There is no need to say that texts are vital for your marketing campaigns. They indeed deliver a major bulk of information for the audience to know. However, according to Mind Tools, about 65% of the population are visual learners and, according to David Hyerle, about 90% of the information, that is consumed by our brain, is nothing but visual.
Given these numbers, it is safe to accept the fact, that no matter how meaningful the text is, your conversion rates might not skyrocket. This is because the readers ( potential clientele) will simply get bored with the amount of letters to consume, and not everybody loves to read at all. Therefore, it is natural that every geniusly written text information about your product MUST be adorned with high-quality visuals.

Such content should align with the purpose of written text, enhance it and be the trigger for the viewer-reader to learn more.

It is extremely useful to give explanations on the sets of instructions, it shows number correlations and how one thing appears out of another. It is good for demonstrating statistics and analytics. It is no brainer to create, however way too essential to help the reader process the information better.
Infographics plus animation combined turns into an interesting visual to be placed within the topic you reveal for your audience. People love to see some movement of entertaining elements that are the bearers of useful information. Looking at the information they provide, we get to memorize better and create the associative connection between ”seen” and “written”.
Some humor is so appreciated when the topic requires a lot of concentration and processing of data, loaded with big-time serious matters. GIFs and memes, relevant to the topic, will give a reader some time to chill, recharge and move on with the content.
