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?
