Over the last few months, we’ve spent a lot of time talking about the different ways you can use images to improve your email marketing results.

We’ve looked at some awesome examples from other small businesses that have already started using images to bring their emails to life, and have rolled out a series of best-practice videos to help you put a visual email marketing strategy into action.

If you’ve already started using images in your own email marketing, you’ve hopefully seen the difference that using images the right way can make.

But you may have also noticed that finding the perfect image can come with some challenges.

One of the biggest challenges is finding an image that you’re actually allowed to use.

You may not realize it, but there are some pretty serious restrictions on the types of photos you’re actually allowed to use online. And while it can be tempting to just perform a Google search and grab the first image that comes up, doing so could put you at risk of experiencing a copyrights-violation headache.

Luckily, there are a number of resources you can rely on to find the perfect picture.

In the last video of our image best practices series, you will learn three ways to safely find the perfect picture for your next email campaign!
