A-Z of using images effectively. Part 8: VWX
V – Volume
There are no rules about how many images to use on websites, blogs and in social media, but at least 2 would be a good start I think. No-one wants to look at a screen full of text, so breaking this up with images, graphics and video will really help keep people interested.
There are so many widgets available to be used with blogs and on social media sites it’s sometimes difficult to know which to use. As a general rule of thumb, put yourself in your readers shoes – what would they like or find useful? To be able to share an image at the click of a button? Be updated every with you post an image? Tag themselves? All increase engagement and enhance user experience.
X – eXperience (sorry!)
If you can improve your user/viewer/reader’s eXperience when they ready your blog, visit your website or pick up your brochures they’re more likely to remember you in a positive way. Everything we’ve discussed in this series will help you with that.
