When I started out as a blogger in 2011, I LOVED creating graphics for my blog posts. In all honesty, I probably spent more time on the graphics than on the actual content.
I would never describe myself as an “artist” but I would describe myself as a “creative”. I love anything related to music. I love to sing (did NOT say I was good at it), and belt out all the 80’s rock songs in the car while my teenagers are plugging their ears. ;)
I thoroughly enjoy decorating when we move to a new home. I could walk through Hobby Lobby or TJ Maxx or any other store for that matter, and window shop all of the home decor. Usually, I’m walking through the aisles placing this particular piece of wall art with these candles, or imagining how that set of 3 uniquely painted canvas art pieces would look over my dining room table.
Needless to say, I have issues. ;)
So what does this all have to do with graphics?
We are business owners, whether we’re coaches, writers, virtual assistants, consultants, entrepreneurs, product-based or service-based. We are experts in our particular professions. We know how to use our skills and talents and we are great at it.
Graphics ADD to our online presence, just as home decor adds pieces of your personality to your home. They help us show others our business using a completely different and unique perspective. They make us look really good, by showcasing our particular talent or expertise.
Throughout the month of August, I’m going to walk you through the 5 W’s of how graphics can enhance your business:
WHO are these graphics for?
WHAT are they?
WHERE can you use them?
WHY should you use them?
And last but not least
HOW do you create them?
If you have any questions or comments at all, leave them in the comments and I’ll be happy to answer them.
