PowerPoint Consultants Give 5 Shout Outs to the Best Presentation Software

PowerPoint got some attention in the news recently when House Speaker Paul Ryan used the software to outline the GOP’s plan to replace Obamacare. The Twittersphere responded with some funny embellishments on his presentation. (Worth a peek.)

We don’t want Ryan’s experience to tarnish anyone’s view of PowerPoint, which is always the best way to present information. Indeed, Ryan’s use of the software bears this out – as does the internet’s reaction to his use of it. You know the old saying, ‘You always hurt the ones you love’.

So, here are eSlide’s PowerPoint consultants’ five shouts outs to the best presentation software around:

Shout out to a blank canvas

This is a big one and really important to think about. If your presentation doesn’t get the results you want, your presentation is to blame, not the software.

PowerPoint gives you a blank canvas to work from, so you can release your inner artist and take your presentation design anywhere from there. We always advise that you limit the bells and whistles you add, but they are there for the adding when you want them.

PowerPoint gives you total freedom and this is a point all PowerPoint consultants can agree on.

Shout out to great graphic design potential

PowerPoint comes equipped with some pretty powerful design capabilities. Now, let’s be honest, it’s not always time-effective to design great graphics or illustrations yourself, so you may need to get help from some top notch PowerPoint consultants like the team at eSlide.

But if you do have the time and inclination, you can do great things with the tools that come standard with PowerPoint. It’s like buying a well-designed car or a powerful laptop, the juice is there, you just have to use it.

Shout out to a presenting buddy

Everyone loves to have a buddy with them when they stand up in front of an audience and a great PowerPoint presentation is that buddy. Also, when your PowerPoint presentation is fantastic, it does some of the work for you, so you don’t have to do all the presenting yourself. Instead, you’re part of a winning team. And that’s a lot less scary than going it alone.

Shout out to return on investment

One more reason why we love PowerPoint is that it gives you great return on investment (ROI). That is, once you’ve created a fantastic PowerPoint, you can reuse the presentation in a myriad of ways. For example, by turning your slides into video, you can create content for your company’s social media channels like YouTube or Facebook, or for your corporate blog. Here’s more on how to increase your PowerPoint ROI.

Shout out to beating the competition

Hopefully, we’ve gotten our point across about how much we love PowerPoint. At eSlide, we’ve been using the software for a long time, because frankly, it has no competition for creating great business presentations. And, it’s the software that will help you eliminate your competition too.
