Profile Photos are Important

Why Profile Photos Matter & How to Get Good Ones
Does your profile pic differentiate you?

If you’re taking a “one photo fits all” approach to your real estate marketing, you might be missing out on opportunities to showcase your personality, which is a crucial component to building client relationships.

Traditional real estate headshots, while “professional” don’t really tell much of a story. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all… and that’s not great for differentiating yourself on signs or online. While you may be subject to company guidelines with regards to your signs and photos, blogs and social media sites are a great place to introduce more personality. Your interests–from sports to travel–can be great connection points with prospects.

Unfortunately, many people think of social media photos as the equivalent of “sweat pants on Sunday night.” From a bad photos to worse wardrobe choices, you can quickly undermine your credibility online. Very little attention is paid to the impact a professional, yet casual photo can have on your audience.
