If you aren’t using PowerPoint to market your business to your clients, you are losing out on a great visual exposure opportunity. You will find your options open up with multimedia presentations by showcasing your product or service. With PowerPoint, you can add sound bites, videos, photographs, charts, graphs, and much more. It truly is a dynamic platform.
Why do you want to add these bells and whistles?
First, using PowerPoint makes your presentation more interesting and more interactive with your audience. Whether you’re presenting to a room full of live people or presenting virtually in a webinar room, showing examples of your work, statistics, graphs, or simply sharing your desktop will keep your audience paying attention.
Second, there are many different ways of learning, including auditory and visual. By simply speaking you will capture the attention of those auditory learners but by adding the visual PowerPoint slides, you will also capture your visual learners.
Lastly, think about the topic of your presentation. If you are presenting a tutorial or how-to presentation, using slides to showcase the steps of how to do something is much more concise and helpful than verbally trying to describe each step.
Put yourself in the audience for just a moment.
If you are teaching a course about how to install and use WordPress, for example, would you rather listen to the directions or see the steps? When it comes to computers and technology, adding PowerPoint slides to your presentation is highly recommended so your audience members can compare their own computer screens to what you’re showing on the slides.
As we have all heard, a picture speaks a thousand words!
