A Picture Tells A Thousand Words – 10 Places to Find FREE Images

We are sure you have heard the cliche, “a picture tells a thousand words”, but there is real value in using images to promote your content. Images help your readers learn, grab their attention, explain concepts and inspire.

It has been found that only 20% of what people read sticks. However, if you put that information into an image format, suddenly the percentage of information takes a huge leap to 80%. Content on social media accompanied by an image is more likely to receive engagement.
