Uses for Stock Photos for your blog/marketing:
1. Feature Images
Basically all my feature Images are stock photos that I’ve edited on Canva for a text overlay!
2. Pinterest pins
Same thing! I also talk about how to create Pinterest graphics in this post.
3. Pinterest board covers
The way I use stock photos for board covers is overlaying text and a solid color with some transparency. Gives your board cover a nice backdrop.
4. Facebook Cover photos
5. Facebook Post Images
6. Facebook Ads
Use stock photos with dominant colors being anything other than blue, grey, black, white. Catch attention with orange, red, pink, etc.
7. In Post Images
In order not to slow down your website, I’d recommend embedding them instead of uploading them directly on your post!
8. Instagram posts
A great way to do this without claiming the photo as yours is overlaying text over the stock image.
9. Header Image on Your Blog
A nice backdrop for your logo
10. Email Header
Imageless Emails are so boring! Spice up your emails by adding a colorful header image with your logo on it!
