5 Great Tools to Create Infographics

Within the last decade, Infographics have become extremely popular!  In fact, from 2010 to 2012 infographic search volumes have increased over 800%.  For those of you that aren't familiar with infographics, they are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly.

Studies have found that 90 percent of the information that we remember is based on visual impact. Combine that information with the fact that we live in a time where 1.5 billion pieces of content, 140 million tweets, 2 million videos are created each day and you can see how infographics could be beneficial to your social media marketing efforts.
