The power of images is well-known. They say a photo is worth 1000 words. There’s a good reason for that. A photograph can capture our attention or outline a product or idea much more quickly or efficiently than words alone. Images sell. Images grab our attention and our emotions. They have the power to make us laugh or cry or persuade us to act.
Social Media posts with images can get anywhere from 50% more engagement to 200% more engagement than the same post with text only, according to multiple studies.
And websites that include relevant photos or videos can get almost twice as many views as websites without. Think about your own experience—aren’t you more likely to pay attention when a compelling photograph grabs your attention?
Are you putting that power to work in your business?
I can help you leverage the power of images in your business.
Whether you are using photographs, graphics or videos, I can help you build your business with wise image use. From appropriate placement and usage of images in your website, to design, creation and planning of social media images, my 30+ years of experience as a photographer, graphic designer and marketer will shorten your road to imaging success.
Here at Marie Leslie Media, you’ll find resources for improving your photography and design skills, hiring photographers, videographers and graphic designers, tips and information for optimizing the use of images of your website and social media sharing, among other topics.
I am also available for custom image creation, as well as commercial photography services to include event & editorial photography, food and product photography.
In addition, I am happy to come and speak to your group or organization about photography and how to be a better photographer, as well as offering workshops on specific photographic topics, ranging from photographing your children or how to start your own photography business and/or website, to using images to build your business presence.
To get started with any of our imaging services, email me here (marie at marieleslie dot com).
And while I frequently write and consult on questions about copyright and appropriate image usage, it is important that you know I am not an attorney and I do not play one on the internet. I speak only from my research and experience and will always direct you to seek appropriate legal counsel should you have any questions or concerns about the legality of specific image use.
