Carbonite Small Business Disasters
Infographics as advertisments have a lot of potential. In this one about Small Business Disasters, Carbonite.com has shared the results of research they performed with small businesses.
What would your small business do if your computers were stolen or destroyed? Would your important data still exist? In April, Carbonite surveyed small businesses with between two and 20 employees to study their disaster recovery and data backup methods. We found that almost half of small businesses have already lost irreplaceable data.
The design does suffer a little from the large-font-syndrome that tries to make the numbers really large instead of visualizing them, but there are a number of good, simple visualizations included in the infographic.
The design also seems like something is missing at the top. No title, company logo or anything to indicated what this infographic is about. That’s espeically important because infographics can be heavily shared and have a life of their own on the Internet, separate from any text or explanation that the origianl company posts along with it.
I will say that I LOVE Carbonite as a customer!
