Best Techniques for Returning Traffic from SlideShare to Your Blog

Is your presentation a hit on SlideShare? Great! But that's only half the way. To get the most out of it, you need to transform this audience into regular visitors to your blog.

Here are 3 great tips to do it.

1. Add links to your blog in your presentation

SlideShare offers the possibility of including links, so take advantage of it! Here are the strategic places to place a CTA:

The 1st slide:

  • Put your logo prominently
  • Mention your website/blog URL

The “in-between” slides:

  • Slide a discreet link to your article when you detail a point raised
  • Add a “Learn more” button to a complementary resource at some key passages

The last slide:

  • Recall the title of your presentation
  • Encourage you to read the full article on your blog with a large and visible button
  • Invite to subscribe to your newsletter

SlideShare description:

  • Put your link from the first lines (the only ones visible without clicking)
  • Integrate it at the end too with an engaging CTA

Close.io even places a slide entirely dedicated to its blog article. Enough to attract as many clicks as possible to find out more.

An entire slide dedicated to the CTA to the blog, effective!

2. Link to your other content

Since we are talking about links, why limit ourselves to ONE article?

For each SlideShare presentation, brainstorm all of your other resources on the same topic.

Then integrate them wisely:

  • In the body of the slides when they go deeper into a particular point
  • In a final slide “To go further” listing your best linked content
  • In the description in the form of Resources

This way, your readers will be able to bounce from SlideShare to SlideShare and from page to page on your blog. Smart to keep them in your ecosystem!

3. Integrate SlideShares into your blog posts

Ultimate tip for perfectly linking your SlideShares to your blog: integrate them directly into your articles!

The Webflow platform makes it very easy to do this. All you need to do is:

  1. Edit the CMS page of your article in Webflow
  2. Click on “Add Block” where you want the SlideShare to appear
  3. Choose”Embed“in the list
  4. Copy and paste the embed code provided by SlideShare
  5. Resize the display area as needed
  6. Click on”Publish“to publish your page

And that's it! Your readers can now browse your SlideShares without leaving your blog. The best of both worlds.

You thus reach even the most hasty who are looking for a summary of the essentials. Or those who prefer more visual content. An effective way to reduce the bounce rate!

FAQs

What is the ideal length for a SlideShare presentation?

An effective presentation should have between 20 and 60 slides. Fewer than 30 slides may lack depth, while more than 60 slides may lose the audience.

Is it better to republish an existing post or create exclusive content for SlideShare?

Both options are valid. Republishing a popular article attracts an existing and qualified audience, while creating exclusive content can attract a new audience and explore more specific topics. Try both to see what works best.

What days/hours should I post on SlideShare?

The best days to post are Monday and Tuesday. Avoid Friday and Saturday. Post preferably in the morning (8 a.m. to 10 a.m.) to capture professionals at the peak of their productivity, or in the evening (8 p.m. to 10 p.m.) to reach night owls.

  • Highly qualified traffic for your articles
