Free Infographic Tools

Attributed to Mark Twain via Benjamin Disraeli The phrase takes a life of its own with Visual Infographics that almost any marketer can use due to the number of tools that are out there in the marketplace today.

I am a fan of a picture tells the story much better than words but this is no more important than when one looks at infographics. My fave Web 2.0 communicator @AmberMac just did a great post on Fast Company on a feature that i would encourage you to bookmark or subscribe to just because of the quality of the content. It discusses Infographics and follows on an interview with Nicholas Felton

AmberMac – Thoughtfullness and Prolific Valuable Content

I don’t miss an item that this prolific author and speaker produces because of the tremendous value she delivers. And delivers, and delivers. She has a bestselling book that came out last summer Power Friending: Demystifying Social Media to Grow Your Business as well as produces a technology column for Toronto’s Globe and Mail, has a video podcast Command-N she hosts which is now into over 230 episodes with her brother Jeff MacArthur produced and shot by fiancee Christopher Dick.

If that were not enough you can also find her on Twit.Tv weekly with Sarah Lane on The Social Hour as well as Canadian television show Webnation and a commentator on Canada’s CTV Television network. Add on that she is a mother of a toddler and a sought after consultant with her firm mgimedia.ca and keynote speaker around the world and she is a busy,busy person.

I am an unabashed fanboy but herein I sense is the real magic that I appreciate so much about Amber. She so willingly shares this information to assist others to grow and succeed in all of her forums.

Having just listened to Mitch Joel, on his Six Pixels of Separation podcast with Tim Sanders, author of Today We Are Rich: Harnessing the Power of Total Confidence while just having read the latest effort from Seth Godin’s Domino project the book,Do the Work” by Steven Pressfield which helps people get it going and moves them, I think of this sharing culture I see out there and encourage readers to embrace it as one of the new pathways to contemporary lifelong learning.

Who knows what you might be able to convey using some of the new infographic tools.
