How to use images to increase your ROI on expensive content

Any marketer and creative will agree that the world is increasingly turning to visual content in search of the instant impact that only images and videos can provide. This is, of course, a natural consequence of the fact that more people than ever access social media through their mobile devices, turning images and videos into vital assets, as all kind of brands scramble to stand out from the rest of their competitors.

If you've ever worked in a Marketing department, you've probably been part of plenty of projects that never saw the light of day. Un(der)used design projects, photo shoots and ad campaigns are all part of the territory, and most of us are familiar with endless ideation and brainstorming sessions that never lead to anything.
