Our Infographic Heroes of 2017

Avatar for administrator administrator 27th December 2017 0 Comments

As you may have noticed infographics are more than just pretty pictures, they have words too, a delightful combination that is making a significant impact across the digital marketing scene. Whether our graphic designers like it or not, the rise (and rise) of infographics is something that businesses can’t ignore.

These excellent marketing tools, used across the likes of so many content marketing and social media campaigns in the last year or so, have the stats to back up claims of better brand awareness, increased traffic and improved search engine optimisation too. Even scientists are in on it, with eye tracking studies proving that browsers pay closer attention to these information carrying images. Across social networks, infographics are liked and shared three times more than any other type of content. Essential tasks like presenting wayfinding information have also been made easier with infographics with people following directions with text and illustrations seeing 323% better results than those who don’t.

Whatever your reason for calling on the power of infographics, one thing’s for certain, modern day internet users are changing their content consumption behaviour. With 90% of information that comes into the brain visual, infographic use is something of a natural progression. Infographics aren’t just relied on by big brands either, your small business marketing campaign can be transformed with some carefully created snippets of content, an impactive topic and title, and not to mention some decent design. Crafting your own however isn’t a walk in the park, that’s where these inspirational infographics come in handy. Hail the heroes of infographics…
