Where To Find Capture Page Images
Capture Page Images
To create a high converting capture page sometimes requires a stunning background. These are not always easy to find and once you find a good source its like finding gold.
A few things about Capture page images
The images contained on your capture page must be visually engaging to your audience and relevant to your target audience. This means if you were making a landing page targeting golf, it would be a good idea to have an image related to golf in the background as opposed to say a fishing image.
If you have a look at the text in the capture page image above you will see that it has the word beech in there which makes the background image relevant tothe text and hints at the prospect of working from the beach.
The problem is many people are using images they find on the internet which do not belong to them. I hope this is not you.
The problem with images is trying to find quality images for your backgrounds which you can legally use. See what happens is a person visit’s Google images, looking for a capture page image. People tend to think it’s cool I can grab any image I want. This is not the case and there are lots of people who have been fined for using images that they did not have permission to use. It is a bit of a nightmare sometimes.
Unless the image has been made available to public use, there is a possibility that the image has some form of copyright attached. If it does and you do not have permission to use it, then you will be sent a desist from using letter, and possibly be taken to court and fined. Some fines are quite substantial.
That’s the doom and gloom out of the way. There is a ray of sunshine. If you want to use Google images. Then Look at the image below click on search tools, labelled for reuse, and then click labelled for reuse. If you change your settings, Google will only show you images that are labelled for reuse.
Doing this will generally mean you will be okay to use the images, however when you do restrict your search like this you do not get many good results. So here is a list of places where you can find images, just make sure you check the licence requirements first and you understand what the licence requirements mean. Each site will tell you.
