A picture paints a thousand words and this is why images are used so heavily within marketing and media. With the additional benefit of viral sharing through social media channels such as Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter, images are an ideal way of promoting your business and raising brand awareness.

One major point to remember when planning your media use is that the copyright to any image, whether photograph, illustration or other media, belongs to the original creator unless they have assigned to another party. If you are the assigned party then great, but otherwise you will need to get the permission of the creator to use images on your website and other media channels. Alternatively look at low cost stock photography (try iStockphoto) or custom images and graphics. Get in contact to find out more >>.
