The Importance of Having Quality Images on Your Website and Social Media Pages




In an age of visual culture and 
social media consumption, high 
quality images aren't a luxury,
they're a necessity for attracting 

potential clients.



People often overlook their use of images on their site. Is the risk worth it? Users decide if they'll stay on a site within the first 10-20 seconds.

 

What can you do to improve engagement? 
 
1. If you have an online store or website you need to include high definition images that drive higher engagement and sales.

2. If you use Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter as an important part of your social media marketing strategy then you need to include photos in your updates and not just text and links.


There are 2 essential things to keep in mind when it comes to 

 adding images to your website or Social Media accounts:

    1. Images must be high quality
    2. Images must be relevant to your content

 












Now that you have a grasp on why it is so 
important to include a good quality image on any form of digital marketing, the next questions is... where can you find these images?

Each supplier has their own sets of prohibitions and conditions that you should be mindful about. Just read and understand the license agreement so you don’t have to worry about legal issues in the future.
