    I love Slideshare and Linkedin has an app where you can add Slideshare to your profile which is another great way to make those important connections. Thanks Lilach for sharing all the tips on Slideshare, and especially turning your presentations into eBooks is a great idea!!

    This is really cool Lilah! I am going to open an account. I have a few powerpoint presentations that I was trying to convert to iMovie an turn them into movies, but I think this may be better! Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks David – yep another task to add the to the list! But it is actually very simple and quick to do, particularly if you already have some PowerPoint presentations created.

    This is almost completely out of my ways to attract traffic to my site, but since you presented it well, I am now considering signing up for an account in Slideshare ASAP. So far, I have been busy with exploiting profile pages of social sharing and networking sites out there, but this one with Slideshare is simply brilliant. Thanks for sharing!

    Great article Lilach – slideshare is easy to overlook but like you said it is a valuable resource for marketing as well as providing value to your visitors and subscribers and much much more. We upload and share the slides of our guest experts after each webshow and have had some really good view numbers and of course giving a link back to subscribeto the show to get the audio/video replay is great marketing. Like some of your other ideas and will definitely be implementing them :-)

      Thanks Susan:) You’re right many people do overlook Slideshare but as you say it really is a valuable resource which not only can generate traffic but is a great alternative way to share valuable content:) I haven’t added audio to mine yet so will be looking at doing that in the future:)

  9. Lilach,

    That is funny that you were mentioning Slideshare today. I was just thinking it has been a long time, since my last presentation. Great tips for my next one.

  10. Wow…I knew of Slideshare and have visited the site before but didn’t really think of it as a powerful tool. I figured it was more for Corporate America. Now I realize how much more powerful it can be. Thank you for the tips on how to use it well. That will help me as I choose new strategies for 2012. And this is definitely one to look at.

      Thanks VaNessa:) Yes Slideshare is one of those tools that is less talked about but really is a powerful site that not only helps for traffic but makes it more interesting to showcase your content.

  11. Lilach, this looks like a great way to build you brand and share what you do and how to do. Differently something to look into. Thanks Ryan

  12. Stacy says:

    Hi Lilach,

    That looks like a fantastic tool, I love how you shared a slide on the post to give a visual of how it works! Thank you for sharing. I can see how that can be very useful on many levels! I know that you suggested turning slides into ebooks but I think I will go the other way, turning my ebooks into slides for this! :)

    Hi Lilach, I came across Slideshare a few weeks back but did not give it a huge amount of thought, seems I was wrong and need to re-evaluate it’s usefulness.

    Thanks for the tips.

    Keep moving forward.

  15. Wow Lilach! I never heard of Slideshare until now. You’ve introduced me to a lot of useful tools and tips, and I appreciate you for that. I can think of many ways to use Slideshare as I like to do live workshops. My favorite way to use it would to embed audio. I think audio is what make the slides come alive. I’ve added Slideshare to my list of things to explore. Will let you know what I find. Cheers!

      Thanks Srinivas:) I’m sure Slideshare would be perfect for your workshops. To be honest that’s the reason why I created the above presentation, I used it for a workshop and then converted into Slideshare. I haven’t combined them with audio yet but I’ll definitely be exploring that as I think that’s a great idea. Enjoy:)

  16. I’ve had an account with SlideShare for some time now … every once in awhile I visit the site to check out the presentations, maybe get some ideas where my stuff might fit in. I see a lot of presentations for business and marketing, and many in foreign languages … very little for personal development – my niche. And you know what they say, if there’s no competion there’s a reason. Still, I’m always looking for new opportunities to expand my reach so you’ve inspired me to give it another look. Thanks!

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Marquita. I’ve seen lots of Slideshares for personal development… I think it could work really well for you as it’s a great way to share content, it certainly makes a nice change than having plain text as a blog post plus Slideshare is a great way to drive traffic back to your website:)

  17. Allie says:

    I have heard of Slideshare but never really checked it out. I know it can be a great way to get traffic, like you said. But before I ever use anything online, even free, I try to get a recommendation from someone I trust. Now I have one.

    And also, thanks for the details. Sometimes websites don’t give you a lot of what you need as a blogger. They just give general info.

  18. Kostas says:

    Wow, that’s a great way to get traffic, until now I used to convert article to videos and upload them to youtube (which is great way to get traffic and actually rank better on search engines) but making slides seems much easier and less time consuming. I will certainly start making presentations and share them on Slideshare. Thanks for this great tip Lilach…

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Kostas:) Well I think what you’re doing now is a great way to drive traffic, video marketing and in particular YouTube is a very powerful website. But the beauty and what I love about Slideshare is it’s so simple, you’re literally uploading your PowerPoint presentation and it’s done! If you’re already converting articles to video then it’s definitely worth it for you to convert the article into a presentation:)

  19. Alan Cheng says:

    Lilach,

    Fantastic tips you have here. I have a Slideshare account but haven’t used it for a year now.

    I did get traffic and also some subscribers from several of my presentations and videos, but stopped. Not sure why but I suspect some other traffic generation technique got my attention.

    Thanks for this post, I will check it out again.
    Twitter:

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Alan:) Yes there are so many sites out there it can be a little overwhelming. I find that I have a system where I try and duplicate my content, so for example, convert my PowerPoint into a video and upload it to the video sites and also Slideshare, makes it a lot easier and hassle free plus of course saves time:)

  20. Hi Lilach, Thanks for sharing Slideshare with us. I had never heard of it before, but it sounds like a really useful and effective tool, so I will definately be checking it out.
    Rachel

  21. Hi Lilach,

    I love visiting blogs because I learn so much from other bloggers. I have never heard of Slideshare. Looks like it would be a useful tool for gaining exposure and driving traffic to our blogs. It was a good idea to include a demo of Slideshare for those of us who are unfamiliar with it. Way to go!
    Twitter:

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Jamella, appreciate your comment:) Yes I thought it would be useful to show one of my own Slideshares, it’s a lot easier to see it in action I find!

      I hope you check it out and try it for yourself:)

  22. Thanks Lilach. This is definitely a way to increase traffic to our blogs / websites.

  24. Lilach,
    I must admit I have never hear of content curation. So I haven’t used anyy plug-ins, but I am curious other than providing great condensed info atone source. Why will content curation  help increase traffic to your blog/website?
    ~Becca
    Twitter:

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Rebecca. Content Curation tools are great for traffic. I get a lot of traffic from Paper.li and Scoop.it The beauty of it is that it takes my content and others too and if it’s on Twitter I then retweet the paper and most people who are included in the Paper will also retweet it, this way more people get to see the Paper and how your traffic increases.

  25. Hi Lilach,

    You do write some very interesting Blog posts! I too had never heard of Slideshare, but now have added it to my list of tools to investigate. Thank you for this post.

  28. This is a great piece on Slideshare Lilach. I have used Slideshare for my customers using strong SEO techniques for ranking and backlinks. The thing is there are maybe 7 more sites like Slideshare that work well also.

    Now here is the funny thing I have never used Slidehshare for my own use. As with many of us in marketing we are so involved in our customers we do not use the same practices for our companies. But I will create a PP and post on Slideshare in the near future.

  29. Thanks for recommending this method of traffic generation. I’ve never heard of it before and I don’t understand why, it sounds like something that should be more popular. Maybe some gurus just don’t want to give away their most precious secrets, or the more obvious reason: I just didn’t come across the information. But I think now is the right time to incorporate it into my plans. thank you for helping with such a well written and informative article! Kindest regards, Leonard

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Leonard:) I think there are many different traffic methods and a lot of people just concentrate on the most popular ones like Facebook, Twitter, Ezine Articles etc. But Slideshare can be just as effective as them if done well.
      Twitter:

  30. Nice post, and Lilach thanks for the follow on twitter ;-)
    Slideshare also has the function to embed YouTube videos into presentations at your choice of position (before slide 1, after slide 10 etc) which delivers another way to drive your marketing message home but also adapt to your current message or focus.

    I used slideshare to share few slides with my blog readers. But I never used it as a tool to bring traffic to my blog. After reading your article I got an idea to make traffic from slideshare too.

    Thanks for publishing this great post.

  32. Thanks for the post.
    I uploaded a PP 2 days ago; (http://slidesha.re/LKpbzZ) added the SS app to my LI account; and, got an e-mail from SS that I have already had over 100 views! I did add a call to action at the end: a free download if you pay with a tweet (not sure if that has worked yet) (http://www.paywithatweet.com/).
    Gotta love the internet!
    Take care,
