The web is a visual medium…and credibility is won and lost in the blink of an eye. Images are like currency in the world of social media. Your brand needs a visual content strategy.

And yet…we leave visual content strategy in the hands of talented (but strategically inexperienced) graphic designers. This is a huge mistake. From graphics and videos to text and apps, all content must be within your control. Starting today, content marketers own visual content strategy.

This session will give you seven (and a half) tips to help you improve your visual content strategy. Learn how to audit your existing visual content resources, control the eye on your website, and create shareable visual content assets. You may be surprised at the storytelling techniques you can pick up from unlikely places.

Even if you’ve never pushed a pixel in Photoshop, you can plan and govern an effective, measurable visual content strategy. This presentation on visual content strategy is much more than theory…it is a practical action plan for the content marketer.

And it includes examples of how the eyes read a website in a Z Pattern using comic books. Yes, you can learn something from comic books and other sequential art to improve your branded content marketing storytelling.
