As we’ve mentioned several times, our mission is to help you master the art of presentations! We’ll do this by walking you through the whole process, starting with the moment you create the slides until you get off the stage. This implies that we’re trying to cover various stages in the process: create, deliver and […]
It’s been awhile since we first introduced ourselves to the presentations and startup market, but that doesn’t mean that our work stopped at launch. Using the feedback we got from our users we added a few nice features to ease your work and improved some old ones.
A highly requested feature was the right-click contextual menu. This feature can be of great help for actions like changing a background, changing a shape or an image.
One of the hallmarks of any great speech is having an amazing opening. To properly captivate attention from your audience and have them ready for your presentation, you need to work on crafting an excellent opening that will not only introduce your topic but get people interested to hear the rest of what you have to say.
Crafting some of the best speech openings does take work, but as your presentation skills grow, it can become much easier. Here are some top tips on how to craft better speech openings:
Restaurant presentation is essential for building a brand and a successful business. Creating a beautiful restaurant menu doesn’t have to be difficult, and you could do it through the use of presentation slides.
We know what you’re thinking: but a presentation template is just for making a presentation, right? Well, not quite. It can also be used to create an impressive online menu. Here’s a brief look at how it’s useful.
How can the Q&A session be a curse? To put it briefly – it can kill your presentation.
There are two primary ways you can get cursed by the Q&A session: ending your presentation with it and not managing it properly. Let’s see what that’s about and what “lucky charms” will help keep you safe.
First off –
As we've said before, design and typography skills are not mandatory to use Niftio. That's why we're glad to announce that we improved our slide layouts.
Let's clarify some things first. A slide layout is basically a preformatted slide that contains various placeholders for text, images, charts or any combination between them.
To access the slide layouts panel click on the " < " symbol on the right side of the slides list. There you'll find dozens of great looking, predefined layouts you can choose from.
Before we dive deep into what your pitch presentation should include, we should clarify what is a pitch deck.
A pitch deck is basically a short presentation about your company and your business strategy, which is usually used to when you want to attract new investors or on one-to-one meetings with potential customers.
One way to make sure you make a great impression on your future investors or customers is to give a presentation in which you include at least the following 10 slides:
Presentations are petrifying. Well, at least, most of us would rather avoid a situation where we’d have to stand and speak in front of a crowd, even if that meant sacrificed opportunities or double the amount of work.
I had to hold two valedictorian speeches in my life (notice that I said “had to”, which means I perceived it as a total pain). I did everything wrong during the one at the end of middle school; even my parents said so. At the end of college, however, I did many things right, despite ditching the speech I’ve been preparing the whole week before, right when I walked up front.
There are four basic categories that almost all fonts can be placed under: Serif fonts, Sans Serif fonts, Script fonts and Decorative fonts.
Serif fonts have small, decorative lines added to the basic form of the characters (think Times New Roman) while Sans Serif fonts do not (think Arial). Script fonts have a handwritten style (like the Harlow Solid Italic font used above) while Decorative fonts, as the name suggests, have more details and decorations than other fonts (take Castellar, for example).
We’re all storytellers, thinkers and makers of all sorts.
And naturally, from time to time, we all need to share our ideas in a convincing way to keep our peers focused and interested in what we have to say.
Easier said than done because, although it’s safe to say we are all thinkers, not all of us are designers or visually creative professionals. With this in mind, we created a presentation software to be used by everyone, regardless of our design or typography skills, one app to help us all in our times of need: Niftio.
