2. Is Your Marketing This Bad?

There were six bullet points in a printed promotional mailer I received. It’s quite clear it was supposed to induce me to find out more about them.
Whoever put this together for them; along with whoever approved it; should be severely reprimanded.
Read the six bullet points, why they were so bad and how to make sure your marketing hits the spot. Read here

4. How to take your photos from drab to fab:

Do you ever take in the scenery around you and think wow; how amazing. I must take a picture? But when you look down at the photo it just doesn’t compare?

Well I’ll let you in on a little secret called saturation just a tap waiting at the end of your fingertips. Take the picture I have used below as an example I was working in the Gold Coast last week and it’s hard not to fall in love with the endless white sand beaches and blue skies, yet the photo I took is slightly dull looking compared to the beautiful sunny day I was experiencing.

Drab to fab is super simple to do:

  1. iPhone open the photo, click edit> click the dial icon> click colour and again adjust to your desired colour.
  2. Samsung; open the photo> click the edit image icon> click tone> click saturation> then move your finger across the screen to adjust the colour.
  3. Iinstagram uploading a photo click edit>Saturation and then adjust to your liking.

Often even the smallest adjustments can add tremendous oomph into your photos.
