Why Do YOU Need an Alternative to PowerPoint?
You need an alternative to PowerPoint because the way you’re currently doing presentations does a gross disservice to your company, your brand and how you come across to other people – namely your customers or prospects.
PowerPoint is the lazy person’s presentation tool. It’s presentation outlines and backgrounds go out of their way to make it easy for you to speak from YOUR perspective and YOUR world and NOT the world of your audience. Of course, it doesn’t have to be that way – ultimately you control what goes on the slide – but when you only have a few hours to create a presentation, it just seems silly not to use what PowerPoint has already laid out as a presentation template.
PowerPoint evolved from film strips,, slide projectors and overheads. PowerPoint takes an existing product and makes it more convenient. In other words, instead of writing with a quill, you’re writing with a ball point.
