When it comes to social media, we all know visuals works wonders! It’s never too bad to keep on experimenting with your content once in a while with visuals and infographic is also one of the option to represent your data visually. With infographics you can not only simplify your data in more visual way but also attract readers. But all of us are not designers who can create those kind of designs! So here is my option to create homemade simple infographics to add variety and depth to your content!
#1 Organize your content
Whatever data you have, sort it out, compress it, make it more cleaner and simpler. Divide it into specified sections in rough.
#2 Creates a story
The best thing about Infographics is that they can be understood easily. Like stories are easier way to make people understand something in real life, infographics telling a story or connecting data with help of story will defiantly help the readers to understand and connect with it easily.
#3 Content placement
Infographics are way of communicating numeric data in a visual manner. Hence the topic of what you are going to represent in infographic is very essential. It is the summery and needs to be attractive and interesting. Header should be self explanatory, if not then you can add a sub header to explain the header story. Do add your company logo for branding. In footer you can add references links, your company address, links
#4 Creation tools
There are plenty of creation tools like canva, Picmonkey, ease.ly, photoshop elements ,etc. Try them out to know which one works for you better. I do recommend canva as it is easy to use and has variety of vectors to work with. The end result is also very professional and visually appealing.
Distribution is very essential for content to work on social media. Publish the infographic on blog by writing a blog about it, set up an embed code of it and promote it on all social media channels.
Start with small data infographics, and as you keep on creating, you will sure get a hang of it and be an expert!
