    I'd definitely like to start incorporating infographics into my work, but I didn't get the graphic design skillset the rest of my family has. What are others' experience hiring people to make infographics based on a set of info you provide?

    • You can find lots of great inforgraphics designers at Fiverr. You should not use infographics with all your content though. Use it for your most thorough and 'link friendly' content. When looking for a designer on Fiverr, always check their live portfolio.
