Due to the growing trend in using InfoGraphics on social platforms, I wanted to try my hand at one. My friend, Tiffany Dow, made hers using Piktochart and I thought it looked pretty sharp.
As a result of her newly made InfoGraphic, I visited Piktochart. Moments later, I was thoroughly disgusted and gave up to make one in Photoshop. Here’s what I finished:
Where Did I Get the Information?
I used bits and pieces of an article I wrote last year. This is something I’m constantly squawking about – repurposing your articles into other formats.
Since the article had 5 bullet points, which shared an easy plan to get started with article marketing, I used them for the main portion of the InfoGraphic above.
The lower 2 sections, I just added off the top of my head. I used Pixabay.com for free images and pieced it all together.
Can Anybody Do This?
Sure! Why not? All it will take is a little bit of time to sit down and play with a graphics program.
Why not try your hand at one of the many InfoGraphic websites? There are services popping up all the time and quite a few to choose from.
If you’re graphically challenged, hire a graphic designer to help you recycle your articles and turn them into graphical tools to advertise your business.
Can I Hire You?
The thought is warming but I must decline. I want to do more writing and teaching through my workshop (more than anything) and unable to offer a graphic service – sorry!
Though, you can search Google for “InfoGraphic Designer” and see what comes up. I would think there’s plenty to choose from by now.:)
Why Use InfoGraphics?
FREE advertising never put a dent in anyone’s budget! Take advantage of it while they’re still popular. You never know when a commodity becomes short-lived.
If you want a way to spread your domain name far and wide – use InfoGraphics and encourage your friends and followers to pass them around.
While your graphic doesn’t need to be extravagant, you do want to include a good mix of information and graphics. Leave some white space so your piece doesn’t become cluttered.
Add your domain name and share it on social media sites. You never know – your next InfoGraphic could turn into a whirlwind of traffic!
Now it’s your turn. Do you use InfoGraphics to advertise your business? Leave a comment below and let me know!
Thanks for reading!
