Infographics are an excellent way to market your business. Why? Because visual content can be absorbed 60,000 times faster than written content. If you have an important message you want to get across, an infographic is the best way to do so.

Besides being extremely effective, infographics are also fun! People love sharing them on social media and you may even enjoy making them. I do!

There are several tools out there that make infographics easy to create. The key is finding a solid template to work with. Here are 5 easy tools to create an infographic in 30 minutes or less.
