FIR co-host Shel Holtz talks with Ekaterina Walter and Jessica Gioglio, who are out with a brand new book from McGraw Hill, The Power of Visual Storytelling: How to Use Visuals, Videos, and Social Media to Market Your Brand.
The publisher’s description of the book notes:
- The human brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than text.
- Web posts with visuals drive up to 180% more engagement than those without.
- Viewers spend 100% more time on web pages with videos.
Filled with full-color images and thought-provoking examples from leading companies, The Power of Visual Storytelling explains how to grow your business and strengthen your brand by leveraging photos, videos, infographics, presentations, and other rich media. The book delivers a powerful road map for getting started, while inspiring new levels of creativity within organizations of all types and sizes.
