The power of a first impression is one of the most important tools in any trade. Making your customers and other people who are observing your work aver of the fact that you have a good product all falls down to the presentation you will make of the entire thing.
Making a Presentation
There is a lot you can do to improve your presentation skills and to be better at pitching your idea or product to a wide range of people. Making a presentation about all the things you can use in your presentation will take a long time. This is why I just want to go over some of the basics.
Make your presentations short and clear. People will not read and listen at the same time, so your presentation is designed to be orally transmitted you should consider shortening the text on it. On the other hand, if the presentation is meant to be read and observed in person you should give a bit more text.
The thing is people do not like to read a lot of information and if we are completely honest most of us do not like to read at all. Having pictures, strips and animations in the presentation to help people understand what you are talking about will help you a lot. That is if you are not giving an academic presentation, then you are expected to use words in staid of pictures unless they are presentations of findings.
Make sure that the entire thing does not last longer than 45- 60 minutes, or if it is longer, make a break in the middle. Have in mind that our ability to stay concentrated is decreased over time, so a break or a short presentation will help you a lot to keep your audience motivated to listen to you.
Presentations and Your Business
The presentation is everywhere around us, they are not so common as conventional commercials and publicly displayed ads, but they still have merit as a tool for pitching your product to people. Giving some extra thought to what you are presenting will make you a better sales person and will definitely increase your success on the field.
Putting all the necessary information in one place, designing it so people will find it attractive and make sure you do not clutter it with unnecessary information is the best you can do for your business.
Like everything else that has the purpose to transmit some knowledge about something, the presentation should have some basic features that will make the things you are presenting clearer to the people who are listening.
There is no philosophy in this or some complex scientific explanation to why those things should be done like they are, it is more a sort of universally agreed upon method of making a presentation. The following article will explain all the features that should be present.
Every presentation needs to have a neatly designed first slide. This slide should have all the basic information about the presentation on it. The center should be devoted to the title of the presentation and the name of the author or authors. You do not want to put a lot of information on the first slide, just the basics because you will explain everything with the latter slides.
After making the first slide you should consider putting in a short intro about the entire presentation. This means explaining the things you will talk about while at the same time pointing to the major contributions that the lecture will give the observers at the end.
The Body of the Presentation
This is the main part of the presentation and this is where you want to display all the relevant information about the things you are talking about. Some people have the tendency to overdo this part of the presentation by placing a lot of text on the slides. This is a mistake, because people that are looking at the presentation do not have time to read big sentences because they are listening to you That’s why the information you display in the slides should be displayed in short lines that the viewers should glance at if they lose track of what you are talking about and the points on the slides should be clear so if someone writes them down they can remember what you where talking about just by reading a single sentence.
After saying everything you wanted in the presentation the conclusion is here to give a final remark and to point to other similar problems or further thoughts about the topic.
Leaving a good impression is one of the most important aspects of any presentation, besides it having to give the observer certain information about the thing it is observing. Making a good presentation is an art form in itself and there is a lot more you can do than you thought possible. One of the things that you can do to make your presentation stand out is to make a flash animation for it.
What is Adobe Flash animation?
The program features a lot of cool features that people with a range of computer skills can use. The basic principle behind the program is to create 3D animations that can even be extended into movies and they have been. Some of the animations done in this program have even gotten critical acclaim and rewards. So, this program has a wide range of application and the ultimate expression of that is in the fact that you can make your own animated movie with it.
The other thing you need to know about the program is that the files that you create will be available to you in the SWF file format. This is so you know what the end product is. There is also one fun fact I want to share with you. The popular cartoon “Drawn together” was turned into a movie in 2010 but the crew that has been doing the project chose to change the conventional way of animating and used Adobe Flash animations to do the entire movie.
How can I use Adobe Flash in my presentation?
The thing about the program is that it can be used in so many different ways that you cannot say that the entire program should be used for one thing or the other. What I want to say is that you can do a lot with it to make your presentation pop out and make it memorable.
The logic behind the entire process is simple. You have to make your animation as you want it and then use it in your presentation. The option to use it is as simple as uploading the animation file into your presentation where you want it to be and then when the slide comes on it will play the animation and the people that are watching the presentation and listening to you will be surprised. This will surely give a bust to what you are presenting and make it more memorable.
