Tips to make infographics pop off the page

Follow this guidance to craft stunning visuals that will stand out from the crowd, hook your readers and make messages stick.

Effective communication is about showing instead of telling.

That’s a vital reason why infographics remain one of the sweetest, most enduringly popular content flavors at the internet ice cream buffet. The other big selling point, according to Visme, is that “people who follow directions that include illustrations do 323 percent better than those who follow text-only instructions.”

In other words: Infographics get the clicks, and they make your message stick.

Of course, you’re not the only one hawking infographic wares. You’re competing with millions of content competitors, all of whom are vying for eyeballs, customers, attention and influence. You must create something visually appealing, appetizing and alluring to stand out.
