Value of Images In Blog Posts

Your featured image is worth 1,000 words, so to speak. With how social networks work today, the featured image is the second headline.

We recommend never submitting an article without at least one image.

For bonus points:

  • Original image preferred
  • When no original images, here are the best sources of free quality photos:
  • Use graphs or infographics to capture attention and add educational merit
  • Embed a relevant video or two to include a variety of voices on your topic
  • Break up lengthy sections of text with media to make for easier reading
