I really like the slideshows on LinkedIn and wanted to try as well. They turned out OK, and so I want to share how it's done.
Make a presentation
Personally, I use Keynote from Apple, but I am pretty sure you can use PowerPoint or Google Slides as well. Pick a good design template and come up with an engaging, short story you would want to share.
To get me going, I shared a photo tip: How to use humans for scale on large objects.
Wrap the presentation up, save it and export to PDF. Open LinkedIn, start a post and upload the PDF as document. Explain the slides and post.
My next steps
Now that they are live, I am confident I will learn new tricks, from a storytelling point of view but also from a technology, platform point of view. I am curious to see how people react and which analytics I get to see.
In the coming days I will experiment a bit more and also see how to apply some branding to the slides.
Here you can find the result of the slideshow experiment on LinkedIn.
