In today's blog post I'm sharing the TOP 3 PLACES I use to find images for use on my website, social media posts, newsletter and marketing materials. Not only for MY OWN Virtual Assistant Business...but these are great sources to recommend to clients as well!
By far, my favorite way to get high-quality images, graphics, mockups, and seasonal photographs is at Haute Stock. These are styled images made especially for women in business and/or lifestyle bloggers and they are GORGEOUS. This is honestly the only source of images that I pay for and it is well worth every penny.
Listen, I am certainly no photographer and without a doubt, the images I take with my iPhone are nowhere near as beautiful or eye-catching as those purchased at a stock photo company.
But that said, there is a great reason for using your OWN...
Do you think the colors you select for your Virtual Assistant Business brand make any difference? You bet they do! Stop for a moment and think about the company UPS. Did you just picture brown? (Probably brown trucks with brown Bermuda shorts on the driver, right?) The point is, your business can become known for its color scheme and it can also have a big effect on the way people perceive your company.
You are: Pure, Simple, Classic, Flawless, Clean and Innocent.
But be careful – that's mostly the way the ‘Western’ world sees white. In the middle East white is thought to symbolize death or mourning! Not exactly how you want to represent your company.
You are: Serious, Stong, Authoritative, Powerful, Elegant, Bold, Compelling and Talented.
Go easy if you’re using black – Too much can signify...
