Whether it’s a weekly joke, dialogue guidelines or decision trees, brands spend countless hours honing and personifying their brand on social media. But few tactics are as effective at conveying a brand's personality on social media as a well-used image. In this quick-scroll world of social media, the visual face of your brand is often times the first thing your audience sees and it might be the one thing they remember.
