When it comes to creating content, there is a fine line between sharing and theft when it comes to the internet.
We're all guilty of sharing the latest meme or TikTok video, and that's fine. Even science is beginning to emerge that much like pictographs in ancient Egypt or cave wall paintings of early man; memes may be their own valid form of communication in the digital age.
But what happens when you want to share or create content for your business? You can pull a picture off google images.
Well, you can. But you shouldn't.
Using photos that you do not own or have not licensed is technically theft. And using pixelated pictures with a watermark slapped in the middle for your companies social media looks unprofessional.
If you are a DIY marketer but have little to no graphic design experiences, services like freepik.com are a fantastic option. You can have confidence in your graphics, and I can sleep better at night, knowing you aren't stealing pictures off the internet.
Freepik.com was founded in 2010 by brothers Alejandro and Pablo Blanes, along with their friend Joaquín Cuenca; they felt the urge to create a platform where designers could find free graphic resources. Pablo and Joaquín supported his idea, and that's how Freepik Company was formed.
