    Really love this and how you use infographics to
    emphasize your point! Makes me want to use infographics so much more

    • That’s great to hear. Thanks for commenting.

    • Yeah I definitely agree with that! It’s why I often stop by now. Leading by example instead of just writing it.

      Infographics are never a miss, although they have taken some flak in the SEO community for widespread dilution at least in the online marketing industry. When there’s a monetized gain it’s always easy to see this happen when scaling strategies over quality standards becomes the focus.

      That’s why there’s content marketers to drive the value that users need. There’s definitely something to be said about the visual finesse adding images and customized graphics brings to the experience!
