Infographics to the Rescue: Can they make complex issues simpler?
They Help Make Content More Engaging
Infographics can be used to make content more engaging for the brand. They help people understand the brand's message more quickly and with less effort. Infographics also provide a visual representation that helps people remember information better than text-based content.
Several research studies have been carried out to examine how infographics appeal to us because we are visual creatures. One study found that infographics were viewed as more trustworthy because they were seen as objective rather than subjective, like text-based content.
Example: Animation – either as an animated gif or video helps to simplify complex information:
Leaves a Lasting, More Memorable Effect
An infographic is a powerful tool that can leave a lasting impression on customers. It effectively engages your audience and makes them feel like they are part of the story. Infographics are a great way to tell stories engagingly, making it easy for people to remember them.
Examples: The aim is to show complex data – that would take pages to describe – in one single graphic using proportionality:
No Information Overload
Many people find it challenging to filter through all the information available online. This can lead to information overload and confusion. Infographics help by providing a visual representation of all the available data. Infographics are not just about the aesthetics of the design but also about the content. They give an overview of important points and convey them quickly without overwhelming their audience with too much information.
Examples: Showing a complex process as a three-step workflow negating the need for training videos:
Improves SEO and website traffic
The use of infographics not only helps you create original content but also content that relates and associates with your brand. This has a positive impact on your subscribers and followers. The more engaging the content is, the more people would share it and visit it, this will rank you in a higher position in Google’s algorithm, and likewise, the more traffic will be generated.
Examples: Using a widely understood visual element to illustrate the impact of an alternative solution:
Can make you go viral
Infographics can be used in many different ways – they can be used as a website banner, Facebook ad banner, Instagram post and more.
