PowerPoint Presentations are a great way to present something illustrative. We can discuss any topics elaborately by explaining everything with the help of presentations. And also that we can target a wide range of audience. Not only offline presentations are useful, now-a-days we can even use presentations in our blog posts, reviews and tutorials to give our readers and customers some better understanding on a certain topic or a product.
Technology has developed a lot and things can now easily be implemented online which was not possible before. With enhanced features, it is now possible to embed PowerPoint Presentations on Webpages and blogs and present it to your targeted visitors.

How we can embed presentations?
There are several ways to integrate your PowerPoint Presentations on a webpage.
Let us have a look on some simple ways to accomplish it…
1. Convert PowerPoint Presentations to Flash.
There are numerous tools which facilitate PowerPoint Presentations to Flash file conversion without any hassle. All you need to do is choose the target file and a destination to export it. Once you’ve done that, upload it on your hosting space and place the code on your webpage. That’s it. it is simple but rather inefficient because many devices dropped support for flash files.
2. Use some Web Apps to get the job done.
You can webify your presentations through various web applications, including Microsoft’s own Office Web apps, which is an expensive service. However, there also several free services such as Slide Online, Author Stream which provide the same functionality. It is my favourite technique because the original presentation interface is retain and it is supported by almost all modern devices.
3. Use WordPress Plugins to embed Presentations.
If you are using WordPress as your blogging platform, integrating presentations is just a click away. All you need to do is install “Slide Online” plugin for WordPress which allows you to directly embed Presentations to posts. The best part is, it’s absolutely free.
4. Save Presentations as Videos and upload to posts.
Instead of putting up with all the hassle, there is another, rather straight-forward way to do it. You can save your presentation in Video Format using native ‘save as video’ feature in PowerPoint 2013. However, video consumes bandwidth and takes several minutes to load on slow connections, especially on mobile networks.
This may sound crazy to you but using PowerPoint Presentations is very effective in marketing and blogging as readers and customers take interest in watching them and they also learns something for them.
