Turning Written Content into Graphics

Turn Your Words into Images

You’ve probably noticed that the web has become a whole lot more visual these days. Whether it’s videos, photos or graphics… images are everywhere. They’re on websites, Facebook, Twitter and just about everywhere else you go online.

While a picture by itself can be worth a thousand words, a content-based graphic can also have a big impact. Graphics can strengthen the power of your written message and they’re also readily shared by others – making your content go even further…

A few ways to incorporate written content into graphics:

- Add inspiring, humorous or thought-provoking quotes on top of a relevant image. We’ve all seen these floating around and they’ve certainly made us think, chuckle or otherwise added brightness to our day.

Quotation Graphic

- Create an infographic that shows a process, timeline or ideas. Information in visual form is often easier to absorb.

Infographic Sample

- Add eye-opening statistics in your subject area and include a relevant image. For example, if you’re trying to spread nutrition  awareness, you could find some pretty staggering statistics about obesity and illness, and share them through imagery.

Statistics Example

- Create a series of tips graphics with a single tip per graphic. For example, you could make 5 graphics that each include a rose gardening tip and an awe-inspiring photo.

Gathering information for your graphics:

Quotations

It’s relatively easy to find quotations online. Try sites like quotegarden.com, quoteland.com and quotationspage.com, or just Google the type of quote you’re looking for. For example search for something like “quotes about mothers” and you’ll likely find what you’re looking for.

Statistics

There are plenty of statistics resources around. Government websites are always a good first stop and there are plenty of independent research companies in a variety of subject areas. As a starting point, check out fedstats.gov (USA), statscan.gc.ca (Canada) or  statistics.gov.uk (UK). The Yahoo Directory also lists worldwide government statistics resources.

Getting Graphics Done

If you’re halfway decent with a photo editor, you can probably make your own graphics. If you need something more complex or you don’t know a photo editor from an HTML editor, you might need some help. ;-)

Or try Nicole and Melissa’s Social Graphics Pro – it’s very easy to use. Alice has posted a step-by-step tutorial on how the software works, so definitely check that out.

We also have a lot of fun playing with a tool called Box Shot King. Alice used it to create the screen capture image of Social Graphics Pro above. You can do ecovers, software boxes, DVD boxes, tablet screens and a bunch of other cool stuff. You can even create sneak peeks of your reports and information products by creating an open book effect like the image below.

Start experimenting with your images. Post them to social media and your website to gauge your audience’s reaction. What do they like the best? What do they share the most? Make sure when you post them on your website you also include the copy-and-paste code, so they can post the images onto their own websites too.
