There are a lot of people using social media. Some use it for business. Some use it for personal reasons. Some use it for both. At any given moment there are millions of messages out there just waiting to be noticed. And that’s the problem. Social media messages are hard to notice. They all compete with each other. Ever read a book with no images? Hundreds of pages with no text would be awfully boring, wouldn’t it? It’s be very easy for the reader to overlook a message. Same thing applies with social media.
Take a look at this simple tweet I sent saying hello.
Now take a look at the same tweet, sent using Notegraphy.
I’d notice the message with the picture over the one with the text every single time.
Let’s say you type a brilliant marketing message. Or a really funny joke. Or a great call to action. And let’s also say you did it using plain old text. How many people are going to see that tweet? Not as many as you’d like, and not as many as you could have reached had you grabbed their attention.
If you want your message noticed you need an edge over everyone else. Imagine a stream full of tweets like this.
Which one immediately catches your eye? The one with the image of course, which I made in a few seconds with Notegraphy. Your eyes cannot help but be drawn to the colorful image.
So, what’s Notegraphy?
Notegraphy is a free app that lets users add colorful, eye-catching graphics to their social media messages. The app is really easy to use. You type in the message you want to send. Then, you style your message by choosing one of over 40 templates, which are made by some of the world’s top graphic designers. Once you select your template you can choose from three variations of it.
Once you’ve selected the style you want to use, you are ready to share your message. It’s easy to share with the major social networking and messaging apps.
That’s it. It is just that simple.
Your notes are saved in your account for easy access later. And what you do on one platform is visible on another. For example, let’s say you use Notegraphy on your mobile phone to send a tweet. Then later you log into Notegraphy from your desktop computer. Your notes are still saved and easy for you to access. You can even create your own gallery containing your favorite notes for other Notegraphy users to view. The explore feature that will let other Notegraphy users find you also works the other way, enabling you to find new friends and interesting people to follow.
Here’s a brief video showing how Notegraphy works.
Why anyone would send a message using ordinary text instead of one with a colorful and attention-grabbing image over social media ever again is beyond me. Notegraphy is definitely a keeper for me.
