In today's modern world, visual marketing is one of the most important aspects of digital advertising. In an age of flashing videos, eye-catching infographics, and short bites of information, a large block of text won't attract your clients' attention the way it might have several decades ago. For this reason, most companies are incorporating eye-catching visuals into their marketing strategy: charts, memes, graphics, presentations, stock photos, even animated GIFs. A picture is more likely to catch a client's attention as they scroll through their newsfeed, and a well-designed ad could even go viral.
Recently, Venngage interviewed over 300 online marketers to collect data on visual marketing strategies and try to predict trends in the upcoming year. Stock photos and infographics were used most often, but other graphics like charts and videos also performed well. If you're interested in boosting your marketing strategy this year, here are some key insights that could help you dominate in your industry.

There are customers who buy from you once and disappear. There are customers who buy from you multiple times. And, then there are customers who buy from you over and over again, shouting your name from the rooftops.
Obviously, the latter is pure gold. Especially, when those customers have a large influence on the opinion and purchase behaviors of your target audience. Traffic, leads, sales and revenue, on autopilot.
But wait, let's take a step back. Who are these magical beings I speak of?
These people are the bedrock of your business. Highly satisfied customers who scream your company's name from the mountain tops, without being incentivized to do so. They are twice as valuable as your average customers, and drive 20-50% of all purchases.
Brand advocates drive over $6 trillion in consumer spending each year.
Despite the bottom line impact, there is a massive advocacy gap. In the US, over 80% of companies are not using advocates in their marketing strategy, and 58% don't even know who their advocates are!
This results in a HUGE wasted opportunity for the majority of businesses. But, also opens up a major opportunity for the minority who give it the attention it deserves.
Which camp do you fall in? If it's the latter, keep reading...
Because the team at JitBit - a leading helpdesk software provider - have put together the infographic below. It covers the Who, What, Where, How and Why of brand advocacy, and highlights the bottom line benefit it has on every business.

If you think you’re spending too much time on your phone, you might be right. Influencer marketing agency Mediakix found that the average person spends 5 years and 4 months on social media in a lifetime. This is equivalent to traveling to the moon and back 32 times, walking the Great Wall of China more than 3 times, and watching the entire The Simpsons series more than 215 times. In the context of our daily activities (excluding sleeping), it places only second to watching TV in overall time spent. Astoundingly, we spend more time on social media than we spend eating or drinking and socializing with people face to face.
The infographic from Mediakix breaks down the average daily time spent on each major social media platform, including YouTube, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. Unsurprisingly, social media users are spending the most time on YouTube, averaging 40 minutes, followed by Facebook, averaging 35 minutes, then Snapchat at 25 minutes, Instagram at 15 minutes, and Twitter, averaging 1 minute a day. Over a lifetime, this is 1 year and 10 months on YouTube exclusively, 8 months on Instagram, and 18 days on Twitter. Check out the infographic below to see exactly how we spend our time on social.
