The Pros and Cons of Using infographics

Now that you got what you came for, here are the pros and cons of using infographics for your business.

We use infographics every chance we get. They convey authority and trustworthiness, while making complicated information easy to understand and digest.

Let’s start with the cons, just to be different… so the cons and pros!

Cons

Don’t get me wrong, infographics are great, but there are definitely cons that we can’t ignore.

Design

It’s easy to make a bad infographic especially if you have no design experience. Luckily for you, we have 10 templates above that you can use so you don’t have to learn how to design from scratch!

Cost

If you lack design experience, paying for someone to make one for you can be costly. We’ve had clients pay in the thousands for a few infographics. We have a secret weapon though, if you need a ton of custom graphics and illustrations, we use a company called Design Pickle to handle most of that for us!

Is it necessary? 

Does what you’re talking about require an infographic? We see a lot of infographics out in the wild that just don’t need to exist. Infographics are typically used for conveying data or information in an easy to understand fashion.

Too Much Information

When does it stop being an infographic and start being a blog post in jpg format? Like I’ve mentioned, the purpose is to distill information in an easy to understand way. If you’re not able to do that, you may need to create several graphics to get your point across. (There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s actually a great strategy!) For example, check out how we broke these Gen Z Social Media Stats into multiple infographics.

Pros

Now that we’re done hating on infographics, let’s talk about how beneficial they can be to your business.

Improve trust and credibility

Would a business really put in all that time, effort, and money, to create something if they weren’t a legitimate operation? All jokes aside, a good infographic can help people understand the solution to the problem that you’re solving.

They break up longer blog posts

Infographics are a great way to break up longer blog posts. If you’re like me and you see a giant wall of text when you get to a page, you tend to find a page that presents the information a little bit better.

Give me the highlights!

Speaking of blog posts including an infographic with the highlights will make your content so much easier to consume. Not everyone needs the nitty gritty. For example, did you read what I wrote under the 10th template on this post? Or did you just look for what you wanted?

Pinterest

With over 450 million monthly users, this platform is severely underused. (Okay, so that sentence might not make sense, so let me explain) Although they have a ton of users, most small businesses are not using Pinterest as a marketing tool because they think it’s for recipes and wedding planning. Well, that’s not the case. Think of Pinterest as a search engine. You probably went to Pinterest to look up “pros and cons infographics!”.. You did, didn’t you?

Anyway, it’s a great platform to use if you have quality infographics.

Shareability

People are much more likely to share an infographic with a friend, colleague, or partner than to share an in-depth, long form blog post; especially if it provides them with highlights that support their point of view.

Get featured! (And linked!)

A benefit that doesn’t get talked about enough when it comes to infographics is the SEO benefit. Other websites will use your infographic and attribute it (link it) back to your website, which will help your website rank higher on search engines.

Infographic FAQs

Still have more questions? We’re here to help!

Don’t see your question below? Contact us and we’ll add it in!

Can I create an infographic if I’m not a designer?

Absolutely! Yes! Scroll back up and you’ll find 10 templates you can use for free. All you need to do is create a free account on Canva to get started!

Are infographics still effective?

Good ones are, yes! If you can’t read your entire infographic in under a minute, you may be including too much information. Try to get right to the point. What is it that you’re trying to achieve with the information you’re presenting?

Good vs. Bad infographics

If it’s good, you probably won’t notice how good it is, but if it’s bad, you’ll know right away. Haha

A good infographic will allow people to consume information and easily understand it. A bad infographic on the other hand will cause confusion because it has too much information. Remember, your infographic should be highlights, not a blog post.

How can I make an infographic?

Easily! Services like Canva have made it so easy for non-designers to create beautiful graphics.

If you have design experience, apps like Photoshop, illustrator, or Indesign will be your best friend!

How long should an infographic be?

Remember what I said about highlights? You shouldn’t go into detail about every point. If a 12 year old can read and understand it in less than a minute, you’ll be good to go!

How much does an infographic cost?

If you’re using the free templates linked above, it will only cost you your time! However, if you’re hiring a professional designer, it can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars!

Are infographics good for SEO?

Yes! They are an incredible way to get links to your website from other websites. This helps increase your website trust and authority and raises your domain authority score as well. They also keep people on your website longer, which is another ranking factor.

Final Thoughts: Pros and Cons Infographics

Infographics are a great way to legitimize your business, increase trust, credibility and website traffic. They also help you break up longer pieces of content and showcase its highlights.

If you take a look through our blog, you’ll see a ton of infographics. If a digital marketing agency sees value in them, you should too!
