Over the past few days I've been looking into slideshare.net and how I could make some money off of this platform. I knew that I had to upload a power point presentation which is basically a bunch of images laid out in a way to increase my click throughs in order to make a sale, but that's pretty obvious.
What I didn't know how to do was get a power point presentation set up in a quick amount of time, make it look professional, and do it for as little of an an investment as possible.
Now I could easily pay someone $15 to $20 to set up a decent looking presentation and then I upload it to my slideshare account which will also post to my linkedin account because they are joined together But what if I wanted to post 10 different presentations and target 10 different keywords? That would cost me at least $150 and I wouldn't really have any control on how the presentation would look. Sure I could tell the person what I wanted, but it's never EXACTLY what I wanted. If I'm paying a premium, I want what is in my imagination lol
So in the end I did a little digging and was looking for some free power point templates, which all came up to be horrible which I kind of thought they would be. But I was hoping to find at least one gem in the pile of garbage lol.
I finally found a website called slidemodel.com and you can pretty much download a presentation and edit the content to say whatever you want. After browsing through their selection I actually noticed a few of the presentations they offer are on slidshare.net right now getting a massive amount of views, so that was a selling point right there lol
There's no branding on the slidemodel downloads after you're a member, which is great because I don't want to pay for a service and have them put their labels on everything lol
The pricing for slidemodel is very reasonable, below is a screenshot of their pricing structure.
You'll most likely have to right click on the image and select "view image" so that you can read the small text if your eyes are great.
The pricing seems that they get a lot of people who come to them at the last moment and need a great power point presentation for their job. Why else would you charge $24 a month for the basic package when you could spend $96 and get it for the entire year
I would think that if you're getting serious about slideshare.net you would be good with the premium package on slidemodel because uploading 200+ presentations is a lot more work than you could imagine
Ok now, how do you make money with this?
There are two different ways you can do this. The first way is that you could set up loads of awesome presentations and link to your own websites in the description or add call to actions to the slides themselves. The second way is that you could actually set up your own service here on SeoClerks and build slideshare presentations for people
I'm sure a lot of you would prefer to build slideshare presentations so I'm going to talk about that.
Basically you'll just set up your service as if you were building the presentations yourself. You can sell them for whatever you want, but I would stay under $10 so that you're competitive with everyone else. But remember, your presentations are going to be designed really wall and blow all your competitors out of the water
Take your time to set up a few presentations and post it to your own slideshare profile and use those as examples for your potential buyers. They will look over your presentations and determine if they want to buy or not... but they'll usually buy because they want to do slideshare marketing
You can set it up so that your main service is for a 10 set deck (that's what they call sets of slides on slideshare) and for every 5 additional slides on your deck you can charge an add on fee. In your description you should mention that the most viewed presentations are between 20 and 30 slides. This will encourage people to purchase your add ons and you'll make some extra cash
So what do you guys and girls think? Do you want to start running a slideshare presentation creation service now?
