Now let's get started customizing our social media PowerPoint presentation template:

1. Choose the Slides You Want to Use

The first step to editing your social media template is to choose the slides that you want to use. Upon looking at our template, not all the slides will be necessary for our presentation.

For each slide that you don't want to include in our presentation, right click and choose the Delete Slide option.

When you're going through your templates slides have your presentation's content handy. That way you'll know what specific slides you want to use, and which ones don't fit with the particular content of your presentation. 

2. Choose Your Theme

Each template already comes with a theme. But the current theme doesn't quite match our company's brand identity. The colors on the slides aren't exactly on theme for our brand, so we'll change these.

To change the theme, click the Design tab on the top menu bar. You can select from all the various preset color themes that PowerPoint offers, but we've very specific colors that we want to add. You can create a custom theme that's got the exact colors that are used for our brand from the Design tab.

Navigate to the far right of the design section and click the drop down arrow. From the drop down menu, choose Colors > Customize Colors. This opens up a menu where you can choose the exact color for the various text, accents, and hyperlinks.

Customize the theme to fit your brand and social media campaign PPT.

Input all your custom colors into the various fields and then click the Save button. This will save your current color theme as Custom 1. Now you're ready to add your content to the presentation. 

3. Add In Your Content

Adding your presentations content to your slides is incredibly easy. All you've got to do is double click the text placeholders and paste in your own text. Have all your presentation's content on a document so you can just copy and paste all the information on the slides.

4. Resize and Adjust Text Placeholders

The text placeholders may be the perfect size for the amount of text that's currently in them. But they might be too small or too big for the text that you want to add.

There's an easy fix. Just click and drag the corners of the text placeholders and resize them. Also, click and dragging the text boxes allows you to move them wherever you'd like on the slides. 

5. Change Fonts

Another way to customize your social media PowerPoint template is to change the fonts that were used. You can do this by clicking onto any text area, pressing the CTRL+A to select all the text. Then select a different font from the dropdown menu on the Home tab.

You can also switch to the Design tab and click on the downward arrow under the Themes section. Then, hover over Fonts and choose a different font set.

6. Add Images

Images are a great way to add visual interest to your presentation. Often templates will come with image placeholders where you can just click on the image icon and add an image from your computer. Our template doesn't include image placeholders, but we can easily add images to any one of our slides. 

To do this, click on the Insert tab. Next click on Pictures > Picture from File... This opens up the files on your computer where you can select our specific image that you want on our slide.

7. Customize Slide Backgrounds With Images

Besides adding photos to your slides, you can also set an image as a background. To do this click on the Design tab and select the Format Background option. This opens up a menu on the right hand of the social media PowerPoint.

Then select the Picture or texture fill circle and then select the Insert... button. From there select an image from our computer and it'll be inserted into the background of the slide you're on.

You can also add images to be the background of your slides.

8. Edit the Infographics Data

Our template comes with a ton of great graphics that help us show our company's data. But the display of the infographics doesn't quite match the information that we want to provide for one of our slides. On our "Social Media Statistic by Gender" slide, we want to adjust the circle graphics to reflect our percentages for the certain age groups. 

To adjust the graphics on this page, click on the layer that you want to adjust. In this case it's the white outline on the circle graphic. Then drag the position to more accurately depict the percentage.

9. Customize Icons

Next, we want to replace a graphic that's on one of our slides. We'll navigate to the "Why Use Google+" slide and look to the right hand table. The "50% Google+" section has an icon that we'd like to replace. To start, we'll delete the icon that's currently there.

To do this, highlight the icon and press the Backspace button. Next, we'll navigate to the top header and choose the Insert > Icons option. This brings up a right hand menu of icons to choose from. Select the human looking icon. Click the Insert button at the bottom right hand corner.

Next, we need to change the color of the icon to match our theme.

Change the color by right clicking the icon and choosing the format graphic option. A right hand menu appears again. Click the fill drop down menu. Then click on the Paint Can icon and choose the color white. Our icon is now in the color of our color scheme. Finally, adjust the size of the icon by clicking and dragging to our desired size.

10. Customize the Map

Lastly, you can customize the map to better reflect the data in your presentation. Simply right-click on the country or continent you want to colorize and then select Format Shape. Click on Fill > Solid Fill and select your desired color from the drop-down menu.
