We are all visual thinkers. 75 percent of the sensory neurons in our brains process visual information. As prospects and customers continue to be bombarded with information in the form of pure text such as whitepapers and blogs, it can be difficult to differentiate your content from the competition. Visual content can help and Slideshare is the perfect place to publish.
One of the top 150 sites on the web, Slideshare is not just a repository for your slide presentations. It’s a social channel where you can establish your brand as a thought leader and authority around topics and keywords. With 60 million visitors a month and 3 billion slide views a month (That’s 1140 Slides per second) if you are not publishing content here, you are simply missing opportunities.
The presentation below is from a session I recently did at Social Fresh West in San Diego. I pulled together seven essential tactics that successful Slideshare content publishers are using to turn their content marketing efforts up to eleven. Also included are some of the top businesses and brands using SlideShare effectively as part of their overall integrated marketing approach.
I chose the theme of Badass because it’s a style that’s understated yet instantly recognizable. Like a chopped Harley or the perfect pair of sunglasses, this style is simple, direct and functional. (Just like a good piece of content should be)
Visual language aids in decision making, is more persuasive, and makes a better, longer overall impression than simple text. Quite frankly, visual often kicks texts but in terms of overall views and virality across the social sphere. Who’s ready to get started?
