TWITTER

Gone are the days when a 140 (now 280) character pitch was enough to get you eyeballs on Twitter. According to several Twitter marketing case studies, Tweets with images get retweeted 150% more times than those without.

Easy-to-read but information-packed infographics are one visual tactic brands can use to increase engagement on Twitter.

LINKEDIN

LinkedIn is no longer a bland professional network which requires no wow factor. While brand fidelity and content clarity continue to be most crucial to LinkedIn, a pretty looking LinkedIn profile is a priceless asset and a strong invitation for more business.

Aim for polished, maximum resolution pictures and if recruitment is the goal, use your available image space judiciously to show off your company’s best side.
