An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today
March 26th at 12pm EST / 9am PST
Visual marketing content – photos, infographics, graphs, videos or illustrations – is often proven to catch more attention and travel further on the social web than text alone. Can marketers build effective messages into these shareable pictures and graphics?
Today, images are created and shared instantly with the click of a smartphone button, and networks like Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are all fueled in large part by consumption of images, sometimes with small amounts of text. Even full-length articles require images in order to get the clicks and attention of readers online. Clearly, images are a major driver of web behavior, both because they grab attention, and because they don’t demand it for more than a few moments – so how can professionals use them to communicate valuable ideas, whether simple or complex?
Join us as our panel explores the best practices for leveraging visual components on the social web. We’ll ask:
- What is the evidence that images are more effective attention-grabbers?
- Where are the most effective images produced and by whom?
- What kinds of images work best for marketing?
- Do professionally-produced images work better than smartphone shots of current events?
