This is a handy tip to convert your content to the popular presentation sharing platform, Slideshare. It will allow you to add more content to Slideshare and gain more exposure.
Bill Gassett shared his way on Google+, but I have found a quicker way to do this. To see how he does it, click on the article link at the end of this post.
I suggest that you create an Slideshare account if you are not on the platform. You can do this by signing in using an email or the easier way is by using your LinkedIn or Facebook account to log in. Here is how to do it:
Converting Web Articles or Blog Posts to a Slideshare Presentation
The Quickest Way I Know
- Select the web article or blog post that you want on Slideshare
- Highlight the article (from start to end)
- Right click to bring up the Menu and select Print (print preview screen should appear)
- At print preview window, go to Destination and Change it to Save as PDF to hard drive
- Go to your Slideshare account and hit the upload button
- Upload your PDF file to create your Slideshare presentation
Ensure that the articles you want to place on Slideshare are yours and not someone elses.
This technique works for Laptops and PC’s. For mobile devices like smartphones, you need to hit the Menu button to bring up the print function. You would then need to use Wi-Fi to continue with print preview function. If your site allows the articles to be downloaded as a PDF file, even better.
Converting Documents to a Slideshare Presentation
- Select the document you want
For Microsoft Documents
- Open document and Save as a PDF file
- OR choose Print Preview to change the Destination to PDF
For Google Documents
- Select Print and change the destination to PDF
- OR go to File and select Download as and then PDF Document
- Go to Slideshare and hit the upload button
- Upload your PDF file to create the Slideshare presentation
I suggest that you only convert some of your articles on to Slideshare. You will view documents and articles as pages, not slides, on the platform. Also remember that this is a presentation platform and not a website. Now that you know how to place these type of content on to Slideshare, are you going to try it? What type of content will you put on your account? Will you include this in your social media content strategy?

Thanks for your comment Isabella. The reason I recognize these individuals is because they offered to share some insight into how to do these things. It’s easy to take credit for something but it’s harder to admit that these people helped you. I guess I’m doing the hard way. 🙂
I appreciate looking at your websites. Cheers!

I am not sure where you are getting your information, but good topic.
I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.
Thanks for magnificent info I was looking for this info for my
Nathan, I get most of my information from working on these platforms. I write about this due to the fact that no one told me how to do these things or would give only slight hints on how to do it. It was frustrating. So I decided to learn how to do it so that I could share it with the public. People may say that I’m stupid in letting other people know how to do these things but that’s not my style. I want people to learn these skills so they can improve and share it with others.
My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for.
Does one offer guest writers to write content

I enjoyed your comment Tia and I thank you for your offer of contributing to this web log. I will probably accept contributions in the next 6 months but at this stage I won’t.
