Today we are going to learn on creating infographics online using piktochart infographic template. But before we directly jump to the main topic, we need to understand the power of infographic.
What is an infographic?
Infographic is a visual representation of content. Using interactive images, icons and text create stunning graphics with less content information. According to a case study, by creating infographics it attracts more visitors than a content information.
For example, if you read the story about Mark Zuckerberg founder of facebook in the form of content it would be less appealing. But if you check this infographic about Mark Zuckerberg you will easily get all the information. Also, you won’t be bored because of great visual presentation of infographic.
