There’s a valuable online tool that can build your reputation and boost your fame factor. Best of all, it’s easy to use, versatile and completely free.
I’ll bet you’ve got content – items like powerpoint/keynote presentations, articles and graphics that would interest and amaze your ideal client – if only they knew about it. Deep in the recesses of your computer, you’ve got material that educates, demonstrates your process, shares your point of view. Unleash your brilliance on the world by sharing it on Slideshare!
Slideshare.net is an online slide hosting service, the world’s largest community for sharing presentations. You can upload PowerPoint and Keynote presentations, Word and PDF documents, and video to the site and then share it, publicly or privately.
How can sharing your material in an online community attract clients and build buzz for your business? Here are three awesome benefits that Slideshare can bestow on your business:
1. Establish your reputation. It’s a given that speaking is the best way to gain credibility and attract clients. Slideshare lets you demonstrate your expertise on a topic or start a movement by sharing presentations, videos, ebooks, or graphics that educate or inspire your target audience.
2. Help future clients find you. When you’re writing the description of your Slideshare presentation, be sure to use relevant keywords and phrases that your ideal client types into Google to get the kind of help that you offer. Once you’ve uploaded your material, it stays on Slideshare, gathering views and downloads (if you allow that) forever – the most popular presentation on the site has been viewed nearly 10 million times!
3. Share the love on your own website, too. One of the coolest features of Slideshare is that, after you’ve uploaded your document, you have the ability to embed the presentation on your own website (or anywhere you wish). Just click on the link labeled “embed”, copy the entire string of computer code and paste it on your own website. Voila, the presentation appears on your site, complete with its own player.
