Instagram lets us share images with the world whether it is what’s for lunch or where we have travelled, we post and hashtag the hell out of it. And why? Because the power of good imagery is boundless, a shot of your Sunday roast lamb dinner with all the trimmings matched with the perfect filter not only shows off your culinary skills but empowers your very masculinity, hunter-gatherer style, ‘here’s what I’m providing and doesn’t it look tasty?’
MEMEs trend throughout the internet because with the perfect image and a few measly words, it captures the very essence of ‘what I was thinking but just didn’t say’.
In a world where our coffee comes so fast that our name isn’t even spelt correctly and our words are heard so widely that we only get 160 characters to express ourselves, the old synonym couldn’t be more relevant, more necessary and more lucrative. Photography, imagery is now a fundamental tool for today’s marketers. Get it wrong and the message is missed by millions. Get it right and it can capture the very essence of your business, your product, your career.
We now have the best tools for successful marketing at our fingertips. Mobile cameras allow us to snap, tag and post within seconds so we no longer have the excuse to miss out. Professional photography is ever accessible and affordable paired with the best PR and marketing plan and it’ll be the best money you’ve spent.
Sell yourself in a thousand words with the perfect image.
