Five stats to prove the value of visual content in social media


By nature, people are visual and we’re attracted to images. 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text. (Sources: 3M Corporation and Zabisco)

Images are powerful triggers of emotion in people. They can make users feel warm and happy, or intelligent and sophisticated in the blink of an eye. That emotion is then associated with your brand. By adding visual content, in all your social media posts will help your business stand out from the rest. This also gives your potential customers an instant and lasting impression of your brand, while drawing them into the bigger conversation. When you use visual content effectively it will capture and engage your audience.
