Creating and Sharing Your Own Images


No doubt, images are popular on social media sites. In fact, two of the most popular sites, Instagram and Pinterest, are dedicated to image sharing. Sharing images on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest pages can increase engagement with your followers. In addition, images are more likely to be shared. While the Internet is filled with images that you could conceivably share, creating and sharing your own images can set your business apart.

Advantages of Using Images 

Sharing interesting, engaging content on social media sites is a must. Sharing images can do the trick. When people see an image that makes the smile or feel inspired, they tend to click the like or share button. How often your followers interact with your content often affects whether or not they will be shown your future content, especially with Facebook.

When you share your images on your website and favorite social media sites, you may also get an unexpected boost from Google. Your images could appear in Google’s image search results.

Creating Your Own Images

If you’re a talented photographer or graphic artist, they you have an edge. If not, don’t despair. For example, you could use a stock photography site or the Creative Commons section of Flickr to source images. From there, use an image editor such as Photoshop or Pixelmator to add text such as an inspirational quote.

Creating and sharing your own images is a fantastic way to engage your followers and potentially extend your reach. Make sure to respect copyrights. After creating a beautiful, share worthy image, add branding, keywords, and hashtags and then share it with the world!
