  • 10 Proven Tips to Leverage Slideshare by @douglaskarr http://www.marketingtechblog.com
  • Your title slide is your most important slide. Not only is it key to folks opening it on Slideshare, it’s also key in whether or not Slideshare promotes the presentation on their site. A promoted presentation can achieve tens of thousands of clicks! Don’t be afraid to buy a great background image from a stock photo site. Write your title with a beautiful font (see Tip #2 to find out how to get Slideshare to display it correctly). And work on your title – make it compelling!!!
  • Slideshare doesn’t do well with custom fonts and layouts. If you build out a beautiful presentation in PowerPoint with unique fonts and layouts, their system probably won’t convert it well. And avoid animations altogether. Once your PowerPoint presentation looks great, just do a File > Save As and you can export each slide as an image. Create a totally new presentation with the images as each slide. Voila! No import issues!
  • NOTES – are the sections under your slide in PowerPoint. If you fill them in, Slideshare will display them on Slideshare – providing your Slideshare presentation page with additional content that can attract search engine traffic.
  • Links are converted by the Slideshare system when you embed them in your PowerPoint presentations. Click Tweet on this slide and you’ll see what you can do with it!
  • Slideshare Pro offers you advanced analytics and lead generation! That’s right… insert a form directly in your Slideshare presentation to capture leads. It’s only $19 a month!
  • Slideshare continues to enhance profile pages… be sure to fill it all in! Follow your colleagues and even your competition. More followers equates to more views, more sharing and ultimately a better chance of driving business. People want to investigate why they should listen to you – be sure to write a concise bio that dictates your experience and expertise.
  • Getting wordy can really hurt your presentations. Slideshare is a visual medium… be sure to leverage it that way. Words are not the enemy, though. If you need to have words, don’t hesitate. This isn’t a keynote or a speech… it’s a presentation where people don’t get to see or hear you. Leverage it accordingly.
  • People find presentations through search engines and through Slideshare’s internal search… so utilize keywords effectively in titles, tags and descriptions.
  • Add theSlideshare application to your completed LinkedIn profile. Your presentations will add life to your boring LinkedIn page!
  • So… it’s finally posted. You’re not done yet!Promote it on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, your blog... EVERYWHERE! Pssst…And a few months later, promote it AGAIN! You’ll reach a new audience.
