Are you using images in your social media marketing? If not, WHY?
As the saying goes, a picture says a thousand words. Marketers who use visual content get more customer engagement, more leads, and more followers, which result in higher earnings.
What makes visual content so important in your social media marketing plan:
- People naturally respond to images.
- The human brain processes images much faster than text.
- Images communicate ideas in a more immediate way.
- Images have the ability to tell a story.
- Stories resonate with people and can help create a strong bond between you and your followers.
- Images are absolutely essential for branding.
- Social media posts with visual content get 120% to 180% more engagement than text-only posts.
But, it takes so much time to create good social images…
Creating graphics IS time consuming, taking you away from your other business tasks. Once you have the idea you want to share, you need to search through stock photos that will help convey your idea, create the new graphic in the appropriate size for your platform, tweak the typography into a visually appealing style, and then schedule it to post. If you want to use the same image on a different platform you’ll want to optimize the size for it and that takes even more time!
But, implementing graphics into your social media plan can help grow your business dramatically.
Designing graphics may not be your cup of tea and that’s where I can help! See some of my creations below:
If you’re ready to get noticed on social media, I’ve created some brand new packages for customized social graphics to help grow your business:
How it works
Once you sign up I’ll send you an initial client information form to fill out and return. This will include the content you want displayed on your graphics.
I will search for appropriate images to convey the message of your text and send to you for approval.
Once approved, I will create your social shareable graphics with your branding or domain name and send you a Dropbox link to pick up your images.
Then you can share, share, share! 🙂
What Happy Customers Have to Say:
I needed some graphics made for Facebook Ads and knew Sam would do a great job, making them look great and comply with FB ad requirements. And she did of course! Now I have her on retainer so I have something fresh to use every month!
She’s reading my mind!
My tech VA Tanya had Samantha create some social media graphics for me, and I was honestly not expecting to be as blown away as I was! It’s so tricky to find someone who designs like they are reading your mind, without telling them explicitly what you are looking for. I decided to give Sam a try, without seeing a portfolio, as I trust my VA’s recommendations. WOW. I was totally impressed with the whole look and feel of the graphics – she created just what I was looking for. From the photos she chose, to the colors, to the fonts – Sam does beautiful work and I highly recommend her! I know others have been loving the graphics I’ve been sharing too.
I love these!!! You picked perfect images – right in line with my tastes and values. Thank you!!!
Unique eye for design
It’s always a pleasure working with you, Sam. I love your unique eye for design, but also really appreciate the way you interpret my wild and crazy ideas and put them into reality without hesitation. Thank you so much!
Amazing social media graphics
Samantha has become my go-to gal whenever I need any type of graphics created for myself or for one of my clients. She has done amazing social media graphics, logos and product ecovers for me. I love that I can give her a rough idea of what I’m looking for and she will totally run with it and create something beautiful every time. As an added bonus, she is always quick to respond and so easy to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a graphic designer!
