infographic novelAs the popularity of content marketing increases, companies are getting more creative to stand out. The notion of infotainment has begun to enter the realm of otherwise boring and routine marketing communications.

I recently received a heads up on a very clever content marketing object called “The Stalking Dead: A Zombified Infographic-Novel on Cyber Security” from a company called Hostway.

As the number of infographics and other media types become more common, a creative effort like this really stands out. There’s just one question: is it optimized?
