5 Simple Steps to Breathe New Life into Old Content with SlideShare

Ready to reach a wider audience without having to create content from scratch?
Repurposing an old blog post into a SlideShare deck gives it new life and adds more value to your original content.
SlideShare decks can drive more traffic to your website and help you build your email list, too.
Here are five simple steps you can use to repurpose old content into a SlideShare deck.
Step 1: Select popular content
Once you know a blog post is popular on your own site, you can repurpose it to reach an even wider audience.
Posts that have strong visual elements also translate into compelling decks, and educational list posts easily convert into a slide format.
You can turn your latest “Top 10 Tips” post into a deck, with one tip on each slide.
Step 2: Plan your visuals
Check out the featured decks on SlideShare’s homepage for inspiration and to help you understand the types of visuals that work well on SlideShare.
As of December 2015, popular slide trends include photo backgrounds on title slides and screenshots of related social media posts.

Step 3: Repurpose your content
Outline your deck
First, break your content into an outline that will translate into slides. You can use mind-mapping software, or even index cards or sticky notes.
