With 90% of the information that's transmitted to our brains being visual, it makes sense that image-based formats like infographics work so well, and infographics often have an advantage over other content types due to the way they're able to convey a lot of data in a quick and easily digestible way. Infographics also generate more traffic, shares and backlinks - if you've not considered utilizing infographics, it may be time to give them some thought.
