    Infographics have been around for quite a while now, in terms of the internet, and have stood the test of time. Depending on who you speak to, some people love them and some people aren’t convinced that they are an effective way to communicate information. If you subscribe to the latter school of thought, we hope to show you what a great tool infographics can be, especially when your audience is the APAC market. It’s not easy to grab the attention of online readers. They are bombarded with so much information all the time; it takes something different to catch their eye. Humans are very visual in nature, which is why images and infographics mixed in with text does a much better job when it comes to engagement than just text alone. Infographics are not only more engaging than text alone, it is easy to gauge measurement in specific markets, they are easily scanned, they have the ability to be social and viral, and you can achieve global coverage.

Since we are so visual in nature, our eyes are attracted to images and the smaller chunks of texts are also easier to digest visually. In addition to that, the brain retains images at a much higher rate and for longer than text. If you are trying to get information to your audience and you want them to recognize and retain it, then infographics are a great choice.

    An infographic, in its very nature, has the potential to increase your reach socially and can even go viral. When you post your infographic on your social channels, it becomes something that can be shared and can then increase your reach, build upon your branding, and establish your authority. In addition to that, the added benefit is that it is a commodity that links back to your website.
