How often does that perfect first impression make the buying decision for us? Businesses know what their customers want and in the world of the digital artwork, visual impressions can influence new buying habits.
Shoppers who frequently check social media sites like Instagram are always looking for the best photos of the products that they like or are looking to buy. They look at a few things before they even look at the price. They look at color, first and foremost. Impulse shoppers can make a snap decision on whether to buy something solely based on its color. Therefore, marketers make the colors bold.

There are other ways to catch the shoppers eye though. Many organizations inspire others to act in the community based on the visual impressions they give on their website or social media accounts. This can help to connect them with the community and to other donors. They tell their story with maps on an interactive app on mobile phones.
