Marketing Your Website

What's New ?
Take Advantage of Infographics

Infographics are everywhere these days. Infographics are graphic charts and designs that help present information in a friendly manner. They are intended to present data quickly and concisely. Infographics can also help get a point across or tell a story. Media outlets have used Infographics for years, recently these graphic representations have become mainstream.

It is not uncommon to see Infographics displayed prominently on Social media sites. The ability to spread, explain, and display statistics and raw data quickly lend itself to social outlets. But Infographics are not a fad, they have been used for serious news for decades. Weather is the first place that comes to mind. Almost any seven-day forecast is an example of an Infographic.

In the past, if you did not possess design and layout skills an infographic could be time prohibitive to create and assemble. New tools make it much easier to design, create and display infographics. Online tools can help you layout and design your own graphics masterpiece in a reasonable amount of time.

I took a half hour, signed up, learned the basics, then created an infographic of my own on a website called canva.com . Granted, I have several years experience using graphic design tools and online administrative tools, and to be fair I could create the same infographic in Photoshop. However, I found the tools and layout of canva.com to be easy to use and intuitive. There are free and paid options so watch what you select for your infographic. You can see the one I created here, it is titled, Looking For Ways To Promote Your Website? (Once the infographic is displayed, You can click the little button in the lower right corner that looks like a television if you want to see a larger view of the infographic.)

befunky or Google Charts may be other options for online infographic creation.

Infographics can be used as posters, in blog's, sales presentations, ads and more. Give it a try.

1. Some times I dress up in a duck costume and throw bread at people and scream “HOW DO YOU LIKE IT?!?!?!”
2. Just changed my Facebook name to ‘No one’ so when I see stupid posts I can click like and it will say ‘No one likes this’.
3. It’s amazing how potatoes give us chips, fries and vodka. Other vegetables seriously need to get their act together!

4. Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.
My doctor told me that I needed to watch my drinking. I feel funny standing in front of the mirror on Friday nights.
6. Go to the pet store and buy birdseed then ask the clerk how long will it take for the birds to grow.
So what if I don't know what "Armageddon" means? It's not the end of the world.
8. I own the world's worst thesaurus. Not only is it awful, it's awful.
9. If I got 50 cents for every failed math exam, I’d have $ 6.30 now.
10. I'll tell you what I love doing more than anything: trying to pack myself in a small suitcase. I can hardly contain myself.
