Jazz up your press releases with Slideshare

Slideshare just announced a new service that will allow you to embed slideshows in your press releases. It's free or you can pay $6 to send a SEO enhanced release. You can read details on Slideshare's web page

A few tips on using SlideShare in press releases:
  • Make the first slide enticing
  • Keep it short on a press release, 15 slide max
  • It's ok to be a tease. Reporters will call for details
  • Big fonts, informative graphics, short sentences

Glad you like the Slideshare embedding feature! I love Slideshare, so it just made sense to add slide show embedding into Online PR News. With that same feature release, we also added the ability to embed Google and YouTube vidoes for some really lively PRs :)
