SlideShare: Deliver Visual Content that Gets Tons of Views

For the past few months, I’ve participated in Donna Moritz’s Visual Content Creators Facebook Group. (It’s a free, closed group — anyone can request to join.)

Donna, who’s the founder of Socially Sorted, challenges us to experiment with innovative ways to create and publish visual content.

Donna loves SlideShare, a platform owned by LinkedIn. The eight slide decks and three infographics Donna has uploaded to SlideShare have racked up over 454K views. Whoa!

Her latest SlideShare, which she created using Canva, is titled, “How to create an online course your audience will fall in love with.”

Donna told me, “It looks like it would take a long time but once you have a template set up in Canva, it’s not so long for the tip images, at least.”

Of her presentation, Donna says, “It’s cheeky and PACKED full of content advice from 19 experts.”

Use your own images in your SlideShare

You don’t have to use stock photos in your SlideShare presentation. Try using your own pictures! You’ll find loads of ideas in our post, 40 Stock Photos You Can Take Yourself.” Plus, you get a free printable of the entire article to use for reference!

Yep. I want the freebie.

  • What a great wrap Laura! Thanks so much … and glad you found it useful. I think that was one of the most fun slide decks I have had the pleasure of creating (maybe it was the retro pictures – you can get cheeky with them!).

  • Thanks, Donna. I appreciate you sharing a few of your trade secrets with us. I hadn’t considered using retro images, but since retro is different, it definitely catches (and holds) my attention. Your SlideShare has inspired to create my own SlideShare for a “mega” blog article I’m working on. But I think I’ll ask our graphic designer for help, as my graphic design skills are not the greatest, even with lots of assistance from Canva.
