Hear a piece of information, and three days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you will remember 65%.
One of the biggest questions we are asked is:
“Where do I find good
stock images for presentations?”
Currently the trend of images is for real authentic photos that represent real people in real scenarios that evoke your senses and emotions through a connection, something they can relate with.
So, avoid fake studio shots of handshakes and photo-shopped faces with immaculate teeth.
Think ‘Instagram or Snapchat effect’. Real people doing real things – images that are emotionally engaging – trusted and human.
