  10. 10. Picking the right SlideShare Optimize your content mix for lead generation. Case-studies and thought leadership content are most viewed during a buyer’s research phase. Expect high views but lower lead form conversions for such content. Tip: Ask less questions in the lead form. On the other hand, educational or promotional content is viewed when a buyer is interested in knowing more about your product/service. In this case, expect lower views but higher lead form conversions. This is your opportunity to ask your prospects more questions. 09
  11. 11. Titles are the start of your funnel Make sure your title accurately describes and sells your content. Tip: Don’t forget to add a detailed description to make your content more discoverable in search. Leverage SlideShare to boost your search visibility. 10
  12. 12. Entice your audience with eye-popping cover slides A book really is judged by its cover. This is what will initially attract viewers. Craft a cover slide that people can’t resist clicking on.
  13. 13. Where to place the lead form Slide placement impacts the number of leads you generate and the quality of leads. • For example, attaching a lead form when the viewer reaches the last slide or has downloaded your SlideShare is likely to capture relatively less, but higher quality leads. It indicates the viewer’s interest in that piece of content/topic. • Attaching a lead form in the middle of the SlideShare can get you a higher number of leads given that a lot of users tend to drop off before the end of the SlideShare. • A/B test the slide placement and find the right balance for your needs. 12
  14. 14. Distribution is Key Embed on the Web: Expand your reach by embedding your SlideShares in blog articles, websites, LinkedIn posts and more. Great content is not great until it reaches the right audience. Be Social: Reach more viewers by sharing your SlideShare content on social media, like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and more. 13
