Developing an understandable presentation that continuously holds the attention isn’t as easy as 1, 2, 3. Making a message become top of mind of a larger public requires a well-thought storyline supported by clear visuals, graphics and/or videos. It can be created in various ways ranging from a traditional PowerPoint presentation to an interactive, fully animated video experience. However, regardless of topic or communication tool, it is key to ‘present’ your story as a ‘present’ to your audience.
A good presentation needs clear and well structured content. What’s the message that I want my target audience to remember? That’s the most important question you need to answer. Whether your presentation targets an internal or external public, the message should run like a thread through the storyline. In general, a good presentation starts with a description of the current state, goes over the definition of the objective and ends with the solution that your company has to offer.
When the story is finished, you can add brief product and/or company information and a call-to-action. The CTA is there to stimulate leads and build a customer journey. In case of an internal presentation, the goal of the CTA is to build engagement among team members or employees.
Layouted & animated PPT
PowerPoint is widely known as the most applied tool to create presentations. However, nowadays its design features and animation possibilties have become so wide and versatile that developing an attractive PPT presentation requires dedicated attention. Best practices are to avoid too much textual content per slide; to integrate images, graphics and videos where possible; and not to overdo animating effects.
