For this week’s social networking minute we will be discussing re-purposing content with Slideshare. Slideshare is the social network for slideshow presentations. A number of people use Slideshare for their LinkedIn presentations, but the site itself is a great source of traffic and information dissemination.
Taking a webinar presentation that I did last year on Facebook Fan Pages, I will upload it to Slideshare in one minute. Please note, that I did edit the slideshow before to be current. Total time, including editing and the Slideshare upload was 5 minutes. However, the upside is that I now have another piece of information out there with 5 minutes worth of work building traffic for my blog. Also this has a sales pitch at the end, so it has the potential bringing in clients as well.

Social Networking Minute SlideShare Analysis
Once you have one finished slideshow uploading future slides to Slideshare is extremely easy. Definitely spend a few minutes the first time using the process, but once you get the hang of it this is something that you can do with ease.
This has been your social networking minute of power and prestige with Slideshare.
Andy that is super cool. Now I have not really started to use Slideshare, so you do video of a powerpoint? I admit I am totally clueless about slideshare. I do a lot of live video though.
Slideshare is mostly for the powerpoints. However, I do turn a lot of powerpoint presentations into videos. A good example is send the powerpoint preso of a video to slideshare.
I love Slideshare 🙂
If you share your posts on Linkedin in multiple groups you stand a chance of getting on the Slideshare front page and getting more traffic 🙂
That is my next step to integrate it with LinkedIn. Thanks for the heads up!
I have been on slideshare for some time but have not really used it much.
I didn’t do much power point up until recently, now I see another place to share.
Great way to invest one minute!
Slideshare is one of the best ideas to come along in a while. I love to repurpose my things that I write and turn into slides. And when I do, it reaches a new group of people who were not at my event the first time.
It is one of the easiest to use social networking sites around, and truthfully your video tutorial takes away any last little leftover reason for not using this a resource for your business..
Thank you so much for your kind words! It is just a little extra boost to your social networking.
Great post Andy:) Love your slideshare video. I love using Slideshare but must admit I haven’t added audio to any of mine yet – you’ve just encouraged me to do so as it really does make a difference by having the audio.
Let me know what the results are.
I’m all for repurposing content. We bloggers work real hard at what we do. So why not be smart and get a lot more mileage out of the stuff we produce?
I’ve heard of Slideshare once before. Now I’m getting closer to actually using it. While slides by themselves are boring, recording a voice to go along with it makes it really come alive. Thanks for the inspiration. Time to go do it. 🙂
I need to clarify something. I took the audio out of the webinar before submitting the presentation. Some people want the audio, and others want the preso. When it is together I submit them on Youtube.
Hi Andy, thanks for this heads up, im still working on things for my slideshare account.
Great explanation of a very useful tool, Andy
I will definitely check out slideshare…. looks to be an excellent way to get your brand out there…
Let me know what you think of Slideshare!
