Boost Your Traffic With SlideShare

Boost Your Traffic With SlideShare | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
SlideShare traffic is a brilliant source of leads! Let's find out how can this pretty ordinary service help with generating traffic?
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article from Curatti written by Will Sarto because it shows the powerful effect that a SlideShare presentation can have on Google ratings and website traffic.


Increase subscribers and leads with presentations that include targeted long-tail keyword phrases.


How to Use SlideShare to Improve Your Reach Online


Creating a standout presentation takes high quality content and eye-catching graphics. I agree that SlideShare can be a great addition to building traffic and drawing in a larger audience.


Sarto shows you exactly what makes a successful strategy in order to effectively reach the more 200 million viewers per month. And you don't need to be a professional designer to make this work.


Here's what caught my attention:


  • Start with a trending topic in your niche. Focus on what is of value to your audience in order to establish yourself as an expert in your industry.


  • Map out a marketing strategy before publishing your presentation. If you have a team get together with them first to gather ideas. Decide ahead of time how you will promote your final version.


  • Choose the right keywords and phrases for your target market. Make search easy for your viewers by including hashtags in your description.

17 Eye-Opening Examples of Content Visualization (Infographics)

17 Eye-Opening Examples of Content Visualization (Infographics) | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

 This fascinating piece is by Pamela Vaughan from Hubspot Blog.

Another way to help people cope with information overload is by using visual content. Great tool for content curators after filtering, organizing, adding context is to break it up with pictures, graphics or infographics.


Visualized content is popping up all over the web lately, and it's no surprise.

Here's what caught my attention:

"Does every piece of visual content you produce have to be as complex as a full-blown infographic? No way. And does every piece of visual content even have to highlight data? Negative.

****Sometimes the concept you're trying to explain just lends itself to a more visual representation, and these types of portrayals can often make the concept much easier to follow and understand by your audience

****the benefits of visual content are huge -- 

**it tends to be much more shareable and interesting

****visual content often gets spread more virally

****allowing you to extend the reach and effectiveness of your content.

What really caught my eye in the infographics:

I especially loved Social Media Transit Strategy and The Journey of A Tweet - what about you?

Your Next Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It Is… YouTube!

Your Next Mission, Should You Choose to Accept It Is… YouTube! | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

This piece was written by Ric Williams, COO of Empire Avenue. For those of you who are on Empire Avenue, you will want to hear about this news. For those of you who are not participating in this great social network, the following statistic effects everyone doing business on line.

****These predictions were not made by me, I choose to remain open, no matter what video will play an important role in how users consume content.

****By 2015, 90% of all internet traffic will be video.

****YouTube streams 3 Billion hours of video a month; that is 30 minutes of video for every man, woman and child on the planet. Wow!

Here's the takeaway for all you Empire Avenue fans:

**** It is becoming more difficult to drive people to your content and engage them just because of the sheer amount of content that is now on YouTube.

****Missions have proven incredibly powerful for driving engagement with online content, and this is just one way we’re improving the feature.

**This release will be the first of a few that we will release over the coming weeks with a similar theme, i.e. giving the creator traceability and help them to better engage people in their content.

My comments:

It's important to learn and understand how all these networks fit together, how significant video and Youtube will be in the years to come and what ways you can leverage this to grow and build your audience.  It's a learning curve for many but it's worth the time and effort.

In today's marketplace, you have to build community and good will, and Empire Avenue is one of many ways to do it.

Amirah Tucker's curator insight, March 10, 2014 9:30 PM

School systems should use YouTube as a way of instruction through online education.

Jennifer Okpara's curator insight, April 16, 2014 12:39 PM

I use Youtube for almost everything. For instance, I use Youtube to see how you do certain exercises, or for even baking things and most importantly watching music videos. Youtube is the longest site I have been using for information or to recap on old information.
