The infographics industry is currently booming as website creators and marketers are now incorporating informative graphics to visualize a great story or visually explain a problem. There are established Infographic companies which will do the research, design and promote at a cost.
 
The Marketing Tech Blog  explains the benefits of using infographics and also gives a comprehensive review of four tools  that will make development of customized infographics more economical, easier to design and publish, and provide reporting modules for distribution and promotion.

 
Why Use infographics?
  • Infographics are easily transportable
  • Infographics attract a lot of attention. The visual display of information with fantastic imagery often catches people where words alone fail. They often go viral because they are so interesting.
  • At present, infographics remain as one of the few ways to game search engines. Simply put – if you provide someone to publish your infographic, you typically ask them to also put a link back to your site with some juicy keyword in it. Voila… a backlink! Backlinks are the gold standard of gaining rank.
