One of the cool features about Slideshare is the ability to either share presentations via a link, or embed the presentation into a blog post or website.  Creating and uploading your own presentations is free once you setup your own account. It’s convenient to access your presentations and others online, but sharing is really where it’s at.

SlideShare is the world’s largest community for sharing presentations. With 60 million monthly visitors and 130 million page-views, it is amongst the most visited 200 websites in the world. Besides presentations, SlideShare also supports documents, PDFs, videos and recorded webinars.

Make sure you stop my My Slideshare Page (Slideshare.net/bandersohn) and help yourself to some of the presentations I’ve shared online while speaking at different events and venue’s around the country.

Too Many Words

7 Tips to Great PowerPoint Presentations

Have you ever seen a “GREAT” speaker or presenter, but their PowerPoint presentation sucked? Putting together a super impressive and memorable slideshow requires some time and effort if you really want to WOW your audience.

Too Many Words   Bad Color Combos   Boring Graphs and Charts

Many presenters, myself included, tend to lean toward having too much content, too many words, and typically way too many slides for those keynote opportunities. But there is so much information and so much to share right?

Yes, but putting all that information into a slideshow makes for good notes and key-points for us to remember and discuss, but it also turns a potentially awesome PowerPoint presentation into a failing disaster.

  • How important are color schemes?
  • Do you really think the font you’re using matters?
  • What about images, graphics, photos, and symbols?

Do these really have an impact on your PowerPoint slides and the effectiveness of your presentation? You bet they do. After reviewing these tips, your PowerPoint presentations will never be the same… and that’s a good thing!

Presentations are used everyday by millions of business professionals across the globe. Whether it’s an office meeting with 10 employees, a one-on-one listing presentation by a real estate agent to a homeowner, or a CEO speaking at a live seminar in front of 2000 people, the “Power Point” here is simple.

In every single case, your presentation should contain all the elements above that support and lead to your audience being sold on your idea, your service, your product, or whatever it is that you’re pitching, and not distracted, bored, and disgusted with your PowerPoint slideshow.
