Professional photography on your website can provide several benefits and enhance the overall quality of your online presence. For clients that do not already have high-quality professional photography, here at Eldo, we include professional stock photography as part of every website project (lovely, eh).
We know that stock photography doesn’t always work. Some projects need dedicated imagery specific to the company or product. However, decent generic or lifestyle imagery does wonders for most websites and makes a modern website shine.
Here’s why we recommend using professional photography instead of your dodgy iPhone pics!
Professional photographs capture attention and create a positive first impression. High-quality images with proper composition, lighting, and clarity can significantly enhance the visual appeal of your website. This can make your website more engaging and visually appealing to visitors.
Branding and Identity:
Professional photography allows you to showcase your products, services, or team uniquely and consistently. Customized images can reflect your brand’s personality, values, and identity, helping you establish a solid and memorable visual brand presence.
Visitors who come across your website judge your business based on its appearance. Professional photography adds credibility and professionalism to your website, conveying that you take your business seriously and are committed to quality.
Professional photography can set you apart from competitors in a crowded online marketplace. It enables you to showcase your offerings in a visually appealing and unique way, making you more memorable to potential customers.
Well-crafted images have the power to evoke emotions and create a connection with your audience. Professional imagery can resonate with viewers and elicit positive emotions, helping you forge a stronger bond with website visitors.
Improved Conversion Rates:
Compelling visuals can have a direct impact on your website’s conversion rates. High-quality photos can increase customer trust, encourage longer browsing, and increase conversion rates and sales.
Professional images can positively impact your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts. Optimized images with relevant alt tags and metadata can improve your website’s visibility in search engine results, increasing organic traffic.
When you come to Eldo for your website, we include professional stock photography from Shutterstock as part of our project fee. This could be some lifestyle shots, something more gritty, something location-based… whatever is needed to get the job done. Just get in touch!
