Marketers Toolbox: Piktochart

Note: The Marketers Toolbox series teaches our readers about new technology we're using (or experimenting with) that proves to be useful, productive, or just plain entertaining. As a marketer's secret weapon, AgencySparks believes that the tools we use are vital to our success, thus, a marketer's toolbox is truly one of our most important resources.

In addition to networking, prospecting, and marketing on behalf of our specialist marketing agency partners, AgencySparks is deeply committed to helping talented marketers determine their next career move.

Our #JobSeeker blog series offers advice and suggestions for folks on the job hunt, one of which is the idea of adding visuals to your resume, and there's no better way to accomplish this than with this week's tool: Piktochart.

Piktochart makes it easy for anyone to create an appealing design that will help them get hired, present ideas, prove a point, summarize data, or quickly relay information in an easily digestible format.

This free tool features 400+ professionally-designed templates that you can choose as a base for your banner, presentation, report, or infographic. Once you've chosen your template, you can begin using Piktochart's platform editor to drag-and-drop texts, colors, images, and shapes.

Included in the "Free Lifetime Account," is unlimited creations, access to Piktochart's 4,000+ icons and images, and unlimited downloads of your finished product when you're ready to share it with the world.

For an extra $15/month, Piktochart's "Lite" version offers users access to all templates, and increases your image upload limit to 100mb; and for an extra $29/month, the "Pro" version includes the aforementioned access to all templates, a 400mb image upload limit, high-res image exports, high quality PDF exports, watermark removal, integrated export platforms, and additional privacy options.

Naturally, Piktochart has Pro-level pricing packages for Non-Profit and Education organizations, as infographics are certainly very useful for these industries, as well.

Besides being an incredibly robust free tool, Piktochart's value-add is their blog, where they publish how-to's, along with loads of visual inspiration for the culture, design, education, and marketing communities.
