Alt Chat Wednesday: Showing Your Voice Through Your Visuals

By: Eden Hensley; Photos by: Brooke Dennis for Alt Summit

Humans are drawn to images. Images today are your calling card. And your calling card needs to be strong to drive the right traffic to you.

What are your photos saying about you? Together do they tell a consistent story? Or are they all over the place? The secret to a visual brand that showcases your voice? Consistent photo styling.

Join the Alt community on Twitter Wednesday morning (tomorrow) July 1st at 9 AM PST/12 PM EST for an hour-long chat about photo styling. We will be talking about why photos are important, how you can develop a voice or consistent style, and more.

New to Twitter chats? You can find all the details on how to participate in a live Twitter chat here.

  1. Improve your photos in four steps.
  2. Once you have your image you’re not done; you need to do some post-processing. Depending how you process your images, and if you’re consistent, it may become part of your visual brand.
  3. If you’re not a photographer, find photos that you can legally use on your blog and in your social media.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
