9 B2B Marketing Presentations you must see on SlideShare

It’s easy to see why so many B2B marketers are going to LinkedIn SlideShares for inspiration.

With the majority of us now visual learners, the SlideShare medium allows creators to explain ideas and tell stories in a way that is sharp, engaging, and features bold imagery.

Not only that, but SlideShares are an excellent resource for learning and often feature latest industry research. And when delivered with skill and finesse, they can be a huge traffic and demand-generator for B2B businesses.

The following nine SlideShare presentations are some of our favourites - and feature useful, must-see content for digital marketers. Take a look:


‘Crap. The Content Marketing Deluge.’

This SlideShare was designed to make a statement back in 2013, and is just as relevant, perhaps even more relevant, today than ever before. The crux is that to stand out amongst the swarm of ‘crap’ content, the winners have to build a ‘Great Content Brand’, which differs completely from the common ‘efficient content machines’ within B2B businesses. Direct, engaging, and just a little bit rude, this presentation by Velocity Partners can provide the inspiration you need to start creating outstanding content.   

Educate, Entertain or Convince: Three Beneficial Approaches to Content Marketing

Choosing one of these factors is all dependant on your brand and the goal of each piece of content. And if it’s all three? Then you're onto a winner. 

How to Suck at Marketing

Sucking at marketing is quite easy, Hubspot argues in their SlideShare. So they’ve written a handy guide on how to achieve it, with depersonalised emails, plenty of cold calls, and making sure everybody on social media knows how great you and the company are (constantly). If it's driven you to take action on your sales and marketing strategy, take a look at our guide on what modern B2B buyers are now looking for. 

How Google Works

In this SlideShare, seasoned Silicon Valley business executives Eric Shmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg illustrate the picture of how Google thrives.
