A PowerPoint designer can relieve some of your workload by handling the so-called “heavy lifting” involved with putting together a PowerPoint presentation. Some of the most effective presentations are those that are built with custom templates, one-of-a-kind backgrounds, short sound clips, etc. While you may have the content ready for a presentation, coming up with the various visual and audible design elements may be a task you don’t have the time or required amount of attention to detail to attend to.
When considering a pool of PowerPoint specialists to choose from, here are some questions to ask:
- does the designer charge by the hour, or by the project?
- will the designer utilize your specific requests, or work with his or her own ideas?
- can you provide your own images and audio clips for usage in the presentation?
- how quickly can the designer provide a draft mock-up for you to critique?
- can the designer meet a tight deadline?
- will you retain all rights to your presentation?
- are there any discounts or other promotions for multiple slideshows?
By taking the time to ask these questions (as well as any others you may have), you’ll greatly improve your chances of a completely satisfactory experience.
