Brilliant lessons here from +Rebekah Radice 
 
How to Create Social Media Images That Grab Attention
While you might not be able to judge a book by its cover, it’s often the cover that draws you in. The same holds true for graphics.

A compelling graphic is the eye-candy cover to your amazing social media content.

Want to brand your business, draw people in to the conversation and create more engagement? Read my 8 quick tips to help you get the most out of your social media posts through the power of a persuasive image!

TIP 1 - Evoke Emotion

In order to sell your product or service, you must speak to a primal need.

- How to satisfy a basic necessity – food, clothing, shelter
- To solve a problem – what’s their concern, challenge or problem
- Better themselves – better body, life, bank account

TIP 2 - Customize Your Masterpiece

While your image might not be the Mona Lisa, it can be branded with your signature look and feel. Customize each image to inspire and delight your social media fans and followers. 

The four basic questions you must answer:

- What is it?
- How does it work?
- Who has it?
- How does it feel?

Read all tips here and pin it for later: http://rebekahradice.com/social-media-graphics
