The best SlideShare presentations of 2014


Let these presentations, deemed the best by SlideShare, serve as inspiration for the ones you’ll create this year.

I’m a fan of SlideShare for sharing presentations.

Because SlideShare uniquely combines images and text, it is ideal for encouraging sharing. It also makes it easy to embed the content into other social networks, particularly LinkedIn (SlideShare’s parent company).

The must-read SlideShares of 2014

Users created more than 4.2 million SlideShare presentations last year. The good people at SlideShare picked several dozen to include in “The Must-Read SlideShares of 2014.” Take a look at them to get thinking about how you can create an awesome SlideShare in 2015:

I’m honored that SlideShare included my presentation, “The New Rules of Selling.”

As I write this, “The New Rules of Selling,” which I published to showcase the ideas in my newest book, The New Rules of Sales and Service: How to Use Agile Selling, Real-Time Customer Engagement, Big Data, Content, and Storytelling to Grow Your Business, has more than 150,000 views.

The power of SlideShare for social sharing

Last September, I detailed what I learned about SlideShare in a blog post titled “The power of SlideShare for social sharing.” I shared six lessons for those creating their own SlideShare. Check out the post for details on each of the six lessons:

  1. Focus on what you give away free on the Web, not the product you sell
  2. Put out your best work for free
  3. SlideShare is an amazing platform for social sharing
  4. People look for content to showcase on their sites
  5. You need a great design
  6. One idea per slide

Here’s to a great content-rich 2015!
