Need An Infographic? Use NEW Visual.ly Marketplace

Need An Infographic? Use NEW Visual.ly Marketplace | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Marty Note
Creative idea from Visual.ly. Visual.ly is creating an infogrpahic marketplace where you can easily commission work. The process is explained in their demo video here: http://youtu.be/7v8lNRZgoHU . 

I love this idea as a creative example of how to own a market by creating a market. By being the aggregator Visual.ly wins. Spoils in this new digital economy go to the platforms and Visual.ly's creative application of that idea creates a new market where creating an infographic is easier.

The other benefit of creating a market will be pricing competition. I was quoted a pretty HUGE sum to create an infographic about a year ago. Pricing should be moderated by competition.

Some are saying the era of the infogrpahic is over killed by over saturation. I disagree. Visual presentation of data is more engaging and easier to share than white papers and reports. One clear trend in 2012 discussed well by Liz Wilson is the visuals are crushing the textuals. Liz's article discusses the 2 big trends of 2012: the rise of curation and visuals.
