Stuck for content ideas? Numbers and visuals can often be a good place to start.
It’s no secret that audiences respond well to both statistics and visuals.
When you combine stats or numbers into an information graphic it’s a potent combination that can draw real attention for your business.
Information graphics often feature a strategic arrangement of icons, illustrations, numbers, and copy to help you communicate a large amount of information in a small space.
But you can also create – or source – illustrations that can be customized along with a given statistic. “… sometimes it takes a clever combination of words and pictures to tell a story quickly, concisely and in an entertaining fashion.” —Creative Blow
“Infographics” have certainly become popular across the web for content marketing, article support, gated content, and SEO efforts.
Why have infographics and illustrations become so popular? Facts and statistics that might be less than exciting within a longer article can suddenly be made much more interesting when represented visually.
Because the data can be “seen” rather than just “read” it becomes more compelling and requires less commitment on the part of the reader. “… people love facts, figures and statistics. Add some compelling images and graphics and …”voila“, you have addictive content!” —Jeff Bullas
Our team has been cleverly devising information graphics for years. Workflow illustrations are a form of infographic we regularly use to help simplify complex software, hardware, and network processes for brochures, videos, web sites, presentations, and more. Also consider that infographics have become quite effective pieces of gated content lately.
Don’t forget, you can also enhance your white papers or gated content with images, illustrations, and information graphics as needed.
