The DIY Guide To Infographics [INFOGRAPHIC]

Let’s face it. Infographics are cool. They can take a lot of information and put it into a format that is often easier to understand and, even more often, just more fun to deal with.

Inofgraphics are rapidly becoming a marketing staple for companies of all sizes. Every business, from the multinational technology giant all the way to the corner ice cream shop, has information they can share with customers and prospects alike that will go a long way to helping that person connect with the business on a more meaningful level.

And, to be honest, people just like pictures. So while many love infographics, not nearly as many know how to make them. That’s why we have put together the DIY Infographic Production Guide infographic. Enough words already! Enjoy!

Owning Your Local Presence Online [INFOGRAPHIC]

One thing that many people forget is that, in many cases, your business ultimately is a local business in the online space. Unless you are a pure online play people expect something more than just the usual e-mail dance to have contact. Many times, I use the example of IBM. Sure it’s a corporate behemoth but if you search for IBM with a local qualifier in Google there is likely to be a place page for a location if it exists in that city. IBM a local company? C’mon! Well, in a way yes.

A leading local Internet authority, Mike Blumenthal, has put together a VERY comprehensive infographic about the local presence and how search and social play together to form it.

What Keywords Fuel Google’s Machine? [Infographic]

Everyone knows that Google practically prints money in Mountain View due to its dominant position in paid search advertising.

Often times though it’s interesting to look into just how this comes about. Wordstream has put together an infographic that does just that called “Where’s Google Making Its Money?”. Here is a taste. Be sure to click through to see the rest of the data.

The End of the Wallet? [Infographic]

Whenever I hear about these kinds of proclamations regarding the end of anything I go back to the bold prediction of the paperless society. Trees still cringe when they hear that one (which begs the question “If we say that to a tree in the forest does it mean it was said?” Think about it.)

Anyway, in our effort to bring you some interesting infographics from around the web we thought we would share this one from G+ (no not that one) via Mashable which looks at the future of the wallet. If smartphones have anything to do with it, it looks bleak for wallets and better for cows (that’s a reference to less leather being used, get it?).

Here is a preview. Be sure to click through to see the rest of the infographic.

Google’s Product Graveyard [Infographic]

This is by no means a prediction about Google+.

In fact, if the initial reviews (which are mixed but with some heavy hitters buying in pretty big) then maybe, just maybe, this list won’t include the latest social effort from the search giant.

For now though, it is interesting to see just how much experimentation the Goog has done and they haven’t been afraid to fail! And to show the continued pace of product flameouts, just this past weekend Realtime Search was shelved (it is supposed to be back we just don’t know when) and now Wonder Wheel meeting a more permanent fate.

This infographic from our friends at Wordstream shows just what kind of product wreckage Google has experienced.

5 Steps to a Killer Linkbait Campaign [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ever wonder what it takes to put together a successful link bait campaign? If you have any experience you probably can tell everyone a few things about unsuccessful ones.

Truth is, linkbait campaigns aren’t easy mainly because the order of the day is to wing it and see what happens. That is usually the most expeditious way to get the campaign done but that doesn’t ensure success. In fact, it keeps the possibility of success of the campaign quite low.

Check out this infographic from our Infographics Channel sponsor Voltier Creative. It’s just 5 straightforward steps. You can do that, right? Happy linkbaiting and be sure to check out Voltier’s capabilities for your infographics needs.
