They say, “a picture is worth a thousand words” and that can’t really be disputed. BUT, could bad pictures cost you a thousand customers? Read that again. The value of high-quality images is often underestimated by small business owners. Think about it, large companies with big marketing departments don’t send their staff out snapping pictures with their cell phones. No, they want their product or service displayed to their target market with the highest quality images possible. It truly amazes me to see a business spend tens of thousands of dollars on a very nice website and then fill said website with pictures that are grainy, out of frame and obviously captured with someones cellular phone?
I get it, sometimes you’re in the moment and the fancy camera on your new iPhone 11 will have to do (that camera on the pro version is hands down, the best cell phone camera ever!), yet I challenge anyone to provide an example of a successful company relying on cell phone images alone.
Most people I have ever encountered when securing images for either a website or marketing piece, have the quintessential response when asked about images, “Just find it on Google”. It’s times like these when I truly appreciate copyright laws, and loathe having to explain.
With so many different options available, securing professional, rightful images is as easy as ‘Google-ing’ stock images and purchasing large, high-quality photographs OR video that will look great for any site or promotional project a company may have and, they are able to use it as many times as they choose to.
We are considering adding a page to our website offering affordable stock images and video that can be conveniently downloaded in a range of sizes. There are also a number of sites offering stock photography and stock videography, some are much more expensive than others. In the rare instance we’re unable to produce our own images or video, we like to use Adobe Stock or Shutterstock. Although the latter is on the more expensive side.
