How to make a mind map diagram


Gather information about your subject

Research details ahead of time so you can quickly add in the information you need.


Select a template or start a blank diagram

Begin plotting subtopics branching from your main topic, then diving deeper into those subtopics with additional branches.


Organize your items into clear sections

You may find some areas have many more branches than others. Drag and Drop sections to give them the room they need to be seen.


Stylize it to emphasize important points

Using colors and text styling, emphasize key areas you'd like to draw viewers' attention to.


Collaborate and share

Get feedback from others, make any necessary edits, and share with the right people once it's finalized.

Use our mind map templates to get started
