A picture speaks a thousand words. In the world of digital marketing and social media, it also captures the attention of your target audience. Apparently, pictures receive more likes, shares and comments than a post that comprises text only.

While you are at it, make sure the photos or visuals that you use are of high quality and resolution. Using blurry images and generic photos will not be catchy enough. You can easily get copyright and royalty-free images with a simple Google Search.
