|Build an Infographic Easily With Visual.ly Create|
Adding an infographic to a marketing plan is now a breeze for just about anyone – graphic designer or not.
Infographics were once a thing reserved strictly for really great graphic designers. Now, with the release of the Visual.ly Create, anyone can turn stats and facts into beautiful works of art. Well, into pre-made templates. Now there’s no reason you can’t add a little fun to those figures and get attention from your audience in a new way.
At this point Visual.ly is geared for more personal uses; however any pro marketer can make it work for them. Basically, it connects with Facebook and Twitter APIs to collect stats, and then puts them into a pre-made template that you choose. There is also talk about more APIs being added in the future, which will make it easier to generate better statistics. Also, rumor has it that a premium version may become available for brands.
Why an Infographic?
Infographics are a really intriguing and fun way to exhibit information and drive traffic. We’ve touched on the idea of creating an infographic as an element to your social media plan, but with the new Visual.ly self-serve tool, it doesn’t hurt to go over the points again.
Use an infographic to:
- Drives page view to your blog
- Get others to link to your site – and hopefully tell others!
- Gain attention from journalists & other bloggers (you have to send it out first!)
- Gain new followers with social syndication
Some argue that infographics are on their way out. What do you think?
