How to Design Infographics Using Your Own Business Statistics: Best Steps and Strategies

Building infographics is enjoyable if you like design and have an interest in visual communication. There are many sites nowadays that make this process easier by offering infographic templates for free. There are also high quality templates available on membership sites which only require you to pay a low fee every month.

Infographics make it easier to understand information and can be used to demonstrate the steps involved in a process more easily than would be possible with just plain text. For example, you could develop an infographic for the number of people who use Twitter worldwide at particular times of day. You could also do an infographic on the ways in which people across the world enjoy milk.

People in business use infographics for communicating with their clients and sharing information about their own business with potential customers. Some of these charts require data that can only be gathered in house. In order to do this, you will need to find a means of collecting the facts easily.

It should not be difficult for you to gather information from clients who are online or offline, once you make the steps involved in sharing information with you as hassle free as possible.

Face to Face
A simple conversation can provide lots of information. Assign sales representatives in your store with the task of speaking to clients in order to get answers to the questions that your chart will address.

If you don’t have time to have face to face conversations with your clients consider using surveys that they can complete on their own time. Make these as short as possible. In fact, sometimes it is better to break a long survey up into smaller parts that take a couple of minutes than to ask customers to spend a whole block of their time completing a survey.

When you are collecting the information that you will use to design your infographic, make sure that your facts are as accurate as possible. Double check your results using different methods of collecting the facts.
