Ways to Capture your audience attention: the info graphic way

31 Oct

People have a attention span of the gold fish, well at least I do.

One of ways that gather people attention to your information is a nice info graphic, it presents the information in a nice and condensable format that is easy for readers to digest. In addition info graphics are more: persuasive,engaging, and memorable However given that I am not a photoshop master I turned to the Piktochart, to create a snazzy info graphic about how to dress professional.

Piktochart was really easy to use, and I ended up creating a info graphic in about thirty minutes. But here is a step by step guide.

When you enter the editing room there is just a blank space which allows to input your title and choose some different elements to make your graphic unique.

As seen above there is a lot of different option that you can choose from in the background and in the icons. From the icons (in the agriculture section) I found a great little tractor, and decided on a wood grain for my background.

In addition to having great icons and charts they also have a lot of different charts and maps that you can edit to make it even more personalized. For example user can make charts on consummation of corn in the United States (which is grown almost everywhere in the states) or the population of dairy farms per each state.

So this is just a small sample of what you can do with Piktochart. Hopefully this highlighted something that could be easy inserted to social media so that readers are more engaged with agriculture.
