They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and, it turns out that, a thousand words are worth considerably more if you add some pictures! Now, you’re probably thinking, “What does this have to do with my budget?”
If you’re a financial blogger, the answer is “Everything!”
(You are a financial blogger, right? Did you even read my headline?) If you’re not, stick around. Maybe you’ll be inspired to start a new side hustle.
This could be YOU (but actually, it’s Erin, our Education Manager).
So, back to that budget of yours. As a financial blogger, the better your content, the more dollars you bring in. Since the name of the blogging income game is engagement—measured in shares, click-throughs and bounce rates (oh my!)—how can you be more competitive? Hmm. Well, according to these fancy statistics compiled by HubSpot, images can help you boost all of the above! Check it out:
- Visual content is 40 times more likely to get shared on social media than other types of content. (Buffer, 2014)
- Articles with an image once every 75 to 100 words got double the number of social shares than articles with fewer images. (Buzzsumo, 2015)
- Researchers found that colored visuals increase people’s willingness to read a piece of content by 80 percent. (Xerox, 2014)
Looks like those images are ALREADY paying off for this financial blogger!
