Powerpoint is Dead
Another PowerPoint .
Chances are, you have had that exact same thought any time a presenter gets out a clicker and the first slide pops up. And you’re not alone. We all know how much of a timewaster a PowerPoint is. Even the world’s top entrepreneurs like Jeff Bezos, Jack Dorsey and Mark Cuban avoid it like the plague.
PowerPoint Power Drain
No one likes a boring slide show.
According to some sources, there are 30 million PowerPoint Presentations every day. Especially in this business climate, time is money. And time wasted is money lost. Steve Jobs once said, “People who know what they’re talking about don’t need PowerPoint.”
A recent study from Harvard stated that: “PowerPoint was rated (by online audiences) as no better than verbal presentations with no visual aids. According to cognitive load theory, showing audiences the same information that is being spoken reduces audience comprehension. And that’s simply because we can’t read and listen at the same time. However, there is a better way.
PowerPoint Power Drain
Many companies are already letting go of PowerPoint and moving onto video, whether that be for presentations or for business pitches.
And this is why videos have such massive advantages:
Most households have at least one computer, but everyone nowadays always has a shiny smartphone in their pocket. And this means videos can be played at anytime, anywhere. Public speaking is high on the list of common fears just below snakes and spiders, and for good reason. However, you could just easily play a video and let it do the talking for you.
Every computer in your office is equipped with the Microsoft Office suite, and even then, you may not know how to stand out. Clip art just isn’t what it used to be. But videos have been shown to be much more engaging for viewers’ attention (and being much faster.)
Most people reading this likely have a grasp on the English language, but even then, it can be hard to convey your thoughts effectively. But video can be accompanied with animations that can easily explain your message better than speech alone ever could.
