As a real estate agent or executive, your headshot is often the first impression potential clients have of you. It’s important to ensure your headshot reflects your professionalism, approachability, and personal brand. In this blog, we’ll discuss the importance of headshots for realtors and why, at Sharp Frame Media, we decided to offer professional headshots to our real estate agents.
Why should Realtors use a professional headshot?
First impressions are everything in the real estate industry, and your headshot is often the first impression potential clients will have of you. A professional headshot can help you build trust with potential clients and establish yourself as a reputable real estate agent. Your headshot can also help you differentiate yourself from other agents or executives and create a personal brand that sets you apart.
We know that investing in a professional photographer can make a big difference in the quality of your headshot. Any professional photographer will know how to use lighting and angles to make you look your best and can help you create a professional and approachable headshot. At Sharp Frame Media, we understand the importance of branding and marketing for every single one of our real estate agents. All of your professional headshots have a duration of 1 hour that includes two changes of outfits for only $250. All of our professional headshot sessions take place at the Makers Gym located at 7511 Main St STE 200, Frisco, TX 75034.
In addition, we like to get to know their personality and style to make it match with the perfect headshot that best represents them. Below are some tips we give our real estate agents and executives before their headshots.
Tips for an Effective Headshot:
Your headshot should reflect your professionalism, so make sure to dress appropriately. Choose clothing that is clean, ironed, and fits well. Avoid busy patterns or logos, as they can be distracting in a headshot. Solid colors in neutral or muted tones are a safe choice. You want your clothing to complement your features and not detract from them.
While it’s important to maintain a professional look in your headshot, you also want to show some personality. Your headshot should be approachable and friendly. Smile, look directly at the camera, and avoid overly serious or stern expressions. You want your headshot to convey that you are someone clients can trust and feel comfortable working with. Some of the posing may not feel natural but listen to the professional guidance from your photographer for best results.
Update Your Headshot Regularly
Your headshot should be updated regularly to reflect changes in your appearance and personal brand. As a general rule, you should update your headshot every 2-3 years. Updating your headshot regularly shows that you are active and engaged in your professional career, whether it is in real estate or as an executive.
In conclusion, headshots are an essential part of a real estate agent and executive’s marketing toolkit. Your headshot should be professional, approachable, and reflect your personal brand. By following these tips, you can create a headshot that will help you build trust with potential clients and stand out from the competition. If you still don’t have a professional headshot or you are looking to update your headshot and live in the DFW area, give us a call today and we will take care of you.
