You see, infographics are more than just entertaining to view; they are a powerful marketing tool. They offer a tangible and measurable value when it comes to promoting your pet business.

3 Tips For Maximum Sharability:
Make the image embeddable in your pet business site or pet blog – allow users to take the image and easily place it on their own site or social network. Also, be sure to embed a link back to your own pet business site within the image so you still receive inbound links from these types of shares. ‘Furbulous’!!
Use social sharing buttons – Surround your pet related infographic with social sharing buttons that will allow visitors to easily Tweet, Pin, Facebook or share a link to your site on popular social networks. In other words – Make your mark and BARK!
Be proactive – Get a head start on the viral effect and bring your infographic to your users. Tweet, Facebook, Pin, Google +1, or share your pet infographic on LinkedIn. And add your infographic to sites like StumbleUpon and Digg to help generate random traffic. Now that’s ‘pawsome’.
