When you look at popular websites or social media accounts, what’s one of the first things you notice? Their content, including the images, is usually exceptional and engaging.

Attention-grabbing graphics are important for your private practice digital marketing activity. 80% of marketers use visual content in their social media marketing. This makes sense as research suggests that people can remember 65% of information paired with an image, while only 10% can be remembered without pictures.

There are noticeable differences between graphics that have been made with effort and pictures that are just thrown together. While using relevant stock photos is better than not using any visual assets, you can spend just a little bit of time to create your own unique graphics. (And for free, too!)
