Top 5 Free Image Websites

Did you know that social media posts that include images have 650% higher engagement than text-only posts? And, the average reader only remember 20% of the text they consume without visuals!

  1. In terms of interaction the best posts are:
    1. Questions, then
    2. Image Posts
    3. Focus on asking questions, and make sure you share your Instagram on facebook – but at the right time. (shares from Instagram do 23% better than an image uploaded directly to facebook)
  2. Posts on Sunday do better than any other day
  3. Optimal facebook post length is 0-50 characters. So if you are linking to a blog post – Keep it short and sweet.
  4. Hashtags on facebook are terrible and no one likes them.
  5. Facebook does not like it when you post a Youtube clip to Facebook and they will decrease your exposure when you do this.  Ensure you upload separately to each social platform.
