You don’t always need to have a professional to get the right image. There are many sites available online that help you create a graphic for yourself and help you create that image you have visualized while putting up the blog together. Designing it by yourself will also have an edge over the others as who knows your blog better than yourself. You know best as to what needs to be conveyed and how you want your audience to perceive the write-up. Writing neat content is definitely the key. But the design is equally important and it helps get all the eyes towards your blog. A reader or your audience should et a complete experience and not get a half-baked project. It should not only be pleasant for the mind but pleasant for the eyes too.
Though there are various options for you to explore make sure you put up the typography and the fonts as per the audience you have. If you know your target audience are professionals, using a very casual and childlike font won’t do any good for your blog post. The colors and the graphics used also depend on what is appealing to the audience. Make sure you know who you are targeting and for what. Visualise what you need for your graphic and then start the work. Don’t overdo it such that it draws away all the attention from your blog. Make sure you want people to come to your blog and not just see the image and go away. Also, do not forget to keep a consistent design or theme for your posts. If people see your blog anywhere else, they should know it is XYZ’s blog just by the style that has been used. Learn the basics and keep the alignments, basic figures, and fonts in place.
The more appealing the image is the more shares is what you get. So make sure the image and visuals help pull in great traffic and builds a good amount of audience. The more the shares the more that traffic. And putting up a good graphic not only helps share your post but makes it look more professional and gives it an appeal. Last but not the least, keep it simple and let it create a place in the minds of your audience.
