Stop the forces of bad presentations with our tips.
1. Keep It Simple
Free your slides from too much information. To make your pitch understandable, reduce your text to key points you can expound on.
You can also use images instead of text to show exactly what you’re talking about. Powerful visuals attract attention and reel people in by stirring strong emotions they’ll associate with your pitch later on.
2. Make It Visual
Back up your main ideas with striking visuals that will grab people’s attention and keep them interested.
People process visual information faster than raw data, so make sure these images reflect the impact you want to make on your audience.
3. Consider Good Design
Your deck design matters in connecting with your prospects. Arrange your overall layout so everything in your slides contribute to your message.
Things like color, space, and contrast factor in a lot when it comes to creating a visually appealing deck.
4. Liven Up Your Pitch
At the same time, energize everyone and keep them attentive throughout your pitch.
Balance out any overly serious content with strategic humor that’s appropriate for the speech you’re giving.
5. Build Audience Rapport
Elevating the mood lifts up your listeners’ spirits and eases any lingering tension.
The relaxed atmosphere will get your audience to invest in your offer and let your presentation move along quicker.
