Why Infographics Make Great Marketing Tools

As infographics become more popular, they’re also drawing a ton of criticism on their quality and accuracy. I love infographics because they provide a visual medium to explain information. Whether or not the information is true is another story… and a poorly researched infographic can draw tons of criticism and hurt the reputation of the company that’s pushing it. All is fair in love and infographics. 🙂

This infographic, Why Infographics Make Great Marketing Tools from UK-based Infographic designers Neo Mammalian Studios, hits on all the right cylinders on what makes infographics work… a visual medium for disseminating data, a growing demand from your audience, and a medium that’s easy to share! It’s the trifecta of content marketing. Learn more on how to leverage and promote your infographics.
