Infographics can create big impact in a blog post. They can be effective on a website, in news stories or in content marketing materials if well designed. If done right, they should communicate complex information simply. But what if your information and statistics don’t seem that interesting when read? That’s exactly when an infographic may come in handy; they’re attention grabbing, make information look more appealing, and memorable. If you want to try making one of your own, Stat Planet, Hohli, Creately, GapMinder, Wordle, and Inkscape are all free online tools that you can use to get a start on your new infographic. Just remember to keep it simple, have a good design, check your facts, give credit where credit is due, and don’t overdo it.
