Since launching Slide Bureau in the Spring we’ve been working hard, polishing and improving existing features, listening to our customers, and gathering real world feedback and suggestions. We’re thrilled to announce Slide Bureau 2.0 including a slew of new functionality that’s focused on exactly what our customers told us they wanted.
Already Slide Bureau has received some great recognition.
“Slide Bureau keeps the creative process in check, and layers in some slick tech goodies (real-time mirroring of the presentation on the web, embedded data)… Man, what I wouldn’t have done for a tool like this in the marketing department at the brokerage where I once worked.”
- Joel Burslem, 1000 Watt
We’ve always known Slide Bureau was going to be a great tool for helping people uniquely and beautifully deliver their messages. In the beginning, we envisioned Slide Bureau as a great way for even non-designers to create gorgeous presentations. But our customers told us two things: 1) slideshows were only one of the many formats in which they wanted to communicate, and 2) they wanted to share their Slide bureau creations everywhere. With our new functionality, we’re helping end users create content they can be proud of and that they can easily share across multiple channels, in multiple formats. Here are all the new features we’ve been working on:
Create once, Share Everywhere. Content in Slide Bureau automatically adjusts to its environment. You can share the same content as often as you like in multiple formats, but editing the core presentation will keep them all up-to-date.
Webpage view. In addition to the existing slide show view, you can now view your “slides” as a single, scrollable, web-standard compliant web page. Wondering why you might want to take your content and “stack” it as a webpage? Here’s an example for you to check out to see how impactful it can be: http://slidebureau.com/BPZZPUKGZAXPKRBWA/play
Autoplay. Create a slideshow that will auto-play on infinite loop. Great for weddings, graduations, sales pitches, etc. You can even customize the length of time the slides are shown and on which slide you’d like the show to start.
Links. Add a link to any user-supplied image or block of text in the presentation. When you share your content as either a slideshow or as a webpage your viewers can click your links like they would on any other web content.
Export content as PDF, JPG, and even video. Export your Slide Bureau content to your DropBox or directly to your iPad. Additionally, what you can export has been greatly enhanced. Content authors can choose between pdf, a set of JPEG images, or even a movie! Users can decide between large, medium and small resolutions, as well as choosing between 4×3 or 16×9 aspect ratios.
Social media overlay. Since its inception, Slide Bureau has let users share their creations directly to Facebook and Twitter. Now content authors can give their audience a way share the content themselves. When you share your content from Slide Bureau, turn on our social media sharing overlay to add sharing buttons that allow your fans to share your to their Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest feeds.
Copy. Now you can duplicate your presentations (great for keeping your master draft in tact), by tapping and holding on them from the Slide Bureau home screen.
Tons of new templates. We have over 400 new templates in our boutique and are creating more every day. Many were created as a direct response to customer requests we’ve gotten. These include a plethora of templates focused on the Real Estate industry, service business proposals, and many many more. We’re adding new templates all the time and they show up automatically in your copy of Slide Bureau. Check out the full template gallery to see what else is new.
“These templates were simply gorgeous, super interactive, and, well, fancy with a capital “F”… Using Slide Bureau in my market would definitely stand out from the crowd and wow any seller.”
- Stefanie Hahn
