Your Guide To Creating Eye-Catching Blog Post Graphics
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
Do you know how fast people make judgments about your business? We’re talking milliseconds.
That’s why it’s crucial to make a good first impression with your audience. One of the best ways to do so is by creating beautiful, strategic, and eye-catching graphics.
As a content writer for pet businesses, I’m big on the power of blogging. Whether you have yet to get started on your blog posts or you’re blogging and have yet to see the results, it’s time to create branded visuals that not only create eye-catching first impressions but also have the ability to convert (i.e. making viewers click on the post, save it to their Pinterest's, or better yet, share it with their friends).
The pet industry is, of course, very saturated. When it comes to graphics, it doesn’t matter whether your blog post is great or not. Someone with a (for lack of a better word) crappy blog post can get 10 times more traffic than yours simply because their graphic was better. That’s how essential creating powerful graphics can be!
So, how in the world do you create branded blog post graphics that stand out from the millions of other posts out there?
We’re here to help you get you started!
I always recommend getting started by creating 2-3 graphic templates. Why? It helps your brand become more recognizable in the future as your audience revisits your website or scrolls through Pinterest. If they see another one of your posts, they’ll be more likely to stop after they’ve already clicked on another one, or at least begin to recognize okay this business is an authority figure on X topic.
P.S. Obviously, in order to create blog post graphics, you need blogs. If you're struggling with coming up with strategic blog post topic ideas, I gotchu. Get access to my list of blog post ideas for pet businesses here.
