As the end of the week approaches, I know as a social media marketer it feels like you’re starting to run out of steam. All week you have been posting eye-catching and intriguing posts on all of your social media platforms, and by the time you reach the end of the week: the internet seems boring!
Don’t worry – I am here to help.
We all know visual content is the way to your fans and followers’ hearts. Therefore, I have scoured the internet this morning to bring you a few images, and their sources, that can help boost your morale into Friday. I’ve also thrown in a few tidbits on how you can apply these ideas into your own social strategy.
P.S. If you make it to the end, you’ll see a brand new image produced by our own designers!

This image is one of 15 quotes Mashable converted into visual content. These quotes could have been easily written as text statuses, but instead Mashable knew they would be more share worthy as images.
For your own social platforms, think about what quotes would resonate with your audience. Then, take advantage of tools like Post Designer to bring them to life. If you need a little help getting started, be sure to check out our Instagram page where we have shared many designs doing just that under the #MadeWithPagemodo hashtag!

This image took a common story that everyone knows, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and updated it to a modern era. To an audience who understands the hilarity in what is frequently posted on Instagram (food and hashtags), they will most definitely engage with this image poking fun at the platform.
This is a great strategy to keep in mind as you look for shareable images. Take something common and apply it to a funny platform everyone will understand. Be sure to bookmark Scrivan’s website; it has a lot of great content to help you find what works for your audience.

This image played off of the viral sensation, #TheIceBucketChallenge. Again, using a common topic for humor is a great way to increase engagement with a wide audience on a variety of platforms.
Just remember when using images from other sources (ones you did not create yourself) to credit the website or person who posted the image. If you need a little help on understanding the rules of doing so, check out our blog post on downloading images legally online.
And without further ado, we present a Pagemodo original cartoon honoring Throwback Thursday (#TBT):
