Most marketers have opinions about what “type” of marketer among these groups and divisions is the most likely to be successful, but I’m here to tell you that any of them can be.

Hero Images: Photo Credit: Maaemo One of the best ways to capture a user’s attention is with a striking image. Featuring an HD image with a compelling call to action can increase conversions. According to Jerry Cao at Awwwards, “Since vision is the strongest human sense, HD hero images are one of the fastest ways to grab a user’s attention. Thanks to advances in bandwidth and data compression, users won’t suffer from slow load times either.” 2. Material Design: Photo Credit: Google Now Google’s material design style language is the next dimension to the flat design craze. Material design gives more depth to flat design by incorporating light and shadows, while featuring grid-based layouts and responsive animations. 3. Typography: Photo Credit: Streamlined and minimal designs allow typefaces to be dramatic and have a strong impact. Artistic, and calligraphic fonts are becoming popular because they feel personal and tangible. 4.
