In the fast-paced business environment that we all find ourselves in today, it’s never been more important to be able to effectively communicate business goals, strategies, and results with your organization.
In order to do this proficiently, the simplest and most direct option is still to design a PowerPoint presentation that clearly illustrates the desired topic. I don’t know about you, but while this may be the best option, designing PowerPoint slides is not my strong suit. That’s where SlideModel PowerPoint Templates can help.
Using the professionally designed templates put together by the SlideModel team, I’ve been able to create presentations that impress and they take half the time to put together compared to when using stock slides. I believe this is because I spend a lot less time trying to make bland stock slides engaging and stylish (SlideModel’s templates are pro-grade “right out of the box”), and more time crafting the actual content of my presentations.
Today I want to go over the four main template categories that SlideModel offers and illustrate how they can help you impress at work or even run your own business.
Using SlideModel’s Business Templates to Pitch to New Clients
In their business template section, SlideModel has designs for any presentation need. There’s templates for brochures, data-analysis, and many other presentation types. The template I want to focus on is their Formal Business Presentation Template because I think it’s a great example of how SlideModel can make your presenting process more compelling and streamlined.
Don’t let the name fool you. “Formal” does not mean “boring” in this case. This PowerPoint template comes equipped with 24 unique slides that will capture your audience’s attention. It’s clear that SlideModel put a lot of thought into what it takes to build a powerful pitch to prospective clients, with slides for your company’s mission, services, results, and even previous clientele.
While I think that the preset headers and content slides are more than enough for an effective presentation, it’s important to remember that all of SlideModel’s templates are completely editable to your specific needs. What SlideModel offers in their Formal Business Presentation Template is a great “skeleton” for you to build a pitch around that converts prospective clients into new ones.
Launch New Products With SlideModel’s Strategic Templates
Strategy is the name of the game in all business ventures. Whether you run your own business, or work helping someone run theirs, it’s crucial to have a clear image of what the company’s strategies look like. SlideModel has got strategy templates for almost any scenario you could think of, from VRIO models to lean startup planning, but my favorite strategic template is actually one of the simplest: Basic Strategic Plan Template.
Like I mentioned, I value this template for its simplicity and clear communication of a of strategy, like in a new product launch. With this template, you can clearly outline your product launch’s objectives, actionable steps in preparing for launch, as well as benchmarks for success. All of these factors can be concisely explained using Slide Model’s Basic Strategic Plan.
Because it is so customizable, I would also recommend this template for planning content and revenue strategies.
Plan Marketing Strategies That Convert Using SlideModel’s Marketing Templates
While the previously mentioned strategy templates could be used for marketing plans, SlideModel went a step further and dedicated a portion of their selection to marketing-specific templates. I’m going to highlight a great template for use in social media marketing campaigns, the Marketing Campaign Dashboard Template.
This is a great way to keep track of your marketing campaign as it relates to budget and conversion. You can keep track of stats like money spent, number of visitors from your campaign, and specific social media outlet statistics.
Keeping track of a marketing campaign is crucial in order to keep from wasting money on ineffective strategies. The customizable campaign dashboard allows me fine-tune the template to fit my marketing strategies and keep track of data points that are important to me.
Present Strengths and Weaknesses with A SWOT Template
The fourth template section on SlideModel.com is dedicated to SWOT presentations. SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. This is a great template to have for monitoring ways you can improve business as well as what kinds of things your competitors are trying that could be a threat to your bottom line.
Once again, SlideModel has put a lot of work into making sure you have the right SWOT template for your needs, instead of designing only one generic SWOT presentation.
If you’re a supervisor at your company, these presentations can be great for keeping track of your employees’ wins as well as motivating them against potential competition.
SlideModel’s Other Tools
I’ve discussed the different presentation templates SlideModel offers, but they also have a wide array of other tools to help you convey information effectively. You can use their maps, charts, tables, and shapes (all just as editable as the presentation templates) to dive deeper and better explain your presentation topic.
The Final Word
A service like SlideModel may not be for everyone. For instance, a graphic designer with PowerPoint design experience may want complete control over her presentation. However, for the rest of us, SlideModel offers a service that takes the drudgery out of presenting information to a business audience and makes you look like a PowerPoint Pro at the same time.
