Autumn Marketing and Advertising Tips

Beautiful Autumn Background

Not everyone looking for images is experienced in the world of graphic design and image editing or has the artistic ability or the creative tools to see a visual concept and bring it to reality.
Our images can make it easier for your marketing and advertising campaigns to come to life and save you money.
 
No matter what industry you are involved in, here are some autumn marketing and advertising ideas to promote your products or services.

Tip#1 Use special holidays and autumn themed imagery and wording to promote your business and create excitement during the fall season. Use the holidays to create special offers or create your own special holiday to promote.  

Tip#2 There are so many local fall events that are going on in your community from September through November. Ask local fall festivals if they are accepting advertisers or sponsors or you can also buy a booth, if you have a product or service that would do well selling out of a tent.

Tip#3 The easiest way to drive traffic to your Fall marketing campaign is to notify your existing subscribers and contacts. After all, these are people who you know are interested in your products or platform. Whether they're existing customers, previous customers or blog subscribers. They have already been convinced of some element of the value of your company. Use eye catching imagery and creative wording.  

Tip#4 A business is never too small or too large to have a marketing calendar. Plan ahead and be ready for the busy holiday season. It can be challenging to stay on top of current projects while looking ahead to the future, but with a marketing calendar you can make it easier.

Hello September!

Photo ID: #1589493
The summer days are winding down and autumn is fast approaching. Soon it will be time for sweaters, falling leaves and comfy socks.

If you're an avid reader, you probably have a book quote for every occasion. Here are some great quotes for the end of summer and coming autumn that you can pair with some warm autumn images for some of your social media postings and advertising.


“Summer will end soon enough, and childhood as well.”
-George R.R. Martin


 “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
-Anne Bradstreet

“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.”
-William Shakespeare


“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.”
- J.K. Rowling


"The morning had dawned clear and cold, with a crispness that hinted at the end of summer. "
- George R.R. Martin


“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”
- Stephen King


“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke

Photo ID: #1325591

“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love - that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
-George Eliot


“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.”
-Henry Beston

Negative Space Images and Advertising

ID #1642752
 
Negative space is defined as the area that surrounds the subject of an image.

Negative space allows our eyes to focus on the subject of an image, no matter how subtle it may be.

The absence of content does not mean the absence of interest. In fact, negative space often adds interest as it can place a stronger emphasis on the subject and it can evoke more emotions.

ID: #717195




Negative space can give your 
photograph an
entirely different feeling.






Let these images inspire you for your design projects like postcards, posters, web design, and so much more.

You could simply add a little text or a quote for the perfect addition to your project.





ID #1200816


As you will see, any of these beautiful photographs would also create great backgrounds for your websites or or social media pages.

How To Choose The Best Stock Image Site For You


There are a lot of really great stock image sites out there and it might seem difficult to choose the best one for you to use.

Here are some tips to consider when determining the best site for you:

  • How many images will you need? Will you need to purchase single images or would a subscription be a better value for you?
  • How much is your budget? knowing your budget limits will help you to find the right company to work with and the right subscription type.  Paying more doesn't always mean you getting more value.
  • Read the reviews. You'll quickly know by reading reviews if a company is worth giving your money to. Is their customer service willing to help when you run into trouble?
  • Who doesn't love a great deal!? Contact the companies you're interested in and see who has any special offers going that you might not have known about.
  • Make sure you read their terms and usage rules. You might sign up thinking you have the right to use images for commercial projects or print-on-demand. Call or email the company and be clear on your usage and let them tell you exactly what subscription you need to purchase.

Vital Imagery Ltd



I often hear people saying they can just get their images from Google or free stock image sites. The images on most "free" image sites are actually copyrighted and you will be liable for using them even if you are unaware of the infringement. Why take the risk? Use a reputable stock image company and make sure you and your business are not at risk.

Schools are also at risk. Vital Imagery Ltd offers two child-friendly websites specifically tailored for school use. Teachers and Students can safely use the images in class projects without worrying about the student or school being sued.
