6 Royalty Free Platforms For Small Businesses And Entrepreneurs

As it is famously said, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Every person sees a picture from a different perspective.

Beauty is not in the picture, but rather in the meaning that these different people make from it. 🙂🙂

Marketers use this particular trait of the human personality to their advantage and use it to appeal to the wider audience. Companies deliberately associate their products with certain images, so that whenever consumers see that image, they are reminded of the product. Because certain images are viewed distinctly by different people, companies can attract all kinds of people through one image. ☝️☝️

Photographs are an important part of one’s life. Since the invention of the camera, photographs were used to convey deep, real-life messages.

For instance - values, respect, strength, chivalry, power etc. which are ineffective and difficult to convey when written in words. 👀👀

This reminds us of the Chinese proverb: Pictures are worth ten thousand words.

Historically, images were also used widely to capture important events, festivals and memories. In this rapidly changing world, photographs have reached a whole new level in terms of their importance in our day-to-day lives. Images are now used for promotions, advertising, marketing and PR. 🗣🗣

People have recognised the growing importance of photos and have started using them for more than just capturing memories. And in their main purpose of marketing and advertising, images have proved to be highly beneficial. 💪💪

There are some facts about images which show us the importance of pictures for the human brain. People only remember 10% of information 3 days after hearing it; adding a picture would improve recall to 65% on average. Nearly two-thirds of people are visual learners.

This spark’s a question in our minds – What is a good image? ❓❓

Well, there is no particular definition of a good picture. There are no such boundaries for an image to be good. The definition of a good image is subjective and would vary from person-to-person. Whether a simple picture or a complex, once-in-a-lifetime capture, a good photograph never ceases to amaze its viewers. ✨✨

But - not everyone is a good photographer. For this reason, this blog post will explore certain websites that offer free and royalty-free images to its users. Small businesses and entrepreneurs can make great use of these images throughout their never-ending path of advertising and marketing.
