They’re all the rage for taking a complex idea and transforming it into an eye-pleasing visual. Why you should jump on board the infographic train Our online world is more and more visual everyday. The rise of Instagram, the Pinterest explosion and the number of images in your Facebook feed are proof that we want our content delivered in a pretty package. Below, I’m sharing three ways that you can use infographics to cut through the clutter and seduce your prospects (or the media.) 1. Make a resource for your clients. Give your clients and prospects a handy, all-in-one reference and you’ll have a fan for life. Best of all, it’ll get shared among your target market without you having to lift a pinky. Here’s one by LunaMetrics that has been shared all over the interwebs. (Keep on scrolling…it’s long.)

Put it in your press release. The media loves visuals, especially visuals that tell a story. If you can create an infographic that makes an impact or makes it easier to understand the story of your company, your product or your service, you’ve just boosted your chances of being picked up. By a lot. Got a “tips” article to pitch? Responding to a query on HARO, Reporter Connection or other journalist/source matching service? Make an infographic of your best advice and you’ve got a piece of marketing collateral that you can keep using, over and over again.
