I wish I could monetize, but my blog is small!
This is a statement that I've hear many people make, and little do they know how completely mistaken they are! I was one of those people as well, thinking that only big blogs with hundreds of thousands visits a month could earn an honest income online . . .
There is no secret to the fact that having beautiful pictures on your blog posts is the key to social media engagement. Adding beautiful images to your posts is a must if you want to have successful results, and have your followers and visitors sharing your post all over their social media.
Everybody is drawn to beautiful images because they entice all senses, in addition to summarizing the whole concept of your post in one simple glance. To me, personally, it goes like this: "if I like what I see, I'll read it".
Surveys show that posts with images get shared a whooping 87% more that posts with no images at all, so indeed it is major component of a successful post. Crazy enough, many people share posts, just because they fall in love with the image, even if they did not completely read it.
