The benefits of Data Visualisation, or Infographic, Marketing are huge… when done right
Google wants high quality content. The social media world wants high quality content on trending topics. You need to provide both to benefit from the increased importance of social signals in the Google algorithm, and to communicate your message and brand in a way that actually gets noticed.
Infographic marketing helps you achieve this.
“Infographics” are simply visualized data. They’re not new in any way – in fact, they’ve been around since cave drawings first appeared in the stone ages 🙂 – but they’ve become a popular online marketing tool since around 2010.
The benefits of a properly strategised and executed infographic marketing plan are:
- They can go viral and create masses of backlinks that Google love, which will increase your site authority, rankings and traffic
- They can help increase conversion rates on your landing pages
Why are they so good at doing this?
- We like pictures more than words
- We like sharing cool, funny, interesting images
- We retain data better in visual form
- The act of sharing helps us remember brands
- People who share great content produced by you are predisposed to give you a quality link in return.
It takes us an average time of 10 man-hours to do the basic work required for a typical infographic campaign.
Infographic SEO Case Study
Here’s a case study of an infographic we produced in December 2012 called “Fuel Poverty in the UK”
The following social signals were generated in less than 3 weeks, all of which in turn linked back to the client homepage.
6 Facebook Likes
3 Google +1s
We then found three people who had embedded the infographic on their website who we outreached to and obtained links back to the client website. One of those links was from a site with Page Rank 4. Google gold dust.
