Community members offer great tips

March 25, 2011

We really appreciate it when members of the SlideShare community take it upon themselves to write helpful how-to articles, curate collections of their favorite presentations, and give shout-outs to apps we've created. This week has been particularly fruitful, starting with Kristina Allen's guest post entitled "Top 5 SlideShare Marketing Tips," published on Jay Baer's blog, 'Convince & Connect'.
Kristina says, "I really love creating short (read: easily consumable) but informative Slideshares and then socializing them with my networks." Kristina describes how she uses visual metaphors in her slideshows, the importance of including a call-to-action, and other helpful tips. A special thanks to Jay Baer for publishing this article.

Our LinkedIn application has been available for a while now, but we appreciate this new article by Liane Cassavoy of PCWorld detailing its value for active job seekers. Aptly titled "SlideShare Presentations for LinkedIn Adds Interest to Job Networking," the article details how to access your SlideShare account from your LinkedIn profile. You can also embed links, share a presentation via email, and manage whether others can download your presentations.

If there's one thing we can't get enough of, it's collections of favorite slideshows from SlideShare users. In his article "10 Awesome SlideShares of Social Media Marketing," Koka Sexton says, "I appreciate all of the knowledge that is given away on Slideshare and here are a few of my favorite presentations of ways to use social media." You'll see a few of our fave social media presentations and some new ones, too. Thanks Koka, for putting this list together!
