Great images can make or break your email and event marketing. They can draw the eye, captivate the viewer and keep them on your messages. So, where do they come from? Many use stock image sites, whether free or subscription based. The problem is ... everyone uses those images! Benchmark Power Plugin to the rescue. Much like Mighty Mouse, here it comes to save the day.

That’s right! With the Benchmark Power Plugin, you have the ability to capture images from anywhere and everywhere on the web. You can add incredible images to your newsletters, event pages and more. Don’t forget, any and all images you put to use should be royalty free or else you have to request permission to use them and give proper credit. The Benchmark Power Plugin is available for free with every Benchmark account!
