About the 'Empty wallet' Yoüverlay

In this Yoüverlay, you're looking through a purse or wallet, finding nothing, emptying it out.  Make it funny or serious. Pull rubbish or a chewing gum wrapper out and discard.


How to use this Yoüverlay in your marketing graphics


The ‘Empty Wallet’ Yoüverlay is a versatile and powerful visual metaphor that can be creatively used across various platforms to convey a range of messages aligned with a brand’s personality.

Here’s how it can be effectively utilised in Instagram posts and on a website:

Instagram Posts

  1. Thrifty/Discount Offer Post: Capture the ‘Empty Wallet’ Yoüverlay with a look of mock despair, then overlay text announcing a special discount or sale. Caption it with something like, “When your wallet’s on a diet but you still wanna shop #ThriftyFinds #SaleAlert”. This can attract followers looking for deals and emphasises the brand’s value-for-money proposition.
  2. Expensive/Luxury Product Tease: Use the Yoüverlay to create anticipation for a high-end product launch. The image could show the empty wallet, with a graphical overlay of the product barely visible inside, suggesting it’s worth emptying your wallet for. Caption: “Get ready to make some room in your wallet. #LuxuryUnveiled #WorthIt”.
  3. Candid/Behind-the-Scenes Story: Share a candid shot in the ‘Empty Wallet’ Yoüverlay with a genuine smile, as if laughing at the situation. Overlay text could say, “The real cost of being an entrepreneur.” Use a caption like, “Every empty wallet has a story filled with dreams and hard work. #EntrepreneurLife #CandidMoments”.
  4. Honest Financial Advice Post: Pose with an empty wallet and a thoughtful expression. Overlay text: “5 Tips to Stop Your Wallet from Starving.” Caption could be, “Honest talk about managing finances. Let’s fill up that wallet together! #FinancialFreedom #MoneyMatters”.

Website Integration

  1. Home Page (Rugged/Adventurous Brand): Feature the ‘Empty Wallet’ Yoüverlay prominently with a rugged background. Overlay text: “Invest in experiences, not things.” This sets the tone for a brand that values adventure and experiences over material possessions.
  2. Sales Page (Sarcastic Tone): Use the Yoüverlay with a sarcastic smirk, overlaying text like, “Thought luxury was out of reach? Think again.” It’s a playful nudge for visitors to reconsider what they can afford, especially with the deals you offer.
  3. Product Page (Wistful Vibe): For a product that’s often considered a splurge, show the ‘Empty Wallet’ Yoüverlay with a wistful look towards the product images. Overlay text: “Someday is today.” It encourages the leap from longing to owning.
  4. About Us Page (Messy/Honest Brand): Incorporate the Yoüverlay with a backdrop of a chaotic desk or workspace. Overlay text: “From empty wallets to dreams fulfilled.” This narrative shares the brand’s humble beginnings and growth journey, making it more relatable.
  5. Blog Post (Financial Advice for Millennials): Feature the Yoüverlay at the start of a blog post titled, “The Millennial’s Guide to Filling That Wallet.” Use the image to draw readers into a discussion about financial responsibility, savings, and smart investments.
