When you’re choosing a marketing photograph, there are 3 things you should look for:
- The Marketing photograph should be aspirational. You know, something positive and inspiring, so it has an “I want that” factor.
- Get a photograph with a person if you can. People are far more drawn to photographs of people than of objects.
- Pay very careful attention to where the person in the photograph is looking. Readers will follow the model’s gaze.
- Add a strong headline into the copy space.
Those 4 steps will make your marketing message more prominent and get more attention.
