How to record PowerPoint Presentations

The power of persuasive presentations.

Professional presentations enable you to persuade and influence your audience.

From sales proposals, to webinars and conferences, a good presentation can make or break whether you win or lose a deal, succeed or fail to articulate your main points.

Being able to create professionally designed, auto play presentations, is an amazing communication skill to master.

Whats more, Microsoft have made creating beautifully designed slides effortless. Read on to learn how...

Benefits of recording PowerPoint presentations

Now, Microsoft have enabled you to record your PowerPoint presentations. But why? Being able to record PowerPoint presentations and add your own audio means you can achieve:

  • Results. You can perfect what you say. Simply re-record your speech with each slide until you’re happy with the result.

  • Reach. Struggling to get everyone at the same meeting? Simply record your presentation in advance and email it to everyone in your team.

  • Replay. People can replay points that they may have misunderstood or need reminding about.

How to use recorded Powerpoints

  • Sales Demonstration. Create one presentation shared across your sales team.

  • Training. New business software or procedures? Record a training presentation then share with your team.

  • Reporting. Save time preparing data for your monthly meetings. Create one amazing presentation template and then add the new stats/graphs each month.

Getting your PowerPoint Basics right.

  • Create presentations from scratch or a template.

  • Add text, images, art, and videos.

  • Select a professional design with PowerPoint Designer.

  • Add transitions, animations, and motion.

  • Save to OneDrive, to get to your presentations from your computer, tablet, or phone.

  • Share and work with others, wherever they are.
