Why am I writing Visme Review for the second time?
Infographics, Graphic images are the most attractive and traffic driving content nowadays in Social Media. The businesses that invest more in their graphics tend to drive traffic from Social Media. The rest of the websites still have a tough time for organic reach at Social Media.
There are so many graphic design tools available online. But, for creating Infographics I always love to go with Visme, because of the huge number of premade templates available there.
Let’s see more about the features of Visme in this Visme Review.
Note: This is a sponsored Post. I received 6 months of Premium membership of Visme for this review. However, the content of this review is completely based on my opinion. If you have a product/service to be reviewed, then check my advertising options.

Cons of Visme:
Though there are so many good features available at Visme, I used to notice a small error while downloading the image.
When I type the last line of text, the editor screen shows it in a single line, but while downloading the image, the text would have been wrapped to the next line. The following image shows you the text wrapped image.
And, here is the actual image that is supposed to be
To set it right, you just need to extend the text box length. I guess, this is a small issue that Visme will fix it up soon.
Visme has three different types of Pricing.
Visme Pricing for Individuals:
The Basic package is completely free. However, it is limited to 5 Projects, 100 MB storage, Limited Templates. You can download your graphic only as JPG or PNG.
Also, when you download your images with the Basic Package, they will have Visme Logo. If you want to remove the Visme Logo from your images, then you must upgrade to either Standard or Complete Membership.
The Standard membership costs $19/month and the Complete membership costs $30/month.
The complete membership allows you to create Unlimited Projects. They provide you with 10 GB storage and you have options to collect and store Leads.

If you want custom quotations, then you need to contact Visme for the Enterprise Package.
Visme Pricing for Education:
Probably Visme is the only Graphic Designer that I came across having memberships dedicated to Students and Schools.
Unlike the other memberships which last for months, Visme’s Educational packages are calculated based on Semesters.
The Student package will cost $30/semester and the Educator package will cost $60/semester.
If you are representing a School, then you might need bulk access to Visme account. You can contact Visme for the pricing.
Apart from creating graphic images, Visme provides you an opportunity to earn money. You can make use of the Visme Affiliate Program.
When you refer customers to Visme, you will get 30% recurring commissions.
What do you mean by recurring commission?
As long as the customer you referred renews his Visme membership, you will be earning commissions for it. So, if you refer a lifelong customer, you will be earning lifelong commissions.
