Like with video marketing, photography is key to your marketing strategy. It’s widely known that visual images tend to resonate more with consumers and audiences. Many marketers say that photography is an important form of content for their business.
In this digitally inclined world, businesses should be prioritising photography and using visual content as a way to connect, engage and leave a lasting impression on audiences. We crave images and we want information and fast, therefore every business should be utilising visuals in some shape or form in order to deliver their messages effectively.
Here are 6 reasons why photography and utilising images is the key to success:
Whether it’s a carefully curated social media pic or a beautifully shot product image, marketers have to do everything in their power to grab attention and keep it. Your overall aesthetic is what can bring in new audiences or customers, you need to find an edge to attract attention throughout your website and social media channels.
2. Brings your message across
The human brain is quick to process visuals compared to the written word. Information that can capture attention quickly will always succeed over other mediums. Photographs should align with your brand, your mission and your written content and be consistent across all mediums in order to ensure maximum effectiveness.
People automatically connect with visual elements and it’s an excellent way for marketers to capture the imagination of their target audience and inspire them to want to know more. Once connection is established, this can, more often than not, inspire action. Once you’ve connected with your followers or prospective customers through imagery, it will likely solicit favourable responses.
4. Can go viral
Going viral is one of the best ways to build brand credibility, customer loyalty and brand awareness. Photographs have the potential to go viral if an audience connects with it enough to share it with their wider social networks. If you can get people to engage with your image, there is a strong possibility that your brand is seen in front of more people than just your immediate following.
5. Brand credibility
Making good impressions on your followers and customers is the most vital step in building brand credibility. High quality photography, visuals and relatable content is an easy way to make an impression and show your customers/ followers who you are as a brand. Simple things like product photography and good social media images have the ability to signal to people that you are a brand with standards, and you’re a leader in your field.
6. More sales
The use of high quality product or service images are crucial to growing business sales. Photographs help customers, clients and prospective followers visualise your product or service in the context to them. If they are interested in what you bring to the table, they’ll likely make a purchase.
