In an infographic by MPA@UNC, they profile several successful grassroots and nonprofit campaigns, explain tactics that increase the impact of a message, and explore emerging trends in charitable giving and volunteering.

Infographics are becoming a popular tool that marketers use to capture the attention of their target audiences. You’ve seen them shared on blogs and social media sites -- and their visual appeal is indisputable. The only question is, how do you actually make one?
With PowerPoint! We created three customizable infographic templates to help you start building these visual wonders.
This easy-to-use PowerPoint template comes with three types of infographics:
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.
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 is very easy to use, with six templates, and - infographics aside - it is also great for creating standalone charts.
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 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.
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.
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.......
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.

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. These are great design kits for you to start fiddling around and build your own infographics.
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?
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.
Many marketers are now adding content curation— the act of finding, organizing and sharing online content to engage customers and prospects—to their job descriptions.

What’s your curation type? Match your own personality to the qualities below so you can embrace your inner curator.
