Top tip from your Concise team

A picture speaks a thousand words!

Visual content is the most engaging form of content. Use images to evoke an emotion, such as interest, happiness, inspiration, fear, curiosity, wonder, or desire.  Memes work well but be careful not to infringe copyright.

Pexels is a great resource and helps you find great photos that can be used free for both personal and commercial purposes with no attribution required. You can also contribute your own photos.
