If you’ve logged onto any social media sites recently, or even been online for that matter, it’s impossible not to be lured in by the stunning visual content examples that surround your every click.  With sites like Pintrest and apps like Instagram popping up everywhere, visual content is on the

rise and is not slowing down anytime soon.

According to a recent article posted by Hubspot, “40% of people will respond better to visual information than plain text,” so it’s no wonder why visual content is posted so often.  Whether you’ve jumped on the visual content bandwagon or not, we thought some great examples might spark your creative juices.   Take a look at how some companies approach visual content, and why it works.

The visual content examples from Hubspot attract their target audience by showing real people and constantly giving off a personal, youthful, and modern image of a cutting-edge company.

Google has mastered the skill of basing its visual content on current events and relevant dates.  Not only does this prove to be quite entertaining (did you try the synthesizer?) but it shows visitors that Google is a company that is up-to-date, and always changing.

In the true spirit of the Olympics, Google created a simple and popular game for users.

Because we found ourselves explaining the concept of inbound marketing so many times, we figured why not create an infographics that will explain it?  Breaking the process down into a simple-to-follow graphic allowed for easy sharing and provided a useful sales tool, as well.
