Why Get a Professional Headshot? Here are Three Reasons!

If it has been a while since you’ve had a professional headshot, you can get one at Conclave—for free—thanks to Platinum Guild International and the AGS Young Titleholders! Not sure if you need one? Here are three reasons why they’re important.

1. Adds credibility online

A good headshot gives you credibility. Potential customers who find you online, whether through your company’s website or on social media sites like LinkedIn, want to see you at your professional best. First impressions are critical!

2. Maintains relevancy

In today’s digital age, relevancy is important for any business that wants to maintain success for years to come. A good way to stay relevant is to be authentic. People want to see the people behind the brand.

3. Boosts your confidence

Anyone can quickly snap a photo of themselves, but it’s best to leave it to the pros. A professional photographer will use proper lighting, has an eye for the best backgrounds, and has the experience to photograph you at the most flattering angles. Knowing you have a great photo gives you the confidence to show it off!

Are you ready for your close-up? Then come to the Networking Area on Monday, April 25th from 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. It’s a great opportunity to get a new professional photo, and best of all, it’s free!
