Infographic Design

December 19th, 2012 Comments Off on Infographic Design

An infographic should be about a balance between design and information. Creating infographics can be a great promotional tool for you business as long as they are done right.

Infographics should be put together in an appealing way. They should contain helpful information that will make people want to read them. Try to avoid implanting details about your business as direct promotion. Overly promotional infographics will most likely turn off your readers.

Well think of it this way, as a business you are sharing information with clients. This information is shared in order to provide value to them. The only difference is that infographics portray that information graphically. You will need to have a story to tell first, and then show it graphically. It all starts with well organized information, woven together with a “red thread”, what holds the story together.

This is an example of an infographic about lead generation by a company in the industry: leadlogic.ca, an internet marketing company from Toronto.

The information is helpful, it is well organized, and it is appealing. Not sure if this is something that could go viral, but I can see how it would work for informing the company’s prospects.

The information needs to be first organized to tell a story, then work on making sure that is the case. Good infographics are good because there is a lot of work behind them.

Being in the web design industry we come across infographics all the time. Most of them are trash. Regurgitated information with bad graphics.

When it comes to your business, think of infographics as content marketing.

Content marketing with infographics can be an extremely successful method of getting content to your market and ensuring that people not just read what you might be sharing but in addition share it with others. On the web success is all about sharing and interaction. It is essential that you share with others through your content but it can also be important that you learn from the others. Your story is essential and theirs can also be essential. Before it is known by you your aim, which can be getting the content on the Internet to ensure that you increase your exposure and boost your professional standing, is going to be met. The more it is worked by you, the more successful you is going to be.
