The Benefits of Using SlideShare for a Business

SlideShare is another form of sharing content. It’s purpose acts like a PowerPoint presentation with an easy to use click through slideshow that displays your intended content all in one place for all to see. The most common forms of SlideShares are presentations, blogs, and how to guides, but are not limited to solely one type of content. What makes these guides so user friendly is the convenience of these slides. Since they are located all in one place, a person can flip through the entire SlideShare while staying on the same page. All the information is presented on one page outlining all the content so none gets overlooked.

What are the benefits to me?

Provides Sharable Content

Assuming that the written content is up to par and your presentation has appropriate images that match, your SlideShare will be a popular and sharable item. People love something that is easy to read and will be more likely to share it if they find it valuable or fun. Let’s be honest, using only a click of the mouse to view each slide is fun and interactive for many making a SlideShare easily sharable. It’s even written in the name! With the correct branding and use of their business’ name, they can use this tool to get their name out there while bringing in new business.

Appeals to a Person’s Sense of Imagery

The imagery used in each SlideShare allows for a more pleasant experience of getting your content noticed. In a visual world, using photos and icons to describe your main points will be more noticeable than scrolling through a list of texts. Imagery does not need to be limited to photos, but can also be the text itself written in a unique way that stands out by emphasizing the key words or concepts.

Acts as a Timesaver

With the increasing number of blogs, how do you find time to read all the blogs pertinent to your company? It’s impossible to try and read everything and you shouldn’t have to as long as you can read a few good blogs that will give you insights and tips in your industry. You can save time and read more by mixing it up and spending some of the time viewing a SlideShare as your quick read for the day. You will find that you are able to read it and move on the next in a matter of a few minutes saving you time in your day to dedicate to your business.
