Here are six easy steps to craft pure content marketing gold:

Step 1: Choose your topic, and research your audience.

Before you start writing or gathering data, what specific audience do you want to target? Who would benefit from reading an infographic about the topic you’re considering? Make sure that aspect is crystal clear before committing to an infographic design.

Decide on your call to action early on. Establish the purpose of the infographic before getting too far down the road.

Step 2: Review your data, and consolidate the cream of the crop.
