  • Techsharing 24 Sep 2010 - Sharing with Slideshare. By Wayne Chia, Techsailor Group
  • Slideshare is to presentations what Youtube is to videos and Scribd is to documents and books
  • Why should you bother with Slideshare
  • Some statistics on the traffic on Slideshare:20 million monthly visitors80% of them business decision makers
  • Viewers of theSlideshare presentations come from all over the world, with the majority from the US
  • Of all the slides on Slideshare, the top 12 tags are business, management, marketing, social, media, hotel, travel, finance, earnings, quarterly, income and web. If your business or area of expertise fall under these tags, it’s time you get serious about Slideshare.
  • Advantages of Slideshare – what Slideshare can do for you?
  • Hosted and embeddable - Presentation creators can upload presentations to Slideshare. Slides can be embedded on any webpage
  • Supplement explanation / pitch over phone - Having a Slideshare presentation as a visual aid can dramatically improve the explanation / pitching process over phone
  • Full-screen ready – Full-screen function can be extremely useful for live-size presentations
  • Slideshare + Narration = SlideCast - Slides can include narrations synchronized with specific transitions
  • Slideshare + Video = VideoSlides – Look out for the “YouTube video inside” at the top left cornerto identify videoslides
  • Videoslides plays Youtube videos within the slides seamlessly
  • Getting “Slideshare Ready” – preparing your slides for Slideshare
  • Restructure contents – more narrative, less bullet points - It’s OK to remove bullet points and replace them with sequential slides
  • Warning: This is not an excuse to bloat your slide count!Just that simple sequential narration helps info stick better than boring bullet points.
  • Remove or simplify transitions/animation - Either remove animations completely or set them to Appear / Disappear.Slideshare will be able to convert the animation as separate slides.
  • Clean up / update slide notes - Slide notes within powerpoint and keynote files will appear as presentation transcript of a Slideshare slide. If presentation notes is blank, Slideshare will grab text from the slide contents. Best to tidy up prior to uploading.
  • Zip if you are uploading an Apple Keynote presentation - Slideshare currently support Apple keynotes only if they are uploaded as a *.zip file
  • Obtain royalty rights for images - It can be embarrassing to put up a slide on the public domain with a watermarked image. Make sure you obtain the rights to display them.

  • Follow function - The Follow function allows users to keep track of the latest slides produced by the people they follow.
  • Download function - If the author of the presentation allows file download, then the presentation file can be downloaded (exact replica of the file uploaded).
