Don’t Forget About Social Media!
Infographic directories and submission sites are great, but what you really don’t want to forget about is social media! With over two billion active users across Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest and others… it would be a huge mistake to not take advantage of this massive traffic source at hand. When posting to each social network, take a few minutes to create a unique thumbnail image to match the site of your status updates as well. You can click here to see an updated chart on sizes and restrictions you should be aware of.
In addition to making manual updates and posting your infographic through your social media accounts, make sure that you have social sharing buttons placed on your site as well. As we recommend to all of our clients, always post your infographic to your site first (along with a 1,000+ word article), as this will be the main reference that all other sites will link to when sharing your infographic to difference audiences.
