How do you get more recognition, exposure for your story, your brand, your communications? Get into “pictures”.  You don’t have to become a Hollywood star to be in the pictures. By simply telling your story in the universal language of pictures, your communications can and will be better understood and also shared by many folks, your audience, your team…so, your circle of people grows!

It’s in our genes to communicate with images.

We are hardwired to understand images from our time of birth. 90 % information sent to the brain is visual and 93% of all human communication is visual.

These facts are brought to you by www.business2community.com  which boasts an article on “The Physiology of Visual Communication” stating that we indeed have to work harder to process text than pictures or visual input. At birth a baby can understand the image of his of her mother, many months before understanding what the word “mommy” is or what it means. We are born with the innate ability to understand images…and we understand images INSTANTLY!

Speed is favored in today’s quickly changing life and business.

And, how fast do and can we “share” our ah ha moments, our learnings, our new ideas? The era of all text is gone, people respond and share a printed page that has images or pictures on it at the rate of 94% with all copy page content only landing a 16% recognition.

The gurus at “Hubspot” also say: thinking is sparked by seeing…visual content is more than 40 times more likely to get shared on social media than other types of content.

Visual storytelling is the new “talk”.
Get more folks on the same page, your page, your ideas expressed with quick understanding, expressed uniquely in simple visual imagery that captures the spirit and content of your story. As you see, the numbers support finding a greater possibility for recognition, sharing, learning, and growing by telling your story with pictures.
