Ever wondered what makes successful blogs so amazing? The key is the first impression. Your readers will be captured by bright stunning images, and clear photos of high quality will let your audience know that your content is valuable for them. If your blog posts are pretty lengthy (which is definitely good for your SEO), you probably want to break your text with images so that your readers don’t lose interest. That’s where you can use the help of styled stock photos. Plus, it will make your blog post more shareable.
Blog or Website Header
Header is a face of your website, blog or even Etsy shop. How can you show a visitor that you are true professional? I am sure beautiful branded photos in the header can do the job. Many styled stock photos have a lot of white space so that you can add your logo, name, and tagline on it. You can use Canva for this (it’s free and very easy). You can go further and customize an image by cropping and rotating it, adding social media icons and so much more.
If you are offering downloads as content upgrades to your audience, using stock images can make it more attractive. You can add styled photos when creating worksheets and PDFs. Overlaying text on a photo is a perfect way to create a visually appealing cover.
