Are you thinking slide presentation are very old way of promoting and now,its age of social networking so FB or Twitter is enough for your blog? If yes then just take a look at the below infographic.
It is a small part of the complete infographic from Slideshare, you can see the complete one here.
If you are a serious blogger then I don`t think you will skip advantages of Slideshare!
So lets get started, learning few important things about Slideshare advantages.
Can you really get 10000+ of Page Views in a Month?
Yes, if you work smartly you can easily get it. Because working hard is of no use when you don`t act smartly
And it is not a one time short, as we all knew getting traffic needs work with patience! Here in this case it is same.
Ok now, let me give one example of a person who made it. He is davidcrandall, in 2011 he released this project. Just in few days after publishing he got 20,000 views on his slide. From then David started posting slides consistently and all of them got 20,000 – 30,000 views in few days. (this part is from Problogger)
You can see that when his slide is getting 1000s of view in few days how much it can make his blog in a month.
So how he got it?
I think is his slide made in to fist page of Slideshare because of optimizing and it went viral because of its awesome design.
How Can We Achieve it?
It all starts from selecting a topic, and images you are going to make into presentation. So first thing which comes is design.
Your design must be attractive at the same time should resemble your niche. Lets say you have photography blog, so when a user sees your slide he need to understand easily that, ho! this is photographs slide.
So designing is important here, if you are new no need to worry just try with simple slides. And remember be straight forward to your users. Users don`t have time to read your slide if you have long passages. Make it short and to the point.
Ok, now let me give one such example who had just started making slides and got tremendous results, he is Onibalusi.
Here is his first slide! Go through it. And see how many views it got.
I gave you two real people examples one who got in 2011 other who just started in 2012, so now I think you too got confidence that you can do it.
