A lot of people ask what makes a presentation design agency necessary. In particular, they often ask why they should outsource PowerPoint design instead of simply building a presentation themselves. They may have a designer on staff, or have created PowerPoints in the past, and wonder what the benefits of outsourcing presentation design to a specialist really are.
But the fact is, there’s a big difference between building it yourself, handing it over to a designer who doesn’t specialize in presentation design, and outsourcing it to PowerPoint experts like VerdanaBold.
Here are three key reasons why you should consider outsourcing PowerPoint design for your next presentation:
Good design matters
Not all design is equal. The thought process and planning that go into designing a PowerPoint are wildly different from designing a site, a brochure, or any other type of marketing/sales collateral.
And because presentations are often the key drivers for building a business, the proper application of presentation design principles like pacing, story, photo selection, and animations can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Because unlike other materials, PowerPoints require more than just pretty designs – they require thoughtful and effective communication, with every element working in perfect harmony.
And if you think design isn’t important, when’s the last time you saw someone using a Zune?
Good presentations take time to do well
One of the benefits of a presentation agency is process. We know what works, we know how to build it properly, and we can tap experts on design/writing/strategy.
For example, a traditional graphic designer will typically build a presentation in design software and import into PowerPoint. Not only does this mean it’s not formatted ideally for your purposes, but it also means you’re missing out on many effective ways to enhance your presentation. This leads to additional time spent refining, and missed opportunities to better communicate your message.
And outsourcing presentation design often means less waste. By working with experts, you’ll get a better return on your resources, and use less time to get there.
Good presentations create opportunities
Chances are, the person you are presenting to has seen A LOT of PowerPoints. So if you want yours to stand out and give you the chance to make sales, create connections, or just make your message heard, outsourcing PowerPoint design is a smart way to ensure you are giving yourself more chances to succeed.
There are lots of ways to design a presentation, but outsourcing presentation design is one of (if not the) best. But as we saw above, not every agency or designer will give you the same results.
We are passionate about presentation design because we know how effective communication can help grow your business. So the next time opportunity comes knocking, consider outsourcing your presentation design to the experts at VerdanaBold.
