Helpful Resources for Building Infographics

An infographic allows you to easily recycle information and present it in a whole new way; visually appealing content is also far more sharable, but the cost of working with a graphic designer can be prohibitive. Fortunately, there are tools that make infographic creation not only accessible, but fast and easy as well. Here is a quick roundup of our go-to tools for creating infographics readers can’t resist:

Piktochart

Featuring easy to use templates and a library of images, Piktochart makes it easy to pull together a compelling infographic in a short amount of time. While this site does have a variety of premade infographic tools, it can be used for presentations, social media images and other applications as well. Piktochart has a free and paid version; try the free first to test it out and upgrade if needed.

Canva

This free and easy to use site makes infographics simple. With Canva, you can either incorporate your own logo and images or choose from a selection of ready-made icons. While there is a charge for some images, many are free. Simply choose a layout and edit to make it your own. Once complete, the infographic may be downloaded and used as you like. You can get a membership for more tools and images, but try the free version first, it might have everything you need for your piece.

Easel.ly

Unlike some of the other sites on our list, Easel.ly focuses strictly on infographics; they have an abundance of templates to choose form and an easy, click and place interface. They are also one of the few sites that do not require you to make an account to create infographics. Easel.ly is free, but premium templates and features are available for a small annual fee.

Infogr.am

Create easy to read, easy to share infographics in minutes with this easy to use and innovative platform. While Infogr.am does have some free options, most content is premium, with rates starting at $19 per month. Tools and templates are high quality, though and may be worth the investment if your prospects really respond to infographics and visual content.

Zanifesto

You’ll have to make an account to get started with this creator, but it is free to do so. While Zanifesto does not have the same amount of templates as the other sites on this list, they do have some very unique and innovative offering. It’s well worth a look if you want something a little different for your brand.

Each of the above tools has its own style of interface and dashboard and a different group of free images and icons. Test out each of the listed sites to see which one meets the unique demands of your prospects and your brand and then start serving up visually appealing content your followers won’t be able to resist.
