Help When You Need It from the New SlideRocket Marketplace

By Tracy Frey on March 3, 2009

When SlideRocket came out of private beta at the end of October, 2008, we launched with the promise of a Marketplace for content and services.  We know your presentations are designed to sell something (be it a service, a product, a lesson, or you!) and we want you to make that sale.  We knew a robust Marketplace of content and services would help you do just that, and we’ve been working like mad behind the scenes to make that dream a reality.

Well, today that day has arrived, and we couldn’t be more excited.  Now, when you log into SlideRocket, you will find our brand new Marketplace portal where you can easily browse and buy content and services for your presentations.  Without ever leaving SlideRocket, you can find people to help you with graphic design, illustration, copy writing, custom photography, video services, motion graphics, presentation coaching and more. Pretty awesome, huh? Do you have a presentation service you are interested in selling in our Services Directory?  Contact marketplace at sliderocket dot com to apply.

In addition to our new Services Directory, we’ve added to our current content partners Fotolia (awesome stock photography) and Mimeo (super easy presentation printing and delivery).  We are pleased to welcome Andertoons (hysterical cartoons), and PresentationPro (graphics and icons) to the family, and we’ll be adding AudioMicro (killer stock audio) and Ascender (custom fonts) very soon.

What would a launch from SlideRocket be without a presentation? Well, don’t fret. If you want to check out some screenshots and groove to a cool AudioMicro tune, all you have to do is click play below. Play it in fullscreen to see it in all its glory.  You can even share this presentation with others if you want – we’d love it!

At SlideRocket, we know that particularly in our current economy, it is of the utmost importance that you optimize your sales and keep your costs to a minimum. We hope our new Marketplace can give you the content and help you need, and save you time and money to boot!  As always, we’d love to hear what you think, so please let us know in the comments.

What’s Next For The SlideRocket Marketplace?

By Nat Robinson on January 20, 2009

In case you haven’t heard, the SlideRocket Marketplace is where you go to browse, buy and rapidly integrate content and services that will help you make great presentations. Today we have Mimeo (digital printing and overnight delivery) and Fotolia (stock photography) up and running. We also have agreements in place with PresentationPro (graphics and icons), Ascender Fonts (to let you upload custom fonts), Audio Micro (music and FX) and Andertoons (cartoons).

In the next few weeks we’ll be releasing a new UI for the SlideRocket Marketplace and both PresentationPro and Andertoons will be coming online so stay tuned, we’ll let you know when they’re ready to roll.

In the meantime we want to know what you’d like to see next in the SlideRocket Marketplace so we can prioritize our efforts accordingly. Take the poll and tell us what you’re thinking.
