Are you looking for a way to enhance readers’ understanding of your blog post content? Infographics are a compact way to condense your post information.
Infographics are just what busy readers trying to navigate through a sea of information need. According to some statistics, 65% of all readers are visual learners. You certainly want to help the majority of all your readers.
Infographics are win-win. They help you too. Making infographics helps you create shareable content. Blog posts with infographics are shared far more often than information without one.
Even OnBlastBlog’s Matt Banner weighed in on the value of infographics. “Write an article and include an infographic within it (people enjoy viewing and sharing these!)…”
In addition to creating shareable content, you are creating pins that the Pinterest crowd likes to share. This means your blog’s message gets shared across the Internet more than it does without the infographic. Now, who doesn’t want more exposure?

Look at the infographic. Can you tell I have modified it? The template was originally about money. I am in the process of adapting it for an upcoming blog post in which I’ve interviewed experts about the secret of blog promotion. I’m using it to group their answers.
You have added abilities at Piktochart of uploading your own photo, changing font size and backgrounds and more. You can add icons and shapes as well.
