I’ve been using a tool called Slideshare ever since a group asked if they could share one of my presentations with attendees about a year ago.
The service allows you to upload PowerPoint and PDF slide decks and then converts them to a player that can be tagged and made public.
Recently, they also added something called Slidecasts, which allow you to also upload and sync an audio file to create an entire online presentation if you like. As you see below, you can also embed the slides on a web page or blog. There are other ways to accomplish this same thing with the use of Camtasia or iMovie, but this one is really simple.
Another thing I love about the site is that it’s a wealth of inspiration for what to do and what not to do when it comes to slide presentation design and content.
If you present workshops, seminars, or just your latest ideas as a small business owner or marketer, I would like to invite you to join a group I’ve formed on Slideshare just for small business presenters. Join the group and upload, share and comment great small business presentations in an effort to get better at this key marketing skill.
