When crafting content, you’d be wise not to skimp on visuals.
Pairing images with text increases the potential that readers will remember—and engage with—your content. Since visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than images, they offer prime opportunities for capturing the attention of distracted audiences.
- Including images can improve recall by up to 65 percent.
- On average, articles that include visuals receive 94 percent more views than those that don’t.
- When an image is included in a Facebook post, it receives 352 percent more engagement than a link alone.
