How to Know When to Hire a Presentation Designer
4 Tipping Points that Call for Hiring a Professional PowerPoint Presentation Designer
It can be easy to get stuck in a do-it-all mindset that you established in the initial days of your business. You did it all because you had to. It was just you.
Nonetheless, it was exciting and there was still a… thrill to making things happen on your own. You were I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T. It felt good… until it didn’t.
If you’re still in the honeymoon phase of your business, squirrel this post away for safekeeping (maybe in your Monday.com to-do list?) and refer to it the second you start to feel burnout creeping up.
If you already know you don’t want to DIY your PowerPoint presentations, then read on, my friend!
Life is short, and professionals like you don’t have the time to make power-filled presentations that stand out.
Businesses need to be honest about their products or services, show up with confidence, and make an impression that leads to more.
>>> More sales.
>>> More goals reached.
>>> More brand awareness.
In this blog, we’re going to talk about the circumstances you may find yourself in that will require you to take a leap of faith and invest in a competent and talented PowerPoint presentation designer.
1. When you want to compose a compelling story.
Stories sell. That’s the simple truth of it, and there’s no more obvious example of this than when your business is in the spotlight. Whether you’re pitching your proposal to an investor or speaking to a crowd of prospective clients, visually appealing storytelling is a proven sales tool.
Storytelling, as an art form, molds ideas into memorable concepts that interest your audience. When we create PowerPoint decks for important business meetings, industry conferences, and client consultations, they take the information you provide them and add even more value for your business.
Like a well-written novel, we control the timing of information as it’s released to the reader, prompt emotional responses, and organize information in a way that is as easily understood as it is memorable.
2. When you NEED the presentation to go smoothly.
It’s Murphy’s Law. When you want and NEED a presentation to run smoothly, there’s a glitch. Inevitably, something goes wrong. And when that happens, an already tense presentation can become a high-stress disaster.
For this reason, it can be beneficial — even wise — to have a PowerPoint designer on hand who understands your mission and doesn’t have the business’ internal curse of knowledge. When your goal is to impress your audience, our goal will still be to serve you. That’s a powerful alliance.
Ideally, a great graphics operator will also be a seasoned presentation specialist, who would be able to make quick changes, make suggestions for better flow and make you feel comfortable. You should be speaking to your audience — not making sure you clicked for the next slide!
3. When you want to make a lasting impression.
When you need to stand out, your presentation is the key to convincing your audience that your brand is deserving, impressive, and needed. The right PowerPoint presentation designers will know how to use white space, colors, and graphics to engage their target audiences and make sure your message sticks.
If your business is in the process of developing a brand, this is the perfect time to enlist the help of a presentation designer. Remember, branding is all about the consistent experience you’re creating with your audience.
4. When you don’t have an artistic bone in your body.
You’re great at what you do (there’s not one person who will argue with you there), but your business requires you to do many tasks outside of your wheelhouse.
Instead of spending tons of time stressing over creating presentations that wow your audience, ask for help from visual storytellers and presentation designers.
A design-led approach to your business presentation will help you create an unforgettable and engaging presentation.
Investing in a professional presentation designer will pay off, especially if your immediate business goals include brand awareness, profitability, and expansion opportunities!
