Creating slides for your video presentations is a great way to engage your audience. You can do it directly with Thrive Architect.

I have used Powerpoint, Google slides, Keynote, or, but there is a learning curve to them, and as I know Thrive Architect (and design with it), I took a stab at building slides directly in Thrive Architect, and there are some great benefits to it.

Some of the added benefits of creating your slide directly on your blog post:

  • It's easier to find.  You don't have to save your Powerpoint or Keynote files in a folder.
  • It's easy to update.  The changes are seen by your visitors immediately.
  • It can be indexed by google.
  • They can be responsive, and much easier to see on a phone.

I guess there are drawback to doing it this way too.

  • You will have to spend a bit of time to make sure they look good on a mobile.  But you can hide them on mobile if you want people from desktop only to see them.

Presenting your slides by using Page Up and Page Down on your keyboard

With a bit of custom css, it's easy to use the scroll up and down feature to present your "slides".

You can use the Page Up and Page Down on your keyboard as well to move between slides.  Or you can use the Spacebar to go down, and SHIFT+Spacebar to scroll up.

I have a nice programmable razer mouse with buttons to scroll up or down.  It's great to present, and for browsing faster.  

Custom CSS you can add to your Page Custom CSS.

html {
    scroll-snap-type: y proximity;

    scroll-snap-align: start;

Simply make sure you set the class "slidenap" (without the quotes) on the Background section.

Make sure you use a blog template (or page template) that allow for full width.

If you build some slides on your blog post, let me know in the comment section, I would love to see them.
