The Power of Visual Content: How Your Business Can Benefit from AI-Generated Images and Videos

AI Generated Image

According to Trend Reports, between 65 and 85 percent of people describe themselves as visual learners. Text alone isn’t enough to attract your audience and effectively convey your message.  Visual content is a necessary staple of effective communication and marketing strategies. Whether you’re engaging with coworkers, prospects, or customers, the use of images and videos can significantly enhance your messaging, drive engagement, and ultimately, boost your business success. The problem is, that we’re not all digital artists or video editors. But, with advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI), the talent gap has been greatly diminished and with the right tools, strategies, and some practice, you can ramp up your ability to produce excellent visual content and videos. In this blog, we’ll explore why visual content is crucial for businesses and how AI tools can give your content creation process a boost.

The Importance of Visual Content

Research consistently shows that visual content is more engaging and memorable than text alone. According to Brain Rules, people remember 65% of information when it is paired with a relevant image, compared to only 10% when the information is presented without an image. Visual content can be the difference between connecting with your audience and being remembered or falling flat and being forgotten.

When considering the effectiveness of visual content, the human brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than text. Using images and videos can help convey complex information quickly and effectively. For businesses, this translates into more efficient meetings, clearer project updates, and more compelling marketing materials.

Statistics on the Impact of Visual Content

In our world of scrolling and information saturation, a compelling image can make all the difference in whether your ideal client stops to engage or simply scrolls along. According to HubSpot, social media posts with images produce 650% higher engagement than text-only posts. Similarly, video content is an incredibly powerful and necessary communication method to remain relevant. With 85% of businesses using video as a marketing tool, and 88% of video marketers reporting a positive ROI, if you’re not utilizing video content in your messaging strategy, it’s almost a guarantee that competitors are reaching your audience instead of you. If you want to share your business message effectively, visual content must be a part of your communication strategy.

Can AI replace my graphic designer and video editor?

The answer simply is, “No.” AI is not a replacement for graphic designers and video editors. It can, however, be a power boost. While there are many benefits to utilizing AI to save time and increase output, AI tools are not a replacement for human talent. It is after all your people who live out your company culture and bring authenticity to all of your messaging. You and your people are still the key ingredient to create consistency in your brand messages and connect with your audience.

It is vital to have talented people overseeing your communication strategy. It is your people who need to coach AI to understand your audience, your business culture and voice, and your key differentiators if you want your AI output to even come close to being helpful. Plus, AI needs talented people reviewing, editing, adjusting, and finalizing all of the content it puts out.

The Benefits of AI-Generated Images and Videos

While AI can’t replace your people, leveraging AI tools to generate visual content still offers several benefits. AI image creation and video editing tools can save you time designing and editing, offer creative suggestions, and increase your content output. 

Efficiency: AI tools like DALL-E 3, Canva’s Magic Studio, and Choppity can streamline the content creation process. These tools allow you to quickly generate high-quality images and videos, saving valuable time and resources.

Creativity: AI-powered tools can produce creative visuals that might be difficult to achieve manually. For instance, DALL-E 3 can create unique images from textual descriptions, enabling you to visualize complex ideas and concepts effortlessly.
