Infographics are a fairly new tool being used across the board for a wide variety of things. These neat little illustrations present data or information in a very visual way, which would often be confusing if presented in any other way. While some of the infographics being produced do a great job of explaining material to readers, some are merely colorful and bright pictures. If you are considering implementing infographics in your content marketing plan, consider a few questions:
- Will the infographic have something relevant to add to the conversation? Creating an infographic just to have one will most likely not have the effect your were searching for. If you have a topic you wish to share with your readers that is complex and requires a more visual explanation, an infographic could be just what you need.
- Can the infographic be reached on various platforms? Having an infographic that is formatted to fit various formats is key. One of the goals of an infographic is to reach the highest number of your audience as possible. In order to ensure your readers are seeing and reading the infographic, make sure it is widely accessible across your different platforms.
- Do you have a good designer? Infographics catch the attention of your readers due to its good design and attention to detail. In order to make sure you have the best infographic possible, be sure you have a wonderful designer who understand your niche publication enough to integrate your values into the infographic.
