I have to admit – I’m one of those workers who you’ll find tucking into a cheese and pickle sandwich at my desk at lunchtime. It’s a chance to have five minutes to myself and a cheeky peek at BuzzFeed before I crack on with my work. Not a great habit I know.
Visuals are proven to improve the results of social media posts.
However if you repeatedly reuse the same promotional visuals across all of your online outlets, you will bore your audience, and perhaps even lose some of your long-term followers if they deem your constant self-promoting updates to be uninteresting and worthless.
A study carried out by ROI research found that people are 44% more likely to engage with a brand if an image is involved. On Facebook, a post that includes an album or picture receives 120% to 180% more engagement from fans than a text-based post. According to 3M Corp, our brains process visual content 60,000 times faster than text. Suffice to say, images are often the perfect way to bring a piece of content to life, in order to attract the highest levels of engagement.

Investing in a good quality headset is another ‘must’, if virtual meetings are a regular thing for you.
