<< To impose oneself through picture marketing >>
Picture Marketing can be defined as the use of visual aids such as photos, videos, animated gifs etc ... for the promotion of the activities, goods and services of the company on the internet. A study conducted by Track Social on 100 American brands registered on Facebook, shows that photos get 4 times more "likes" than other media (Source: tracksocial.com). And this result is extended to other social networks such as Twitter, Google, Tumblr or Instagram. It must be said in fact that, the result of the study conducted by Track Social, confirms the reality according to which "A image value 1000 words", long texts annoy Internet users and do not always attract their attention. In a digital environment saturated with information, it is therefore smart to resort to the use of images, (which we stress are easily identifiable, memorizable and shareable) to transmit emotions and convey messages within the web community.

Establishing a good communication strategy already gives the company a certain notoriety. The advent and emergence of e-commerce and social networks, requires the company to adapt to new communication, marketing and advertising practices in order to face the competition and be frozen in the memory of Internet users.
