When it comes to marketing content, the web is cluttered, and the competition is tough.

This means it’s vital that your content be high quality, attractive, and memorable if you want to break through the clutter and capture the attention of your target audience.

Luckily, a great way to make your content stand out online is to make it more visual. Visual content is not only easier and faster for the human brain to process, but it is also a great way to generate more views, clicks, and conversions.

The importance of visual content has been highlighted by the evolution of the social media sites marketers use every day to promote their content and brands online. Facebook continues to modify its News Feed to include larger and more prominently displayed images and videos, Pinterest is now the fourth most popular social networking site, and Twitter now pulls pictures and videos right into its timeline — and has used its recent profile pages updateto allow for larger header photos and profile pictures.
