NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — With the concept of content marketing skyrocketing over the past several years, small businesses now have a greater opportunity to create informative content that helps to solidify their brand and spread their message. If done well, one such form of content – infographics – takes the best of text, multimedia and design to create a visual shorthand that tells a story that begs to be shared. However, even the best infographic won’t get off the ground if it’s pitched to the wrong publication or website.

In his latest article, Marc Prosser, publisher at Fit Small Business, suggests utilizing a three tip approach that he follows when accepting infographic submissions for his website:

  1. Relevancy: Would my audience be interested in the topic?
  2. Quality: Is the information accurate and well presented?
  3. Story: Is there an interesting tidbit that I can add to the infographic?
