I recommended to the folks at SxSW that next year’s conference should have a session on "image strategy for publishers," and that I’m just the guy to lead the discussion. If that sounds like an interesting topic, please click on the button above to vote for my session.
"Friends are more likely to hit the Like Button if status updates include a photo; Tweets with pictures have a longer shelf life than those with text or links alone. Even news publishers report that the majority of page views happen in photo galleries. It’s no wonder that images take up more of the web’s pixels than they did 5 years ago — or 5 months ago."
If selected, I promise to offer up at least 5 good ideas on how you can boost the effectiveness of the images on your site. Maybe I’ll even hand out cupcakes.
