According to Wikipedia:
“Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.“
So you can save yourself the stress of writing new contents (we all know how time consuming it is) and just follow my little revealed secret.
4 Quick Reasons Why You should use Infographics on Your Blog or Website
- Visual content is more engaging that just words. Photos and video drive more engagement on both blogs and social media sites.
- Infographics are highly shareable. When people share your infographic, your site gains more traffic.
- Content that is presented in a new and original way is more interesting and more likely to receive comments and go viral than plain old text.
- People love infographics.

Just recently i joined Instagram (follow me here to see the most inspiring images from around the world), i was so amazed by the high level of engagement there (over 300%). Out of excitement, i had to tell my friends on facebook who were reluctant to join instagram about my little “success story”.
And when i was chatting with a friend of mine about it, he told me something that was really revealing. In his word ”
That conversion was like a confirmation of an article i read on Neil Patel’s website ( How to Build 100 Quality Links Without Writing Fresh Content ). Indeed humans are visual creatures.
So i was inspired to add a new category (Infographic) on my blog and also publish infographics from time to time since we all want to not only read but also view. So, be expecting this most of the times. Instead boring you with articles of 2000-3000 words, i will just summarize it in an infograhic for your viewing pleasure.
Though, we know that images or infographics consume lots of internet data, people don’t mind as long as your images are inspiring, informative, educative or entertaining.
Your comments are much appreciated. Share with me your experience with infographics or having pictures attached to your posts
