Add How-To DIY Photos to any home or self improvement blog and it’s a hit. A picture’s worth a 1000 words, and works better than a list of steps! If you’re not posting a video, post step-by-step images to show just how it’s done.

For flips and makeovers, make sure to include Before and After Shots (and remember, good lighting makes the pic.)

‘Real people’ are seen as more trustworthy than staged shots. Post live action photos in vivid color.

Up Close and Personal face shots work best. And don’t be shy in posting a questionable character, villain, or mad face. When you do, your audience knows a really good story is coming!

Animals are always a win-win because, of course, they always like you back (even if not with a click!)

Show off your audience! Host a contest, ask your readers for advice, and post their stories. It does wonders for your user engagement, and gives both you and your product street cred.

Something misplaced is the key to laughter, that is, something ordinary–that’s out of the ordinary–in everyday life. Man walks into a bar…happens every day, but the moment after that makes the joke. So show your world, but with a twist!
