Using Free Stock Images For Your Blog

I’m sure you know as well as I do how important the use of beautiful images can be for your blog. Your pin image you create could seriously make or break the traffic you get to that blog post! Though it would be awesome to be able to pay for all the images you use on your site, for a lot of us (especially if you’re just starting out) it’s just too expensive and sadly we are not all professional photographers. That’s why I decided to take a little bit of the work out for you. I found 40 websites where you can find free stock images for your blog that you can use!

Things to Know About Using Free Stock Images For Your Blog 

Just because a photo is free doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a copyright. Photos belong to the person that took them and it is up to the owner how this photo can be used.

Basically, whether you need to attribute the owner of the photo, where the photos can be used, etc. So, don’t just hop on over to google and start using pictures!

All the sites I have found have a different set of rules, though most are copyright free. Just be sure to do the research on the site that you are getting the free stock images for your blog from, so you know that you are totally legal using a specific image.

If this makes you a little nervous like me you can read up a little more on this here.

Using Beautiful Images For Your Blog and Marketing 

You are reading this right now, so I’m guessing that you already know that using images, (really really awesome images) is so dang important!

Articles with images get 94% more views!

Sure, people probably want to read what you have to say, but you have to get their attention first. An eye catching image (especially if the majority of your traffic is coming from social media and Pinterest) is what brings people to your site. The content is what they stick around for.

But how can you get people to your site if you don’t have that edge to reel them in? That’s where your free stock images for your blog comes in!

I make creating pins a priority because I know how freagin important it is to have compelling visual content that people want to click on.

At the least, it will make them want to re-pin it for later and that means more traffic for you because even more people will see your beautiful, eye catching pin.

That’s the point right? Traffic.
