Before we get started, please take a look at this ...
Slideshare Traffic is significantly rising despite many algorithm changes that Google had implemented.
I usually see many Slideshares ranking highly in the SERP for many Product launches and Clickbank Products.
So..I have decided to create them myself.
First One: I went to JVNotify Pro
to find a product to promote myself. I chose Udemy Crusher. Initially, I just wanted to try my luck so I created an Slideshare that had direct linking to the sales page.
I ranked in the #3 spot within like 5 Mins. Although that was replaced by my other Slideshare in the same account:
But as you might have guessed I GOT 0 SALES FROM that Slidshare. It knew it from the beginning as the product i chose was in the IM category and direct linking would't work and I was right indeed.
So...Off I Went for an Amazon Product.
My Sub Niche was: Pink Office Chairs
I just looked at some Product reviews and made the Slideshare.
No Backlinks was DONE just like my Previous Slideshare. After some days ...
NOT BAD! But, No sales here either.
That's when I realised that I was not making use of IM's Basic Principle: (Sorry for the low Image Quality)
But I cannot make use of this Information now as my College had started and even though creating a mini-review on Slideshare is pretty easy, starting a website for full review or even making the full review will be hard for me. Not only that, I want to direct all my energy to my studies and fitness.
I always feel that the full review must be REAL before sales can come in, in the sense that I would need to buy the product myself and do a review.
Please take note that I can't even buy a basic $5 gig at Fiverr ($0 Paypal Balance) and thus the results above are Backlinks-free. I just Tweeted about them and that's all to it.
I may try the full sales funnel method sometime in the future when I am free but I don't want my findings about Slideshare to ERODE within me. If I can't use it, at least this case study could motivate other serious marketers. Just Google upcoming Product launches and you will see what I meant all while long. This has some serious potential.
How I made my Slides?
I Included my primary keyword pretty intensively (3-5%) in my Slideshare and in the description with relevant images and a mini-review of what the product is all about. My username was also my main keyword.
This will cover pretty much everything that I did: SlideShare SEO: A Guide to Presentation Optimization
That's all Folks! Just try Slideshare and include it as one of your traffic generation source and I hope that you get more traffic and sales as a result.
Those who tried Slideshare, What was your experience with it?
