How to make an infographic online: five essential free tools | Content Curation: Emerging Career | Scoop.it

Easelly

Easelly allows you to create your own infographics using its ‘Vhemes’, which are infographic templates that you can customise. It does a good line in icons and graphics too.

 

Piktochart

We’ve used Piktochart to create some of our own infographics. It provides you with a choice of six free templates (more are available if you upgrade). Colour themes are easy to change, and you can create charts manually or by uploading CSV files.

 

Infogram

Infogram is very easy to use, with six templates, and - infographics aside - it is also great for creating standalone charts.

 

Creately

Creately is a ‘diagramming’ tool, which can help you to wireframe an infographic before putting it into production. It includes a new real-time collaboration feature, allowing you to work on a design with a colleague or client simultaneously.

 

Visually

Visually has templates that allow you to create infographics based around Twitter or Facebook data. Alternatively, and if you don’t have the time to produce your own infographic, then check out the Visually marketplace. They start from $1,495 and typically take at least 18 days to produce.

Communicators must stay relevant in the digital era of content curation

Communicators must stay relevant in the digital era of content curation | Content Curation: Emerging Career | Scoop.it

Businesses of every configuration are evolving at an alarming rate and the phenomenon is changing the commercial environment just as fast. The breadth of these changes affects many companies, from the emergent role of social media to the morphing nature of content and the access through which corporate and product messages are delivered.

 

Last week, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) brought Shel Holtz, an IABC Fellow and principal of Holtz Communication + Technology, to talk about the future of the communications profession and how one can stay relevant in the digital era. Holtz’s presentation was preceded by a talk on the Philippine digital landscape delivered by Donald Patrick Lim, managing director of MRM Worldwide. Here are a dozen pick-ups from the master class.

 

1. The converging trends in the digital world.

2. Interruption marketing has become less effective.

3. Thinking like a publisher is the rule of the day.

4. Familiarity with the two dimensions of media relations in the Internet age is critical.

5. News reporters will contact a source not by phone but by Facebook.

6. The traditional press release moves to social media news release (SMNR) and engages more people.

7. It’s not information.

8. Community management is all about people and how you move them.

9. Welcome to the “good enough” video era.

10. Hiring the right communicator is key.

11. Outputs, outtakes and outcomes.

12. What’s coming?

Content Curation Best Practices

Content Curation Best Practices | Content Curation: Emerging Career | Scoop.it

The proliferation of the Internet has transformed the way we create, publish and distribute content. Think about the pre-Internet era when companies were at the mercy of content publishers for distribution of content, and where consumers had very few options and meager resources for information gathering.

 

Today, the situation is exactly the opposite. The Internet has made a publisher of each one of us. We now have a problem of plenty – there is too much information available for consumers but it is scattered across the web in different forms, across social networks, and in different languages. And now the new challenge for marketers is to make themselves visible to their consumers in this information deluge.

 

So how does one handle this information overload and how do B2B marketers compete to stay on the top of search results, in this continuous flood of content that will only increase by the day? One new tactic that is gaining popularity in recent years is that of Content Curation.......

4 Simple Tools For Creating An Infographic Resume

4 Simple Tools For Creating An Infographic Resume | Content Curation: Emerging Career | Scoop.it

I've written extensively about this topic.  I'm reviewing these tools in my upcoming book, HireFriday 3.0.   The fact is this: infograpic resumes aren't just for artists, photographers, and musicans anymore.

 

Resume templates, and infographic resume formats are not new.  What is new is that some of the services can now take your LinkedIn Profile and turn it into an infographic in one fell swoop.  

 

It makes sense to check these services out.  If you can leverage all of your social networks to jump start your job search, you absolutely should.

 

I've tested vizualize.me,  re.vu, Kinzaa, Visualize.ly.  Some of these tools are simple to use.  Some are difficult if you don't write code.

 

See my previous post about this.  I recently interviewed the founder of re.vu.  Stay tuned.  In the meantime, subscribe to the HireFriday Daily, this blog, and stay up to date on the latest career search technology.

 

Your career search pal,

Infographics are always fun to read. Making them, it’s something else. True, there are tools you can use to make infographics, or you can opt to create an infographic from scratch but often times there are workarounds that can help you with the ‘graphics’, so you can focus on the ‘info’.

 

We’ve brought together 30 free infographic design elements, vectors and templates to help you with the presentation of your infographic. The visualization of data is made a lot easier when you can play around with these ready-made elements, mostly available in vector and Photoshop format.

The Marketer's Simple Guide to Creating Infographics in PowerPoint [Template] | Content Curation: Emerging Career | Scoop.it

Who doesn't love an infographic? They're pretty. They're educational. They're shareable. And they've played a powerful role in the visual content revolution we marketers have seen take hold recently.

 

So what's the limiting factor stopping many marketers from jumping on board the infographic bandwagon? Design. More specifically, how on earth do you create a flipping infographic?

 

With PowerPoint!

 

Wait, really? Yes, really. Whether you love it or hate it, PowerPoint is an extremely valuable yet underused design tool. That's why I created three different infographic templates in PowerPoint for you to customize and deploy. That's right, you can download this PowerPoint presentation and get access to three different infographic templates. The template itself does include notes that walk you through how to create your infographic, but this blog post will go through it in painstaking detail. So download your infographic template, and follow along with the steps in this post to create your infographic! You'll be shocked at how simple it is.

Gianluca Fiorelli does a good job, after his webinar last week, of reporting what are the key steps, resources and strategies to use to leverage the content curation approach for gaining visibility, followers and extra traffic across social media channels.


In this intro guide he addresses some of the basic questions received by webinar participants last week.


Some good resources for news discovery, but - in my opinion - too little in the way of good examples and what they are characterized by.



Useful as an intro guide for social media content marketers. 7/10
