3 Reasons Why a Selfie Just Won’t Cut It Anymore

Image is Everything

It used to be that a selfie would ‘do the job’ but with more and more brick and mortar stores going out of business every day and those that still have a store realising that online marketing is a major part of sustaining and growing their business, selfie photos are no longer enough.

In order to connect with today’s audience, your social media feed needs regular image centric content.  People buy from those they know, like and trust which means that your potenetial clients need to see the person (or people) behind the brand.  Here are three facts about the importance of images:

  • Facebook posts with images get 2.3x more engagement than posts without. (Source https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/visual-content-marketing-strategy)
  • Pictures of faces were 38% more likely to get a like than photos without faces.  Face photos also were 32% more likely to snag a comment too. (source https://blog.hootsuite.com/instagram-photos-with-people-experiment/)
  • LinkedIn members with a professional photo receive 21 times more profile views and 9 times more connection requests. (source https://www.linkedin.com/business/sales/blog/b2b-sales/picture-perfect–make-a-great-first-impression-with-your-linkedi)

Selfies Cheapen You

Think about your selfie, do you look like a successful, busy business owner?  Will it increate your trust factor? Or does it make you look like an amateur? Maybe it’s time to stand out from the hundreds of people who do the same as you with professional Headshot photography.

Ever had a BAD photo taken of you?  You know the one, you can’t even look at it without wincing then throw a lot of phone filters over it in the hope to improve it.  Maybe it’s even the one you had taken when you were on a night out with a glass of wine in hand but hardly screaming ‘professional’.

We know how it feels to look at a photo of yourself and hate it, the ones that make you think ‘do I really look that bad’?  We promise you, you don’t!  But the average person doesn’t know how to capture you in your best light.  We do!
