For instance, if you’re publishing a case study on one of your customer success stories, readers will become more engaged with that story if they can put a face to the name. If that customer’s business involves the kind of product or service that’s visually interesting, include some pictures of it.

If you’re promoting a new financial package, try to come up with ways to present it so your customers can ‘see’ how it will work, rather than you just telling them. Sometimes this involves creating your own images or animations, and they’ll help get the message across faster.

Infographics rely on good visual presentation, and the images you use don’t always have to be of the stick figure type – you can use real photos in infographics as well.
