Better ways to get more visual

It’s easy to write a great piece and then just stick in a product photo almost as an afterthought. I think we all need to think in more visual terms however. In Best Practices for Adding Great Pictures To Every Post on the Orbit Media blog, there are some really good ideas for including images to make an article clearer, more memorable and more shareable. We all know that short paragraphs, subheaders, bullets, bolding and links make a piece easier to scan, but it’s images that pull people in.

Topics in the article include:

  • Use many visuals in each article
  • Add charts and graphs
  • Put people pictures on every post
  • Images with quotes and headlines
  • Videos with compelling thumbnails
  • Infographics
  • Illustrations
  • Animated GIFs and Memes
  • Stock photos
  • Images that won’t get you sued
