Conquering Visuals: New Sites Add More Options for Images

In our highly-visual culture, images are an important piece of the content puzzle. It’s another way to draw readers in, and the below tools will wow your audience and help you permanently delete clip art from your media gallery. We even added a bonus tool that will help you unwind after a long day of PR and Marketing work.

ThingLinkFinalGood for Content Creators:
ThingLink: We won’t lie – we squealed with delight when we stumbled upon an interactive image created with ThingLink. Go ahead and see for yourself on our image to the right. If you scroll underneath our very eloquent, ‘Whoa,’ you will see icons emerge that link to our site and Facebook page. Imagine the possibilities!

Good for Social Media Fanatics & Brands:
Zeen: A project from YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, Zeen is a site that allows users to ‘create something beautiful.’ ‘Zeens’ are bite-sized pieces of content. Users can Collect, Customize and Share, offering the ability to tell a story with images, videos, words, articles, maps and more.

Good for the Soul:
Happify: The site offers activities and games ‘based on a decade’s worth of cutting-edge research by psychologists and neuroscientists.’ It recommends daily activities that deliver the best results for you based on your goals, which aim to make you feel engaged, motivated and excited about your future. The activities and exercises are aimed to help you form life-changing habits. There is currently a wait list to join, but you should be happify-ing in no time!
