Powerpoint, Sales Presentation, Demo, Value What do you usually use to give a sales presentation? PowerPoint by default, yeah? And doesn’t it get too old and boring now? Today, I’m sharing with you why I actually stopped using PowerPoint several years ago and how I got converted to a more remarkable tool.

So you see I switched from using PowerPoint (PPT) to Prezi. Prezi is an interactive presentation software that customers will actually enjoy and definitely remember.

My Prezi Experience

I got tired of using the same, old, boring slide presentations. So I used Prezi while I was doing presentations when I was hustling back in the world of software sales. It was something that our competitors weren’t doing so it made us stand out from the pack. And I’ve used Prezi since then.

The other day, I gave a keynote presentation in New Orleans through Prezi and people came up to me afterwards to ask about the tool I was using. It simply blew them away! It offered them an experience and they came back for more. They wanted to learn more and go further. Basically, it made me stand out against everyone else.

How Prezi can help you put out awesome presentations:

  • It helps you differentiate yourself from what everybody else is doing.
  • It helps you tell a story that several other tools can’t.
  • You can use whiteboard features where you can tell a story and build on something.
  • It helps your prospects become more engaged and be able to understand complex things a bit easier because their broken down into a simpler process.
  • People remember you for it because of the rich experience you’re able to deliver.

Now if you’re going to do the same old slide deck that everyone else is doing and doing the same thing – talking about your company history, mission statement, and whatnot, that’s totally going to drown you out since you’re not any different than the rest.

You need to STAND OUT from the pack.
