The Path to 1 Million Views

Colman, a longtime SlideShare power user, published 37 presentations over seven years, ultimately reaching 1 million views. His most popular presentation -- part of a SlideShare upload campaign -- titled, “What I Carry: 10 Tools for Success” has fetched more than 330,000 views.

He shares his advice for reaching 1 million views on SlideShare:

  • Invest Time in the SlideShare Community
    Follow other users, “like” and comment on SlideShares you admire, and subscribe to your favorite topics. “SlideShare isn’t just a repository for PowerPoint files. It’s a community. And like any community - real or virtual - you get out of it what you put into it,” he says.

    With 18 million uploads and 40 million registered users on SlideShare, there are a lot of examples and people to learn from. See how others engage an audience, and do the same.
