SlideShare is a Web 2.0 based slide hosting service where users can upload presentation-based files. Launched in October 2006, it’s considered to be similar to YouTube, but for slideshows. It was originally meant to be used for businesses to share slides among employees more easily, but it has since expanded to also become a host of a large number of slides which are uploaded merely to entertain. SlideShare gets an estimated 58 million unique visitors a month and has about 16 million registered users.
With such a strong base, a Present Yourself: Using SlideShare to Grow Your Business shows how SlideShare users can use the site (including other similar collaborative sites such as Prezi and Scribd) to present their story to a worldwide audience.
While Death by PowerPoint is an epidemic; the book shows how you get use effective marketing principles and business trends and use online presentations for a better bottom line.
