Tips for Choosing the Best Images for Your Page
Photos posted by FPTraffic members are viewed about 50,000,000 times a day on Facebook! With that kind of reach, you want to choose the right images that will also encourage engagement among your audience. Before selecting every image in the Pinterest and Instagram feeds, be sure to consider the following tips:
- Choose images that are relevant and related to your brand.
- Add emojis and clever descriptions to your image posts.
- Post different types of images, including gifs, memes, infographics and photos to engage your audience.
- Experiment with your images, and test your results to determine which types of images your audience resonates most with.
- Encourage engagement with “Caption this” photos, prompting users to comment with their own descriptions.
