Marketers are always looking for creative ways to stand out. One way that companies can stand out is by having creative and visual presentations that really impress prospective and current clients. There’s nothing worse than using old presentation templates and the cut and copy bullet points and fonts. While this may convey the message, your listener may doze off halfway through and then your efforts will be rendered useless.
At CustomShow we really value the importance of both function and design. We developed at software that helps cross functionality between marketers and sales people. By using a platform in the cloud, here are four ways that presentations can be integral with your quality marketing process.
1. Branding and messaging consistency
There’s few things more important than having a consistent and unified message. It’s important that you think through what you’re going to say, craft that story around what you’re going to say, and make it simple enough that it gets through. Using the right words, pictures, structure, and saying it over and over again are all elements that go into a great presentation. Regardless of your presentation (Marketing, Malaysia market report, etc.), you must have a consistent and useful message.. Many people don’t really think about why they’re putting the presentation together. It’s imperative that they know the purpose and they stay true to that purpose. Being clear about the reason you’re presenting and backing it up with a well thought out message is vital to a company’s success.

2. Brand equity/version control
If you’ve ever been a part of a long email train with multiple versions of the same presentation being passed around you’ll know that this is definitely not an effective way of keeping things in order. Instead of looking through dozens of old emails in order to find the most recently updated version, CustomShow’s cloud based slide library management system allows you to keep everything organized and update across all versions. Check out our post showing a step by step on how easy it is to implement changes with a single update. This consistency helps brand equity and keeping the marketing message strong.
3. Time Saving
Any time you’re spending editing and building presentations is time taken away from other vital tasks. This is the reason CustomShow was created to be simple yet elegant. You can quickly build and edit seamless presentations. Giving teams in different locations the ability to edit in real time is also a valuable time saver. The interface is simple yet also allows the use of multimedia such as video background and other elements that make your presentation stand out from the rest. Whether you’re trying to teach how to write meta descriptions or share social media marketing experience, this is a much more simplified way to achieve it.
4. Cross Team Collaboration
Instead of having to wait for your office in California or Chicago to get back to you with revisions, you have the capability to set up a time for everyone to hop on and review and edit together. All in all our platform is designed with you in mind with the ultimate goal to simplify your process, make an impact and deliver results.
With every good presentation is a good presentation builder that fit the intricacies and identity of your organization. At CustomShow, we believe our presentation software can do just that.
