Tips to keep in mind when choosing social media images: 


  • Be mindful of the devices you are using when adjusting images. Although it may not harm your image appearance at all, it is good practice to be aware in case images do not come out clear. Images from desktop to smartphone may differ.


  • Have a hard time creating your own photos? Find free images from trusted sites online. Some adjusting may be required.


  • Keep your images the same for profile photos (and profile covers). This will help your clients find you. Depending on your company, avoid posting the same content to your Facebook and Instagram accounts. You can have one platform share the behind the scenes of your organization and another platform on your business’s products.


  • Not sure how to adjust your images? We are here for you! Speak with a trusted source who will direct you on how to make those changes, stress-free!
