Top tips for getting the most out of Slideshare Slideshare is a great tool for sharing presentations, overviews of your key products and services and hints & tips from your industry. We have compiled our favourite 10 tips for getting the most out of the platform. Tip 1 - Choose a username that represents your business or your objectives well. Your company name should be used to build your brand, however if you are not building a brand name then a more search engine friendly name may be more appropriate. For example - compare slideshare.net/mybusinessname with slideshare.net/mykeyservices Tip 2 - Fully complete your profile. Ensure you have a branded image and your description contains relevant information and keywords -include your website URL. Tip 3 - Include your business name, web address and contact details within the first few slides - many people may not watch until the end but just to be on the safe side - ensure your business name, web address and contact details are on the final slide. Tip 4 - Keep presentations short – this means there is more chance of the viewer watching to the end…and more chance of them wanting to see more (i.e. go to your website!). Around 10-15 slides is a good number. Tip 5 - Ensure presentations are highly visual with minimal plain text. You need to keep your viewers attention – rows & rows of text will not do it so resist the temptation to overuse bullet points and long paragraphs. Tip 6 - Include a “call to action” at the end – encourage viewers to visit your website or phone you. Entice them with a free download – a report or whitepaper. Tip 7 - Ensure your Title is captivating and contains relevant keywords Tip 8 - Utilise tags for relevant keywords and key phrases (separate with a comma). This will help users of slideshare to find your presentations. Tip 9 - Make time to respond to any comments posted - this is a great way to create new relationships and an opportunity to cross-sell services. Tip 10 - Follow other users (there are some really clever people out there freely sharing information) and set your notifications to update you when a new presentation is added!
