5 Tips to Wow With Your Next High-Tech Presentation
The goal of a professional presentation is always to impress, right? You want to get new leads, find new funding, teach important lessons, and so on: You need people to pay attention. But that’s getting harder and harder in this age of digital communication and short attention spans. If you really want to wow your audience, you need to level up your presentation game. Fortunately, we’ve got a few great ideas to help you get started planning your next big event.
We get, the last staging task you want to do is hand out a bunch of expensive mobile devices for your audience to use. But this can be surprisingly effective, especially for smaller audiences. You can provide tablet computers or laptops that allow them to easily follow along more complex presentations that may involve product demonstrations, interactive software, online quizzes, and much more. Making sure everyone has a compatible device allows the presentation to continue smoothly while engaging interest (and if you have to, you can always create an app and ask people to download it, although this is a riskier move).
Upgrade Your Software Choice
What software do you use for a presentation? Are you still on PowerPoint? You may want to enhance the experience by choosing another software option or at least adding a few more tools when creating your content. There are plenty of presentation tools available online to create some astounding effects at high speed. Have you tried Slidedog? Prezi? Glisser? Slidebean? Have you even heard of these tools before? It may be time to schedule space and sit to look at what the world offers for presentations, because it goes way beyond PowerPoint these days.
If you have a dedicated space to give a professional presentation and at least a little time to customize it, why not make it truly impressive? Rent a video screen wall for an extra-large dynamic way of giving your audience something different than the same old projector set-up. These video screens also work very well on the sidelines where they can attract and inform audience members before or after the actual presentation.
Big Sound for the best effect of professional presentation
Did you know you can rent speakers for professional presentation events? You don’t have to stick with the audio system that you are provided with! When it comes to fixing echo, feedback, and other problems, renting speakers may be your best bet – and it lets you add a little extra oomph to your presentation if you use audio segments!
Downloads and Deals
It’s always a good idea to give people something for showing up. It doesn’t have to be big – maybe a product sample, or a free app, or a link to an online discount. Just provide something to compensate your audience for their time, and they will be much more receptive…plus it gives you a chance to collect contact information.
