Want to use easy Infographic Template Tools to create stunning infographics… but don’t know where to start? 

Infographics are a proven way to attract attention and traffic to your website over many years.   

In this post I share 4 Infographic Template Tools for creating infographics easily and quickly… even if you are not a designer. 

4 Easy Infographic Template Tools for Stunning Infographics

For many years now I have been a big fan of infographics.  Since 2012 we have created many infographics for blog posts on my Socially Sorted blog, as well as for guest posts, and for clients.

Many have attracted tens of thousands of shares like this one on Amy Porterfield’s blog. Or this one for Razor Social.  Or this one on my blog. Many of our infographics have been featured on sites like HubSpot and Entrepreneur.

These infographics get shared every day to Pinterest, even 3 or 4 years after they were first posted.

That’s tens of thousands of shares and 100s of re-blogs on other sites.

When was the last time you could say that about your posts on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram?

I wrote about what “works” when creating infographics here if you want some hot tips (click the image):

What if you don’t have a design team to create an infographic for you?

Can I let you in on a little secret?  Although I have had illustrators and designers on my team, I have also created many of my own infographics.

It’s not that difficult if you have a great infographic template tool – like the tools I am about to show you.

You see, in the past 3 years,  soooooo many more options have become available to us compared to what we had before.

All you need is a great infographic template – like the ones I am about to show you.

These infographic template tools will become your secret weapons.  With or without a designer, you can create shareable images – infographics – of any size that drive traffic back to your website.

All of these tools allow you to easily create your own infographics by simply switching out images, background photos, text and fonts.

They all start with a “free” account and you can upgrade for more features or template designs.

You can also customize your designs as much as you want, but at their simplest, all that is required is a simple content switch,  and boom!…..you have yourself a classy, custom infographic!

So let’s take a look at the tools:

 

4 Infographic Template Tools for Creating Stunning Infographics

#1   Canva

Canva has had an infographic template series for a while as part of their free and paid user tools.

Their infographics are not super long, which is great as they share easily on blogs, Facbebook, Twitter, as well as Pinterest of course.

They are about 2000 pixels long (many traditional pixels are about 5000 pixels long).

I actually like that they are shorter in length.  They are long enough to catch attention, but compact enough to be processed easily and quickly.

Here’s an example of some of their templates:

As you can see, the “Motorcycles” template is made up of images.  I can easily switch out the images and the text to create something entirely different.

Check out this blog post to see what I was able to create using the infographic template above.

All I had to do was switch out the images, title and text.  Here’s the infographic:

Canva has a whole bunch of templates (including many new ones) that enable you to create infographics such as:

  • infographics made up mainly of photographs or images
  • timeline infographics
  • comparison infographics (this vs that)

…and many more.

You can also add your business or website details including URL or Logo to the bottom of many of the infographic templates.  This is a new feature and I’m pleased that they have added it.

 

#2   Easil

Easil is a new kid on the block when it comes to infographics and shareable images for Pinterest but I LOVE it. I wrote about Easil here.

You can check out their infographic templates here.

Easil’s infographics are not super long, about 1800 pixels long (many traditional pixels are about 5000 pixels long) which I love!  Here’s a few of their designs to cast your eyes over … funky, right?

#3   Piktochart

Piktochart

Piktochart has been a long-standing winner when it comes to infographic templates. It’s what they do – infographics.

They have one of the largest libraries of templates out there, so if you are in the market for DIY infographics, sign up for a Piktochart account.

Here’s a snapshot of their designs:

Also take note that Piktochart has expanded their templates to include Presentation templates.  These are designed so that they can be saved as an infographic or shared as a presentation.

Double whammy!

 

#4   Easel.ly

Easel.ly is another option for creating infographics with plenty of infographic template options.  You can re-use several thousand infographics for free within the platform so it’s super simple to get started.

Better still, you can either re-use templates or create from scratch with their comprehensive infographic builder.

You can upgrade easily for a reasonable cost to use their pro account (from as little as $3 per month) to access thousands more images, templates, fonts and elements.

  • Thanks for the handy tips. I’ve only done a couple of infographics, using piktochart, and blimey it took a long time. I like the look of a couple of the others, but as long as the work is done first in terms of collecting the information I want to use, then it should be a lot quicker whichever I use in future.

    • I think you’ll love some of these templates then – especially the shorter ones from Canva and Easil – they are super easy to modify and you can have something ready to post in less than an hour (if, as you say, you have your content/text ready to go!). But generally I recommend you have your storyboarding/copy/content ready to go anyway. You can do a little tweaking but if you have the main content ready, it makes the design work so much easier, especially with a template.

  • Haven’t we come a long way when it comes to infographics. I have used Piktochart and I agree with Emma.. it can take a long time. I have learned now to try and plan out the flow and work out what I want to use. Canva make it pretty easy but I haven’t yet explored easel.ly and Easil so I will definitely head over there.

    • Absolutely – they used to be so labour-intensive to create and now you can get something great up quickly… you are so right too- having a plan saves you SO much time. Enjoy playing with Easil!

  • I haven’t created an infographic before. Now I have somewhere to start and can take the time to explore these template tools. Amazing.

    • Awesome – I love these infographic tools… they are so handy!

  • Tk

    What is the best way to share infographics on Twitter and Facebook? I created a letter / page sized infographic and would like to post it as is – will it still show in its entirety on both platforms or do I have to size it to Facebook and Twitter’s recommended image size specs? If not, does it get truncated and only part of it will show — I am not sure if my original size will be kept?

    • Hey Tk – I don’t keep up with all the size changes or I wouldn’t get work done but generally if it is shorter and portrait size it will share well to both – once you go longer it is truncated especially on FB … so it’s good to experiment. I will often just do a test quickly then delete using a template and you can always see how it shares that way. But shorter ones definitely work better on Facebook.
