This infographic poses reasons why eBay and Amazon are great online sales sites. The infographic rarely utilizes visuals to tell its story, instead relying on text to convey its message. This is a strong approach if you are trying to provide your readers with a lot of content; however, presenting the information as text in a highly-visual infographic is detrimental to the piece's overall goals of providing information in a quick and easy-to-understand way. This causes the infographic to fail, as the subject matter becomes heavy to digest, and can turn away readers. When designing your infographics, create a pleasing visual experience that will spark the curiosity of your viewer. Because the information isn't visualized here in an engaging way, this infographic's visual communication suffers. As it currently stands, we'd give this an F.
