LinkedIn’s SlideShare is where professionals go to share content and boost their status as a thought leader in their respective industry. With strategy and patience, anyone can upload a presentation, infographic, or other content and reach a large audience - the platform has more than 80 million members, most of whom come to the platform for focused, professional insights.
It’s important to choose the right topic for your SlideShare presentation. Potential topics can be buzzwords and trends in your industry, future trends and topics, numbered lists and, surprisingly, presentations about giving better presentations. A number of popular uploads already exist in each of these categories.

Benjamin Hardy, Josh Steimle, Neil Patel, Seth Godin, Jeff Weiner, Josh Hoffman. I don't mean to drop names here. But their posts are the ones that I often 'like' or share on social media, sometimes even without thinking.

LinkedIn’s publishing platform offers a great opportunity for brands and individuals to showcase their knowledge to a captive audience of professionals, helping to boost their industry status.
But with more than 100,000 posts uploaded to LinkedIn every week, the competition for attention is fierce, and the reality is that unless your post gets picked up by LinkedIn’s Pulse editorial team and shared on a specific channel, it isn’t likely to reach beyond your first degree connections - if it reaches all of them.
Back in April, Instagram reported that it now has more than 700 million monthly active users, and that it’s growing faster than ever.
But many of the surrounding comments on the back of this noted that many of the profiles on Instagram are bots, artificially inflating people’s follower and Like counts for a fee, in order to boost their reputation and – in the case of ‘influencers’ – earn them money.
