Image is everything when it comes to web design

Websites are visual – and long gone are the days of pages and pages of text. That means that your website (and your marketing, including your social media posts) need to use images, and use them well, and that usually means using great photography. They say a picture paints a thousand words, and it’s very true. Facebook posts that include a picture tend to have...
