Class offered on the use of infographics

July 11, 2013 by  

Reflecting the internet world’s shift towards using pictures to create traffic and promote websites, a workshop on Infographic Domination will be held early next week.

According to the organizers, statistics show that infographics attract 45% more web users than text alone and 30% will pass the link on to others even if the information has no purpose. An infographic is a visual representation of information that is often used instead of a lot of text to attract consumers.

In this two-hour workshop, users will learn what ‘right brain’ techniques are and how to best use them to convey information and gain a competitive edge.

There is a science behind this methodology, and instructor Stephanie Staidle will explain how and why this science works to the advantage of business owners.

The course will also teach participants how to create their own infographics, with complimentary software given out at the class. It will be held from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm on Monday, July 15, at Citizen Space, 425 2nd Street #100 in San Francisco, only 20 minutes from Lafayette.

Along the same lines, the Hattery in San Francisco will offer a class on how to start and maintain a career in product management. The class begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, July 16. Information will be given on every aspect of product management, including day-to-day responsibilities.

The Hattery is located at 414 Brannan Street, San Francisco. Attendees can make sure they stay in touch with business owners and patrons by using business card printing services.
