Mind mapping helps with brainstorming new ideas. You can also boost your creativity and better organize yourself. There's plenty of room to create bad visualizations, which have more to do with choosing the wrong software. While you can use Microsoft Word to visualize concepts, mind mappers prefer better solutions. Word requires a lot of manual labor for creating designs.
It's better to use the dedicated Venngage Mind Map Maker that offers free templates that are easy to use and customize. With a Business plan, you can save your templates for future use, and download them in a variety of formats, including PNG, PNG HD, PDF, Interactive PDF, and present them in PowerPoint.
