Taking Advantage of Infographic Appeal

The use of information graphics or infographics is gaining more and more appeal as an online communication tool.  The idea revolves around using a visual or graphic representation of data or information.  In the technology driven world we live in, businesses are looking for more and better ways of being noticed.  Because infographics utilize writing, pictures, design, and even analysis they can more easily communicate ideas that might be difficult or complex in a format that more people can connect with.

Humans Are Highly Visual High quality text content is still very critical in today’s world; however, pictures or graphics have always been an attention getter.  From the youngest age people seem to be drawn to pictures.  This is why a child’s first book is a picture book.  Adults also notice pictures and graphics more quickly than they notice words.  In fact, only about 10% of the information most people encounter on a daily basis is in textual format, with the rest being in image form.  Making your website highly appealing visually allows you to utilize the...

Use the Internet and books; if the article calls for it, secure an expert opinion. Solid research will help you develop a solid article. Give your ideas time to form Not all writers have the luxury of time, but if you do, use it to your advantage. Allow ideas for your topic to bounce around your mind for a day or so after you have wrapped up most of your research. That extra time...

We would love to see other examples of comics and link building you have used or you have found being used. Add any good finds to the comments below.
