Today I want to talk to you about why slides rock. And what better way to do that than to show you a quick slide presentation?
Here’s why slides rock, and why you should make slide presentations for your business
Last year, I started a new series called Brown Bag Webinars. Every month, I host a live webinar on a different topic that’s designed to help people grow their businesses. These webinars are basically live slide presentations.
We’ve covered topics like websites, marketing, ebooks, using images to market your business, branding, color and more.
As a matter of fact, all the webinar are available to watch instantly right here on the website. To get a webinar replay, just click on Brown Bag Webinars in the navigation menu. Then fill in your email address for the webinar you want to see, and I’ll send you the link, plus any bonus materials I shared during the webinar.
Let’s get back to why slides rock. I’ve got four reasons to share with you, but there are a lot more.
Reason #1: Easy social media images
Your attention-getting slides can get you extra attention when you share them on social media like Google+, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Reason #2: Amplify your message on YouTube
It’s simple to record your slide presentation and share it on YouTube as a video. YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, and you want your business to be there. That’s exactly what I did with the video above.
Reason #3: Instant email marketing images
Slide images are perfect for your email marketing: use them to illustrate concepts you talk about and make your emails stand out in those inboxes. Because your slides will all have a similar graphic style (if you make them right, that is) they’ll look good when used together.
Reason #4: Animate your sales message
You can embed your slide shows on your sales page to show people what your product offers, and why it helps. It’s a simple way to animate your sales message for those who prefer to watch and not read.
This week’s question
Have you created and used slides before? If you have, were they for a live presentation, or for one of the uses I mentioned above?
