Stock photos are a fundamental part of any web and graphic design. There are loads of stock photos services that offer high quality photos, however, the price is not always reasonable. The solution in this case is finding free stock photos something that isn’t always easy. In order to make this process easier, the author has compiled a list over the years with sites that offer free stock photos.

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Most of us are familiar with sharing photos on social networks. It started on Facebook and has exploded with the arrival of Instagram. This infographic aims to explore the impact of a picture-based social network model.

Studies show photo posts on Facebook are the most engaging. In traditional media, the highest percentage of people who look at a newspaper look at the pictures, while a lower percentage actually read the articles. The same holds true for Facebook.
To illustrate the impact of sharing photos on social networks even further, consider that 10% of the pictures ever taken in the world's history were taken in the past year...

6 Reasons to Create Great Visual Content Marketing in 2014

Big Data has been a theme for 2013, and it poses the threatening question of how one can possibly interpret all the data that is available to take in.

 

As consumers of data, we’re constantly deciding whether to “bookmark” a particularly interesting file, or make an entry in Evernote to come back to read it later. There is so much data being generated every single minute on the Internet that it becomes increasingly time-consuming to make decisions such as: Should I read it now? Should I make a note of it in my Moleskin notepad? Should I email the link to myself?

 

In short, we spend more time sorting through, curating and organizing data that already exists. In doing so, we create more data about data!

If we are smack in the middle of a digital marketing revolution one of the most important wheels keeping that revolution turning faster and faster is VISUAL marketing. Friends @Scoopit call this "lean content", content that conveys complexity quickly, simply with visualization.

Mobile is another wheel turning the marketing revolution faster and faster AND being accelerated by little screens with their swiping, snipping and spinning of "mobile content".

What is "mobile content"? Some say there is no such thing ad "mobile content". I think there is an opportunity to create "mobile first" websites where content flows evenly, smoothly and in many directions at once.

Content is why the "mobile revolution" is about more than phones. Once we re-imagine content that creates engagement across all platforms (social and owned) we see the need for arresting visuals, great headlines and content snippets.

We are smack in the middle of a revolution. Visual marketing is a monster flywheel driving this revolution faster and faster, better and better. Find ways to make your content leaner and more visual in 2014 to stay up with the game.

Like all new technology, social media changes fast.

Just trying to keep your head around all of the different platforms, how to approach them and, of course, how to design for them can be a full time job.

Social media has proven itself as a crucial component of a brand’s marketing mix, but with the many different platforms, it can be very difficult to put forth a consistent brand image online.


The [Ridiculously Exhausitive] Social Media Design Blueprint features all of the major design dimensions for all of the major platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIN, YouTube, Pinterest and the most recent entry, Instagram.

If you want to learn how to use images effectively inside your website or blog here is a truly excellent guide by Chistian Vasile on 1WD.


In the guide you will find rational and fact-supported advice on how to choose, place and test image use inside web-based content as well as lots of extremely relevant examples of effective image use online.


From the original article: "...if you manage to find the right pictures and insert them in the right places, they can do wonders for you, as they did for some others."


Well written. Informative. Resourceful. 8/10

Confessions of A Director of Ecommerce
I've spent the last few years trying to share as many "secrets" as I learned as a Director of Ecommerce. I don't run an ecommerce website anymore so can afford to be generous (lol). 

One of my pet peeves was directing the eye sight line of people in our images. I wanted the eyes pointed at something that mattered. People follow the eye line of those they are looking at. We had three tactics:

1. Gaze straight at visitor - promotes engagement.

2. Gaze directly at a Call To Action - promotes clicks.

3. Gaze at other people in same picture - promotes connection.

 

 We used #1 for pages with broad reach such as our homepage and category top-level pages. 

We used #2 in 4Q on the home page and bending the sight lines of any people in images on a product page works well (our product pages tended to make the PRODUCTS the heroes so few people). 

We used #3 when connection was one of the benefits of a product. If you sell wine, travel or family cars you may want to have pictures of people looking at each other. I would never ONLY have this picture on a webpage since it can make the viewer feel left out. 

The natural companion to the "connection" picture is a picture of a single person gazing out at the viewer. This says, "Yes, we see you, value your visit and want to be friends". 


Websites communicate SO MUCH in covert ways. Balancing what you say with one image such as the people looking at each other with another image to promote engagement is the game you play, the inside baseball "secrets" that separate teams capable of making millions in profits online from those who won't and wonder why :).M
