I know that you constantly hear about how visuals increase the engagement you have with your audience. The problem then becomes what kind of images and where to find them. There are tons of sites that offer stock images of varying quality. They can vary in price and either be copyright free or not. You have to take all that into consideration when you choose one. There’s nothing worse than choosing a tired old clip art image to go with your shiny new post.
Here are a host of sites that offer images for you to consider. Remember that you will be judged by the image you choose. People look at images first and read the caption (if there is one). Be mindful of that when you’re picking one.
