Screw Powerpoint. How to Create a Killer SlideShare with Canva

  1. A Step-by-Step Guide to using Canvato repurpose an eBook on SlideShare
  2. manhattanflowershow.com| info@mfs.com| #manhattanflowershow Create a canva.com account. STEP: 1
  3. manhattanflowershow.com| info@mfs.com| #manhattanflowershow STEP: 2 Choose a title slide template that is a good match for your eBook theme.
  4. The title slide is the most important in your deck.
  5. The title slide is the most important in your deck. It pulls the reader in & shares the deck's value.
  6. 70% of SlideShare traffic comes from organic search It also puts your deck in a position to be found.

  10. STEP 5: Develop a narrative  that tells your story  succinctly.
  11. Short phrases communicate your message faster.
  12. STEP 6: Edit your work. Ideally, each page should be kept to 25 words or fewer.
  13. It takes too long, Business people are busy people. If you make them read an entire slide worth of copy, the chances that you'll get them to read the whole thing is slim to none. Only the wordsmiths, the copy editors, or people with a typography fetish will stay engaged with a page like this. If you do have a lot to say, consider controlling the reader's pace with color variations or separate slides. We've been doing that a bunch in this presentation. The folks a Velocity Partners also have some good examples. Anyway, who wants to read a full page of text?
  14. FINALLY! STEP 7 Design the deck.
  15. Canva has a variety of easy-to-use tools that anyone can do.
