Impactful Infographics with Piktochart

Do you feel like you’ve been seeing eye-catching infographics everywhere and wonder how you can produce one too?   Do you not have the $700+ needed to hire a graphic designer to produce one for you?  Are you not a graphic designer but secretly wish you were?  If you answered “yes” to even one of these questions, then you need to check out Piktochart.

Piktochart is an online platform that allows you to create your own infographic from their pre-designed templates.  Unlike other infographic services out there, the templates are easy to customize with your own colors, images, charts, etc. with Piktochart’s WYSIWYG editor.

Piktochart offers a free version that includes access to 7 basic templates.  While not a huge range to choose from, they are each easy-to-use, customizable, and will get you started on the road to creating impactful infographics.  Once you get going, you can upgrade to their PRO version (currently $29 per month/$169 per year) which includes about 100 additional templates and removes the Piktochart watermark from the infographic.  After creating your infographic, you can export it as a jpeg, png or export to HTML and embed it in a webpage.

And voilà, your own, self-produced infographic to show off to friends and colleagues!
