How To Create A SlideShare Presentation

SlideSharesLast week I posted a SlideShare slide presentation to highlight the topic of my post, and one of my readers asked me how I made this slide show.

So, on this post I’m going to show you how it’s done with a step by step slide presentation and a video as well. But first…

What is SlideShare?

SlideShare is a presentation sharing site that was founded in October 2006, and which now receives 60 million visitors per month.  On November 2012 they hit a record of 159 pageviews for that month and their average is about 130 million monthly pageviews.  It’s one of the 200 websites most visited in the world.

Needless to say that being on SlideShare is not a waste of time. Since last week by doing absolutely nothing, but posting my one short slide presentation I’ve got 26 followers and 159 views. And again I’ve absolutely didn’t even try to do any kind of connections yet.

This tells me that by keeping on posting and actually getting involved with this thing tool, could bring me tons of positive results.

Interestingly, I was introduced to SlideShare over two years ago, but I after I posting a couple of slide presentations I kind of forgot all about it, and never used it again since last week.

Another excellent feature about SlideShare is that it ranks really well on search engines.

What can you Share on SlideShare?

You can upload PowerPoint documents, PDF documents, videos and webinars.  Once you’ve uploaded your document on SlideShare you’ll be able to share it anywhere like media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkeIn.  You can share you slide presentation on your blog like I’ve done right,  and any other Web 2.0 sites that you may be using.

In order to share it on your blog, all you have to do is copy and past the embedded HTML code just like for a video.



Why Using SlideShare?

SlideShare offers a quick and easy way to share quick tutorials and ideas that you put together, and it’s a great way to promote you and your online business.  There is no limit to the type of creative slide presentations you can share on SlideShare, and you have the potential to reach millions of people with it.

  1. Hi Sylviane,

    I’ve heard about slideshare all over the place. I keep reading about how it’s the next best way to create content and it gets a lot of attention. I haven’t tried it though, but your tutorial makes it look easy enough to do! I can see why it’s a good idea and why people like it. The visuals are fun and you can get a point across easily without a lot of text. Next time you put a recipe on your other blog I want a slideshare show with all those yummy pictures 🙂

    1. Hi Carol,

      Wow, thanks for this idea. Yes, a recipe with step pictures, what a great idea! I had not thought about it.

      I love SlideShare and it’s an easy way to promote your business and you. I was shocked how how many views I had on that little slide show that I did last week. I didn’t do anything for it, but uploaded it there. I didn’t even like any other slide presentation yet, or anything.

      You should try it. I’m sure you’ll love it 🙂 I sure will do more of them. Lot’s more!

  2. That was a great tutorial on creating a slideshare presentation Sylviane! I haven’t created one in years, okay it seems that long.

    I use to do those as another Web 2.0 property to get backlinks to my blog. I just never shared them on my blog but I know that there are so many people who prefer to learn differently so to give them all these different options is really the smartest way to go. It’s a lot of work though.

    Thanks though for this tutorial, you make it look so easy!

    Hey, enjoy your week okay! See you later.

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      I know what you mean. I hadn’t posted on there for over 2 years either, but as I used SlideShare last week I couldn’t help but see how it attracts visitors rather fast. 159 views in less than a week for my little last week slide. I thought, cool!

      So, I’ve got addicted now and Carol Lynn just gave me the idea to post recipes on slides. I love it and will do it!

      I’m sorry if the video makes it seem like a lot of work, it really isn’t. Especially if you don’t use pictures, but just color backgrounds. And it’s so much fun 🙂

      Hope you try it, Adrienne 🙂

      Thanks for your visit and have a great week too!

  3. Thanks for putting this together for us Sylviane! Now I’ve something to go by when I decide to create my first one, you instructions made it look so easy and user friendly and I love tools like that 🙂

    And I love the idea of embedding it in our blogs, definitely an eye-catcher.

    Thanks again Sylviane! Hope you’ve had a great day 🙂

    1. Hi Matthew,

      Well, I guess it’s great for content idea as well, but it’s certainly not the only or main reason I would use SlideShare as it is a excellent traffic source indeed.

      Thanks for coming and for your input.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I know that you are an expert with SlideShare, and you were actually the person who inspired me with this 🙂

      I know about this tool for over two years, but I haven’t used it but once or twice. Now I wish I did. But in any case I will be using it from now on.

      I have to check more of yours out 🙂 Thanks for coming, Lisa.

  4. Hi Sylviane, Wow, I had been hearing about SlideShare, but hadn’t learned about it yet. Not only did you tell me what it was and why I should use it, but also how to do it. Very cool!

    Loved the video that explained so clearly how to use SlideShare. I will have to give it a try.

    Thanks so much for these great tech tips!

    1. Hi Carolyn,

      Yes, you should definitely give it a try. I love SlideShare and it gets traffic like crazy.

      My video is not great as my camera was a bit acting up, but I guess people got the point. I’ve been aware of this tool for a while, but fail to use it, but I am definitely back with it and will use it regularly now.

      Thanks for coming by.

  5. Hi Sylviane,

    Great Share Sylviane.

    I heard about Slideshare and seen so many presentations using it but I thought it is much more complicated that it really is. It looks like a great tool that’s worth a try and the nice thing also is that it can be embedded in the blog.

    Also, thanks for the video tutorial. You really made it sound very easy and fun. You really did a great job explaining it Sylviane and BTW, I love your accent.

    Thanks Sylviane for this great share.

    1. Hi Neamat,

      Well here I am finally replying to some over due comments.

      Trust me it’s very easy to make presentations and uploading them on SlideShare and anybody can do it. I hope you’ll try it. It’s great for exposure and traffic.

      Ahah, I’m glad you like my accent. Thank you 🙂

  6. Hey Sylviane,

    I have heard about Slide Share, and, well you know how it is….You hear about something and NEVER get around to seeing what it’s all about. Here, you gave such a powerful instructional video. I thank you Girl!

    I can see the power of presentation with this, especially on our blogs. I’ve been using Keynote for my product. I was meaning to do that kind of blog post, but never got around to it. I see that Slideshare is not only more user friendly, but very pretty too!

    I do feel that this form of communication is an essential part of our business. People get tired of reading pillar posts and this is a great way to get reader’s interests.

    Now that you have done the excellent job of explaining how easy this is to use, It is on my to-do list.

    Many Many thanks,

    1. Hi Donna,

      Yes, you should try SlideShare. It’s easy and it does a great job in attracting traffic for sure.

      In this fast pace world with people browsing online with their phone, a slide presentation is ideal, even though I’m still partial the a long written post 🙂 but I know that some people aren’t 🙂

      I hope you’ll try it. I’m sure you will enjoy this tool.

    1. Hi Babanature,

      Do you mean that you haven’t got traffic from your slideshare presentation on SlideShare? If it’s the case, it could be due to lots of different reasons, but for me it has worked on it’s own, and I going to get much better and smarter with it and really try to drive traffic with this thing.

      Or maybe you were talking about something else.

      Thanks for coming 🙂

      1. Nope Sylviane, i am talking about slideshare. i have an account with them and so far, i have only gotten 150 views from them and that’s not traffic… But i am still trying to figure it all out so i can get that much traffic everyone is talking about. scribd is giving me good traffic though 😀

  7. Hey Sylviane,

    Great blog got to tell you, I’ll subscribe as soon I found that button, I like wp subscription or aweber,, getresponse but could not find any neither in your Feedburner.

    Thanks for this slideshare tutorial too. As a tip: I think you could cut 3 categories.

    Best regards from I . C Daniel – Romania

  8. Hi Sylviane,

    Just coming from your last post and seen you did a Slideshare slideshow too 😉 That’s a really cool move.

    Introduced over two years ago? 🙂 Gosh… I’ve been introduced by Lisa and I’ve seen how she doing with slideshows too. Pretty interesting for bloggers as those who can’t afford to make videos.

    Now interesting stats being revealed here. Slideshare gained more attention since it comes under LinkedIn and popularity grows everyday. I can see a lot of potential there 🙂 Now why shouldn’t we? We MUST.

    Oops… At last post I commented that hoping for more slideshows from you. Now here’s one again. I’ve enjoyed last one and now this one. Especially background images 😉

    How about using your painting in slideshow Sylviane? 😉 May be you will, nah?

  9. Thanks Sylvaine,
    Agree with Adrienne, you make it look easy!
    Having a little problem with hearing the video…think I have tooo much open on
    my computer..!
    I’m working on updating security on all my sites and found your comment
    where you let me know you did my requested post. Will come back later and
    Hard work…those plugins for security are a trip…found one I’m liking
    that only requires one other plugin to pair it with!
    What I like best about it is the video instructions go down the page
    and details what to check and why!
    Thanks, a very nice surprise! I don’t have Power Point on this computer
    so will have to improvise for the slices…have the free Open Office so I might be able to improvise!

    1. Hi Sylviane,

      Was trying to remember how to do this. I have almost mastered making slides with OpenOffice so was ready to do a slide share for an article I’m writing.

      I so appreciate this post and your work. Especially the very instructive video.
      Think I’ll embed it somewhere so I can make finding it easier..Ahh went and looked, it is on Youtube so I’ll just add it to a playlist on my account…
      Again, Thank You for sharing with me!

    1. Hey Sonia,

      Well, I can’t wait to see the ones that you are going to make. It takes a little bit of time, like anything else, but it’s well worth it, because people love those slideshares and share them like crazy. Another source fo traffice, right?

    I really enjoy the slideshare and I think it is really cool.I use to be more creative with slideshare in coming days.

    Thanks for this great share.Have a great week ahead.


  12. Hi Sylviane

    Slideshare looks a great resource, thanks. I have a PowerPoint document and was wondering what to do with it…. Now I know. Although for various reasons that’s a longer-term project.

    However, you’ve also given me some ideas that could be implemented earlier.

    Thanks for letting me know about this.
