How to Use SlideShare for Shameless Word of Mouth Self-Promotion

SlideShare is like YouTube for PowerPoint. 

Upload a presentation, share it, forward it.  Your presentation has all the viral power of a YouTube video – share it with groups, post it to your blog, etc.  Take one look at you’ll understand.

Slideshare is also becoming an amazing repository of business content. Conference organizers are uploading the dozens of presentations at a time.  Check out John Moore’s book reviews, lessons from iPhone’s user interface, or Best Practices for Form Design.

For us dorky executives who aren’t cool enough to be starts on YouTube or MySpace — this is the place for us!

    SlideShare: YouTube for Nerds

    I’m all about SlideShare this week — it’s YouTube for PowerPoint, and it’s totally awesome for those of us in business or school who are living in a slideshow world. I’m definitely not hip enough to be the #1 kid

    What a neat idea! Except I have a slight conflict.
    If you’re going to upload presentations to this service, they’d better be created specifically for the purpose. I’m a fan of Seth Godin’s ‘really bad PowerPoint’ and have sat through far too many ‘death by PowerPoint presentations’ to think otherwise.
    Too many presenters have made the presentation all about PowerPoint, all about the slides, rather than all about what they are saying.
    A presentation created to support the presenter, not to make the presentation itself is just not going to work here.
    Still, used in the right way it’s v. cool.
