Infographics have become wildly popular over the years, particularly in the last few years, and here’s a quick fun fact: since COVID, more and more businesses have been tapping into the power of infographics to quickly relay information to their customers, address pain points, solve problems, and more.

If you think about it, infographics are a remarkable tool to supply the intended information: they are easy on the eyes, can be understood with minimal mental effort and allows businesses to quickly, efficiently, and conveniently relay the necessary information to their customers in a succinct manner.

If you’re already using infographics in your business communication, that’s great! If not, here are a few reasons why you absolutely need to start using them to communicate your value proposition this year and beyond:

Get the message across fast and with minimal effort

Pressed for time or resources? Most businesses are. Your staff already has their tasks planned and customers are waiting to be served. If you want to supply your target base with specific information, infographics are the perfect vehicle for that. They present information concisely and in a very visually appealing way. The perfect mix of imagery, maps, illustrations, statistics, bullet points, etc. allow you audience to pinpoint the value proposition with ease, thus, coercing them to click on the call-to-action without second thought.

Variety of formats to experiment with

What kind of information is your audience hungry for? Will they benefit more through data visualisation? Are they the kind of people who would prefer an interactive infographic or one which presents information in a timeline or perhaps list-based format?

There are plenty of options to experiment with and this allows you to target specific audiences which can benefit from your products and services.

Infographics are a social media favourite

Looking to target influencers or industry leaders? Perhaps audience members who hang out or use specific social media channels?

Infographics have a notorious reputation for going viral – target the right channel to post your infographic on and it’s going to get shared over and over again. Just add some widgets and share buttons and watch the magic unfold. Facebook users, for instance, are all too eager to share information based on graphs and charts pertaining to things they care about (such as health or entertainment) while LinkedIn users love sharing content related to finance, career development and business.

The sky’s the limit! The more buzz you create on social media, the more your infographic is likely to reach a much larger audience.

The perfect tool for short attention spans

In today’s heavily digitally driven world, people have limited attention spans. They don’t want to read several lines of text to see the benefit they can have from a specific product or service.

This is where the power of visualisation comes in – infographics are very powerful visual tools that cut out all the noise, allowing the reader to focus only on “what’s in it for me”.
