How to Convert a Word Document to a Video

If you have a particular part of a Word document you would like to use in a video, you can do so using free native programs in Windows. The "Print Screen" tool, along with the program Microsoft Paint, let you capture what's on your screen, such as a Word document, and save it as a picture. The program Windows Movie Maker allows you to take images, videos and music, and combine them into a movie.


Double-click your Word document to open it in Microsoft Word. Scroll down to the part you want to convert. Press the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard. It's located next to F12.

Click "Start" and select "All Programs," then "Accessories," followed by "Paint." Click "Edit" in Paint and select "Paste." The Word document image appears. Click "File" and select "Save."

Click "Start" in Windows and select "Windows Movie Maker," under "All Programs."

Click "File" in Windows Movie Maker and select "Import Media Items." Select the Word image and click "Import." Click and drag the image down to the "Video" section below.

Import any music you want as well, and drag it down to the "Audio" section. Click on the image where it appears under the Video section time line and stretch it out so that it plays from the "0" mark to the end of the song. Click "File" and select "Save" to save the video.

17 fun presentation ideas (with video!) to wow your audience

17 fun presentation ideas (with video!) to wow your audience

So you want to be the next Steve Jobs. Or Martin Luther King. Or any other dazzling orator you look up to. But you need a little something to add to your presentation ideas – you don’t want to bore people to death with Powerpoint.

Whether you’re creating a sales presentation, an event presentation, or just showing your travel video to Uncle Ron, we’ve compiled some of the best ways to get your audience seriously hyped up about your message.

Biteable offers online video presentation software, so we know a thing or two about making engaging presentation videos. In this guide, we share some of our favorite video presentation inspiration and show you some of the different types of presentations you might consider.

When you’re ready to make your own video presentation, head over to  Biteable  for hundreds of brandable templates, video scenes, and workplace-ready animations. With Biteable, making a video presentation is as easy as making a PowerPoint – only a whole lot more fun.

Types of video presentations

If you’re looking to win over your audience with a presentation, videos are the best way to do it. According to Insivia, viewers retain  95% of a message  when they see it in a video, but only 10% if they have to read on-screen text.

When you’re making your presentation, you could either make your video the whole presentation, or just a part of the whole. Did you know, for example, that you can  embed a video in a Powerpoint document?  Either is possible with our video templates and it can be interesting to mix things up once in a while.

There are four main types of presentations:

Picking the right one will ensure you’re onto a winner with your video presentation. For example, if you’re onboarding some new employees, you might choose a video template that’s an informative presentation like this one:

Or, if you want to show off how something works, a demonstration presentation might be what you want to create:

A persuasive presentation would involve creating a video more like this charity infographic example:

And if you want something a little more inspirational, try something like this positive quote video template.

But that’s not all, folks! If you’d like to check out more awesome Biteable video templates, visit our  templates page here .

Creative (and fun!) video presentation ideas

You’ve now picked the type of presentation you need. But how do you get creative with your video?

First of all, it’s important your video is top-notch. Without high-quality graphics and production value, your message may fall by the wayside. Choose online  video presentation software  that’s easy to use and makes great-looking videos. That’s where Biteable comes in.

Whatever the topic of your presentation, your video format and design need to match the overall tone and message.

Delivering a corporate presentation on climate change? A fast-paced, wildly colorful template with upbeat music is going to feel a little off-message.

To identify how to design your presentation, think about the feelings you want to evoke in your audience. Want them to be crying with laughter? Moved to tears? Motivated into taking action? Pinpointing the emotions behind your presentation will help you choose the right template and make the best video possible.

17 great presentation ideas

Now you’ve nailed down the type of video presentation you want to make, it’s time to master the finer details. Here’s just some of the ways you can make your message sing.

1. Start with a bold statement

A bold statement can capture your audience’s attention right from the get-go. Your statement should offer something slightly unusual and maybe even a little controversial. Something to make people sit up and take notice.

2. Tell a story

One of the best ways to get your audience’s attention is to tell a story – it’ll hit them right in the feels.

A personal, human story works because it the audience can relate to it on a personal level. Think about some stand-out examples of human stories that relate to your business or idea, and tell that story so people will connect with the central character. The bigger the emotion the better: love, longing, overcoming obstacles, things we’ve all had to deal with at some point in our lives.

Think about the  ‘story arc’  – how will you frame your message so the audience immediately empathizes?

If you’re selling trainers, perhaps you’ll talk about someone who’s training for a marathon. If you’re lobbying for women’s rights, perhaps you’ll tell a story of when a passing comment affected you deeply. Maybe you should think back to the decision that started your business, and start your presentation with that.

Here’s a great example of storytelling from one of the world’s top brands:

3. Use music

Music has great power to support and enhance the emotion in a video presentation, and has been proven to sustain an audience’s attention and aid in information retention. Music is used in movies to suggest an emotional state to the viewer, so why not in a video presentation?

Modern, up-tempo music will snap people to attention at the right moment, while slow, minor-key sounds relax the brain, which is useful for reviewing content so it can slip more easily into long-term memory.

It can be a struggle to find good quality  royalty free music , but here at Biteable we have a selection of great royalty free tracks (or you can upload your own if you’re that way inclined).

Music is one of the most critical (and often overlooked) aspects of any presentation. Here’s a good example of a Biteable template where the music does a great job of supporting the message.

4. Visual metaphor

Research has shown that combining pictures and text is one of the best ways to help people engage with and retain information. There’s something about how our brain works that makes text by itself far less memorable, so if you can combine something visual with your message, you’ll keep people’s attention longer and they’ll remember more of your presentation.

Talking to a group of people about taking action on something that scares them? A picture of someone diving or bungee jumping could work. Telling your boss how important that company retreat is next year? Show them an image of happy, relaxed people with their toes in the sand.

It doesn’t have to be obvious and clichéd, either. Closed doors, wide open roads, and lighting a candle all have subconscious messages that you don’t really need to explain. (Whatever you do, just don’t use the ultimate cliche: the overused  ‘water ripple’ .)

5. Use questions

Questions can be a great way to open a presentation, because they encourage the audience to think for themselves. It opens them up to a realm of critical thinking, which is perfect when you’re gonna sock it to them with your impactful message.

‘Did you know 15 billion trees are cut down each year?’

‘Have you ever considered what life would be like if you didn’t have to save money?’

The art of asking questions in a presentation means you can incorporate them into your video as a great lead-in. Combined with some appropriate music, it can really get your audience thinking about the issue, and then you’ll go on to explain exactly what your solution is.

Having a laugh can really do a lot to win over an audience. There’s no need to be too serious, and even if you’re dealing with a heavy topic, lightening the mood can work wonders.

Whether you’re looking to create a funny sales video, an event presentation, or a presentation for an interview — one thing’s for sure, you can’t go wrong by including humor.

7. Repetition

Simple. Effective. Powerful.

Repetition can be used in several ways: by offering several one-word sentences in a row (the repetition is in the rhythm), or by repeating a word or a key phrase several time throughout your presentation.

In his famous Stanford speech in 2005, for example, Steve Jobs concluded by saying  “Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”

Repetition is powerful. It drives home your key message and strengthens your position.

8. Motion Graphics

Motion graphics  are basically animation with text as a major component, and is a staple of what we do at Biteable.

When you use moving graphics in a presentation, it instantly captures attention. If your audience is just taking their seats, or are halfway through hearing your story, there’s no doubt they’ll sit up and take notice if you introduce some cool motion graphics, like this Meeting Tips example.

Although they can sometimes feel clichéd, quotes are a great way to impart a message in a presentation. Want your audience to understand something complex? A quote from Einstein should do it. Or would you like to say something meaningful and poetic? A couple of lines of Shakespeare should convey some wisdom.

10. Audio narration

Narration can give a different mood to your presentation, especially if the voice is powerful and the words are heartfelt. Use it to change the tone or pace of your presentation and it will certainly keep your audience hooked if there’s a danger of them losing interest.

11. Go bright with color

Color can have a huge effect on how your video comes across. Don’t be afraid to experiment. The contrasts of black and white can be extremely effective, but you can also grab people’s attention with some carefully-chosen primary and secondary colors, like in our Motion Graphics template.

12. Use illustrations

Illustrations are a great way to communicate information, especially if you’ve got lots to say. Whether you want to create a crowd of people or a cool depiction of some new fancy gadget, illustrations can draw the eye and make your presentation more interesting.

13. Infographics

When you utilize infographics, you can pack in a huge amount of data and information without confusing your audience. Think pie charts, digital numbers, and ascending animated graphs. These can show your audience boring data in an exciting way.

14. Create interesting transitions

The one advantage of video over a standard presentation is that you can do all types of funky things with transitions, like a whip pan transition, when the camera quickly pans between scenes. It’s a bit like a wipe, but much faster. Check out our full article on transitions  here .

15. Make it look cinematic

Adding a cinematic touch can help your audience feel receptive to your message because subconsciously, they will associate these elements with being at the cinema, eating popcorn, and generally having a good time.

16. Go retro

A cool, retro look for your presentation will make it hard to ignore. By going retro, you add a little bit of cheeky style to your message. You don’t need to go  quite as retro as the template below, but taking a step back in time is a sure way to add a little bit of zing to things.

17. End on a meaningful note

Your presentation will only give your audience a lasting impression if you end it right.

It’s important to let the audience know what you want them to do next: to visit a website for more information, to ponder an idea or new direction, or to take action toward a particular goal.

An attention-grabbing visual will work really well here, along with a meaningful end to the music – a change of pace, volume, or pitch.

What’s the takeaway message? A strong CTA (call to action) will ensure your presentation is memorable and much more likely to be talked about.

Video brings your presentation alive

Of course, we’re a little biased here at Biteable, but we’ve also sat through enough mind-numbingly dull presentations to know that video offers a delightful treat for your audience. It brings your message to life in a way no other medium can.

3 things to look for when providing presentation feedback

3 tips for giving effective feedback.

We’re all learning as we go. 

And that’s perfectly OK — that’s part of being human. On my own personal growth journey, I know I need to get better at public speaking and presenting. It’s one of those things that doesn’t necessarily come naturally to me. 

And I know there are plenty of people in my shoes. So when it comes to presenting in the workplace, it can be intimidating. But there’s one thing that can help people continue to get better at presentations: feedback . 

The following examples not only relate to presentations. They can also be helpful for public speaking and captivating your audience. 

You’re doing great 


You should think of improving 


Tips to improve 

Presentation feedback can be intimidating. It’s likely the presenter has spent a good deal of time and energy on creating the presentation.

As an audience member, you can hone in on a few aspects of the presentation to help frame your feedback. If it's an oral presentation, you should consider also audience attention and visual aids.

It’s important to keep in mind three key aspects of the presentation when giving feedback. 




Body language and presence 

There are plenty of benefits of feedback . But giving effective feedback isn’t an easy task. Here are some tips for giving effective feedback. 

1. Prepare what you’d like to say 

I’m willing to bet we’ve all felt like we’ve put our foot in our mouth at one point or another. Knee-jerk, emotional reactions are rarely helpful. In fact, they can do quite the opposite of help. 

Make sure you prepare thoughtfully. Think through what feedback would be most impactful and helpful for the recipient. How will you word certain phrases? What’s most important to communicate? What feedback isn’t helpful to the recipient? 

You can always do practice runs with your coach. Your coach will serve as a guide and consultant. You can practice how you’ll give feedback and get feedback … on your feedback. Sounds like a big loop, but it can be immensely helpful. 

2. Be direct and clear (but lead with empathy) 

Have you ever received feedback from someone where you’re not quite sure what they’re trying to say? Me, too. 

I’ve been in roundabout conversations where I walk away even more confused than I was before. This is where clear, direct, and concise communication comes into play. 

Be clear and direct in your message. But still, lead with empathy and kindness . Feedback doesn’t need to be harsh or cruel. If it’s coming from a place of care, the recipient should feel that care from you. 

3. Create dialogue (and listen carefully) 

Feedback is never a one-way street. Without the opportunity for dialogue, you’re already shutting down and not listening to the other person. Make sure you’re creating space for dialogue and active listening . Invite questions — or, even better, feedback. You should make the person feel safe, secure, and trusted . You should also make sure the person feels heard and valued. 

Your point of view is just that: it's one perspective. Invite team members to share their perspectives, including positive feedback . 

You might also offer the recipient the opportunity for self-evaluation . By doing a self-evaluation, you can reflect on things like communication skills and confidence. They might come to some of the same important points you did — all on their own.

Now, let’s go practice that feedback 

We're all learners in life.

It's OK to not be perfect . In fact, we shouldn't be. We're perfectly imperfect human beings, constantly learning , evolving, and bettering ourselves. 

The same goes for tough things like presentations. You might be working on perfecting your students' presentation. Or you might want to get better at capturing your audience's attention. No matter what, feedback is critical to that learning journey . 

Even a good presentation has the opportunity for improvement . Don't forget the role a coach can play in your feedback journey.

Your coach will be able to provide a unique point of view to help you better communicate key points. Your coach can also help with things like performance reviews , presentation evaluations, and even how to communicate with others.

How to Create a Video Presentation in PowerPoint

word for video presentation

Have you ever gone on YouTube to watch just one video, only to find yourself stuck there a few hours later? You aren’t the only one. TechJury reports that last year the combined watch count on YouTube was 5 billion views per day.

People really love videos. According to a report by Forrester Research , they are 75% more likely to be engaged by videos over documents, articles, and other forms of plain media. This is the reason more and more companies are using them for their business tasks. One of the more popular forms of video is a video presentation. In this article, we’ll explain what a video presentation is, what it’s used for, and show how to create high-quality video presentations step by step.

Video presentations can take on a variety of formats. They can include fully animated explainer videos, cartoons, invitation videos, screencasts, tutorials, video ads, promo videos, marketing videos, product demos, or PowerPoint slides narrated by a talking head. Ultimately, the choice of format is yours.

Now, we’ll show you step by step, how to make a video presentation with the iSpring Suite authoring toolkit. Later, we’ll also provide you with the other tools and presentation makers that can help you author a video presentation fast.  

iSpring Suite is an easy-to-use tool – all that’s required to create stunning video presentations is knowing how to use PowerPoint.

You can use the built-in video editor to add a professional touch and apply captions, transitions, effects, and more.

If you still don’t have iSpring Suite, download the program for free and install it on your computer right now. 

Here are five steps you need to take in order to make a video presentation in minutes.

Step 1. Add a video narration Step 2. Synchronize video with slides Step 3. Switch layouts in slide properties Step 4. Customize your player template Step 5. Publish your video presentation

Watch the video tutorial or continue reading the article.

How to make a video presentation

Step 1. Add a video narration

Open your slides in PowerPoint. Then go to the iSpring Suite tab and click on Manage Narration .

Managing Narration in iSpring suite

Once the iSpring Narration Editor window appears, you can either record a new video narration or import an existing video file.

Importing a video file

To import an existing video file, click on the Video button in the Import tab.

Importing a video file in iSpring Suite

Find the video file and click on the Open button.

Tip: You can insert multiple videos at once. To do that, press and hold the Ctrl key while choosing several files.

In the Import Video window, you have the choice of importing your video at the current cursor position or at the beginning of a slide of your choice.

Recording a narration

To record yourself narrating on a webcam, click on the Record Video button on the editor’s toolbar.

Record video button in iSpring Suite

The Record Video Narration panel will appear.

You can add a video narration for one or several slides at a time. To record video for the current slide, mark Process current slide only.

Processing current slide only in iSpring Suite

Step 2. Synchronize video with slides

Now it’s time to synchronize your video with your slides and animation effects. The latter are displayed as yellow bars on the Slides timeline. The great thing is that you’ll be able to choose the exact moment when an animation will appear while watching the video. This way, the effects will perfectly correspond to the narration in your video presentation.

Note : This is only applicable if you have animation effects attached to your slides. 

The sync process is quite simple to use. Just place the cursor where the sync should begin and click the Sync button on the toolbar.

Synchronizing video with slides in iSpring Suite

A Sync panel will appear above the timeline. Click on the Start Sync button to start the process.

The Start Sync button will be replaced with the Next Slide or Next Animation button, depending on the next element in sequence. Click on those buttons at the appropriate moments. Hit the Next Animation button at the point in the narration where you would like to start the next animation. For example, if you are listing information, you can have each new item appear when the narrator mentions it in the video narration.

Synchronizing video with slides in iSpring Suite

Once you have finished, click on Done to quit the Sync mode. Then hit the Save & Close button in the upper-left corner.

Step 3. Switch layouts in slide properties

iSpring allows you to publish materials using one of two players: the highly customizable Universal player or the Video Lecture player, which displays the video presentation in a 50/50 layout and allows viewers to change the proportion between video and slides at any time.

The Universal player features three layouts for a video presentation:

Full layout display in iSpring Suite

The No Sidebar layout displays the slide and the navigation panel only.

No sidebar layout in iSpring Suite

The Maximized Video layout displays the video in the center, the slide on the sidebar, and the navigation panel.

Maximized video layout in iSpring Suite

Your slides don’t have to have the same layout. You can highlight key points by changing the proportion between information on screen and the video for each slide. To do that, click on Slide Properties on the toolbar.

Slide properties button in iSpring Suite

In the Layout column, pick the desired layout for a particular slide from the drop-down list.

Desired layout column in iSpring Suite

The layouts for the Video Lecture player can be changed at any time during  playback. You can still preset them, and they will work as follows:

Video lecture full layout display in iSpring Suite

The No Sidebar layout displays the full slide with a miniaturized video.

Video lecture no sidebar layout display in iSpring Suite

The Maximized Video layout will show the enlarged video and a smaller slide.

Video lecture maximized video display in iSpring Suite

It is insisted that you set slides to advance automatically for the entire presentation. To do that, in the Presentation Explorer , select all slides and click on the Auto button.

Step 4. Customize your player template

The built-in presentation player has flexible customization options: you can provide your viewers with the presenter’s info, a brand logo, outline, and more. First, let’s choose what player to use. Click on Player on the product ribbon, and choose whether to use the Universal or Video Lecture player , as shown in the picture.

Customize player select player in iSpring Suite

For this guide on making a video presentation, we will use the Universal player . To customize it, click on Templates . There are a number of player templates to choose from. We will use the Online Lecture with Video template as an example.

Player templates in iSpring Suite

You can also experiment with the settings, doing things like turning off the outline and notes by clicking on the Layout button on the ribbon. Here’s what our player will look like:

Player layout in iSpring Suite

Additionally, you can customize a presentation to match your corporate branding colors by choosing one of the built-in color schemes or creating your own.

Player color scheme in iSpring Suite

When you’ve finished customizing the player, click on Apply & Close in the upper left corner. Well done, you’ve put finishing touches for your video presentation. 

Step 5. Publish your video presentation

When your video presentation is ready, the last step is to publish it to web format so it can be easily accessed via a browser.

In the Publish Presentation window, select the My Computer tab from the left-hand menu. Enter the presentation title and select a Local folder where the presentation will be saved. Under Output Options , choose a format. We’ll be publishing to HTML5 format to make our video presentation play seamlessly across all platforms and devices. You can learn more about publishing presentations here .

Here’s an overview of five of the most powerful yet still easy-to-learn video presentation makers.

1. Camtasia

By default, you can make your PowerPoint presentation into a video by saving it as one. It can be a solid choice if you don’t need narration for this video. But if you need to, you’ll still be able to record narrations from that menu, without going back to the original PowerPoint presentation. 

Here’s what you need to do to download your slides as a video in PowerPoint:

To make your presentation even better, consider the following tips for creating a successful video presentation:

Feel free to learn the answers to a few popular questions about making a video presentation.

How do I make an effective video presentation?

First and foremost, think about your audience. What are their ages, genders, and occupations? What is their prior knowledge on a topic or their level of proficiency? After you define this, choose the way you will present accordingly. You should connect with your audience emotionally and ‘speak their language.’ In this way, you’ll communicate knowledge and the right message to your learners. 

Second, it will be useful to prepare a script for your video. Of course, the slideshow will support you, and you can base your speech on its content. But if you write an intro, outro, some key points, and transition words in advance, you will feel more confident, and reduce rambling or unnecessary pauses. This will help you focus on the effectiveness of your words.

How can I prepare myself for a video presentation?

Make sure you’re physically and technically ready. When speaking, prevent your mouth and throat from getting dry. You can use a lip balm and have a glass of water nearby to refresh during pauses. This will make you sound better, and your recording will be clearer. For recording, it’s better to choose a smaller quiet space to avoid echoes, and check your microphone sound.

What is the best video format for a PowerPoint presentation?

PowerPoint allows you to save your presentation in these video formats: MPEG-4 (or MP4 / .mp4), Windows Media Video (.wmv) or MOV (if it’s PowerPoint on a Mac). MPEG-4 is the most common video format and is widely supported. Opt for this if you have PowerPoint versions 2013, 2016, or 2019. With PowerPoint 2010, the Windows Media format is preferable.

Save a presentation in a different format

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

To make a PowerPoint presentation more accessible to people with disabilities, save it in an alternate format that can be read by a screen reader. Your audience can open it on a personal device or port it to a Braille reader.

Create a Word version of a presentation

In your PowerPoint presentation, select File > Export > Create Handouts > Create Handouts .

word for video presentation

To display the presentation slides first, followed by the presentation notes, select Notes below slides.

To include the slide images in the Word document, select Paste .

To create the Word document, select OK .

Make the Word version of the presentation more accessible

To make your presentation handouts more informative to the screen reader users, add the slide titles as headings and alternative text to each slide image.

Add slide headings

People who use screen readers use headings to navigate the document.

In the Word version, add a colon after each slide number, and then copy and paste the appropriate title from the PowerPoint presentation.

Screen clip of the new Word document showing slide 1 with slide title, The slide shown in the image contains the slide title, the presenters’ names, and a background image of business people around a conference table.

Select the slide title, and then select Home > Heading 1 .

Once you’ve finished adding titles, check the outline of the presentation. Select View > Navigation Pane . Sometimes people who use screen readers or Braille review the navigation first to get an overview of the document.

Add alternative text to slide images

The slides are embedded as images to the Word version of your presentation. As the screen readers don’t read the text in the images, you need to add alternative text repeating the slide text and describing the slide content.

Right-click the slide image, and then select Picture > Alt Text .

Type the alt text that describes the slide content, not only the possible image on the slide. Also, repeat the slide text in the description.

Check the document for accessibility

Select Review > Check Accessibility .

It can be difficult to catch everything that’s covered in a live or broadcast presentation. People with disabilities appreciate an alternative version of the presentation, such as a Word or PDF document.

A Word or PDF version of a presentation can be read by all of your audience members, as well as by anyone using a screen reader. It can also be opened on a personal device, like a smartphone, or ported to a Braille reader.

Here’s a presentation about Skype for Business that we presented at a conference, opened in PowerPoint.

To begin, I’ll select File > Export > Create Handouts .

And then select Create Handouts to create a Word document – I’ll be able to save the Word version as a PDF after I’ve made it accessible.

Now I’ll decide how I want to arrange the pages in Word.

I like to put Notes below the slides, which is easier to navigate with a keyboard or screen reader.

And I’ll select Paste for Add slides to Microsoft Word document.

After a few seconds, the Word version opens.

In Word, I make sure I’m in Read Mode , so I can quickly scan the document.

I can see each slide has its own page with the slide notes below the slide.

Each slide is labeled with the slide number. People who use screen readers appreciate headings, which help them navigate.

I’m going to add some headings.

First, I’ll switch to an edit mode .

I’ll add the slide title and select it.

Now I’ll format it with Heading 1 Style.

Next, I’ll add alt text to the slide images.

These are embedded versions of the slide itself.

Screen readers read the embedded versions of the slide as images, so they don’t read the text in the images. I need to add alternative text repeating the slide text and describing the slide.

I select the first slide picture in the Word document, then right-click.

I select Picture , then select Alt Text .

Now I’ll type the alternative text:

Title slide and the presentation title, names of the presenters, and a description of what the background image shows.

I’ll make both of these changes on each slide.

I can check my progress in the Navigation pane.

Sometimes people who use screen readers or Braille review the navigation first to get an overview of the document.

I’ve finished a few steps to make this document accessible, so I’ll have Word check the document accessibility for anything else.

And it looks like I have only minor issues.

Blank characters are a bit irritating, because screen readers say, “Blank”. So here, the screen reader would say, “Blank Blank Blank Blank” over and over.

To fix these, just select the first item (“6 Characters”), and Word will highlight the location in the document.

I’ll Show paragraph marks so I can see the blank characters.

Here are 6 from the first slide. I’ll go ahead and delete these.

Repeat this for the remaining repeated blank characters from the list.

When I’m finished, I’ll save the document with a meaningful name. I can save it in Word or as a PDF file.

I now have an additional, accessible version of the presentation to share with anyone who needs it.

How to Prepare Presentations with Microsoft Word

A presentation is a process of presenting a product or topic to an audience intended to inform and demonstrate that particular subject. Creating the perfect presentations will support your pitch and could get you to the next level of your objectives. Presentation materials could be a series of creative slides, brochures , flyers , or posters . The document is your key to impress your viewers. Don't have any idea on how to start one? Feel free to read further to find tips and steps on how to create a presentation effectively.

1. Determine the Presentation's Purpose

First and foremost, you should know the purpose of your presentation materials. Are you using it to present new products or  project proposals ? Do you want to show annual sales? You need to consider your intentions to deliver precise information to your audiences.

2. Choose a Layout Design

Presentations come in different layouts. You need to incorporate your design into the purpose of your material. Most presentation materials have simple arrangements with minimal designs. Others prefer their content to have beautiful backgrounds and a clean layout that makes it look appealing. For example, you are doing a presentation for annual sales report . You can choose designs that help you emphasize  datasheets  and numbers for your material to be readable.

3. Pick a Presentation Template

If you don't want to waste time creating presentations from scratch, look for presentation templates on our site that fits your preferences well. These ready-made templates come with unique and aesthetic designs that you can freely adjust. You will find different styles and themed materials to suit any field you are assigned. The editable templates are downloadable in any device you have, along with its graphic designs in file formats like Microsoft Word.

4. Come Up with Essential Details

Once you have your presentation templates with you, start filling in the details you need. Presentations need to be short and precise. You have to summarize your topics no matter how broad it is. Even if it's an annual  business report  or  proposals , your audiences won't be interested in it if you have wordy slides to present. Make sure you have displayed the critical areas of your topic and have it straightforward. 

5. Finalize Infographics 

It is better to add infographics like charts ,  timelines , and illustrations on your presentation to avoid making your material dull and boring. Audiences prefer visual content than texts. They take in more information expressed through figures and images than have it in paragraphs. Infographics will also help you summarize your topics and allow you to squeeze them in one graph or chart.

6. Make your Presentation Engaging

Presentations are more fun and enjoyable if you often interact with your viewers. Get your audience to participate in your discussion as much as possible—it prevents your viewers from getting bored. If you are doing a presentation for a product, it is better to bring in a prop like a physical sample, to entertain your viewers more. It's also the same if you are presenting services. Try handing our marketing brochures and flyers to your audiences to have them more engaged.
