Are you preparing slides for an upcoming webinar? After preparing content and script, it’s time to work with PowerPoint. See how you can create the killer webinar presentation to engage your audience.
Either it’s your first or 107th webinar, the goal is the same: engage people and provoke an action. Usual webinar presentation utilizes a PowerPoint 99.9% of the time unless you are hosting a webinar demo of a software platform. So it’s useful to learn some new tricks if you hold webinars quite often 🙂
In this post, I’ll guide you through 4 steps towards engaging webinar presentations.
Step 1: Choose Appropriate Slides Structure
Start with getting attention: present the question you’re going to discuss today to set the mood and check if everyone’s on the same page. Consider big picture slides for titles and quotes.
Step 2: Change the Slide Content
I advise expressing facts by simple infographics instead of plain numbers. There are plenty of diagram shapes you can choose from. Then you can change colors and add icons (see next step) to highlight particular numbers or facts:
Step 3: Illustrate your Webinar Items by Icons
Represent topics you talk about with pictures and symbols. Express status and categories by visual symbols for better understanding.
Step 4: Modify Colors if Needed
PowerPoint tools allow changing colors and sizes quickly. Simply click on the shape you want to change and fill it with the appropriate color.
- Select slide supporting your webinar structure
- Edit slide content to explain your webinar topic visually
- Illustrate items by icons
- Adapt colors to your brand
