Picture This

An old rule of thumb that’s been proven over and over again in print advertising appears to be equally true in the blogosphere: people like pictures, and they like pictures of people best.  Some of the best-read consumer blogs being written today include photos of the writer engaged in the activities being written about.  In any medium, people need to feel a connection.  If a blog is part of your online marketing effort, consider posting pictures of real people that relate to the topic, and see what happens to readership.
