In this post, I wanted to curate a visual essay out of my screenshot collection. A recent infographic claimed that articles that contain images receive 94 percent more views than those without. Visuals are processed 600,000 times faster than text. Audiences can recall 65% of the visual content that they see almost three days later, in comparison to about 10% of written content. Adding an image at the beginning of every article reduces bounce rate; and with more engagement you can generate higher revenue and cultural authority.
