A Thousand Words: Using Visual Storytelling to Engage Your Communities


A Thousand Words: Using Visual Storytelling: A picture is worth a thousand words…and sometimes our pictures don’t say what we want them to.  Your visual social media feed, whether Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or other platforms, can quickly engage your audiences in your story, but only if you’re consciously deciding on your visual narrative. Learn how to quickly build your story arc with still pictures and “mini-movies” to create an emotional connection.
