Visuals on social media have a way to hook you. When you do it for your business, there’s a sense of “cool, sexy, and purposeful” about it. The good things aside, content with images gets 94% more views than content without relevant images. Plus, visual content is 40X more likely to get love and shares on social media than any other type of content, according to Design Dingos.
Take Buffer, for example, the tweets that Buffer published with images got 150% more retweets than tweets without images.
Coincidentally, Buffer has a cool app called Pablo that you should know about.
Social Media Visuals, on the fly
If you post updates on social networks like I do – which is like one update almost every hour, for 24 hours – you’d need a quick, fast, and efficient way to create visuals. For a few planned visuals, you can use tools like Canva or Snappa. For really quick visuals through – such as quotes, stats, and others — Pablo really gets the job done.
Type up text, pick a background image, and you are done.
Quotes? No work needed
If you are the types who’d like to throw in a quote or two in your daily update schedule, Pablo has quotes ready and waiting for you inside. Pick a quote, choose an image if you like, and you are good to go.
There are often times when you don’t want to flood your social channels with updates about your business, you, or any promotions. In all those cases, use quotes and It takes exactly 4-5 seconds to do that.
Images are on tap
Pablo partnered with Pixabay and that gives you a whopping 600,000 photos to use, right from within Pablo. The entire Pixabay library is now at your finger tips, and using these images to create your social media visuals was never easier than this.
With the newly released Alignment tools within Pablo, you can now align text and other assets vertically or horizontally.
Pablo Is Awesome for Outreach
You have no business on social media if you don’t do the following:
While you’ll do all the three above, Pablo gives you a great way to do outreach with some ready-made templates.
