Infographic search volumes have increased over 800% in the last two years. That’s an incredible leap. So what’s the big deal anyways?

Check out why infographics work:

  • They’re easy to understand. The simple layout of infographics makes statistics and data easy to digest, something we can all appreciate. Infographics also pull only the best data and leave behind the fluff.
  • They’re attention grabbers. Infographics are still a fairly novel form of obtaining information, so a catchy headline and some entertaining graphics can grab our attention quicker than a traditional article.
  • They’re shareable. Infographics are easily shareable across a multitude of platforms from Facebook to Pinterest or email to social bookmarking. Their shareability poses a great opportunity to go viral.
