Email Marketing Template Essentials: Stock Photos
Written by Kaleigh Harley.
Websites, blogs, and yes – email marketing campaigns are nothing without photos. They look drab and lifeless and VERY 90s if all you have is text. Photos create feelings in people, they inspire understanding of who you are, what you’re about, what you’re trying to do.
But who’s got the time to set up vintage toys against dried out flowers and play with the ISO settings on your camera for the next hour? Or the money to pay someone to do it for you?
Being a business owner, big or small means that you are always short on time and money for things like filler-photos on your email marketing campaigns. So let’s take the hard work out and give you a list of our favourite FREE stock photo websites!
