Whoever said that looks don’t matter has never hopped on the internet. Social media may be powered by content, but it makes its mark through images and video.
In order to make sure that your social media and blogging efforts are as effective as you’d like, you need to catch a visitor’s eye as well as his or her mind.
A statistic for you: visuals are processed an estimated 60,000 times faster in the brain than text.
If you want to grab the casual internet visitor before he or she clicks away, you’re likely going to do it through visuals.
Here are a few sites that I think are great:
