In this episode, I share 5 ways to power up your presence on Slideshare, one of the hottest social media platforms for professional presentations. I’m in the top 5% of the most viewed presentations on Slideshare, so let me help you get noticed, too!
I love Slideshare. If you don’t know what Slideshare is, if you’ve never used it before, I’m sure you’ve seen a presentation. If you’ve seen a presentation, this is the online version of presentation powerhouse. It’s a great way to get what you have to say in a visual format, in a presentation up on line and in front of so many people. When Slideshare began, I think it was in 2006, October, they had a simple goal of just sharing knowledge online but since then, it’s really one of the largest communities for sharing presentations and other professional stuff besides presentations, like documents. It was founded in 2006 and LinkedIn bought it in 2012. So it took about 6 years for it to incubate and then LinkedIn really saw what its potential was.
Now the great thing about Slideshare is that, because LinkedIn owns it, you can really integrate it on your LinkedIn profile. Any presentations that you make, some infographics, your documents, videos, even webinars and pdfs can be integrated and shown on your profile.
