What Is SlideShare and How You Can Use It

SlideShare is a social media site ‐ one of the many but also one of the best. However, unlike Twitter or Facebook, you don't share (only) messages - you share presentations instead. Presentations have been used for business and personal needs for decades and they are a popular way to express yourself visually.

On SlideShare you can upload your presentation and if it gets popular, it can be viewed by millions of people. If you know how to make the presentation, you can not only get traffic to your site, but you can also improve your rankings with Google, expand your followship on sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc., attract more subscribers to your newsletter, or boost your brand/reputation online.

If used properly, SlideShare can really do a great job. Here are some tips how to make the most of SlideShare.

Tip 1: Good title

Nowaday, instead of using keywords for article title, the title of the file, or the video title you should create catchy title.

For example if the keyword is phone interview questions. You can post a topic: Top 10 phone interview questions and answers pdf

Tip 2: Upload Only Quality Presentations

The most important rule for success on SlideShare is that your presentations must be of the highest quality only ‐ no exceptions here. This applies not only to content but also to design, so if you feel you lack the skills to create a rocking presentation, you'd better hire somebody else to do it for you, than upload presentations with poor quality.

As for content, usually the most popular presentations are either something sensational, or something incredibly useful, or something that plays with readers' emotions. Still, if your presentation falls in one of these three groups, this isn't a guarantee it will become popular.

When you prepare your presentation, you might want to make it a bit more sensational by exaggeration. Needless to say, this is a very wrong approach and it can turn against you. Your presentations need to be honest and true - don't exaggerate, don't overhype because this will only make users distrust you.

As for the form of the presentation, it is best to save it as PDF rather than .PPS because with so many devices you never know how a .PPS will look like. PDF looks always the same, so stick with it.

Tip 3: Size format

Must be powerpoint file, using landscape (do not use portrait option).

If you want to upload by pdf file, you should creat ppt file first then convert it to pdf version.

To display in good manner, you must add font size: minimum 20

Tip 4: Keep Your Structure Simple and Your Points Short

Remember, this is a presentation, not a novel, so you don't have enough space for complex structures and/or lengthy explanations. Keep your structure simple to follow and your points short ‐ this is the recipe for a successful presentation. Additionally, use large font sizes for the text and try not to include more than 7 lines of text per slide.

Tip 5: Add Youtube videos to your slide

The “Add Video” tab is right next to the video feature.

This is best way to promote your video

also to improve slide time on site.

Tip 6: Get embedded on other blogs

Another way to bring SlideShare traffic back to your blog is by getting your presentation embedded on other sites.

Embeds bring traffic. You saw it from the screenshots above.

How do you get your SlideShare presentation embedded on other blogs?

Two ways:

Either by getting featured on the home page and catching attention from other SlideShare users or
by embedding the SlideShare presentation on your blog and encouraging your readers to do the same.
Making it easy goes a long way.

Tip 7: Other promoting methods

You can share your slideshare url to Reddit, Facebook groups, social accounts

Tip 8: Make the Design of Your Presentation Outstanding

We already mentioned that your presentation must be of supreme quality. Content is important but when it's not packaged in an attractive cover, users won't pay much attention to it. This is why you need to make your presentation visually attractive. Make a very attractive starting slide because this draws lots of attention.

However, be careful not to overdose. Your presentation must be not only attractive but it also must be stylish. To achieve this, don't overload it with effects because this will make it cluttered and/or heavy to open.

Tip 9: Include a Call to Action to Convert Viewers

After the third page in your slide deck, you can include links. And those links still work even if your presentation is embedded on another blog. Use those links to ask your audience if they want to download a PDF of the full article that your presentation is based on. Maybe suggest they join a course on the subject that your SlideShare is about.
