If you’ve been wondering where to find free images to use on your website or in social media posts, you’ve hit upon the perfect post!
The power of an image on social media or your website is immense.
Using great images helps to brand your business, remain in people’s mind for longer and plant a seed which may lead to sales or a new client for your business!
There are definitely times when only a bespoke image will do (if you’re selling your own products or want to show the ‘personal’ side of your business with behind the scenes shots and images of your staff, for example).
But, stock images have their place and when well used, they can have a powerful impact on your potential customers and clients. Here are some of the many places on line where you can find great quality free images. All of these images were – at the time of writing – available free under the Creative Commons CC0 licence. Please remember that it is your responsibility to check the licence under which these and any other images you come across online are given.
