Put A Power Point Presentation On Your Website Or Blog Post In 3 Easy Steps

Power Point Emedded On WebsiteOften when you think about content for your website you don’t think about a Power Point presentation. 

However, I am going to show you a quick tutorial for how to add a Power Point slide presentation to your website.  I am also going to show you how to do this for free, even if you do not currently have Power Point or even a PC.

Before I get into this; what are the benefits of having a small presentation on your site?

#1.  Content Variation

It breaks up the monotony of the atypical article content most of us use.  Just like how images, videos, and info-graphics add a new element to your website, so will presentations.

Having a variety of content on you website will get your audience to engage more and stay on your website longer and become a returning visitor.  This leads to more opportunity to see your ads and buy something from you.

#2.  Say More With Less

Power Point can make it easy for us to bullet benefits of certain product promotions.   I.e. if you’re running a review site you could create small presentations on the good and bad of each product.  Not only will it stand out for your visitor, it looks nice and provides an easy way to draw attention to the sale.

These do not have to be massive write-ups just a slide of bullets with brief explanations.

 If you hate writing it can sometimes be a huge time saver.  I’m not advocating that this should be your only content, but, more of a supplement.

O.K. let’s get started. 

Step 1:  Get Power Point

First, you need Power Point.  But, if you don’t have Windows or you’re running a Mac you’re not out of luck.  Microsoft’s Skydrive will let you do this for free.  I’ve been doing some cool stuff with Skydrive recently and it earns two thumbs up from me.

Next, create a Power Point slide presentation.  Below you can see a demo of one a mine:

As you’ll notice Power Point doesn’t need a ton of slides to be educational and you can add images to help illustrate your points even easier.  Often times I spend a couple dollars on images at Fotolia.com when I need something.

After you create your Power Point slide just save it to your computer in a location that you will not lose it at.

Step #2:  Get Slide Share (2 minutes)

There is a cool site called Slide Share that will allow you to share your new presentation anywhere that will allow it, including your website.  Sign up for free here.  Be sure to go through the few steps they require for setting up an account.

Next, upload your Power Point presentation.  Below I show you how to do this step by step.

Step #3:  Add & Embed Your Presentation

Done!  Now you can save your post and check to see how it looks.

Final Notes and Tips

With Power Point you can insert links, including affiliate links.

When you upload your presentation to Slide Share it will find these links and they are also clickable.

You will get traffic from Slide Share itself! 

Earlier I mentioned optimizing your presentation just like you would a blog post because it can be found in the search engines.  Well, from links in your presentation you can guide people your way.  See my demo above.

Video can be added to your presentation as well right inside Slide Share’s dashboard.  I’ll let you experiment with this feature yourself, but, it’s a good place to get view on your Youtube videos as well.

These presentations can be easily shared on Google+, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as well.

Great post Michael, I just put one of my sites into maintenance mode and experimenting with presentations. 

However I don't use the products from Microsoft, but in this case I use Google Docs which is also great for making presentations and can share it directly using iframe on my posts.

Have you tried it ? If so, what do you prefer?

Thanks Ferry!

Yep you can use Google Docs to create your PowerPoint.  I haven’t shared a Google doc directly using an Iframe as I prefer using Slideshare to present my presentation.  Let me know how it works out for you though.

Google Docs is a bit simple but can still be effective. Don't know if you allow links here on your blog but on http://www.black-seed-oil.com/ I've inserted  a presentationunderneath my homepage. There was a lot of text at first which I was able to insert it shortened in the presentation using bulletins. You can also use call to actions shapes in the presentation with an affiliate link.

I tried converting the Google docs into slideshare and sliderocket but it gave an error while converting even if it's ppt format so that's probably the only bad thing and not being able to get traffic from google docs itself like slideshare does but still I think I will keep on using Google docs for a while since it's free and effective enough for me.
