Beauty isn’t the only thing in the eye of the beholder. Lots of information is in there as well – tons of it, flying in and getting processed extremely fast. So, content creators, do you really need convincing that it’s a good idea to include pictures, graphics and more in your work to help people visualize information?
Probably not. Anyone who spends a decent amount of time online knows that visual content has the power to condense and communicate great quantities of data efficiently. Visual content grabs attention and holds interest – sometimes a video does the trick, other times an infographic. Different projects call for different content. And therein lies the rub.
Too many tools are available for managing too many kinds of content. Tools are separate, expensive. They often present a steep learning curve before getting started, requiring design or coding skills that many of us lack.
The “Swiss Knife of Visual Content”
That’s where Visme comes in handy. Visme is a web application for creating multiple kinds of visual content. It doesn’t require any expertise. It’s meant to be easy to use. And it’s free. (Subscriptions beginning at $5 per month include advanced features such as downloads for working offline, premium widgets and templates, but a regular account lets users begin creating immediately.)
Visme simplifies building infographics, interactive presentations, web banners, product demos and more. Put content up on your website or share it in a variety of formats (PDF, JPG, HTML5, etc.). Attractive templates help the uninitiated get started, while more experienced creators have a blank canvas to work on. In either case, drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to combine materials intuitively.
Infographic and chart widgets convert hard-to-digest numbers and text into visual representations that are more pleasing to the eye and understood more effortlessly. Visme can even turn mind-numbing spreadsheet data into appealing pie charts and graphs in no time at all. A full animation engine sets any object in motion with just a few clicks. Users can also put together more exciting presentations and slide decks with rich images and interactive content, all within Visme’s right panel (Slides tab).
Visme provides creators with thousands of assets to create with (text widgets, shapes, icons, etc.), including Flickr images – a time saving and thoughtful feature. Enliven content with an incredible range of fonts and colors. Add social media buttons to share work online.
Visme facilitates generating visual content smartly, while giving creators as much flexibility to work with as they desire. Founder Payman Taei adds, “At the core, we are a visualization tool, and our mission is to simplify the ability for anyone to easily transform their thoughts and ideas into engaging visual content.”
Inspire and Engage Your Audience
Bloggers, educators, business presenters each can connect with their audience more effectively by using visual content. Whether looking to break up text, clarify concepts, or display figures in order to win over investors during a pitch, Visme gets the job done.
What’s more, Visme is both web and mobile friendly – a versatility that is essential for modern business communication. There’s nothing dumb about Visme. Making what used to be expensive professional services accessible for everyone is indeed something beautiful to behold.
