“You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.”
We have all heard this and it is even truer now that everything is online.

Choosing a specific color to feature in your business portrait helps to solidify your brand.
As more and more professionals are realizing the need for an online presence and the need to make that presence as personal as possible, many of you have a headshot that you have put online. Is that image the best impression of you? Is it professional, properly lit and posed and does it convey the message that you want it to? Most everyone these days seems to have a camera and is ready to take your picture – is that the type of image that you want to represent you, your business and your professional image? Are you ready to update your business portrait?

Business card images are often the first impression a new or prospective client gets. Make sure your business portrait is clean, clear, in focus, well lit and cropped appropriately for the most impact.
When you use your headshot on a monthly or quarterly newsletter, you will reinforce your image in your clients mind. Would you rather do business with the smiling face you see on the newsletter, or the impersonal company that appears in the letterhead?
Same as for the newsletter. If you don’t send a newsletter but often have the need to send personal correspondence, reinforce your image to the client. A great headshot provides a friendly face to put with any news that is sent. If this is a first contact with a client, chances are much higher that the content will actually get read when there is a face connected with the information
The above sites, plus all the other Web 2.0 sites you use for building visibility and connecting with others. A business portrait is a core element of your standard corporate profile.
This is a great place to make your e-mails more personal with a great headshot. Of course, with your corporate e-mail, you need to comply with company guidelines.
If you have a blog or traditional Web site, you should post your business portrait, preferably on the homepage. And if you are an author, public speaker or an expert source for the press, include an area where event planners, clients and reporters can download a variety of headshots of you in different sizes.
These tools help you store, archive and rate your favorite content on the web and allow you to upload a profile. As with social -networking sites, they provide an opportunity for you to include your business portrait.
Blog-commenting software like Disqus (pronounced discuss) allows you to upload a profile and headshot. Your profile is automatically included when you post comments on Disqus-enabled blogs.
It’s great for people to connect a face with a voice. Upload your business portrait on Skype – especially if you don’t have a webcam to make video calls.
Always include your business portrait on your Twitter profile. You can also customize your Twitter page with any images and backgrounds you choose.
