Introducing Infograms with a Holiday Offer

Another Made-up Word for Webster’s Dictionary: Infogram

As a designer of infographics and Instagram graphics for clients, my idea of mixing the two together was the result of my friend’s stumbling of words during a discussion recently. We were talking about infographics and social media marketing including Instagram, and out of her mouth blurted: INFOGRAM. We laughed at first, but then a light bulb went off! Both are used separately as marketing tools online and on mobile devices, so why not combine them together for a quick way to promote on Instagram? {I owe her one if this takes off!}

The first thought I had was to offer bite-sized infographics because everyone knows I am the Infographic Queen 🙂 No one has done this that I know of. But the more I thought about it, I figured out even more ways to use Infograms {some of you may be already doing this, so just glaze over those parts}.

With an Infogram, you could promote an event with a Save-the-Date or a reminder for it, you could promote a sale or offer for your services or products, you could send out messages to your customers, and the best idea is that you could create snapshots of data from a larger infographic you already have posted on your website – linking the Infogram back to your site for more traffic.

Here are some examples I created from projects I designed for clients, just to show you how it could be done…these are not actual Infograms:

There are a couple of ways to get your Infogram graphic from your desktop computer to Instagram. 1) You can mail it to your mobile device {smart phone or table} and upload through the Instagram app [see guide]. 2) Or the other method is to upload from your desktop computer via BlueStacks, an Android emulator that lets you run Android apps {like Instagram} on your computer. You can use BlueStacks on both Windows and Mac OS X [see further down the guide].

Holiday Offer for New Clients!

I hate to say this but the holidays are one of the best times to market your business, service or product, but in a subliminal way using a holiday theme. Even though we are bombarded with ads and offers, it’s widely accepted among consumers, and well, they are in a shopping mode anyway. So here I am…because I want to share my excitement of this new service, I am offering new clients a holiday special on Infograms. It’s for a limited time only, so you must hurry 🙂 If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Green Beer & Irishmen

In honor of St Patrick’s Day, I thought an infographic would be a fitting way to celebrate with some interesting facts about the Irish culture you may or may not have known. I, for one, didn’t know that Halloween was associated with the Irish; or even for that matter, that St. Patrick was indeed, not Irish, and maybe not even a Saint! There seems to be many legends {true and untrue} about the real St. Patrick. Will the real St. Patrick please stand up 🙂

According to Wikipedia: The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, as well as celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Little is known of Patrick’s early life, though it is known that he was born in Roman Britain in the fourth century, into a wealthy Romano-British family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. At the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken captive to Ireland as a slave. It is believed he was held somewhere on the west coast of Ireland, possibly Mayo, but the exact location is unknown. According to his Confession, he was told by God in a dream to flee from captivity to the coast, where he would board a ship and return to Britain. Upon returning, he quickly joined the Church in Auxerre in Gaul and studied to be a priest.

Here in the States, we recognize, {or celebrate} with prominent displays of the color green, eating Irish food and drinking {green beer}, religious observances, and numerous parades. Amazingly it’s also recognized/celebrated in Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, Switzerland and South Korea! Slainte!! {Cheers!}
