Going Viral

Let’s face it, content creation can be a challenging task. Studies have shown that almost 75% of video content creators have a hard time making engaging content. The blockade must be overcome to make content that can go viral.

Achieving Content

Coming up with content ideas is not the hardest part of the process. For many it is being able to develop content that the in presentation mode draws in the viewer. Achieving content that is visually appealing is not easy.

Create an eBook

And speaking of content, one of the most challenging tasks is creating an eBook. The eBook format many find difficult to achieve. Well the good news is that there is a more simple way to achieve goals and that is through starting in PowerPoint and converting it to a PDF.

Learning Curve

Indeed it is an unusual way of generating content and it is going to make a more “slide oriented” method for making it, but if you give a heads up to your readers that you are using PowerPoint, many people find it more desirable of a format because it mean keeping pages (slides) not long but simple. Because let’s face it, many want their learning curve to be as short and sweet as possible.

Letting Your Audience Know

Making an eBook is a powerful marketing tool because you can use it as a way to get people to sign up for your monthly or weekly newsletter, or even more frequent deliveries which is fine as long as you let your readers know this from the very beginning.


If you have been keeping a blog on a certain topic, but have not yet made an eBook, you can do so by repurposing your online content as first a PowerPoint presentation and then an eBook. If you are a teacher or professor as we are, it is a good idea to first test your content on a classroom of students, making note of where the interest lies. And once finding it, revising the PowerPoint content to reflect this prior to making it a PDF.

Your Promotion Strategy

If your eBook is really intended for promotion, a place where you can promote your slides is on a site call SlideShare. It apparently services 80 million users so it might fit into your promotion strategy.

Overcome the Challenges

And making an eBook doesn’t have to be a challenging process. First create the content in slideshow format, test on an audience if possible and then convert it to a PDF.

Wait to Make Committment

But what do you do with your eBook once it is a PDF? One possibility is to use it as a free giveaway in exchange for your audience signing up for your newsletter. There are many different services that you can use to do this, and like anything, it is usually best to try out a couple before committing to a particular one.

Your eBook

A fun way to create eBook content is to go to places such as the books section of Amazon and see what is a popular topic within your area of expertise, next possibly using this as the topic of your eBook/presentation.

Establish Yourself as an Expert

And needless to say, when you write and create an eBook, it establishes you as an expert in your field which is valuable especially if you are seeking readers or clients.


Although PDFs are still pretty popular, as you may know Amazon offers a different mode for their Kindle offerings. Although it costs money, Designrr can be a useful tool to convert your web posts into an eBook. Next you can output it in a variety of different formats including the one that can be converted into the Kindle on to publish on Amazon.
