How people see you makes a difference in your business.
You may have heard about this phrase — positioning is the new currency. But what does this mean?
It goes without saying that people are influenced by entrepreneurs who they can relate to or look up to.
In layman’s terms, how people see you and perceive you is exactly WHAT and HOW they think of you in their mind.
So most of the time were talking about brand image, brand stature and message positioning but very rarely we talk about simple things that impact how people see you in photos such as how your sitting to the camera.
Take my video below as an example where I am sitting down and take note of the camera angle. Although this shot may seem cool and interesting especially with Mr. Poodle sitting right next to me, I can tell you two reasons why this shot isn’t great:
- You can see the lines in my forehead, which is a little creepy; and
- YOU ARE LOOKING DOWN AT ME
Watch my Live Video: Learn how to project yourself in a leadership position by simply adjusting the camera angle.
What does positioning tell us?
If I want you to have someone become a part of your tribe and bring them over to your side, to learn and to understand value from you, you want them to be able to look up to you as a thought leader and as an expert, right?
So that’s the thing you need to keep in mind when your doing your photos or headshots.
- The goal is for people TO WANT to know more about you by putting yourself in a leadership position.
- You want to make sure that people are NOT looking down at you — no matter that might be cool shot!
And don’t forget, when you’re doing a live video or photos for social media or your headshot, place yourself in a way that makes your audience want to look up to you as a thought leader and as an expert.

How you position yourself and people perceive you can make or break your business — make it count.
