Tools We Love: Piktochart

tools

When it comes to marketing and running a business, we would be lost without our toolkit! And what kind of tools do we use? The answer is many, many different ones. The cool thing about technology is all the options that are available that make life easier for a busy entrepreneur. From scheduling social media posts to assigning tasks to team members, theres a program out there that is perfect for what we need. We love anything that helps us get things done quickly and efficiently.

Today we’re talking about Piktochart, the graphics program we use for some of our blogging and social media graphics. You can check Piktochart out at www.piktochart.com. They have an awesome free version available that may be powerful enough for your needs. But if you need a little more customization and power, you can upgrade.

Piktochart can be used to create infographics, presentations and even printable graphics. They offer really impressive pre-designed templates that you can fill in with your own data, or you can create your own design from scratch. We’ve used Piktochart to create graphics for our blog posts that can be easily viewed on different social media platforms.

Infographics have become increasingly popular, for good reason. They can convey a lot of information in a short amount of time, in a visually appealing delivery. This makes the information easily digestible for today’s tech-savvy generation. Let’s face it, today’s audience rarely will stop scrolling a web page long enough to read a few paragraphs. An infographic delivers the important information quickly and efficiently. It also looks great.

We also love Piktochart’s selection of backgrounds, images and graphics available. All their designs are very clean and modern, making everything you design look professional and beautiful. Of course we still use the pros when we’re designing for clients, but Piktochart is great when we want quick graphics for a blog post or social media.

We love having Piktochart in our toolbox. What tools can’t you live without?
