How to Repurpose Your Blog Content as Infographic - Mention

How to Repurpose Your Blog Content as Infographic - Mention | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Step 1: Trim the fat and create an outline
Step 2: Structure your template
This is the easy part, because you don’t need to be an infographic design wiz in order to produce a solid infographic template. Start out by choosing your favorite infographic generator. In this case, I naturally recommend Venngage, because I’m biased.
Step 3: Outreach and repurpose

What Killed The Infographic? - Co.Design

What Killed The Infographic? - Co.Design | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Infographics, it seems, are a dying breed. Except that in talking to a dozen data visualization experts across the world's top studios, I learned that the story is far more nuanced. Once a playground for independent designers, data visualization has evolved into something more mature, corporate, and honest about its failings. The quirky, experimental infographics that once peppered the Internet may be disappearing. But that's only because data visualization, as a medium, has finally grown up and gotten a job.
Just a few years ago, data visualization designers had to custom-code and design their projects—an exhaustive process which required building each visual like its own app. Today, a slew of new software has made it easier than ever to create data visualizations from scratch. The downside? It has led to more prescriptive design.

Five years ago, data visualizations were designed largely to be viewed on desktop computers. Today, smartphones and tablets represent roughly 50% of the web’s traffic. That’s a huge chunk of Internet mindshare that a sprawling, ambitious data visualization would be wasted on. So now, simple bar graphs, such as the ones you see on the business news site Quartz, often make more sense to publish than deep interactive content.

A dirty little secret about data visualization is that it doesn't always provide as much insight into large datasets as you might hope. The very medium of data-rich infographics might not be right for general consumers.

The Secrets Of A Memorable Infographic - Fast Company

The Secrets Of A Memorable Infographic - Fast Company | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

Excerpt...


"The most memorable visualizations, by far, contained elements that fell under the category of "human recognizable objects." These were images with photographs, body parts, icons—things that people regularly encounter in their daily lives. "Human recognizable objects will instantly make it more memorable," says Doctoral student Michelle Borkin of Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. All but one of the 12 most memorable images in the study had a recognizable component.

 

Beyond that, Borkin and company discovered a few secrets to infographic success. Color was key; visualizations with more than six colors were much more memorable than those with only a few colors or a black-and-white gradient. Visual density—what some of us might call "clutter"—wasn't a bad thing either. In fact, images with a lot going on were significantly more memorable than minimalist approaches. Roundness was another hallmark of memorability (after all, our brains do love curves).

 

On the contrary, basic bar graphs and charts were easy to forget. That surprised Borkin at first, who thought these visualizations might be memorable because people become familiar with them at an early age. Instead, they proved too similar to distinguish, eliciting a high false-alarm rate—meaning study participants thought they'd seen already them when they had not. As Borkin and her collaborators put it: "all the bar charts look alike.""

Does Infographic Marketing Still Work? A Data Driven Answer - QuickSprout

Does Infographic Marketing Still Work? A Data Driven Answer - QuickSprout | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

Excerpt...


Although the data doesn’t look as appealing as it used to, if I were you, I would still continue to leverage infographics for the following 3 reasons:

-- >  They still produce good traffic – unless you are an exceptionally good writer, chances are you are going to generate more traffic from infographics than you will from your blog posts.

-- >  It helps with branding – more people will see your brand, assuming you put your logo on your infographics. This will help increase the amount of direct traffic you receive.

-- >  You’ll get great referral traffic – if it weren’t for infographics, I would have never generated links from sites like Forbes and Huffington Post. Sure, these links may not help boost your rankings as much as they did in the past, but they still drive qualified traffic to your site.

If you want that attention on your marketing message, you’ll have to do more than share a picture surrounded by text. Here are seven steps to creating your first infographic.

#1: Plan Your Story Around Your Objectives

#2: Gather Your Data

#3: Sketch Your Idea

#4: Find Your Inspiration: Whether you have an infographic design in mind or not, it’s a good idea to look at what’s already out there (even if it’s just to ensure your idea is different enough to capture attention).

#6: Create Your Infographic’s Social Preview

#7: Share Your Infographic

4 Free Tools to Create Infographics #Online Marketer's Tool Kit - GetResponse Blog | #TheMarketingTechAlert | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
You don't need to hire a graphic designer to publish great looking infographics - these 4 tools will do the job for you.


Basic/ Condensed...


Canva.com

If you are looking for a cheap (or free) design tool anyone can use effectively – here it is.

In my opinion it’s the most convenient free design tool. The interface is very intuitive and user-friendly, which is combined with a large number of various templates and images.

 

Easel.ly

When you’re just getting started with infographics – which is quite possible if you’re reading this post – this tool will give you great basis for creating your first infographic.

 

infogr.am

Entering the service will take you just seconds – all you have to do is log in using one of your social network profiles. Off you go to your first infographic!

 

Venngage.com

This tool certainly won’t amaze you at first sight – the layout and interface are not as impressive as those of the competitors. Still, it’s worth looking into – you’ll definitely be satisfied with the variation of templates and images to choose from. Pick and mix any images, icons and logos you wish.

Create Killer Infographics on Any Budget - Vocus | #TheMarketingTechAlert

Create Killer Infographics on Any Budget - Vocus | #TheMarketingTechAlert | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Infographics drive traffic, but are very expensive? See how to create infographics on any budget and the proper ways to distribute them for maximum results.


Basic/ Excerpt...


The first option (and probably the most expensive) is to hire a freelance designer to create one for you. Many designers specialize in infographics, or you could find one on a website such as freelancer.com, elance.com, ospring.com or others. Oftentimes on a site such as visual.ly you can see the designer’s name, enabling you to research their past work and see if they fit your vision.

 

The second option of course is to create your own infographics. Enclosed below is a list of sites where you can do this, including the range of fees to use the service.

Canva – free to unknown licensing fee.

Easel.ly – free (currently in beta).

Gliffy – free to $7.99 / month.

iCharts – free to $75 / month.

Infoactive – free (currently in beta).

Infogram – free to $18 / month.

Photoshop – $9.99 / month.

Piktochart - free to $29 / month.

Presenter – free to $22 / month.

Tableau Premium – free to $500 per year.

Venngage – free to $19 / month.
