* According to Bob Cargill :
It's true. Content may be king, but visuals rule. All the latest study and statistics suggest that images on social media command more attention than text alone.
 If we want to know that why visuals are important we can understand by the example of "Google Doodle", Google daily changes it's landing page's doodle to make it appealing.



# People prefer visuals :
                                                         As mentioned before people are visual beings. Online consumers can retain only 10 to 20% of the information they read or hear about, but once that information is paired with visual elements, the information retained suddenly goes up to 65%. At any given time, the human brain can only process a very limited amount of information. In addition, any information that can be processed faster will take priority in grabbing a person’s attention.

As a matter of fact, your articles can experience a 37% increase in engagement if they are optimized with compelling visual content.


# Your Audiences Loves Video :
