As many of you know, we’ve opened SSG ATL, the second ever installment of See.Spark.Go. We may be laying roots throughout Georgia, but we tell the best stories all over. And, we have the best people (just sayin’). Our team and the company we keep attracted our first-ever Atlanta-based intern, Jordan Nations, all the way from Sarasota, Fla. See, we’re all over.

SO HOW DO YOU DO IT?
The positive impact of visual content in your organization’s communication is measurable, and it has never been easier to create and share visuals straight to your targeted consumer’s pocket.
Invest in quality pictures and graphics worth sharing.
Have a good quote to share from the CEO? Overlay that quote on top of a picture of them speaking. Want people to know the benefits of your product or service? Create an informative infographic that displays the information clearly with language consumers will understand. Use images from your events, office happenings or advertising to engage your audience and make your brand personal.
Another option is using high-quality photos from websites like Unsplash or Pixabay to enhance your content. These photos are free and can be used however you’d like according to each site’s creative commons licensing policy.
