Overthinking Slideshare

Posted on Jan 15, 2014

It seems to be that time of the year when every platform provider under the Sun is emailing me to tell me about my 2013 statistics

How many views my slides have had

How long people watched my videos for

How many bowel movements I’ve made

How many tweets I’ve sent etc

I was reading my Slideshare stats earlier today when I noticed that my number of slides per upload was much higher than the average Slideshare upload!

GASP!

I then noticed that my average number of words per slide was significantly lower than the average \

PHEW!

I guess the Lessig method I use for most of my presentations means that I’m using more slides to tell my story, but with fewer words. Perhaps I’m also overthinking this and need to get out more…

Do you use Slideshare?

What did your annual stats look like?

If you’d like to discuss how I can help you enhance your and your teams slide-based presentations, please get in touch.

  1. Great post Craig – sometimes the end of year stats are interesting to us, but do we really need to be bombarded with a lot of them to go and look at for other people?

    Also, your point about more slides and less words is spot on. I find it interesting how people hang on to their bullet points, their text, don’t include full screen images and certainly think that more slides is bad. I usually get there with them though 😉
