Looking for better images for your blogs or social media?

Posts that include images produce 650 percent higher engagement than text-only posts. So, where do you get your images from for your social media platforms?

We found a solution for those of you who have limited access to graphics or a limited budget. Check out a site Creative Commons. Their model is to have work freely available for legal use, sharing, repurposing, and remixing.

Creative Commons allows you to legally use “some rights reserved” music, movies, images, and other content — all for free.

You have three options for getting images for your marketing content:

  1. Spend money on a stock photography site
  2. Take them yourself
  3. Or steal them on the internet. (Please don’t do this)

Oh wait, you have a 4th option!

It’s CreativeCommons! They let you search for photos that are free and allowed to be used commercially, provided you give credit to the artist. Here is an example of an image:

Have fun exploring & sharing! https://creativecommons.org/

Visuals are effective because they help people process, understand, and retain more information more quickly.
