People presumes that making Powerpoint presentations are very time consuming. If you are given a task of presenting data to your employer or your clients – who are your audiences, you need to work fast to prepare your presentation including compiling all important data into your presentation. There are several ways to organize these data which audiences find it easy to understand. It is crucial when especially you want to close your sales or give a business proposal, or even look for business solutions that meets clients’ needs.
Before you start making one presentation, you should summarized all the related information before you deliver it to your audiences. Remember, simplicity is the main rule of effective presentation. Please use simple slide designs to avoid create confusion among audiences. You can even use plain white background for your slides. Avoid complicated slide designs that could distract your audiences’ attention.
Therefore, you can only include related graphics on your Powerpoint presentations. If you are promoting a product, then you should include pictures of the products. Cleverly arrange the pictures on your slides so that you can capture audiences’ attention. For example, i prefer to put one product picture in one slide to allow clients to experience and discover the product visually.
One of the main reason your clients buy your products because they have the clear view of the potential of your products. You may include few words for the product description on your slides but I prefer to put two-to-three short lines to describe the products. Make sure the text-contents fonts and colors match the background picture.
You can use animation effects to enhance your presentation especially during the appearance of the text-contents and pictures. Normally, I use “Dissolve In” or “Ascend” animation effects for the text-contents and pictures to appear.
Concurrently, charts and graphs are included in these business presentations. You can have mixtures of text and content layouts in your presentation slides. I suggest that you do not mix bullet-texts with chats and graphs together. For example, insert three dimensional charts and graphs to show your annual profits to your employer. If you are using bar graphs, maximize the use of color effects in every bar graphs. Most business presenters use primary colors in their graphs. If you are using plain white backgrounds for your presentation, dark colored charts and graphs are chosen as the foreground objects of the slide presentation.
