10 Steps to Promote Your YouTube Channel On Slideshare

1. Create a Slideshare account at Slideshare.net by signing up with your LinkedIn or Facebook Account.

2. Optimize your account by filling out your personal profile information. This adds legitimacy to your account.

3. Create a document of your video transcript using OpenOffice.org or Powerpoint

4. Write a catchy title to grab the attention of your readers. Use a different title to your video so your Slideshare presentation can be ranked separately to your video. If you don’t have time just use the same title as your video.

5. Create a colorful, eye-catching image. Place it at the top of your presentation’s first page to capture the attention of your audience.

6. Include a call to action at the end of your document. For example ask visitors to subscribe to your YouTube channel or download report. Make sure you include the full URL of your landing page because the basic plan doesn’t allow live links.

7. Convert the document to a PDF file. If using Open Office go to file – export as PDF.
