  5. 5. SlideShare PRO – “Send Tracker”Imagine being able to send a SlideShare presentation link to abusiness prospect and then being able to see reporting about itbeing opened, and the most viewed slides? With PRO, that iswhat you get!On the next slide is an example where a presentation was sentand the link opened 3 times. I can see how the presentationwas viewed on each occasion it was opened.The presentation does not open in the normal view. It has aspecial view that removes all the links and navigation links soyou know that the recipient is only looking at your presentationand not distracted by ads or other menu options.24 March 2013 5

  9. 9. SlideShare PRO – “Lead Capture”SlideShare PRO enables lead capture via a form. You cancreate a form just after an upload or to an existing uploadvia the “my uploads” menu choice.What I like about the lead capture process is the integrationpossibilities with SalesForce CRM, using Slide2Lead, a freeapplication that can be installed from the SalesForceAppExchange. For more information on this key topic forbusinesses, consult the FAQ for lead capture.Here are some best practice tips for lead capture usingSlideShare PRO.24 March 2013 9
