Where To Find The Best Stock Images | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it
Buying and searching for stock images can be a tedious and expensive task, especially if you stick to the standard sites. But there are other sites out there, and many of them are better than the status quo. Here are eight sites with great stock photos. 8. Unsplash Unsplash is a great source for free high-resolution photos that are updated often. It’s a mixture of urban and rural landscapes, as well as close up shots of objects and growing things. You can find almost anything here. “Made With Unsplash” is a page where users can post projects where they’ve utilized stock images from the website, so visitors can see the photography in action. They update every 10 days with 10 new images so the selection keeps growing.

Bacon Punctuation: A Sentence about Bacon for Every Use of Punctuation - Infographic

Bacon Punctuation: A Sentence about Bacon for Every Use of Punctuation - Infographic | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it
There are fifteen punctuation marks in the English language, each of which serves a variety of purposes. A couple months ago, I charted each of the fifteen punctuation marks in order of how much each punctuation mark does. As insightful as that may (or may not) have been, that chart didn't provide an example for all the ways to use punctuation marks. So my solution? I wrote a sentence for every single way to use each of the punctuation marks. And what better thing to write about in each sentence than America's favorite food?

5 Elements of a Great Advertisement — Ad Savvy

5 Elements of a Great Advertisement — Ad Savvy | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it
icoexist2's insight:

There are many strategies for creating desire in the customer. An ad usually has about 10-30 seconds to accomplish the goal. During that time, here are 5 things that all good ads have in common:

1. Attention Grabbing
Catchy music, a beautiful woman, repetition, loud sounds, visual humor. These all appeal to basic sensory perceptions and if done right, they work simply because we’re human.

2. Trust Development
Is the company offering the product trustworthy? Or are they just a bunch of greasy car salesmen trying to sell a product? An ad should establish the company offering the product as deserving of trust. This can often be accomplished simply by making a well produced ad with likable characters.

3. Positive Associations
