2 Tools to Rock Your Visual Content

May 7, 2015

You already know that visuals are crucial when it comes to online content. What you may not be aware of, however, is the fact that there are a host of tools out there just waiting to help you revolutionize the way that your content appears to your readers.

Two of my favorite tools are Piktochart and Visually. Both of these are at the ready to take your visual content to the next level – and beyond. Let’s check out what they can do for you.

Piktochart uses templates to let you create high-level infographics without any significant previous experience in graphic design. This web-based program features HTML Publishing capability, which can generate search-engine-readable infographics with multiple clickable elements. Basically, Piktochart can eliminate the necessity of hiring a professional developer to create engaging graphics that will pull in your readers.

Piktochart makes your information accessible and attractive.

In addition to its HTML Publisher element, Piktochart includes the following features:

  • Video embedding
  • More than 100 infographic templates
  • Chart generator
  • More than 100 fonts
  • Thousands of vector graphics and icons
  • For pro users, the ability to import as many as 200 image files

Getting started with Piktochart is as easy as clicking and dragging.

Piktochart prioritizes simplicity, with intuitive actions and familiar tools that make it easy to find, drag and drop elements onto your online canvas. It’s also easy to import charts, graphs and maps or use Google spreadsheets to bring your data to life.

It’s also easy to share your creations via social media or email a link to a friend or colleague.

Sharing your creation is as easy as a few clicks.

Another great tool at your disposal is Visually, which defines itself as a marketplace for original content. Visually connects content creators and creative teams with those seeking their services. Its content marketplace includes designers, journalists, animators and developers who are all seeking new clients.

Visually connects creators with clients.

 

If you’re seeking someone to help bring your content to life, all you need to do is fill out a simple creative brief in Visually’s cloud-based Project Center. From there, Visually uses your specifications to connect you with a custom-chosen creative team qualified to help you achieve your goals.

Visually’s on-demand creative services include videos, infographics, presentations, social media micro-content, interactive web experiences and eBooks.
