The masters of the craft of blogging recommend that you shouldn’t publish any blog post without
adding a good photograph in it because that looks more attractive. Besides that will also help you
in getting a large number of shares. Darren Rowse once did the following experiment with his
Facebook users. He shared the link of one of his blog posts on his Facebook page. As you may know,
Facebook automatically pulls a picture from the page of the link and puts it into that share which
appears next to the link in the newsfeed of the people. But this picture is small in size. It is roughly
about the size of an icon. So Darren shared the link and then after several hours he shared the same
link but this time he manually inserted a bigger size of the same picture. The result? The latter post
received many more likes and shares than the former.
This is just one example that demonstrates the power of pictures. If you are a blogger, a website
owner, an author or something like that then you need quality images with which to supplement
your work. There are many photographic agencies on the web out there. We recommend that you
go for Depositphotos.
