Powerpoint presentation is the basic necessity of today’s corporate world. From making investor pitch decks to giving the consumers an overview, powerpoint is required in almost every area. Without a powerful PowerPoint, startups will find it extremely difficult to raise capital from angels and VCs.
However, there are some steps that you should keep in mind before creating a power point presentation:
1) MAKE THE OBJECTIVE CLEAR
Your presentation should have a clearly defined objective, avoid using vague and fluffy information. Make sure the presentation is precise, apt and covers all the relevant information that you want to convey.
2) USE A TABLE OF CONTENTS
Table of Contents is a structured section that gives an overview of all the elements included. A table of content is like a roadmap that builds a step-by-step foundation for the presentation. It makes it easy for the readers to locate the information.
3) USE GRAPHICS
Readers remember visual content more than text. It is advisable to use images that are related to the topics mentioned in the presentation. Visual representation of data is much more effective than regular information.
4) QUESTIONS and POLLS.
The presentation should involve an equal response from the audience. Try to include questions or polls that would engage the viewers and increase their curiosity about the presentation. Try to include relevant stats for impact.
It is always advisable to end the presentation with a bang. If your target reader is an investor, client or a partner, end your presentation with that point which you want them to take home with themselves.
FINAL THOUGHTS: An effective powerpoint presentation is a key to corporate success. It can be used to add visuals in the message for higher engagement and deliver large amounts of information in a summarized manner. Looking to develop an amazing presentation? Contact us at hello@DNAGrowth.com
