Images not Words get the most Attention on Facebook

“Don’t judge a book by its cover,” is a saying that will never go out of date because, that is how we interpret the world we live on, we see an image and based on our interpretation of the image, we will decide whether or not to dig a little bit deeper.

This concept is behind a lot of marketing especially on social media platforms. Marketers understand that they will only have a moment of their target market’s attention, and if they do not grab their interest in that moment, the message they are sending will never be delivered.

Unless you have a product with has an appealing image such as woman’s clothes or baby accessories, you will have to use alternative images to get the attention of your target market.

The images should be related to your target market’s interests. Below are some of the images I have shared in the past that get the general public’s attention.
