4 Visual Content Tools to Help You Stand Out Visually

social media toolsDo you want to create more interesting visual content?

Are you looking for new ways to present your message?

Today’s marketers are using visual content to capture their readers’ interest and attention.

In this article I’ll show you four of the best free tools you can use to create strong visual content for social media.

Why Stand-Out Visual Content?

All of those people we’re trying to reach–fans, followers, customers–overlap with the same people our competitors are trying to reach. All of us are clamoring to have our content noticed over everyone else’s.

Text alone is hollow. It doesn’t attract much interest and it’s easily overlooked. Visual content has become one of the most important ways to bring attention to your social marketing efforts.

#1: Design Infographics

Right now, infographics are the hot thing. They’ve taken content marketing by storm because they bring data to life. There’s no doubt they’re eye-catching.

The problem is that creating infographics can be a headache if you’ve never done it before. Until now. Instead of buying the right software and hiring an expensive graphic designer, you have a number of free and affordable options.

I’ve tested many of them and Easelly is my favorite because it’s so easy to use (a nice reflection of its name).

How to Create an Infographic That Boosts Social Shares and Leads

social media how toAre you considering infographics for your marketing?

Can you effectively communicate visually?

Infographics are powerful ways to get attention.

In this article, you’ll discover how to craft infographics that are widely shared.

Why Infographics?

Modern humans have been around for about 200,000 years and for almost all of that time (97%, to be precise), we’ve survived by reading just the visual imagery around us.

We didn’t start using alphabets until about 5500 years ago.

The fact is, our evolving brains continue to interpret images faster than text. What that means for brands is visual storytelling is essential to delivering highly effective messages.

Because of that, infographics, a hybrid of images and text, have become a great fit for social media marketing. They combine charts, diagrams, pictures and stylized text into a visually pleasing package.
