Is Your Headshot up to Date on Google+

Google+ is the next great frontier in social media (and in search engine optimization, but we'll have to leave that for another day) and if you aren't using it then you risk being left behind in the online world.

Carolyn O'Reilly | Better Business Portrait Do You Show Your Face on your Business Card? A new client came into my Calgary portrait studio last week to have a new business portrait made.
