I was watching a You Tube video last night about using Google Keep for CRM and in it, the creator (Renee Shupe) talks about adding client images to her Google Keep notes to make it easier to identify the notes at a glance.
Which in and of itself, is a great idea and something I’m going to start doing myself.
But in her video I could also see that she is using images as title text for regular notes which definitely sparked my interest.
Below is a still from Renee’s video showing a combination of both normal (text titles) and enhanced (image titles) Keep notes which in my opinion create both more visually appealing and useful notes:
So, I thought I’d give it a go and below is my very quick attempt at creating an image as the title in a Google Keep note. Not quite as eye-catching as Renee’s notes but there’s definitely potential there. The note on the left definitely looks better and makes me take notice of it, whereas it is easy for my eye to glance over the one on the right – particularly in a crowded screen.
I used Pablo by Buffer to create the text and image – it is quick and easy, with over 600,000 images to choose from and different fonts and sizes.
But you could easily use a site like Canva with your own images or photos to create the text and image if you’re a bit more creative or have particular images you’d like to use.
Even better – it remains searchable!
And the beauty of using images as title text, is that they remain searchable within Google Keep so there’s no need to re-type the title text into the note’s body or title field.
Google Keep will index the text without any effort on your part and a normal search for the words in the image will bring up the appropriate note(s):

Not sure how to upload images to Google Keep or even what Google Keep is?
