Infographics are all the rage these days. The good news is that more and more businesses are waking up and seeing the benefits that good infographics can have on their marketing efforts as well as branding visibility. Unfortunately, the infographic market has become saturated with, how do I say this… bad infographics. In fact some are just downright crap!

In fact if you are reading this and have submitted an infographic in the past but have never seen it posted here, it is probably because it sucked. Sorry to put it to you that way but truth is truth.
