Choose a story for make an infographic

This part is usually the most difficult. On what should be your infographic? What is the main message you want to convey?. We think this is a process to discover. There are two ways to do this:

Data-based approach: In this case the data you already have and want to tell the story based on that data. Essentially, the data in order to create the story is used. Although it may seem obvious that data to go shaping history must see, we can argue that there are many difficulties with this approach and is often the # 1 mistake when they discuss all make an infographic. When this approach is relevant? When you have a single data set or when you’re part of a team of scientific information found valuable news in your data.

Approach problems / questions: In this approach you must first think about the problem you’re trying to solve or questions you try to respond to your story. This usually requires that you put yourself in the shoes of your readers to find the shocking side of the story, which has the following properties:

Helps or solves a critical problem. For example: Recover your morning

Provides answers / useful and practical solutions to everyday questions. For example: What is the best sleeping position?

Reframes common questions in a different way.

Challenge popular beliefs or way of seeing things. For example: Super bowl ads are not expensive enough.

Give unusual answers to common questions. Example: How colors influence in decision-making?

Upon completion of this step, you should have a theme for the story and some ideas or questions about the direction that will take your infographic. Something like that:

Subject: Young people and the use of social networks.

As a seller, I would like to know how young people are using social networks. I’ve heard that Facebook is not as suitable for young people until they become so big adults. How are compared to other social networks Facebook?

Questions answered: What are the social networks used by young people? Is there any difference between different groups of young people? Is there something unexpected about the behavior of youth and adult behavior in social networks? Snapchat and Instagram are so important among young people? What knowledge can earn sellers with this information?

If you do not have many followers and are not a big brand, you will be limited by applying most of these methods, but you really commit to make an effort to overcome it. Committing is really necessary. And it works but it does as usually you expect it. You have to go slowly. From the bottom of the pyramid and go up.
