The world of professional PowerPoint designers is a fairly new and unexplored one. Many people don’t consider the fact that they may need professional help with their PowerPoint. Of course, they also don’t realize that their text-filled, random bullet-pointed and picture-less presentation is so terribly ineffective. People often wonder what situation would warrant the need of a professional designer and what would not, so here’s a little insight on the topic.
Keynote or Conference Presentation
Conferences are an excellent opportunity for you to establish yourself, your business, or your products in the industry. Additionally, it’s an excellent opportunity for exposure. While it is a great opportunity, it’s also a great responsibility. The attendees at these conferences will often have paid quite a sum of money to listen to you weave your case for your company or product. If you spend your time pelting them with bullet points or boring them with a mono-toned and skittish presentation, you will end up with an audience who won’t be afraid to voice their displeasure. This is a chance you don’t want to botch in any way. Also, because the speeches are often booked months in advance, you will have plenty of time to research and hire a designer that will suit your needs.
Company-Wide Sales Pitch
Often, companies have a team of sales people spread between several different offices. The sales reps will come together to show a presentation thinking that it will be unified only to find that each presenter is using a different version of the presentation. This can lead to confusion, poor design techniques, and off-brand visuals.
If a sales team is spread out in such a way, hiring a professional PowerPoint designer than ensure that not only will each part of the presentation be unified and cohesive, it’ll look snazzy too.
Venture Capitalist Or Investor Pitch
Guy Kawasaki posted in his blog about what many consider to be the foundation of PowerPoint design, the 10/20/30 Rule. While this guideline is excellent for rookie PowerPoint designers, hiring a professional can weed-out unnecessary points and stick to all the important aspects of your idea. A professional will look at your story and product, learn about your individual pitch style, then build a presentation that fits you. Having such an individualized PowerPoint can really help you grab the attention of potential investors while also building a compelling backdrop for your billion-dollar idea.
