It has been found that 65% of sighted people are visual learners. What this means is that most people process visual or graphic information better than just text alone. Adding images or visual information can produce 180% more engagement than text alone because “colored visuals increase people’s desire to read by 80%”.

Visual information paired with movement increases this number further as “people are 85% more likely to buy your product after watching a video about it.”
