Update: The publishing beta is currently closed to new participants. Please keep an eye on What’s New for further news on presentation publishing.
What is presentation publishing?
Pitch’s presentation gallery features high-quality decks from VCs, agencies, and well known tech brands. Creators who have already joined the beta can share their latest conference presentations, pitch decks, and creative portfolios with the public. At the moment, publishing is only available to certain Pitch users in beta, but keep an eye on What’s New for further updates.
How to publish your presentation
If you’re already part of the publishing beta and have access to the feature, you can publish your latest presentation through the following steps:
Click the Share menu in the top right corner, select Publish to Pitch.com, and click Continue.
If you don’t already have a public profile set up, you will be asked to create one.
Set the public Title and Description for the presentation and click Publish. If you’d like to add it to your profile but aren’t yet ready to make it public, then you can choose Save as Draft.
Once you have clicked Publish your presentation will be added to your profile. Congratulations! You can now share this public page with others. The first time you publish you will see a screen where you can copy the link for the public page or share it to Twitter or LinkedIn. For future decks you publish, simply grab the URL from the browser window or click Share from the presentation page.
The very best presentations published to Pitch might even be added to our gallery. We’re always keen to curate beautifully designed decks on topics our community cares about, from pitch decks to thought leadership. Take a peek at some of the collections we’ve curated in our gallery for inspiration.
Making changes to your presentation
After you have published a presentation, you can edit your presentation’s Title or Description by hovering over the presentation on your public profile and clicking Edit.
Unfortunately, you cannot currently change the content of a published presentation. In this case, remove the presentation from your public profile by clicking the dots next to your published deck and click Remove, so you can update the source presentation in your workspace and then republish it.
Before you submit, review this checklist:
I've removed all sensitive, confidential, personal or proprietary content or imagery.
I've checked that I have the legal rights for the content to be shared publicly (including but not limited to images, and fonts and trademarks).
I've prepared a high-quality version of my personal photograph or company logo.
I've double-checked that the link to the content is publicly viewable.
Please read our content guidelines
The purpose of these guidelines is to provide a framework to help you to understand what type of content we will and will not feature publicly on Pitch.
Content that does not meet these guidelines should not be published, and may be removed.
Safety, Privacy & Copywriting:
We do not allow content that promotes violence or hatred against people based on characteristics like race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, disease, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.
We will not permit presentations that cover the following topics: gambling or betting, promotion of illegal substance abuse, illegal sexual services or other unlawful or unethical contents.
We will not allow you to spread false information in your presentations. This includes:
Pseudo-scientific claims, especially those related to asserting the superiority or inferiority of a particular group (on bases including race, ethnicity, or gender)
Health claims or advice that, if acted on, are likely to have detrimental health effects on persons or public safety
Conspiracy theories that have an associated history of harassing, hateful, or violent incidents among its adherents OR theories that may foreseeably incite or cause harassment, physical harm, or reputational harm
Intentional distortions and especially systematic false claims about historic events and facts.
For any content that raises concerns or that we are unable to fact-check, we will err on the side of caution and remove it at our own discretion.
Privacy and Reputation
We do not allow users to post images without the subject’s express consent. Content that violates the privacy of others, including confidential or sensitive information (email addresses, identifying data, etc.), is not permitted.
Copyright and trademark infringement
Pitch content must respect the copyrights and trademarks of others. Unless you can demonstrate authorization to use someone else’s copyrighted work or trademark (either expressly or by legal exceptions and limitations like fair use), do not publish the content. We retain the right to remove content in case of a suspected or alleged violation. This includes the use of unlicensed images, fonts, trademarks.
Advertising, Promotion, and Marketing
Third parties may share content on Pitch that tells an interesting story or idea. This content may or may not be related to their brands or services.
However, we do not allow direct advertising or promotion. Every piece of content should have a point or identity outside of the brand, company, or person writing about it.
Images or embeds that link out and function as adverts for third-party brands are not acceptable.
Politics and Ideas
Pitch aims to remain politically neutral while socially progressive.
Pitch endeavors to represent a diverse range of voices and create a platform that is inclusive, regardless of race, age, socioeconomic status, or gender.
Design and Content
We value stunning and functional presentation design. Published content should reflect this.
Presentations should try to follow recent and fresh style guidelines and should feel contemporary.
Images, fonts, and colors should be consistent.
Low-grade stock imagery should be avoided if possible. Images should feel relevant and add to the storytelling.
How do public presentation views work in the presentation gallery?
The number shows the total views of the presentation page. We do not track unique views.
How do I remove a presentation I have published?
Navigate to your public profile while logged in, click on the dots next to your published presentation and click ‘Remove’.
What if I have an idea for a presentation?
If you have another piece of content you think would inspire others as a presentation, share them with us in the form of blog posts, case studies, articles, or even Twitter threads. In some instances, our expert team might help you turn it into a presentation.
