Social Graphics 101: Tips and Tricks for Creating Graphics

Social media graphics are extremely important. Creating them may seem difficult, but no worries! We've got some tips and tricks on how you can make social graphics like the professionals.

Pictures are worth 1,000 words

We are visual creatures by nature. We remember more of what we see than what we read. We remember 20 percent of what we read and 80 percent of what we see. That is a big difference, especially when you are trying to reach your audience and have them remember your message.


If you want to add words to your graphic, the font is extremely important. Make sure that it is easily readable against the background of the graphic. Also, you want to limit the number of words you put on the graphic. For example, the caption can do the work of explaining any promotional deals while the graphic can be a split second look of "20% off!!"
