SlideShare is the world’s largest presentation sharing community and constantly features interesting new slide decks. SlideShare also hand-curates three presentations that get featured on the homepage each day. Getting your presentation featured in front of all those people can have a huge impact increasing views, social traction and calls-to-action.
While it’s not an exact science, how can you get your new presentation featured on SlideShare?
1. Write a Powerful Headline
2. Create an Enticing Cover Page
The cover slide has to be an eye-popping image that brings a visual curiosity to your presentation. The opening slide and the title, are of the utmost importance.
3. Be Well-Designed and Informative
The design of a presentation is just as important as the content inside it. Without a great design, your content could get bypassed for something that looks more professional. According to SlideShare, “We look for presentations that are visual but also insightful and have a strong storyline.”
4. Keep us Engaged
Your goal is to make your deck so captivating that the audience has no choice but to click through to the end.
5. Fully Communicate Your Message
Your message should be short and sweet and aided with visual enhancements. A great way to communicate with others is to tell a story.
6. Tackle a Hot Topic
SlideShare features lots of timeless content that can be relevant for years to come. But they especially like to see presentations that tackle the lastest news, trends and buzz worthy topics.
7. Set Trends
