Guestographics are one strategy to gain backlinks and improve your positioning in the SERPs.
Guestographics are simply guest infographics. They are the result of a collaboration with another brand. Their content will be enhanced by your infographic design.

You can easily build backlinks for certain types of pages, such as surveys, blog posts, or interviews.

It gets difficult. Even in this case, offering to design a guestographic can help you get more positive responses.
Why? Everyone loves visuals. They’re easy to skim. In the content-rich online space, visuals are more effective at engaging users.
Original research and visuals are a killer combo in marketing.
