One of the most important elements of your People Walker profile is your photo. It’s one of the first things that will grab potential Clients’ attention, and since they may be inviting you to meet them for a walk, it’s important that they’re able to recognize you.
We recommend by having a good photo is an extremely important part of your Walker profile and can make a real difference to your business.
While you are in control of your business, we encourage you to consider the following when choosing a photo to use for your Walker profile.
Clients want to see you in your profile photo, so they know who they are meeting up with for a walk. Sharing your face and smile is a way to gain a Client’s trust upfront and potentially book more walks.
From a subject perspective, more successful photos:
- Is a headshot of just you—no one else!—from the chest up.
- Have you in the center, smiling at the camera.
- Have your eyes visible and gazing straight at the camera.
If you’re not sure how to achieve the results you’re looking for with a photo, we suggest that you ask a friend or hire a headshot photographer. It’s an upfront investment that will pay off down the line because it shows that you care about your business. When Clients see that you care about how you present yourself, they may be more likely to hire you!
