Infographics continue to be one of the most popular types of content used in content marketing, used by 65% of B2B marketers alongside charts and photos.
But if you’ve invested in creating one, short of posting it on your own website, how else should you then distribute it to get the maximum value back?
This post tells you, with over 45 infographics submission sites you can submit to, from social media platforms to infographic directories and creative showcases.
These sites have all been categorized, in rough order of priority.
First up on that list is, unsurprisingly...
The place where you’re likely to see the most results from your infographics is of course social media.
Social media platforms are highly visual, and while not as engaging as video, infographics tend to attract more engagement and interest than more general images and photos.
For one, humans are 323% better at following information when text is supplied alongside illustrations, versus just text on its own.
For best results on social, don’t forget to employ the #infographic (and/or maybe #infographics) hashtags where applicable to the platform in question.
As well as slideshows, SlideShare (now owned by Scribd) also accepts infographic submissions.
However, it must first be converted into a PDF before you upload it.
Pinterest is almost made for infographics, with it being an almost purely visual platform, and images performing best when in the longer vertical format that most infographics are created in.
Instagram is another predominantly highly visual platform.
However, while effective (such as attracting a 700% increase in engagement) it’s not as suitable as Pinterest for the longer visual format.
So to make it work, at least if it’s one of those long infographics, you have to approach it a little creatively.
Easelly suggest the following:
- Taking a snippet from it, and sharing it as a trivia or factoid.
- Splitting it into sections, sharing them as a post with multiple photos.
- Using their software (previously covered here) to create the infographic and resize it appropriately for Instagram.
For long visual infographics, approach Facebook in a similar way to Instagram above, by sharing only portions of the infographic at a time.
If you share the whole thing at once it will simply be scaled down to fit in the feed, be surrounded by blank space, and be largely unreadable.
Here’s a longer guide on sharing infographics on Facebook effectively, and here's how to grow your followers on the platform.
Again, it would be unwise to share the full infographic (unless already sized appropriately) on Twitter.
So instead share a visually-appealing snippet or section, and link to the full infographic somewhere else.
And of course, do so multiple times with other sections of the infographic.
In most respects, the same applies to LinkedIn as for the Instagram/Facebook/Twitter trio above.
But for additional exposure, you can also upload an infographic to your profile by clicking on the plus ‘+’ icon on the Featured section.
You can also potentially add the full infographic to a LinkedIn article, and then share a link to that via a normal LinkedIn post.
7. Reddit r/Infographics
This is a subreddit that focuses, as you can see, on infographics.
Some can attract quite a bit of engagement.
More on how to market on Reddit here.
For best results on Flickr, try submitting your infographic to a relevant group like this one (shown above).
This category reflects a couple of other sites that didn’t fit easily into the other categories here—one a news-based site, the other a creative agency.
9. Fast Company
This site has an ‘infographic of the day’ page as illustrated above.
There isn’t a submission process as such, but you can try:
- Emailing the editor via firstname.lastname@example.org
- Connecting with relevant individuals at https://www.fastcompany.com/staff-masthead such as via LinkedIn, and inquiring that way
10. Media Caffeine
This digital marketing agency has an infographic gallery made up of both designs created, collaborated on… or are simply inspired by.
That means if you catch their eye, you could get featured. There’s a submit button on the page to enable submissions.
These are well-regarded websites that operate as showcases for creative work.
While offering additional exposure for your infographic, they may not necessarily help in terms of attracting your target audience.
Behance is an Adobe-owned site, and is a platform for creative people to showcase as well as discover creative content.
After signing up, you can create Projects to group together related work. Stats show you how many have seen your project and shown appreciation for it.
It has some other social media-type elements too, so members can follow each other and then see their projects appear in their feed..
Dribbble is a type of social media site designed for creatives and digital designers, enabling creators to promote their own work.
While of course frequented by creators, it also attracts others looking for creative help.
These are sites specifically designed to showcase infographics.
Some are paid only, others a mix of paid and free submission.
However, it’s unclear as to what if any value they really offer—so if paying for placement, approach with an open mind.
13. Infographic Bee
Provides options for free or paid submission options, with the paid option expediting the process.
Again, this has free and paid submission options.
15. e-Learning Infographics
As the name suggests, this site accepts submissions of infographics related to education only.
17. Infographic Website
Also shares infographics across their social media accounts.
Finally, here’s a list of infographic-related blogs that you can try submitting your infographics to.
Some are better quality than others, but by all means experiment and see what kind of results they bring.
Some also offer paid options for submission, with a few having a Featured Infographic option as well.
Most of these are simply listed for your perusal and potential use, with no further comment provided unless of particular interest.
