Visme Review: 7 things that caught my attention

TLDR: I recently rediscovered Visme an all-in-one content creation platform. This is my Visme review listing the top features that caught my attention the most.

I tried Visme first way back in 2016. I played around it a bit but didn’t really create anything. But after the initial experience, it dropped off my radar as I was not really dabbling into infographics at that time

Cut to 2020, and I was writing a round-up post listing some of the Infographics creators available in the market. During my research, I stumbled upon Visme again. 

I was pleasantly surprised by the new look and the features the team has built over the years. I discovered that team had spent the last one and a half years creating a new version of Visme which is faster and more powerful.

As a result, Visme is no longer just an infographic creation tool. It’s a visual content creation platform capable of taking your content marketing to the next level.

The best part is that the basic plan is completely free where you can create up to 5 projects in a month at no cost!   

Therefore I decided to write this Visme review listing the top features that caught my attention the most (not in any particular order). 

#1 Made for marketers 

As a marketer in this fast-moving world, you neither have the patience to wait endlessly for your designer to deliver a project nor you have the time to learn complicated software like Photoshop. 

At the same time, you don’t want to compromise on the quality of the material you share with your audience. 

So, Visme is the tool for you if you want to create world-class visual assets effortlessly.

Visme combines simplicity, flexibility, and interactive features within a single platform. It gives you everything you need to create engaging content within an easy-to-use online interface. 

Take a look at this infographic I recently made using Visme which has received almost 6,000 views on LinkedIn. 

It took me less than an hour to make this infographic. So, in my Visme review, I’ll rate it as superb addition to a market’s tool box.

#2 Versatility 

Vsime is a complete content creation platform.

It is capable of creating Presentations, Infographics, Charts and Reports, Documents, Timelines, and Social Media Graphics, and more.  

Content types explained

You can create your content right in your browser with no downloads required. Once you are satisfied with the result you can publish your creation online, make it private, embed it to a site, or download for offline use.

You can even create your own custom designs using a blank template, custom dimensions, and using the asset library. Look at the  Instagram carousel post I created below by using a blank template. 

In my Visme review, the ability to create custom design scores handsomely.

#3 Huge Asset Library 

Visme comes with an inbuilt asset library that covers almost all categories. The assets range from text widgets to thousands of high-quality icons to millions of stock images. All assets are searchable and can be used in a design just in a click.

Say goodbye to costly subscription sites!

Since the asset library is built-in to the interface of Visme, you no longer have to waste time downloading images, resizing them, and then adding them to your designs.

As quality visuals can make or break a design, a huge integrated library scores big again in my Visme review.

#4 Animated Graphics 

Animated graphics are all the rage on social media. 

But traditionally only companies with a dedicated design team were capable of producing such animated designs. 

Not anymore!

With 500+ customizable animated illustrations, characters, and gestures that can be dragged and dropped into any projects, now anyone can create engaging animated graphics. 

Visme utilizes a powerful yet easy-to-use animation engine. 

You can virtually animate any object with a couple of clicks. 

Simply click on an object, and you can apply an animation preset from the “Animate this Object’ button.

#5 Integrated Audio Engine 

You didn’t see it coming. Did you? 

Even I was not aware of this feature when I started writing my Visme review and discovered during my exploration.

We all know that sound can add life to even otherwise a mundane presentation. With Visme now you can add that extra layer of engagement to your creations.

It comes with an amazing library of audio tracks that can be inserted into one slide (for presentations) or used as background music for an entire project.

You can even record your own audio, upload it, and manage the timing and fade controls from one panel.

#6 Full analytics 

Creating content is only half of the story, the other half is measuring your success.  

In order to grow your reach, you need to know what is working for you and what is not. Therefore, you need a robust analytics platform that augments your marketing efforts. 

Visme has you covered you on this front too. 

Using its inbuilt analytics module you can fully track the visitors for any project you have published. Using the data you can gauge the effectiveness of your projects over any given period of time.

#7 Used across industries 

Lastly, I was super impressed by the list of companies that uses Visme. 

A tool is no good if it’s not used by anyone. But Visme is popular across the board. 

It’s used by giants like IBM, start-ups, in Education, Non-profit institutions, to B2B Marketing Teams, B2C Marketing Teams, Sales Professionals, and more!

Conclusion 

So, what’s the verdict of my Visme review? 

Well, Visme is around for more than r 7 years. The team behind Visme continuously upgrading and refining its features. 

Take the latest release for example. For Visme  2020 the team has collected feedback from over 4.4 million users from over 120 countries.

It’s a platform created to be versatile easy but yet powerful and used by content creators from all walks of life. 

I strongly recommend that you give Visme a try.
