There have already been big discussions on how a presentation must be, to set up the communication between the businesses and the clients, and how it should be created so that the right message reaches the targeted audience.
But still, many struggles in making those presentations the way these should be. We cannot talk about a specific formula for a successful presentation as the subject and the objective for every presentation is always different. Yet there are some tips that have been universal for all and following them will help the presenters to build the best presentations for achieving their goals.

Be Ready With the Content: First of all, you must be ready with the content for the presentation. You can’t just copy-paste the points and assume that the presentation will go well. You need to have an outline planned for the slideshow and based on that you will have to prepare what goes into the presentation and in which sequence. An ill-written content or unnecessary objects in the presentation is only going to ruin it for you. So be careful while choosing what is going to be on the presentation slides. The texts need to be precise yet capable of delivering the message of the presentation properly. There must be more multimedia and images so that the audience understands your point well without putting extra effort to read and grasp things in such a short period.

Go Outside PowerPoint: Though you get many options in PowerPoint itself, try not to limit your content to PowerPoint only, but try to build special graphics that represent your presentation well than any clipart of PowerPoint would do. There is software like Photoshop, or you can go to some animation websites online, which provide free access, such that you can make attractive images and graphics. Having great visuals is a must for the success of a presentation.

Play with Templates: Templates help in setting the mood of a presentation and reduce the efforts of the creator to a great extent. Find a template that goes with the theme of your presentation, and you do not have to put many things onto the slides to make them look attractive. You can use the templates available on PowerPoint or simply download them online. Also, you can design your template yourself too. Making the template by yourself will be easier as you know what you want for your presentation.

Formatting and Aligning the Objects: Though a great template will guide you on how every slide should look, you must give extra effort to the formatting of the texts and the alignment of the objects on every slide. Try to limit the number of fonts and font size to three or less. The headings, paragraphs, and bullet points must have consistent font size and style throughout the presentation. This makes the texts look neat and readable, and shows the importance of each effectively. Also, the alignment of objects like the headings, texts, images, or graphics must be similar on every slide to give them a consistent and attractive look.

Proper Use of Animations: Animations and transitions bring life to the presentations, but they must be used in a limited manner. Too many transitions and animations will make the presentation look more clumsy, making the audience lose interest. And when you are presenting a presentation on an online presentation sharing website, you can’t expect many views on the same, as the viewer is going to lose their interest at the very beginning of the presentation. So make sure you are putting as many animations or transitions as are necessary for the presentation.

PowerPoint Shapes: Microsoft PowerPoint offers multiple options to make your presentation slides engaging, Shapes being one of them. The Shapes features can be used to make custom shapes or cut out images to make them into some shapes giving a dynamic look to the slides.

Apart from all that, try to make presentations simple as you can, because a simple presentation is more systematic and helps people to look at things more clearly. Online or offline, a presentation must be capable enough to keep the targeted audience engaged. So these are some universal PowerPoint tips that are beneficial for both online and offline presentations.
