A simple DashThis dashboard report
The power of data visualization
You know how you tend to stick on Tweets or Facebook posts that have images more than those that don’t? It isn’t just you.
Now imagine if you could make someone stick on your web performance data as much as you stick on an image-laden Facebook post. Well, you can. Just make your data visual.
90% of the information your brain receives is visual, and visual information is processed approximately 60,000 times faster and more efficiently than text or verbal information.
When we read something, we’re required to think about the words were reading in order to derive meaning. This thinking occurs in the cerebral cortex-part of the brain, which is relatively slow and inefficient. However, when we see something, our visual cortex-part of the brain is the one working. By switching to this area of the brain, this shifts the cognitive balance and allows for exponentially faster and more efficient assimilation of data.

Basically, the quickest way to get into someone’s head is through visual communication.

Another dreaded Monday afternoon. Another dreaded call with the web agency our VP so desperately wanted us to take on due to some half-assed recommendation from a local “Internet guru” who spent the most of his time pandering “digital ecosystems” and selling his over-priced services as a “growth accelerator” for start-ups.
But I digress. Back to the call.
I got on the call with my colleague, Marie, who was in charge of our company’s online marketing initiatives. As the head of the marcom department, I wanted to check in to see how she and the agency were getting along and what progress was being made with our SEO and PPC campaigns (read: we were going to finally get our first report). While we were waiting for the Pavlov “dee-doot” to start the convo with our agency’s lumberjack-hipster account manager, Bernard, in pops our VP, Mark*.
