Photos Worth A Thousand Words

Posted on May 16, 2016

We have heard it before, pictures are worth a thousand words & we are passionate about sharing photos with our audience for that very reason! Why is it so important to share photos with your text in your online marketing campaigns? Well, we live in the age of visuals. Everywhere we go, a message is being communicated to use through a photo. Instagram is one of the largest growing apps on the market & it is simply to share photos with.


Everyone has a camera in their pocket thanks to smartphones and so there is no need to explain something in writing when it can be captured and sent in a moments notice. Did you know: Ten percent of photos taken by humankind took place in the last 12 months? Isn’t that incredible?

Jeff Bullas shares some great tips with us:
