Seriously, what are are we doing with text when more than 50% of our brain processes visuals?
People remember 80% of what they see. We follow directions 323% better with illustrations and text than just without illustrations.
These are all the reasons why images and graphics used for social updates make more impact than those without. It’s the reason why your ads perform better with images or videos than without.
But then, I know what you are thinking:
Oh, thanks for the heads up Ash. You must realize that we have no budget for graphic designers and we can’t really take time out for this. We have a business to run, you see?
Yes, I see.
Previously, I’ve written about various ways you could create Facebook ads without breaking the bank for maximum impact for your Facebook ad campaigns.
Good for videos. But wait, what do we do with the regular stuff? Ads, graphics, Infographics, web banners, social banners, Youtube thumbnails, and social updates?
