Update Your Business Card Photo Often
Success in Real Estate is closely connected to personal service and trust, and your image is integral to your branding. The following tips may help you obtain an updated photo.
Keep It Current: Was your last photo taken many years ago and have you have drastically changed since? Maybe it is time for a new photo? Someone might have your card and you walk in but they are looking for a person 15-20 years younger. I have had that happen with other people and it is pretty embarassing! (not my card)
Go Professional: Trained photographers capture you at your most flattering angles, using lighting to your advantage. The professionals photoshop the flaws and enhance the color and image is typically better.
Background: Choose a background that contrasts your outfit. Wear something business professional but maybe a bright colored jacket so clients will remember your name.
Go Digital: You'll need digital files, not prints, for uploading to your website, print shop, etc.
In a Pinch: Experiment with someone's digital camera and get some photos taken of you to update your photo for websites until you can get a professional photo done. The beauty of digital is that the person at the end of the camera can take 20-30 photos until you find the one you really like and delete the others.
