Till now, SlideShare has been primarily for presentations. Yes, we accept whitepapers and regular ol’ documents as well, but presentations have a special place in our heart.
The question that many of you have been asking is: “What about my video talks, webinars, screencasts and demos? They are scattered all over the web. I embed them as YouTube videos into presentations. Can I post them directly to SlideShare?”
Here is the answer: Bring on the videos of the talks, the webinars, the demos, the screencasts, and the product pitches.
SlideShare wants to help you share them all.
Today, we are launching support for video and creating a place on the internet for professionals to share video. No, this is not for music, TV shows, and videos of your puppy. Yes, this is for all sorts of professional videos – whether a creative way to explain a concept, sell a product or inspire an audience.
Video is a powerful medium for communicating complex topics, and conveying and eliciting emotions. Knowing the SlideShare community, we are sure creative ideas for how to work with business video are about to happen. We are excited to see where you will take this.
If you are sharing video for your business, you can also capture leads on it using LeadShare (more on that in a followup post).
Here are FAQs about sharing videos on SlideShare.
