So how do you to achieve a strong visual brand across your platforms?

Be consistent: Images, video and other times of visual But you don't want to just have images that don't make sense to your brand. Your images, message and brand must all be consistent.

Add Value and Make it Interesting: Ideally, your content shouldn't be salesy. It should try to sell you, without beating over potential clients over the head with what you are selling. How to do that is to add value to what you are putting out there for your customer to see. In other words, "It's not what you do, but how you do it"** People care about connecting with something. They like community, they want to feel like they are part of something. You want to help them stay part of that so they stay keep coming back to you and stay engaged. 

Be Authentic: In the same vein as #2, people want to know you. They want to know the values of your company and they want to like the company/person they buy from. Customers can smell false pretenses and then they will run to the hills. So let me help you be true to yourself and be your storyteller.
 

Photography and Videography is an important part of this. You can define exactly what you want in your visuals and exactly on brand when you create and showcase your content/information.
