How I got
Hi,I’m @nickdemey
co-founder of BoardofInnovation.com
Here are some of 

the techniques I used to get 2.5M views
on our Slideshare Channel:
by @jessedee by @holman
Not in this slide deck:
- Work visually
- 1 slide = 1 idea
- yada yada …
Others made far better decks 

on this topic already!
What to expect:
- Practical tips to create decks for Slideshare
- Find & Create remarkable content
- Experiment with Call-2-Actions
- Make slides that can be shared.
- Extra tools we use.
2.5M views = long term strategy
Example:
This deck has 870K views
since 2011.
2.5M views = long term strategy
Last year: 1M views
we add another Slideshare every 2-3 months.
2.5M views = long term strategy
Last year: 1M views
Let’s aim for another 200K views!
Thanks for sharing this deck ;)
This deck has 150K views so far. Why?
Let me start with an example:
I invest time.
Never ever make something quick & dirty. (= wasted time)
1 topic
I invest time.
Never ever make something quick & dirty. (= wasted time)
1 topic with 17 sub-topics with 2 examples 

for each!
It takes days, weeks to collect all this info.
While working on business model projects for clients, 

I already make notes to create decks later on.
a. I write 10-15 headlines.
I keep a list with +100 ‘interesting’ keywords to make more compelling headlines. 

(e.g. “secrets”, “should know”, “amazing”, “what would x do”,…)

It’s a difficult balance between between boring & “… what happened next” phrases.
First things first: A great cover!
b. Check if your design works for small thumbnails.
This is what most people will see first!
Slideshare previews, Facebook wall, social media shares ….



Your main keywords should still be readable (e.g. “Money Making”)
First things first: A great cover!
c. Find interesting teaser
image & give credit to
owner.
I work most of the time with Creative Commons images on Flickr.
other sources: unsplash.com (free) or I buy images via stocksy.com
First things first: A great cover!
First things first: A great cover!
Text
Text
d. Keep your cover simple.
(rule of thirds, few colours,…)
Your background should not grab the attention.
I blur backgrounds, make them darker, greyed out,…. to make the text more readable.
e. Desaturate your background.
First things first: A great cover!
First things first: A great cover!
f. Add a call-2-action already on the first page!
example:
follow @boardofinno - @nickdemey 

visit boardofinnovation.com
First things first: A great cover!
g. Don’t put links in these areas!

Building your storyline & call-2-actions
# Slides
% of Viewers
90% of people will not click beyond slide 10.
I don’t have hard data, but that is what I assume.
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
Look at the build up of this deck:
How to prevent people will ignore your slides
(& call2action buttons)
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
The first slides:
Often I try to start with a remarkable
image/ quote.
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
The first slides:
Call to action already on slide 4.
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
The first slides:
An overview of what to expect in
this slide deck.
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
I apply the principle of
“Give, Give, Give - Take.”
I talk 3 times as much about others.
All slides packed with links to other cases, 

people & sources to follow, let other people shine!
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
e.g. Resources for Paper Prototyping
but insert smaller links to other content we have:
e.g. Free innovation posters to download
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
Insert full page, but relevant content linked to
a product we sell. (e.g. Innovation Bootcamps)
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
59 slides:
Slides with relevant, hopefully inspiring content.
Slides with links to other content of us (on blog, other decks,…)
Slides with Call 2 actions to our commercial offering.
Slides with general Call 2 actions to our twitter/website/…
Building your storyline & call-2-actions
59 slides:
Slides with relevant, hopefully inspiring content.
Slides with links to other content of us (on blog, other decks,…)
Slides with Call 2 actions to our commercial offering.
Slides with general Call 2 actions to our twitter/website/…
Slides to encourage sharing (e.g. via Pay-with-a-tweet)
Create decks that are made to share
img flickrcc
Create decks that are made to share
Use Pay-with-a-tweet + embed on our own blog
When people want a PDF version of the
deck, they are asked to share the deck
on social media.
A link refers back to our blogpost.
Result:
Create decks that are made to share
Do you hate pay-with-a-tweet tools?
This is not a perfect tool, I agree.
But people can always see the full deck,
for free (without sharing) online.
In the end this just motivates me to
create even more valuable decks later
on. Share more to get more!
I hope that one day Slideshare would
offer an improved alternative. :)
Don’t forget to add
your twitter name in the title.
Create decks that are made to share
This will makes it easier to
track shares (@mentions) online.
Create decks that are made to share
Often, I re-upload my presentation 10 times!
People will spot better cases, typo’s,…
They will help to spread your presentation if you take their
feedback into account.
updated version
Create decks that are made to share
Another example updated version
I removed ‘2010’ 

so it looks less outdated.
I changed our call-2-actions

to updated product pages.
+
Create decks that are made to share
Recommended Plugin that I use to A/B test effective headlines
Kingsumo Wordpress Headlines plugin (via @appsumo)
I embed our slideshare in our own blogpost & experiment with 4-5 headlines.
If a specific headline works better, I’ll update my slideshare later on with a new cover.
Create decks that are made to share
I try to make custom preview images that will show on Social media.
A good Facebook thumbnail shows the full headline.
On your own website (wordpress) you can set specific images that will be shown
on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter,… but I don’t have good solution here. Most
plugins to help you out are cr*p.
Create decks that are made to share
Slideshare has no option (yet) to select preview images for social media.
As a result, Facebook cuts of 30% of your cover image
(if shared on your company facebook page)
Create decks that are made to share
Slideshare has no option (yet) to select preview images for social media.
Option A:
upload a alternative
preview img, when you
share on your wall.
But other people that share
your deck will not do this!
Create decks that are made to share
Option B: design your cover,
so it can handle some cropping.
Create decks that are made to share
It’s very hard to control what images will be shown on Facebook, twitter,
Linkedin, other social media…
Quick fix?
Check the Facebook Debug tool
& look for the image:og tag.
Quick fix 2?
Keep an eye on Optlook 

by @ozguralaz. Their tool
looks promising to help you out
Create decks that are made to share
At last, you need content worth sharing!
Sounds obvious, but too many people just talk about
Apple, Google & Amazon to make a point.
Look for new cases & examples:
Some of my sources for ‘niche’ content I follow via
@feedly & @hootsuite
www.producthunt.com - www.nextbigwhat.com
www.techinasia.com - www.digitalintelligencetoday.com
www.cdixon.org - tiltthewindmill.com
www.dcurt.is - @bellebcooper

@tijs, @baekdal, @ServiceSphere
Anything to add?
Launching & Seeding your slide deck
img flickrcc
1 2 3
Launch in 3 waves!
Launching & Seeding your slide deck
img flickrcc
Share your deck with your own channels
- We have a 13K linkedin community
- different twitter handles
- our blog at boardofinnovaton.com
- …
Learn from the first feedback to improve
your deck.
Launching & Seeding your slide deck
img flickrcc
Notify the people mentioned in your slides.
- Often I refer to startups & other experts
- They have their own channels to push
your deck to the next level
- Make sure people @slideshare are aware
of your new deck. (Slideshare of the day?)
- ….
Launching & Seeding your slide deck
img flickrcc
Try to grab the attention of the big blogs
- but… only when there is traction already I
will try to mail/alert authors at bigger
platforms.
- “25K views in 1 week!” is better than
“look, I’ve just uploaded a slide deck 2 sec
ago”
What if you fail?
img flickrcc
Failed?
after 2y only 15K views
not a big success…
Talking about the fact that we are hiring is just boring.
This will only be relevant to a very small audience.
after 2y only 11K views
…
Failed?
If your slide deck doesn’t fly,
don’t cry :)
It’s always valuable to talk to people
outside of your own team for honest feedback.
“I got lost after slide 3”
“There was nothing new in this deck…”
“too many numbers!”
…
You quickly learn why this specific deck might have failed

so you can improve your next presentation.
Avoid your Kodak or Nokia moment…

How I got 2.5 Million views on Slideshare (by @nickdemey - Board of Innovation)

  • 1. img flickrcc 2.5 Million views on slideshare How I got
  • 2. Hi,I’m @nickdemey co-founder of BoardofInnovation.com Here are some of 
 the techniques I used to get 2.5M views on our Slideshare Channel:
  • 3. by @jessedee by @holman Not in this slide deck: - Work visually - 1 slide = 1 idea - yada yada … Others made far better decks 
 on this topic already!
  • 4. What to expect: - Practical tips to create decks for Slideshare - Find & Create remarkable content - Experiment with Call-2-Actions - Make slides that can be shared. - Extra tools we use.
  • 5. 2.5M views = long term strategy Example: This deck has 870K views since 2011.
  • 6. 2.5M views = long term strategy Last year: 1M views we add another Slideshare every 2-3 months.
  • 7. 2.5M views = long term strategy Last year: 1M views Let’s aim for another 200K views! Thanks for sharing this deck ;)
  • 8. This deck has 150K views so far. Why? Let me start with an example:
  • 9. I invest time. Never ever make something quick & dirty. (= wasted time) 1 topic
  • 10. I invest time. Never ever make something quick & dirty. (= wasted time) 1 topic with 17 sub-topics with 2 examples 
 for each! It takes days, weeks to collect all this info. While working on business model projects for clients, 
 I already make notes to create decks later on.
  • 11. a. I write 10-15 headlines. I keep a list with +100 ‘interesting’ keywords to make more compelling headlines. 
 (e.g. “secrets”, “should know”, “amazing”, “what would x do”,…)
 It’s a difficult balance between between boring & “… what happened next” phrases. First things first: A great cover!
  • 12. b. Check if your design works for small thumbnails. This is what most people will see first! Slideshare previews, Facebook wall, social media shares ….
 
 Your main keywords should still be readable (e.g. “Money Making”) First things first: A great cover!
  • 13. c. Find interesting teaser image & give credit to owner. I work most of the time with Creative Commons images on Flickr. other sources: unsplash.com (free) or I buy images via stocksy.com First things first: A great cover!
  • 14. First things first: A great cover! Text Text d. Keep your cover simple. (rule of thirds, few colours,…)
  • 15. Your background should not grab the attention. I blur backgrounds, make them darker, greyed out,…. to make the text more readable. e. Desaturate your background. First things first: A great cover!
  • 16. First things first: A great cover! f. Add a call-2-action already on the first page! example: follow @boardofinno - @nickdemey 
 visit boardofinnovation.com
  • 17. First things first: A great cover! g. Don’t put links in these areas! previous slide You can activate a Get in touch button. but this will hide content below. next slide
  • 18. Building your storyline & call-2-actions img flickrcc
  • 19. Building your storyline & call-2-actions # Slides % of Viewers 90% of people will not click beyond slide 10. I don’t have hard data, but that is what I assume.
  • 20. Building your storyline & call-2-actions Look at the build up of this deck: How to prevent people will ignore your slides (& call2action buttons)
  • 21. Building your storyline & call-2-actions The first slides: Often I try to start with a remarkable image/ quote.
  • 22. Building your storyline & call-2-actions The first slides: Call to action already on slide 4.
  • 23. Building your storyline & call-2-actions The first slides: An overview of what to expect in this slide deck.
  • 24. Building your storyline & call-2-actions I apply the principle of “Give, Give, Give - Take.” I talk 3 times as much about others. All slides packed with links to other cases, 
 people & sources to follow, let other people shine!
  • 25. Building your storyline & call-2-actions e.g. Resources for Paper Prototyping but insert smaller links to other content we have: e.g. Free innovation posters to download
  • 26. Building your storyline & call-2-actions Insert full page, but relevant content linked to a product we sell. (e.g. Innovation Bootcamps)
  • 27. Building your storyline & call-2-actions 59 slides: Slides with relevant, hopefully inspiring content. Slides with links to other content of us (on blog, other decks,…) Slides with Call 2 actions to our commercial offering. Slides with general Call 2 actions to our twitter/website/…
  • 28. Building your storyline & call-2-actions 59 slides: Slides with relevant, hopefully inspiring content. Slides with links to other content of us (on blog, other decks,…) Slides with Call 2 actions to our commercial offering. Slides with general Call 2 actions to our twitter/website/… Slides to encourage sharing (e.g. via Pay-with-a-tweet)
  • 29. Create decks that are made to share img flickrcc
  • 30. Create decks that are made to share Use Pay-with-a-tweet + embed on our own blog When people want a PDF version of the deck, they are asked to share the deck on social media. A link refers back to our blogpost. Result:
  • 31. Create decks that are made to share Do you hate pay-with-a-tweet tools? This is not a perfect tool, I agree. But people can always see the full deck, for free (without sharing) online. In the end this just motivates me to create even more valuable decks later on. Share more to get more! I hope that one day Slideshare would offer an improved alternative. :)
  • 32. Don’t forget to add your twitter name in the title. Create decks that are made to share This will makes it easier to track shares (@mentions) online.
  • 33. Create decks that are made to share Often, I re-upload my presentation 10 times! People will spot better cases, typo’s,… They will help to spread your presentation if you take their feedback into account. updated version
  • 34. Create decks that are made to share Another example updated version I removed ‘2010’ 
 so it looks less outdated. I changed our call-2-actions
 to updated product pages. +
  • 35. Create decks that are made to share Recommended Plugin that I use to A/B test effective headlines Kingsumo Wordpress Headlines plugin (via @appsumo) I embed our slideshare in our own blogpost & experiment with 4-5 headlines. If a specific headline works better, I’ll update my slideshare later on with a new cover.
  • 36. Create decks that are made to share I try to make custom preview images that will show on Social media. A good Facebook thumbnail shows the full headline. On your own website (wordpress) you can set specific images that will be shown on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter,… but I don’t have good solution here. Most plugins to help you out are cr*p.
  • 37. Create decks that are made to share Slideshare has no option (yet) to select preview images for social media. As a result, Facebook cuts of 30% of your cover image (if shared on your company facebook page)
  • 38. Create decks that are made to share Slideshare has no option (yet) to select preview images for social media. Option A: upload a alternative preview img, when you share on your wall. But other people that share your deck will not do this!
  • 39. Create decks that are made to share Option B: design your cover, so it can handle some cropping.
  • 40. Create decks that are made to share It’s very hard to control what images will be shown on Facebook, twitter, Linkedin, other social media… Quick fix? Check the Facebook Debug tool & look for the image:og tag. Quick fix 2? Keep an eye on Optlook 
 by @ozguralaz. Their tool looks promising to help you out
  • 41. Create decks that are made to share At last, you need content worth sharing! Sounds obvious, but too many people just talk about Apple, Google & Amazon to make a point. Look for new cases & examples: Some of my sources for ‘niche’ content I follow via @feedly & @hootsuite www.producthunt.com - www.nextbigwhat.com www.techinasia.com - www.digitalintelligencetoday.com www.cdixon.org - tiltthewindmill.com www.dcurt.is - @bellebcooper
 @tijs, @baekdal, @ServiceSphere Anything to add?
  • 42. Launching & Seeding your slide deck img flickrcc 1 2 3 Launch in 3 waves!
  • 43. Launching & Seeding your slide deck img flickrcc Share your deck with your own channels - We have a 13K linkedin community - different twitter handles - our blog at boardofinnovaton.com - … Learn from the first feedback to improve your deck.
  • 44. Launching & Seeding your slide deck img flickrcc Notify the people mentioned in your slides. - Often I refer to startups & other experts - They have their own channels to push your deck to the next level - Make sure people @slideshare are aware of your new deck. (Slideshare of the day?) - ….
  • 45. Launching & Seeding your slide deck img flickrcc Try to grab the attention of the big blogs - but… only when there is traction already I will try to mail/alert authors at bigger platforms. - “25K views in 1 week!” is better than “look, I’ve just uploaded a slide deck 2 sec ago”
  • 46. What if you fail? img flickrcc
  • 47. Failed? after 2y only 15K views not a big success… Talking about the fact that we are hiring is just boring. This will only be relevant to a very small audience. after 2y only 11K views …
  • 48. Failed? If your slide deck doesn’t fly, don’t cry :) It’s always valuable to talk to people outside of your own team for honest feedback. “I got lost after slide 3” “There was nothing new in this deck…” “too many numbers!” … You quickly learn why this specific deck might have failed
 so you can improve your next presentation.
