Blog posts with graphics get 94% more views than articles without images according to HubSpot. If you’re new to legal blogging, you might be struggling with finding and creating images for your posts. This post will definitely help you out.
Graphic Design Templates
Back in the day when I first started out in social media, creating graphics was tricky – I took a few photoshop classes and learned how to find pictures without copyright issues. Lucky for you it’s a lot simpler today. Canva is an online graphic design platform. It offers free access to a wide assortment of design tools and options, as well as premium options for paying customers. I use it every day and I encourage you to check it out. I use it for all my blog post and social media graphics.
Where To Find Pictures For Your Blog Posts and Status Updates
There are tons of websites that offer free, beautiful graphics. You can upload them to Canva and add text, etc. I’ve compiled a Google Spreadsheet listing all the websites I know. It’s a bit disorganized but I’ll be cleaning it up later.
Graphic Design Tips from HubSpot
- Add text to your images so people know what you’re writing about.
