6 Image Types for Engaging Your Customer

Money catches my attention…

I’m always looking for good photos that don’t cost much because perhaps you’ve noticed — this site doesn’t have any ads. Which means NO BUCKS. So if I crack for a photo, I’d sure like to know it’s going to catch your attention. And journalist Benjamin Kabin, while searching for the right images for Instagrams, found Curalate.

Curalate, a Philadelphia-based visual analytics and marketing firm, says it created algorithms to determine how more than 30 factors — including color, lightness and saturation — can effect an Instagram post’s performance. For its insight, the company says it analyzed more than 8 million images from the mobile photo-sharing platform.

“By making a few small tweaks, brands looking to connect with consumers on visual sites like Instagram can see their engagement skyrocket, resulting in increased customer loyalty and more importantly, sales,” says a Curalate executive.

Here are some basic tips, not just for Instagram but for bloggers and websites as well — see if you agree:

Keep it cool:
Photos dominated by blues and other cool colors tend to garner more likes while photos with warmer oranges and reds do worse.

Master monochrome:
The more dominant a single color is on an image, the more likes it could get. Pictures dominated by a single hue receive 40 percent more likes than those that don’t.

With color, less is more: 
It can be tempting to ratchet up the vibrancy, flooding your image with color to make it stand out. But in today’s overstimulated world, bright and vibrant colors can get lost. The proof is in the data: Curalate says less saturated images receive 18 percent more likes than their mover vibrant counterparts.

    What you said made a bunch of sense. However, think on this, what if you added a little content?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run
    your blog, however what if you added a headline to possibly grab a person’s attention?
    I mean 6 Types of Images That Grab Attention – Infographic – AdHelper is kinda vanilla.

    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create
    news headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related
    video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what
    you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.
