Use Images to Take Sales Proposals to the Next Level: The Benefits of an Organized E-Catalog.

How powerful are images? Very. Consider this.

Forty percent of consumers have shared an image of a product via social media. Images on social media receive more engagement than text-only posts. Sixty percent of people are more likely to click on a business when images appear in its search results. Larger product images can increase online sales by as much as 9 percent.

It is regularly reported that 65% of us are visual learners, meaning that we need some sort of image to reinforce the message we are reading or hearing. Beyond that, visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text is.

The power of visuals in sales proposals

What does all that mean to you? In short, visuals matter. When you use images to communicate with clients, you capture their attention faster, while also increasing your chances that they receive your message and understand it more quickly. They immediately connect with your brand, your product, or your service. Images SELL.

Given the data, it just makes good business sense to include images in your communication with customers, specifically when it comes to the sales proposal. Integrating images of products allows you to break up text, create logic, and keep customers interested as they read the entire proposal. With customers’ ever-shrinking attention spans, you need to do everything you can to keep them focused on your presentation.

Furthermore, inserting images into your sales proposal allows customers to actually see your products. Some images are fully merged docuents, some are thumbnail, and everything in between. Bottom line images deliver proven results; yor client feels more informed and so they make quicker decisions. That decreases the length of the sales cycle.
