5 Cool PowerPoint Presentation Ideas

Whether your PowerPoint presentation is for your business or for a personal project, you want it to make an impact. Here are five presentation ideas to help you make a memorable presentation.

1. Invest in a Premium Template

You may think it's a good idea to get cool PowerPoint templates free. While it's true that free PowerPoint templates are available, you can't always count the quality to be there. Plus, most free templates don't offer support. You're much better off investing in a high-quality premium template from a reliable provider.

2. Use PowerPoint's Animation Effects

PowerPoint has some great animation tools that can add interest to your PowerPoint Presentation. Here are three great PowerPoint tutorials to help you learn more about animation:

Plus, many of the cool PowerPoint templates in this round up include animation effects.

3. Integrate the Presentation Into Your Branding

This idea is especially important for businesses, but it can also be important for your personal brand. Your presentation should look like it belongs to you or your business. Part of branding includes visual branding:

  • Your logo
  • Your colors
  • Your font

Fortunately, you can easily customize the cool PowerPoint presentation templates described here to add your own personal look and feel.

4. Don't Forget the Title Slide

The title slide is one of the most important elements of a presentation because it's what your viewers see first. It needs to attract attention and make the right impression. A good way to do this is by incorporating an image or even a short video.

5. Stay Focused

It's better to have a shorter, more focused presentation that sticks to the point. Long presentations that stray from your presentation's purpose tend to lose the viewer's attention. Even worse, a rambling presentation could make a bad impression--the very opposite of what you want your presentation to do.
