For day 2 I'm going to show you how I use stock photos on my website! Hopefully this gives you some idea of how you might be able to use stock photography!
Now let's start jazzing up your site & blog!
The top example is from my VIP opt-in page! Opt-in pages are a perfect place to pop an image in. Even if you're just starting to build up your website/business/brand, you should at least have a cover page for collecting emails to let people know of your upcoming launch!
The second example is a header/banner photo for my Custom Stock Photo info page. Stock photos with items on the left or right hand side are a perfect fit for banner images!
Third example is from my home page, I use stock photos designed on Canva in squares with text to create buttons to help new site visitors know where to go if they need some more info.
The last example is from yesterday's blog post. Here I use a stock photo to break up the text. I'm a big fan of breaking up blog posts to make it easier on readers as well as more visually appealing. You can upload a full image and then use Squarespace photo editor to crop it down to a smaller size or you can use an Etsy cover photo template from Canva to create a batch of them to add to your blog posts whenever needed!
Hopefully these examples sparked some ideas of how you can use stock photos!
Are you interested in getting access to a library full of stock photos to use? Stay tuned for my upcoming black friday sale!!
Here's your gift for day 2! *hint* it's a stock photo used in one of the examples!
