When it comes to capture the audience attentions visual content always win the game. A beautifully presented content convey your message faster than the text message. That’s why they say “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
Over 90% of marketers said they use visual content is more than 50% of the articles they published. Whereas, 30.4% said they use original graphics like infographics most.
But there is one problem…
How do you create visual content attracts audience to take action?
Hiring a professional designer would cost you around $500 – 1000 for a single infographic. On the other hand, if you’d try to make it by yourself you’ll need to learn designing and that would cost you so much time. And, as a busy marketer I don’t think it’s a good idea.

Manage your Branding
However, Visme has tons of fonts, icons, and graphic library but it also allows you manage and customize your own graphics.

Full Animation Engine
Visme utilizes a powerful yet easy-to-use animation engine. Virtually any object can be animated with a couple clicks. Simply click on an object, and you can apply an animation preset from the “Animate this Object’ button.
You can also go to the Objects list and view the position of objects with respect to each other on an animation timeline and adjust to your liking.

From contemporary to handwritten, calligraphy or even typewriter, there are a variety of styles to satisfy any project need. Users can also change parts of a text; for example, they can apply a font/style to a single word and maintain a different font/style in the rest of the text block.
A New Text Editing
Visme allows you add vertical and horizontal text padding:
Add granular styling:
Highlight portions of text and apply custom styling specifically to that content. You can now highlight words or phrases within a text block and apply styling while maintaining the rest of the content’s formatting intact.
In the earlier version of Visme text editor, it wasn’t possible to have different fonts in the same text block. The new version provides further flexibility by allowing the use of multiple fonts and styles within the same block, reducing the number of layers needed to achieve the same effect.
