Perhaps you’ve been lulled to sleep by PowerPoint. Perhaps you’re feeling PowerPoint 2010 wasn’t fundamentally different from PowerPoint 2007 (or PowerPoint 2003 for that matter). Perhaps you have a right to demand a fresh approach to presentations!
Truth is, hundreds of thousands of people have shunned PowerPoint and opted for greener pastures. And as it turns out, people have found the online presentation pasture to be the most lush!
Of course, online presentation builders are more than just uploading slides to a website. And they’re more than a rehash of standard PowerPoint features moved online. Online presentations reinvent the whole premise of presentations. Here’s a taste of the sumptuous capabilities offered by the best online presentation builders:
Presentations By The Numbers
Across websites, email, search engines, social media and online advertising, marketers want to know the numbers. But when was the last time you reported the number of views your presentations receive? Do you track which slides in your sales presentation are performing best? Presentation analytics that are baked into presentation builders track viewer behavior at multiple levels – from number of views, to time spent on each slide, to capturing leads with registration forms.
Wake Me Up When They’re Ready to Buy
Presentation alerts are the realtime expression of presentation analytics. They tell you the moment your presentation has been viewed – a feature very similar to marketing automation tools that notify you when your email has been opened or clicked. But instead of a complex workflow, presentation alerts are enabled by just checking a box.
Start Meetings on a Positive Note
Launched directly from your presentation, web meetings integrated with the presentation builder do away with the complexity of GoToMeeting and Webex. Your viewers simply click a link to join your meeting without the hassle of downloading software, granting access to their computer and having to find the required browser.
Fresh and Fast Comments
Gathering reviews of your presentation can be a bear to manage. Online presentation builders enable you to make changes even after you’ve requested feedback, so everyone reviews the most up to date version. And all comments are made right in the presentation, so no more chasing disparate emails trying to recreate who said what.
Libraries You Don’t Need to Be Quiet About
How quickly could you assemble a presentation if you had immediate access to the latest versions of your company’s best presentations, slides and images? Online presentation builders make it a reality with centralized libraries that also enable you to collaborate on presentations no matter where your team members are located.
