Benefits of Making GIF Animations using GIFDeck

While using GIFDeck might seem cool enough but one might beg the question regarding its utility. The developer has some suggestions for your generated GIFs and we tend to agree with him.

Create Promotional Marketing GIFs

GIFDeck website suggests that you can use your GIFs for promotional purposes by adding them to emails. This in fact seems quite useful as you can generate ads from your SlideShare presentations for emails when communicating with potential clients or sending out Facebook. Of course, you can also share these GIFs through other platforms such as blog posts and social accounts to make your content more visible throughout the web.

Share GIFs on Social Media

Whether you are looking to make your promotional GIF go viral or want to share a fun animation with your friends, you can use your social media accounts like Twitter to post your GIFs. Even Facebook now supports GIFs but you might have to upload your GIF to a web service like Imgur, Tumblr or Giphy to share it via Facebook.

Use GIFs in PowerPoint Presentations

This is solely our own suggestion and while it might seem odd to share a slide deck in the form of a PowerPoint slide, it can be more useful than you might think. For example, you can share a stream of information as a GIF animation by slowing down the GIF when making it via GIFDeck. This can help present important information or perhaps a funny GIF sequence for a PowerPoint presentation.
