"Show. Don't tell. Creating Visually Useful Infographics For Your Audience."
This was a presentation given by Suzanne McGill, the Senior Graphic Designer at StrataBlue -- a full-service digital marketing agency. The presentation was delivered at the National Association of Bar Executive's Conference in Indianapolis on October 2, 2014.
Infographics are very beneficial for many different reasons. They provide great brand recognition and SEO benefits.
Whether you’re a butcher, banker or beautician, your business can benefit from the power of infographics. Any company can use this visual tool on social media, and research indicates that infographics assist companies in increasing traffic 12% faster than organizations that don’t use them.
Embrace the Visual Marketing Era
We’ve learned through science that 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual and is processed 60,000 times faster than text. (Maybe it’s time to revisit adding Pinterest, Instagram or Snapchat to your brand’s marketing strategy.) The daunting fact about creating infographics for many marketers is the time investment required.
A successful infographic does not exist without data. If it’s time you are worried about investing in an infographic, look back on your past blog posts, case studies or surveys to cut out a majority of the work! You’ve already put in hours, maybe even months’ worth of work, so repurpose the content to be more visually appealing on different platforms. If you are interested in which infographic will perform best with your target audience, try using Facebook Dark Posts to analyze which visual resonates best with your fans.
