SlideRocket Blog


By Nat Robinson on May 9, 2008

Lately we’ve been pretty caught up figuring out how to communicate all the value that is SlideRocket. Our challenge is that SlideRocket crosses multiple existing categories of software like presentation authoring (PowerPoint, Keynote etc.), collaboration (MS Groove) content management (SharePoint, Interwoven, EMC), online presentations (e.g. WebEx, GoToMeeting) and of course does a few new things too like Plugins, Secure Sharing, Presentation Metrics and The SlideRocket Marketplace. What do we call this new super category? Super Presentations-R-Us? All-In-One Presentation Authoring, Management, Sharing & Metrics? We can’t honestly say that we’ve cracked it yet. Right now we’re just going to go with SlideRocket :-)

To counter balance all this high-level “strategizing” we decided to get back to basics and start a series of demo movies that illustrate how fun and quick SlideRocket is to use and show you some tricks and tips to get you started.

You can view these at the new demo movies page. Pull up a chair, make some popcorn and settle in for some fun and informative viewing.

    You’re struggling to find a description? really?
    SlideRocket is power-point on steroids! It’s all of your presentation needs in one place- like Walmart-only with a much cleaner image and no sweat-shops.

    I think a nice Venn-style diagram showing how Sliderocket manages to integrate the different components of design, management and sharing.

    I think Sliderocket holds promise for the future. I for one am hoping for an invite as I’ve got some presentations to create for an undergraduate educational psychology class I’m teaching in the Fall. How cool would it be to offer presentations to my students without having to deal with the tech support of them installing PowerPoint, Keynote, Ooo, or anything else!

    Oh please, oh please, consider this poor teacher in your invite list!

    I’m just SO impressed with your product. I believe I”m going to get tons of use of it… I have only one complaint. When you open a presentation, there’s no way to get back? Like when you view, you can’t ‘close’ and go back or hit the back button? Am I missing something!

    Just a suggestion to the marketing department: You may want to send newsletters about cool new uses and features of SlideRocket to people who are actually in the beta program. For those of us that aren’t, it’s just a continuing reminder that we can’t play with it yet.

    What Bryan said …

    What a bummer to get a non-invite mail about updates & new features and other really exciting stuff … that has no impact on _my_ presentations.

    The unsubscribe worked, though :)

    Just kidding … I’m as anxious as ever to see what this means — especially to fan of Keynote & Google Docs’ presentations.

    Come on already. Are you guys serious? The best way to communicate the value of sliderocket is to get the product into as many hands as possible. End of story. Ever heard of Guy Kawasaki?

    An EXTENDED closed beta? Do you think google would have the success they do if that was their strategy?

    You’ve got people wanting more. Don’t squander your buzz, groundswell, [insert hip noun/phrase for popular public interest here]. Consider this, your moment, your window, could close (or we could give up) soon. It’s only a matter of time before someone else puts a similar solution in our hands. How much time? Not much.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. You should all be receiving invites if you didn’t have them already. If you don’t get them or they’re blocked please send me an email to and I will personally send you an invite link.

    Clearly we’re not Google and don’t have their resources so we’ve been letting people into the beta gradually to ensure performance and quality as we ramp up. We can all remember what happened to Friendster in this respect and we’d like to think we can learn from others.

    While we can appreciate your frustration with not being “in” the beta we’d rather have a smaller group of users who have an amazing experience than a large group of one time users who have a horrible experience and never come back.

    We are going to bring SlideRocket to market and we’re committed to providing you with the best tools, content and resources to allow you all to make, manage, share and measure great presentations. Thanks for your support.

    Many of my free baits were well over 25 millimetres in size and none were made to be round but rather all were odd shaped and were in fact not prepared by rolling at all.

    It also features Android specific shortcut keys, allowing you to jump to many popular Android destinations with the push of a button. After listing just a few of the features Apple has pummeled into upgrading on their i Pad you can get a glimpse of how the new i Pad 3rd Generation supersedes its predecessors and well worth the few extra dollars to invest into the i Pad. This app is basically a subscription to newspaper content at a cost of $5.
