Using stock photography is imperative in this digital day and age. If you are not already aware, you will very soon learn that readers respond to visual stimuli much more easily than they do text.
Thanks so much for joining me at Blog Life University! I hope that after our session, you won't be afraid to use stock photos for your blog. There are a lot of great resources available where you can get great photos. Some of the stock photography is free and some stock photos are from paid sites, for as cheap as $1 a photo.
90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.
