Graphics in your social marketing posts
If you want to promote your business online, you MUST use graphics. You must hone your social marketing skills. And you must use graphics in EACH of your social marketing posts.
Look at three of the social media to which I post regularly: Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. Notice that virtually every post has an interesting graphic.
Sources of graphics
You can be sued thousands of dollars. Don’t download graphics from a website and use them without permission.
Often I will buy a $3 photo from Adobe Stock. I go to their website. (It has over 30 million catalogued photos.) I will search for descriptive terms.
For instance, the title of this post is Social Marketing and Graphics. I wanted a good picture that I could use near the top of the post and within each social media. So, I entered this into the search box: social marketing graphics.
Using that method, I purchased the “Tweet Like Photo” graphic you see in the first paragraph of this post.
That graphic will be in my Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. posts. Each of those posts will link to this blog post.

Pinterest and social marketing
Pinterest posts can be much more valuable than Facebook or Twitter posts. Months after a Pinterest picture is published, it can still be sending people to a website. As a matter of fact, it can gain MORE visibility over time. If you are serious about social media marketing, you must use Pinterest.
