10 Tools to Create Beautiful Infographics and Visualize Data - noupe

10 Tools to Create Beautiful Infographics and Visualize Data - noupe | Social Media in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

They used to say content is king. But what really makes up content? Gone are the days when “content” meant purely text. Today, if you want to engage and enchant your customers, your content must have some visual cues. The human brain processes visual information much quicker than text. And with web 2.0 visuals like infographics, you can convey complex, boring data in a meaningful manner. Although infographics make things simpler, it can be time-consuming to create them. Here is a list of my top 10 tools to create your own beautiful infographics and more visual content (no Photoshop required!).

18 Infographics that You Can Actually Learn From

18 Infographics that You Can Actually Learn From | Social Media in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it
While today’s infographics often form a complex narrative and include a series of information displays, they still need certain core attributes.

What are the secrets to these useful, graceful infographics?

While today’s infographics often form a complex narrative and include a series of stats, charts, and graphs, they still need certain core attributes, and both the most simple data visualizations and the components of a complex infographic can help us to see best practices. Great infographics offer your audience a compelling visual experience that’s as simple as possible, and is organized in a visual hierarchy.

Though few infographics hit the mark across the board, there’s a teachable point stashed in each example — whether the infographic includes a textual narrative or a bare bones map. Let’s set out to see what lessons these infographics illustrate for us.

Infographics are a great way to make information visible. I love that they create a snapshot of basic facts and ideas. We can use them to create much larger narratives in our classrooms. Getting students to create them is a good way to demonstrate understanding and make connections between ideas.

I am adding this to my seminar resources. Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.

The Anatomy of a Highly Shareable Infographic

The Anatomy of a Highly Shareable Infographic | Social Media in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it
Make sure your infographics don't fall flat. Learn what essential elements you need to increasing sharing.

The hard truth about creating content online is the amount of time you put into it isn't always proportional to what you get out of it. We all hope that everything we do is a grand slam resulting in traffic, leads, and reporters clamoring to talk to you. 

But that's not always what happens.

Luckily, there are few things we can do to infographics to hedge our bets a bit. So, we put together the following infographic on making highly shareable infographics -- helping you rake in more views and conversion opportunities. Follow these tips, and your infographic will be much more likely to get shared.

7 Infographics: Kickstarter Facts, Figures & Statistics

7 Infographics:  Kickstarter Facts, Figures & Statistics | Social Media in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

Crowdfunding is on the rise, and Kickstarter is leading the pack. Not only is the trend increasing but, it I’ve noticed that the word “kickstart” has replaced some of the actual terms used when referring to other areas of crowdfunding.


Kickstarter Stats:

  • over 5 million daily visitors
  • 3700 ongoing projects funded
  • $18 Million of funding
  • Multiple projects cross the $1 million threshold
  • Film and Video, Games, Music, and Technology are the largest Categories

In my latest book on business credit it discusses the value of crowd-funding and Indigogo as they will fund anything unlike Kickstarter that specializes in Media oriented endeavors.
Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, September 23, 2013 10:21 AM
Good insight from Iron Dane Richards. Easier to create a sure takeaway from Indigogo too since they will let campaigns increase the house take and walk away with something where Kickstarter is all or nothing. Either the campaign meets its goals or it gets nothing. 42% of the campaigns on Kickstarter meet their goals and most campaigns are funded at $10,000 or below.

Nonprofits are also looking to crowdfunding -- but it has a dark underbelly as well.

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...
