Facebook Slideshow is an eye-catching way to easily showcase products and get your message across using still images.

This tool is particularly useful for free-lancers and small business owners who may not have the time and budget to dedicate to a full blown video marketing package. Instead, you can very simply utilise existing images and stock photos to quickly put together a slideshow or video showcase of your products and services.

If you haven’t tried the slideshow feature yet for your business, it is available from the “Photo/Video” link at the top of your Facebook Business page.

Follow the prompts to select your images, order them and give the slideshow a useful title. You may want to add a Fade Transition and slow the time between each slide, especially if you add text. Adding tags will help readers find your published content.

Recently a few new features were launched for slideshow, making it even easier to get started and tell your story. These features include:

  • Enhanced editing power allowing overlay text on your images
  • Your choice of Facebook provided audio tracks for your slideshow
  • The ability to create a slideshow from your Android phone
