It is in very human nature to enjoy watching photos. People like recalling nice moments from the past or having photos of friends and family around to feel more comfortable. Photos usually bring people together. When you start a company or a small business taking photos is valuable also for other reasons.
Build your identity
Take photos at milestones of your business activities: signing an agreement, renting a new office, attending a company event, inaugurating a product, or celebrating joining of a new team member. Any occasion that is relevant – is good. Later on, together with your colleagues, you will be able to recall those moments, reflect on the past, see the progress, help new joiners understand your history, and build your company identity.
Use photos in internal communication
Communication is one of the key factors in any endeavor. Startups don’t usually have marketing or communication departments that supply you with professional materials. Therefore, all visual materials will either be images downloaded from Internet or the ones taken by you. In addition to text, decent pictures can be an essence of internal communication or presentations. Internal communication materials can become much more engaging and persuasive if contain proper visuals. Preferably the ones you and your colleagues can relate to.
Use your own visuals in marketing
If you want other people to get to know your company present them not only with facts but give them true impression of what you do. If what you do can be presented in a form of picture, video clip, or any other visual that is part of your business, you have more chances to get people’s attention.
Visual materials can make a huge difference in making your communication style more lively and engaging. So get yourself a good camera, install a photo retouching software, sign yourself to photo course or a club, and take lots of photos. They will be useful in your business for sure.
