How To Upload A PowerPoint Presentation To YouTube

With the changing trends in the way we use computers, mobile devices are increasingly gaining popularity. This is leading users to find workarounds for sharing content that is usually only accessible via desktop platforms. For example, MS PowerPoint files can be hard to open on most tablets and the cloud based Office 365 can be too expensive to use. Furthermore, not everyone uses Office 365 and the free alternatives such as Google Drive ruin the formatting of PowerPoint files. Therefore, an easier method of sharing presentations online and to make them viral via social media is by uploading a PowerPoint presentation to YouTube.

There can be a number of advantages of doing this, e.g. you can create a presentation to promote your product or service and share it via YouTube. Similarly, uploading a presentation to YouTube means that anyone with internet access can view it across multiple devices. In an earlier post we showed you a simple way to upload your PowerPoint presentation to YouTube, this time we will present you with another method of creating a YouTube PowerPoint Presentation.
