Add Visual Humor To Your Website With A Cartoon Subscription Service

In today’s world of Pinterest and Facebook, having good visual content is key to spreading your business’s message. No matter what type of business you run, having quality images to accompany your content can compel your audience to not only listen to what you have to say, but also to remember it and share it with others.

But for certain types of businesses, coming up with compelling images can prove challenging. That’s where Cartoonist Mark Anderson comes in, with his new business cartoon subscription service.

Said Anderson:

“Read any article on increasing your blog’s readership or getting more followers and they’ll all say something like “use relevant images to engage and entertain you readers.” It’s true. Not only are you making your content more enjoyable and memorable, but you get an SEO and image search boost. People love to share cartoons they like too, so adding a cartoon is an easy way to get extra tweets and retweets. And if you’re a business that’s trying to figure out how best to take advantage of Pinterest, pinning cartoons that link back to your content is a win-win.”

Anderson’s cartoons depict a wide variety of subject matters, from sales meetings to courtrooms to classrooms and everything in between. His new Andertoons subscription service allows businesses the opportunity to use an unlimited amount of cartoons on the site, with new ones added weekly, for $20 per month. Users can also choose the Premium option for $75 per month, which includes access to print ready images for use in presentations, newsletters, or similar materials.

Anderson, who started cartooning professionally about ten years ago and is a regular contributor to Small Business Trends, just launched the subscription service upon the suggestion of a blogger friend:

“I’d been offering smaller versions of my cartoons as free embeds for a while, and he said “you know, I should really be paying you for these. Maybe something like a subscription for $20 a month.” It was such a brilliant idea.”

In addition to the monthly subscription service, Anderson creates custom cartoons for clients with more specific needs.
