How to create infographics for social media
Did you know that consumers are 30 times more likely to read an infographic than a piece of text?  They can be a fun and interactive way to visually depict vital information on social media. Infographics can showcase data you’ve collected on a particular  service you offer; highlight statistics on select problems in the community that your organization aims to correct; or explain key areas of impact your organization has affected. This session covers how to create infographics and illustrates how using them on social media can enhance your social media presence and increase engagement. Presented by Rebecca Teaff, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Redstart Creative and Elisa Watson, Print Creative Director of Redstart. **Please note that this session is “Bring your own lunch.”
