TREAT A PRESENTATION LIKE AN AD

Think of the amount of money put into developing and executing an ad.
Have you ever realized that maybe your presentations should be just as important?
At a conference, you’re one speaker among many, similar to one ad in a clutter. How do you manage to stand out?  Why should people remember what you’re saying when everyone is saying a lot of important things?
Similar to an ad, there are basic fundamentals to a presentation.

Develop your strategy

In America, we say, if you know what you’re talking about you can say it in one sentence.
Think of your presentation. What’s the one sentence you would say? Are you sure? Well, that’s the point you should repeat at least 3 times starting with your introduction

Know your target

Identify your audience by their needs. Think in their language.
- Why are they sitting in front of you?
- What do they need to hear?
-
Etc.

Know your copy strategy

What is the one big message you want them to get?
Know your positioning
What you need to say to get them to react

Get their attention

Now, that you’ve developed your content, how can you breakthrough the clutter and attract them?

Start with the punch

Just like an ad, you’ve got to get the message across. Presentations should be enjoyable, easy listening.
Your audience is not watching you with blank minds. If you want this already flooded audience to listen to you, it’s going to have to be straightforward and go right to the point. 

Make it clear

Tell your audience where you’re going and how you’re going to take them there. This way, they can follow your arguments more clearly. Don’t forget the 3 r’s—repeat, repeat, repeat. In the introduction you tell them what you’re going to tell them. In the body, you tell them. In the conclusion, you remind them of what you just told them.

Make it Memorable

Be sure to use signposting language so your audience can follow you.
Also, try to create word images so that your concepts are memorable.
Additionally, create visual back up that is easy to follow.
Keep the number of lines down to a minimal and make sure the story pops.

Keep it Interesting

Now you’ve got strong content, be sure to deliver it with impact. How? Start by knowing how to use your intonation. Be sure to script the language:
-
Know which words go together and where to pause
-
Know which words should be emphasized to make your point
-
Know where pauses could help get attention and let the audience regroup their ideas
