6 Places to Share Your Infographic
If you’ve invested time and resources into creating an infographic, you’ve probably already got a decent outreach plan in place specific to the topic matter. But it never does any harm to revisit a few non-topic specific options as well and here are 6 places you might want to consider sharing your data visualisation.
There are hundreds (if not thousands) of boards on Pinterest dedicated specifically to infographics. Some of these are collaborative boards too. For example, this board has over 1,700 followers and 19 collaborators. Get in touch with some of the collaborators and ask either for permission to be added as a collaborator yourself, or if they wouldn’t mind sharing.
Pinterest is incredibly visual and a great platform for sharing infographics.
This is arguably the best known infographics library out there. Now, I do want to suggest some outlets not related to libraries within this post, but Visual.ly is a really high quality website.
3. My Blog Guest
Now, I’ve talked a lot about My Blog Guest here already. But I haven’t mentioned the Infographics Gallery. This is a more recent addition to the site and allows you to share your Infographic, accompanied with one or more unique descriptions of 150 words or more. Then, in much the same way that bloggers can offer their blogs for your articles in the articles gallery, they can offer to publish your infographic.
4. Infographics Showcase
Another decent quality library, of sorts. Infographics Showcase is a high authority site with a good selection of infographics. It’s worth submitting here and doesn’t take long to do so.
If you are confident that your infographic is of such a quality that getting it under the right eyes will lead to more inbound links, then it’s worth paying to get those eyes on it. Adwords is a way to do so. If you have an infographic on smartphone usage, for example, bid on search phrases such as “Smartphone penetration statistics,” or “Smartphone usage statistics.” These non-commercial clicks are often not as expensive as others you might have encountered when PPC-ing for paying clients.
6. Paid Stumbles
StumbleUpon’s paid advertising can be a cost effective way to get thousands and thousands of eyes on your work. You can’t target as specifically as you can with Adwords, of course, (i.e. down to keyword level) but the traffic is relatively low cost and you can target based on user interests.
This is the tip of the ice berg in terms of ways to promote an infographic, particularly if you have a budget for paid promotion. Let us know your preferred methods!
