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.
DON'T Throw Away Your Expired Store Coupons . . . YET!
It all really started by pure accident one day at Dick's Sporting Goods many years ago. I was buying soccer items for our kids, and I was so happy about the very good coupons I had with me! I was about to get the deal of the year, because they accept a combination of qualifying coupons on the same purchase!
When the cashier asked me if I had any coupons (a question that you rarely get from anyone at any store, ever) I happily said, yes I do! To my dismay, when I pulled the coupons out, I just noticed that they were expired by exactly one day! I almost cried, because it is quite pricey to buy regular-priced at their store. Sadly, I said: I thought I did , but they expired yesterday . . .
That's when he said: "Oh, don't worry, we can still take them" . . . the most beautiful words I have ever heard from a cashier!
And, from that day on . . .
