How to use business images creatively

Using business images for branding Designing a business logo? Aim for an image that potential customers or clients can easily connect to the name or purpose of your business. This will make it easier for your business to stick in their minds. Shutterstock has tree icons that instill a sense of natural growth, sun logos that say the sun never sets on your business, bird symbols that emblemize power and flight, and so much more. When it comes to selecting images for your business website, it is key to keep the purpose of your business in mind. You want your images to make a powerful and positive first impression on potential customers or clients. Focused on small business owners? Feature authentic photos of small business owners standing with pride before their café or shop on your website. Digital finance more your thing? Include engaging stock market graphs and sales data analysis to let clients know what your business is all about. Using business-focused image for marketing and communication In order to motivate potential customers to sign up for your site or buy your book, be sure to share visuals that include a strong call to action. To do this, you will need to keep a few graphic design principles in mind. Create an aesthetically pleasing image by using colors that appropriately contrast one another. Scale the various visual elements according to importance. Put the most important information at the top of the image in large letters, then perhaps include a succinct description of that important information. Follow up with an eye-catching visual representation of the goods or services you are offering and be sure to include an easy-to-spot link that will allow customers to pay for said goods or services. Shutterstock has a number of business templates that make it easy for you to tailor exactly such a visual to your business. Using business images for social media Brainstorm with your team and come up with a meme or branded quote that will convey the heart of your business to a social media audience. Such memes and quotes do especially well on social media when it comes to shares. Use a colorful Shutterstock business template and insert your personalized big, bold text to catch the eye of Instagrammers as they scroll through their personal feeds. These messages are an easy way to connect with your potential customer base. They encourage audience engagement and allow for an emotional connection to be built between your brand and potential customers. You can also try posting some fun business visuals that will take your viewers by surprise. A photo of men in business suits playing with hula hoops to get the creative ideas flowing, or a shot of a businessman on a pedal car with a thrilled smile on his face, can make social media users want to stop scrolling and click on your image to learn more.
