I’m not gonna lie... I’ve always loved infographics. I think this is probably because I’ve never been a big fan of reading long books and user guides — but at the same time, I do love stats and data. I’ve always been more of a visual and hands on learner. When I first started seeing how infographics were gaining momentum a few years ago, I knew it was an area that I wanted to be involved in and even started to create a few of my own.
As I started to learn more about creating infographics and how to focus them towards my niche audience, I also started to learn about the best ways to promote them online as well. Since millions of sites are creating content daily, it simply isn’t enough to just put infographics out there and hope for the best. I actually learned this the hard way through my first couple of designs.
I was even featured as a branding expert on InfographicDesignTeam.com to share my expertise on how to effectively create and promote infographics. Be sure to check out the full list from other experts, as my methods aren’t the only ones that are working!
Through these methods I really got to see my infographics start to go viral and pick up social shares and backlinks once I started to use infographic directories. Most of them were free and it only took a few minutes to submit my design to each of them manually.
To help with your infographic outreach, I compiled a list of seven great infographic directories I still use today.
