Is it worth spending a bit more money on your website images to get that professional touch?
If you look at many of today’s websites, it’s the use of imagery that draws you in.
Many sites nowadays employ very little additional or elaborate design, it’s the images that provide a visual impact and ultimately are responsible for encouraging a potential customer to stay on your site and explore further.
Taking your own photos
There are many ways to obtain images for your products and services. Route one is to take photos yourself. Most people own a camera in one form or another, so taking your own pictures has become very affordable.
Many customers opt for providing there own images in order to save money, but also because they don’t recognize the importance of good imagery to help sell a business.
In some cases customers have the necessary skills and is therefore a cost effective solution, but in the majority of cases the images provided can lack the professionalism that can help to bring your site to life and grab the attention of your visitors.
The next viable option is to buy images from a stock image bank, Over the last ten years, online image banks have become extremely common with some services even providing some images for free,
Stock image banks can be very useful, but it goes without saying, that when it comes to using stock images you do generally get what you pay for. Higher quality and the use images exclusively comes at a price.
