Why use WordPress for presentations ?

A presentation on your website helps to create a visual appeal and keeps the viewers for a longer time in your page and also boosts the Search Engine Optimization of your website.

There are various ways to add presentation slides to a WordPress website:

  • Use plugins like Embed Any Document
  • Copy the embed codes from Google Slides and paste them into it.
  • Also use third-party services like SlideShare.

Where there is a benefit, there is also some difficulty. Similarly, every thing and every phase has pros and cons. Use of WordPress for presentations like PowerPoint has also some methods to follow. It's not that you can directly make presentation but for that you need to create your presentation in other softwares like Powerpoint, Keynote or google slides. And then, you'll have to embed original document to WordPress Posts and Pages.

Not only this but it may also happen that sometimes those embeds won't work with all the devices. It may also look ugly. You may also face difficulty in browsing and it is not very SEO friendly.

Every thing has a solution and to prevent your website from those problems, you have an easier alternative i.e. to create your presentation in WordPress using HTML5 and JavaScript. It is SEO friendly and also you won't face any kind of difficulty in using it in any device. It looks great too.
It is also easy to share, that brings direct traffic to your website instead of a third-party services.
