Hey Everyone! So, have you been admiring all those other blogs and websites that seem to have all of the beautiful photos? You've been seeing pretty Pinterest pins and Facebook ads, and you've been wondering where those gorgeous photos of styled desktops and flatlay designs are coming from? More importantly, are you wondering how these pretty images, known as styled stock photography, can help your business?
Here are a few good reasons to start using styled stock photos for your business:
1. They make you look professional.
Let's face it. In most cases, professionally created styled stock photography is just plain better than what most people can create themselves. Yes, given the time and equipment, you probably could create something nice. But where your brand is concerned, I say leave it to the pros.
Which leads us to #2 below.
2. They free up your time.
You are a busy entrepreneur. You don't really have the time to shop for props and equipment, set up a photo shoot, edit the images, etc. Instead, you can spend a few minutes selecting a professionally styled stock photo, head over to Canva, place your text or product image on it, and have it up on your blog in no time flat.
Instead of focusing on creating photos, spend your time focusing on serving clients, creating awesome content, and making money!
3. You can use them for more than just blogs.
There are soooo many great uses for beautiful styled stock photos! Here are just a few:
- ebook covers
- physical products (books, business cards, brochures)
- Facebook posts (posts with images are more engaging)
- Pinterest pins
- Facebook cover images
- Facebook ads
- Twitter cover images
- YouTube channel art
- Custom buttons for your website
- Opt-in pages
- Landing pages
- Thank you pages
- And many more!
See what I mean? You can use styled stock photos for every aspect of your brand and business.
4. One image can be used several ways.
Did you know there are multiple uses for just one styled stock image? Depending on how you crop it, you can create several different images from just one photo. More bang for your buck!
5. Use them for your products!
If you are creating courses and ebooks (which I hope you are!), then styled stock photos are your best friend. Use them for your presentation slides, your ebooks, your videos...anything you are creating!
So, as you can see, styled stock photography can be a great help for you and your business. Are you just getting started and need some free styled stock photos? Click on the link below for my free set of 7 images.
