Content Marketing with graphics, pictures and images is easy if you are in a business that is visual. If you are a wedding planner, food blogger or in the fashion industry it's fairly simple to find or take great pictures to use on facebook, your blog or pinterest. But what if your business isn't visual? If your budget allows, there are great graphic designers that can really improve your ability to use these platforms. If it doesn't, what can you do?
Every blog post should have a graphic or picture. Sometimes finding great images can take more time than writing the post itself and then you need to worry about the copyrights too! This is certainly true for us. We can spend hours looking on flickr and other sites for appropriate images for our blog, and then we need to post on pinterest - how do we constantly find enough great visual content to keep up?
At this Tweet-up Tom Beach will be demonstrating a few free web tools that can make some pretty compelling images. We'll show how to make word clouds, put quotes on pictures and create infographics. All these tools are pretty easy to use, and best of all, they are all free. No, they won't replace a good graphic designer or photographer, but they may help you grow your business enough so you can hire one! If you are not taking advantage of all these great content marketing platforms like pinterest, this tweet-up should give you the visual content to start using them.
