10 of the Best UX Infographics - The Usabilla Blog | Design Revolution | Scoop.it
Sometimes, as the old saying goes, pictures really do tell 1000 words. And if that’s the case, what’s better than a picture with 1000 words included on it?

10 Reasons Visual Content Dominates 2014 - The Wishpond Blog

10 Reasons Visual Content Dominates 2014 - The Wishpond Blog | Design Revolution | Scoop.it

10 Reasons Visual Content will Dominate 2014 What marketing strategies will we focus on in 2014? What will we leave behind? This article takes a look at the rise of visual content - and why 2014 will dominate in 2014:

1. 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual. Visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.

2. Videos on landing pages increase average page conversion rates by 86%.

3. Visual content is social-media-ready and social-media-friendly. It’s easily sharable and easily palatable.

4. Businesses who market with infographics grow in traffic an average of 12% more than those who don’t.

5. Posts with visuals receive 94% more page visits and engagement than those without.

6. 60% of consumers are more likely to click on a business whose images appear in search results.

7. Clear, detailed images carry more weight than product information or customer ratings say 67% of consumers.

8. Visuals show your products without telling people about them. This allows viewers to make their own decisions without feeling pressure from your business.

9. Visuals express ideas quickly - in a snapshot. This breaks through the overwhelming clutter of online content.

10. Visuals are becoming easier and easier to create as photo editing tools become more accessible

 

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

I can think of a few more reasons visual marketing will dominate in 2014 including:

* Visuals are cross-cultural and global (don't have to speak english to understand visuals)..

* Mobile LOVES visuals and everything is going mobile 

* Visual marketing is more viral, more "shareable". 
*  Visual marketing is more fun. 

Wow, this post is  sparking a lot of great conversations including one on G+ about images and real estate thanks to Janis Bourgeuta: https://plus.google.com/102639884404823294558/posts/LhoaHP8ChnJ 


And this comment from Monida on Scoop.it:

Grat Monica S Mcfeeters Comment:

This is one of the best reasons for art education. A visually or media illiterate citizen or consumer is very apt to be manipulated or make unwise choices.

From Wikipedia:

 Visual literacy includes in addition the ability to understand visual forms of communication such as body language, pictures, maps, and video.Evolving definitions of literacy often include all the symbol systems relevant to a particular community. Literacy encompasses a complex set of abilities to understand and use the dominant symbol systems of a culture for personal and community development. In a technological society, the concept of literacy is expanding to include the media and electronic text, in addition to reading and writing.

All I can say, is thank goodness for Visuals in content!  I've always been a visual person being a visual learner. Information is easier to retain and comprehend when visuals are employed as it pulls you in.


The article's statistics further supports the importance of visuals. I love visuals!

Implications Of Infograhic Revolution on Website Design

Implications Of Infograhic Revolution on Website Design | Design Revolution | Scoop.it

What does the Infographic Revolution mean for your website design efforts?

* Less is more.

* Get to the point.
* Tease Don't Smother.
* Interactive beats Lectures.
* Colors Matter.
* Design Matters.

Friends @Scoopit are creating the Lean Content Movement and it is a movement web designers should join. Lean sites can still SUCK if they don't deliver a meaningful experience. Think of "meaningful experience" as one of two things:

1. Visitors quickly find what they want.
2. Visitors are intrigued enough to explore.

3. Some combination of 1 and 2.

One common web design error is to SMOTHER visitors instead of teasing them. Designers think great design means sharing everything NOW. Turns out you want poeple to work A LITTLE to find cool things. If we don't work we don't value and until a visitor starts clicky you don't know enough to smother.

What is the most common social stance now? Head down looking at a phone right? We expect and want to be include now. Visitors don't want lectures. They want to be included, to see what their friends thought and to share their take - LET THEM.

Color and Design have and will always matter. Be aware of the social signals your color choices send. Know if your design is clean and easy or complex and confusing (and you want the former :).

Note: The interactive Why Your Brain Craves Infographic seemed the best link for this post (and its fun :).

design company, and editor of the Cool Infographics website, to share some
of his insights from working with and reviewing infographics.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Don't be fooled by infographic naysayers. Yes there are BAD infographics, yet when I tracked the top 10 for my 125,000 views on Scoopit Infographics owned more than half of almost every feed's top 10. Translation - we need to create infographics and other forms of data visualization.

Here are 3 great tips from an Infographic design pro:

* Keep It Clear.
* Be Iconic.
* Know the rules.

Come to think of it those tips apply to pretty much anything we lucky few Internet marketers do :). M

6 Reasons to Visualize Your Data in the Age of Distraction | Design Revolution | Scoop.it

This piece was posted by Loren Sorenson for Hubspot, I selected it because as she says "If you aren’t prepared for the visual content revolution, you may be left in the dust.

 

Not convinced? Let's take a look at exactly how visual contentis positively contributing to marketing strategies -- it may just give you the push you need

 

"Learn why visual content is a critical part of your content creation strategy.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**People remember only 20% of what they read

 

**83% of learning is visual

 

Condenses and Explains Large Amounts of Information

 

**Today, there is too much information on the Internet you have about 3 seconds to catch someone’s eyes so they'll consume your information.

 

Gives Your Brand an Identity

 

**Visual content draws people in, letting viewers better understand your brand's identity

 

Drives User Engagement

 

**If you've ever read a book with a child, you probably know they find pictures more interesting than words; but are adults really that different?
