Reduce your bounce rate, improve engagement, and rank higher in search results, without hiring a designer.
For each idea, you wish to communicate, write:
- A headline summarizing the idea.
- Any descriptive text needed to explain the idea.
For example, if you’re creating a data-based infographic:
- Use the statistics as the headline.
- The description as the citation, or an explanation of the importance of the statistic.
Create an account with a tool like Canva, Venngage, or Piktochart.
The tools above are intuitive and allow you to drag-and-drop the elements you want.
Pick the image dimensions. The size depends on the platform you want to use your infographic for:
- 663px x 2000px: Ideal for blog posts.
- 1200px x 628px: Ideal for Facebook.
- 1104px x 736px: Ideal for LinkedIn.
In Canva, for example, the left sidebar has a background icon. Click on it to select a specific image, pattern, or color. Avoid making the background too distracting, and ensure that the copy is readable when placed on top of the background. Choose colors and imagery that are consistent with your brand. When uploading an image, ensure you have permission to use it.
Popular Canva fonts include:
- League Spartan: modern and elegant.
- Julius Sans One: Elegant, great for body text.
- Archivo Black: Condensed, easy to read.
For example, if you have three statistics about performance on an infographic about web design, then they should appear together on the infographic.
Create a grid to organize information into an easily to scan layout.
For each idea you are communicating, associate either a photograph, illustration, or icon to help reinforce the message.
