How to Convert Your Blog Content into a Google Slides Presentation

Start by breaking down your blog post into key sections. Each section will correspond to one or two slides. Identify the main points and subpoints to highlight in each slide.

2. Create a New Google Slides Presentation

  1. Open Google Slides: Create a new presentation.
  2. Choose a Template: Select a clean, professional template that aligns with your brand.

3. Title Slide

Your first slide should include:

  • Title: The title of your blog post.
  • Subtitle: A brief subtitle, if necessary.
  • Author: Your name or your blog's name and the date.

4. Introduction Slide

Summarise the introduction of your blog post. This slide should entice your audience and provide a preview of what they will learn.

5. Main Content Slides

For each key section of your blog post, create a slide or two. Use bullet points to highlight the main ideas. Keep text concise and easy to read. Incorporate visuals such as images, charts, and infographics to support your points.

6. Conclusion Slide

Summarise the key takeaways from your presentation. Include a call to action, such as visiting your blog for more information or following you on social media.

7. Review and Polish

Go through your slides to ensure there are no errors and that the content flows logically. Adjust the design elements to ensure visual consistency and appeal.

Tips for Optimising Your SlideShare Presentations

1. Keep It Visual

Limit the amount of text on each slide. Use bullet points, short sentences, and keywords to make your slides easy to read.

Consider adding speaker notes in Google Slides. They won’t be visible on SlideShare but can guide you if you present live or record a video presentation.

4. Promote Your SlideShare

Share your presentation on social media, in email newsletters, and on your blog. Engage with your audience by asking for feedback and encouraging shares.
