your team creates trust. And trust builds long-lasting relationships, which is what we all want, right?
I would say images of the business owner are one of the biggest hurdles I run into when building websites for my clients. Most people understand the importance of images in creating a strategic and beautiful website and come ready with either professional product shots or some well-thought-out, beautifully curated lifestyle images that represent the services they offer.
When it comes to images of themselves though I usually hit a wall. People don’t have them and usually feel the time and money investment required to get them just isn’t at the top of their list of priorities.
But creating a genuine, authentic and engaging connection with your audience absolutely requires them to see who they’re doing business with!
If you rely on digital marketing for your business in ANY way, then using personal brand photography is vital.
So why can’t I just take pics of myself on my iPhone I hear you ask?
Well, you can! But lesser quality images are going to be reflected in your clients’ view of your business. If you devalue your brand in this way, then your potential clients will lose trust in the quality of what you deliver. Every connection we make with our potential clients will influence the way they think about us and our business.
But organising my own photoshoot is time-consuming and expensive. And frankly, I don’t love getting my photo taken anyway!
I get it! Organising a photo shoot session can be pricey, time-consuming and a bit daunting, especially if you don’t love getting pictures taken of yourself.
So what’s the solution?
I was having the same problem with pics of myself for my social media and website. So I decided to step my photography game up a notch and take a long-loved hobby and turn it into another string to my bow.
I addressed the pain points of:
the awkwardness a traditional personal brand photoshoot can entail
By creating a package where for less than $800 you can get 50+ high resolution, quality images, shot in an amazing location, hand-picked for its unique vibe. The whole process takes only 90 minutes and I make you feel totally at ease while you’re at it.
This is a totally new way of looking at getting personal brand photography.
It allows you to update your images regularly with its affordability and quick timeframe. This means your audience will always be delivered fresh content and will be connecting with you in a genuine and much deeper way than simply posting stock photography.
A beautiful grid is one thing. But a beautiful grid that truly represents you and your brand through authentic and genuine photography is a whole other thing.
