Sharing images across social media platforms can be a great way to capture the attention of your audience and customers. In the same way retailers dress a shop front, or send a catalogue in the mail, images have always been a vital part of marketing your brand.
Social media is no different, and using images to accompany your content have shown to increase results dramatically.
The article below from the Federal Government’s Digital Business site takes you through some of the social media platforms most commonly used for image sharing. An important note to remember – images are subject to copyright laws, so please ensure you have permission before sharing images from others (this also includes pictures you find via Google Images)!
There are also some fantastic resources available online to create your own unique images to share – well worth it if you have some time to spare – see the reference article below
