Marketing Idea …
As you know my new years resolution is to establish a new marketing channel via SlideShare. This has now turned out to be a great marketing idea, allow me to explain …
It’s been a tremendous success as I already have the first weeks results showing over 3000 views, so very promising going forward for 2014.
The additional benefit of this is that uploads to SlideShare can also be uploaded to multiple document and presentation sites so this is now expanding my reach and ability to drive more traffic. More on this in about a weeks time once I have narrowed down the best sites to use.
Now that I am seeing very positive results I am also exploring further ways to get these short documents and PDFs in to more hands.
Right now I am turning them into videos, however, whilst this may sound a bit daunting I can assure you it most certainly is not. If you want to see how I am turning blog posts into videos please check this post.
This video angle is quite exciting as this brings a whole new dimension and allows me to really get the most out of these short documents … as I can auto post my videos to over 30 different video sharing sites.
- Create a blog post
- Turn the blog post into a PDF using Open Office, Word or PowerPoint
- Share the PDF to relevant sites such as SlideShare
- Turn the same blog post into a video
- Share this video to over 30 video sharing sites
Nice short blog posts, even articles can now appear on up to 50 different sites in the form of PDFs and videos.
And perhaps the best part is that the content to get the process started is freely available.
- Do a search for something like ‘top ten dieting tips’ (if dieting is your niche)
- Tweak these so they become your own
- Then create your blog post as per above and the process starts
And I bet you will already have documents and articles sat on your hard drive collecting virtual dust … dust them off, tweak if necessary and then put them to work for you.
Even if the document sharing process is not for you, I thoroughly recommend that you check out AVR, not only will you short cut your video creation but the end results are very professional … all from just uploading text content!
