The secret to a great first impression
People find you, they judge you, before they even meet you. We've heard it before: You only get one chance to make a first impression. Today, that a first impression is more likely to happen before you ever have a one-on-one interaction with a customer or potential business relationship. With so many ways for people to learn about your business-either through a visit through your site, LinkedIn profile, Facebook page, or other social media, you need to master your online presence. If you have an amateur headshot, a selfie or even a mediocre professional headshot, are you really presenting yourself in the best light? If you're headshot is a good one, but is completely out of date because of the hairstyle you now have, or the decade it was shot, is that really the strong image you want to represent you now? Ask yourself this: What's holding me back from getting a great-looking new headshot? Is it that you are not comfortable with the camera? Do you not have the time? Well, actually you will have the time at the Women in Product Conference. Just book your time slot with photographer Brook Todd of Alisha + Brook Photographers, sponsored by PayPal, who will put you at ease with his relaxed manner, and make it quick and painless.
Brook and his wide have photographed for the Oprah Show, been interviewed on CNN International, and have photographed events for such companies as Rolls Royce, BMW, Ferrari, Sotheby's, Concierge Auctions, Samsung, and Stella & Dot. Please visit their website at www.BrookTodd.com and be sure to sign up for your fabulous first impression.
The Girls' Lounge is sponsored by PayPal who will also be giving away 5 free headshots during the raffle drawing at 5pm during the Cocktail Reception
Rock your profile
LinkedIn is offering free consultation on LinkedIn profiles along with an opportunity to also get a free LinkedIn profile headshot as well.
