Infographics For Dummies is a comprehensive guide to creating data visualization with viral appeal. Written by the founder of Infographic World, a New York City based infographic agency, and his top designers, the book focuses on the how-to of data, design, and distribution to create stunning, shareable infographics. Step-by-step instruction allows you to handle data like a pro, while creating eye-catching graphics with programs like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The book walks you through the different types of infographics, explaining why they're so effective, and when they're appropriate. Ninety percent of the information transmitted to your brain is visual, so it's important to tickle the optic nerves to get people excited about your data.
Now you may have heard that integrating infographics and visual content into your marketing strategy is one of the most effective means of boosting audience engagement. Well, first of all, visual content is processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text. But did you know that businesses that make use of infographics in their marketing actually grow in traffic an average of 12% more than those who don't take advantage of using infographics? The day was March 11th, 2015 and the Venngage team, which was at the time only 4 people, were scratching our heads trying to figure out how we could possibly get more online sign-ups and site-traffic. Things were on a decline and we needed to boost your SEO fast. After a year we turned things around and grew our traffic, registrations and revenue by almost 400%. Our blog was a mess and had almost no content on it, and the content we did have was not strategic.
