In this day and age, our professional image is everywhere and easily found, so that’s why it is so important to have one that jumps off the screen. Not in a bad way, mind you, but one that makes someone stop and look.
It is of the utmost importance to have one that reflects professionalism. Personally, if I am looking to hire someone for a job and their image and/or website is unprofessional, I will likely move on to the next business/person. Now, if I find someone whose image is great, and their website is equally good, they have a better chance at getting my business. It really is that simple, and doesn’t even cost that much.
We need to make sure that we are always trying to stay one step ahead of our competition- not only in our customer service, but also in our professional image.
