08 Aug How to promote your infographic to drive a ton of traffic
So you’ve created an infographic – now what? In one of last month’s blog post, I’ve talked about how to create an infographic and the top tools to use that will make your job easier. Once you’re ready to publish your infographic, you also have to be ready to promote it heavily so that you get the most out of it. One of the ways you can promote your beautiful new infographic is to submit it to the various infographic submission websites available – which I’ll be covering in this post.
Infographics can be amazing tools for getting more links back to your website. One of the ways to do that is to submit your infographic to as many websites as you can. That way, not only do you get the links, but you also get more people to see your content and your branding. Make sure however that you add your logo and colours when you design the infographic.
Here are some of the best websites where you can submit your infographic:
Visual.ly is mainly an agency for creating infographics, but they also allow you to submit infographics for free and browse through other infographics.
Submitting your infographic is very easy, as there’s no checking process, but there’s also no guarantee your infographic will get on the trending page. If you do get on the trending list, you could get thousands of views, if not tens of thousands in some cases.
Users can also browse by category, so make sure to properly categorise your infographic when you submit it.Visual.ly is one of the top websites to upload your #infographic @visually via @lilachbullockClick To Tweet
Slideshare is definitely more known for their presentations, but you can also use it to publish your infographic. In fact, Slideshare claims that infographics are more viral than presentations on the popular website, and that they are getting more shares and likes.
All you have to do to submit your infographic to Slideshare, is simply log in to your account (you can also use LinkedIn to log in) and upload it there.Use @SlideShare to promote your #infographic & get more #traffic via @lilachbullockClick To Tweet

Posting your infographic on as many websites as possible is a must if you want to really get as much as possible out of it – links, views, traffic and engagement.
There are some other infographic directories out there, but many of them either don’t post very often or they don’t really have enough website visitors to make a difference. Please let me know in the comments section if you know of any other good ones, and please share if you found the post useful 🙂
