Repurpose Your Content Using Slideshare

Last weekend I decided to finally get round to looking at Slideshare to see how I could attract some new followers to my blogs and websites. It had been on my list of things to do for some time. I created a presentation entitled ‘Do’s & Dont’s of eBook Formatting‘, I repurposed the blog post of the same name and the presentation ended up receiving quite a bit of traffic. So far I’ve had close to 300 views, and I received emails from Slideshare saying the presentation was ranking high on Facebook and LinkedIn.


So what is Slideshare?

“SlideShare is the world’s largest community for sharing presentations. With 60 million monthly visitors and 130 million pageviews, it is amongst the most visited 200 websites in the world. Besides presentations, SlideShare also supports documents, PDFs, videos and webinars.”

Some things that you can do on SlideShare

  • Upload presentations publicly or privately
  • Download presentations on any topic and reuse or remix
  • Embed on blogs, websites, company intranets
  • Share on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn
  • Zipcast: free, no download, 1 click web meetings
  • Leadshare: generate business leads with your presentations, documents, pdfs, videos
  • Slidecast: sync mp3 audio with slides to create a webinar
  • Embed YouTube videos inside SlideShare presentations
  • Use SlideShare PRO for premium features like branded channels, analytics, ad free pages etc
Not only can you do the above, but you can also upload documents, PDF’s in particular. I decided that it would be a good place to upload my free eBook ‘3 Key Benefits of Using a Virtual Assistant’, see below. This particular upload hasn’t attracted the number of views that my other presentation received, but I feel that testing the waters with this has been worthwhile. I think presentations with clear points is the best way of getting views, and this is what I’ll be concentrating on for future presentations.

Slideshare: 3 Key Benefits of Using a Virtual Assistant


Do you have any presentations gathering dust on your computer? Why not have a look and see if any can be updated and improved upon, and then upload them to Slideshare. If you’re an expert in your field, uploading your best presentations to something like Slideshare can only increase your following and who knows get you more leads and ultimately more sales.
Starting next week I will be publishing a series of specific articles on how a virtual assistant can help you save time, money and help you accomplish more. These articles will be on a specific task which a virtual assistant can help you with. I would like your help, please answer this question…

What would be your number one task that you’d love a virtual assistant
to do for you if money were no object?

Please let me know in the comments so I can align my articles to those who would benefit from them most. Thank you in advance!



  1. Wow – great results from your presentation. That is on my “To Do” list too – but then, there are so many things on my list that I’m like a rabbit in the headlights not knowing what to do next. Creating a presentation has just moved up the priority list though after this.

  2. Thanks for making a blog about it. Slideshare is very helpful for me for my researches in different fields and I am hearing a lot of positive feedbacks especially from scholars. I think this site is more generous than its counterparts Scribd which is very similar. Anyway, there are also negative sides for this sides and it was now infested by bogus documents.

  3. Thanks for this, Jo – I’ll save it as a bookmark as I think we could make use of it at some stage. :)
