How much is attracting a potential customer worth to you?
Most of us have heard the old adage "a picture is worth a thousand words" many times, and nowhere is it more applicable than in your company website. A website with a mostly white background, too much text, very few pictures or poor quality images tend to lose the viewer's attention quickly.
Catch your viewer's attention with a colourful, attractive website featuring lots of high quality images, and video with decent resolution. Putting it in perspective, if you spend an extra $200 when available. It's important to expose your products or services using attractive photos because this reflects on you. Poor quality pictures might be interpreted by viewers as poor quality products or services.
Affordable Web Design Ltd highly recommends buying online stock photos for your main website pictures, and saving your own pictures of your products for photo galleries and such. Once a viewer goes to your product photo gallery, they are ready to see actual product or service photos, and quality becomes less of an issue at that point.
In addition, there is a lot more to having great pictures on your website than just uploading a picture. There are picture sizing issues, file size optimization issues, and many other factors that professionals like Affordable Web Design team members know how to deal with for you. Optimizing is the most important, as it strips the file size down so that the picture uploads quickly without losing its sharpness.
It is probably best never to use any photos you find on search engines websites such as Google or Bing:
