Create a Lively Marketing Presentation

A lively presentation will impress your prospective clients! This will keep your customers’ attention and it might lead to more profit for you. Follow these instructions to create animations for your next talk.

Step 1: Add excitement, but in moderation. Your talk should be captivating and interesting to your audience. At the same time, it’s best not to overdo it. Moderate the amount of animation and video clips you include to keep your presentation from annoying. You can add color and interesting fonts but ensure that you are able to maintain a professional outlook and feel for your presentation too. As an example, the screen that announces a price increase shouldn’t have lively animations zooming across. Keep it appropriate and limited.

Step 2: Use timed content. It can be difficult for presenters to remember that a PowerPoint or Flash requires a click for every little bit of animated text. Try using timed text on your presentation so that the person presenting it will not have to try to memorize it all. Enter at the right moment in the presenter’s speech. (You might need to practice and fine-tune this).

Step 3: Spice up your graphic displays and diagrams. Other animations, such as charts and graphs, can be added as well. Make sure that facts and statistics that are the most important stand out among the others. Use a bar chart which depicts an ascending bar in order to highlight rising profits. Having a visual representation during your presentation is something your audience will appreciate.

Step 4: To explain a process, use animation. When a segment of your advertising presentation needs to be explained, utilize illustrations to get the points across. The presenter should click to show the first step in the process before explaining it. When the user is finished with the first step, he or she ought to be able to click and have the second step appear, without any further action on their part. The concepts will be easier for your audience to grasp if there are good visual graphics to explain the steps. This is better than one large graphic all at one time.

Step 5: Make a joke. If a presentation has some complicated segments to it, break it up with a little light humor. A heavy part of your presentation should be followed by a funny comic or dancing caricature. This will allow your clients both some laughs as well as the chance to digest the information presented. Plus it will stop them from coming to the conclusion “my, this presentation is long and dreadfully boring….”. Add some humour to break things up.

Step 6: Practice beforehand. If your presentation has cute little clips that require excellent timing or ones that will only show up with a mouse click, make sure that you or the presenter practice the presentation. The audience should be surprised as the graphics appear; the presenter should not. Ensure that the presenter is well prepared for the animated presentation.
