Visual Storytelling is the practice of using visual assets (whether images or video) to tell a story that moves and inspires viewers. Too often, we see small businesses and startups overlook the need to promote themselves visually. Sometimes, a small effort has been made to upload images or videos to a website, however, the quality of that media and its subsequent placement on a page can be to the determent of your website.
Visual Storytelling breaks down creative concepts and media opportunities to create a website that informs its users without having to rely so heavily on written content. The use of graphics, photography and video has seen a rapid growth in website development. Allowing a user to consume your content through a medium other than written content benefits your business in many ways. It can show off your personality, tone of voice, creative style, modern edge, professionalism and above all – it leaves your audience with a lasting impression.
If you offer a landscaping service, chances are you want to showcase the work you’ve done through professional photography or videography. This type of media builds trust for a potential customer, which is more likely to generate a business lead.
