16 Jun Infographic ftw! | The Intern’s Diary
This week was exciting! I not only wrote three blogs for the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter website, but I also spent a whole day creating an amazing infographic and organised another photography competition. So much going on in just one week! Read more about what I’ve been up to in the past week.
Blogs, blogs blogs.
First off all, I started the week by preparing the newsletter for Strategy Plus and included all the blog articles we posted about rebranding.
As we need more content on the BJQ site and because it’s Father’s day on the 18th June, I wrote a compact guide for what you can do with your dad on Father’s day in the JQ. So don’t forget to take your dad out or just spend the day with him. The older we get, the more we appreciate the small things.
Dan also asked me to write a blog post about the fancy furniture shops we have in the Jewellery Quarter. So I contacted the shops and wrote this beautiful piece of art. The process was not easy but I managed to get great pictures and write engaging content. We even got a discount for all JQ residents (In case you’re interested – it’s 5% for Glassdomain). My other post about museums in the JQ can be found here, even though I understand that not everyone is into that.
Competition time again!
As we did last month, we are also having a photography competition this month. You can win a £50 voucher for Otto wood fired pizza! You might have some old pictures of the chamberlain clock or just live in the JQ and take pictures every day? Make sure to enter the competition. Find out more about it here.
Infographic? Yes please!
On Friday I spent a whole day working on the infographic. You just have to choose a template that fits your needs and a topic that is relevant for your target group. Even though it took me a looong time to finalise it and make it perfect, it was fun. We already posted one here but will add more soon.
Here are some stats from Hubspot about infographics that will make you want to try it out.
“Eye-tracking studies show internet readers pay close attention to information-carrying images. In fact, when the images are relevant, readers spend more time looking at the images than they do reading text on the page.“
“Infographics are “liked” and shared on social media 3X more than other any other type of content.“
And if that’s not reason enough to at least give it a shot, then I don’t know what is.
