As bloggers and entrepreneurs, it’s often one of the hardest things to keep the attention of your audience while also getting your message across. This is something that many people struggle with, especially when they are speaking to an audience during a conference or meeting.
One of the best ways to keep the attention of your audience and keep them grasping on your every word, is to allow them to follow along with a high-quality PowerPoint slide loaded with visuals, data points and a constant flow of engaging data.
Unfortunately for most people, this is easier said than done. The amount of time it takes to find a quality PowerPoint slide, format it in a design and style that matches your branding or even coming up with a custom template of your own could take several hours just itself.
For times like these, it’s great to have online marketplaces that allow you to quickly browse through thousands of professional and custom designed PowerPoint presentation templates to create slide decks, presentations, meeting discussions and much more.
SlideModel – Endless PowerPoint Presentations are Just a Click Away
When it comes to creating a slide deck for a speaking session or meeting, the process is pretty straight forward. Create a PowerPoint with all of your data points, speak to the slides and watch as everyone in the room starts to fall asleep!
Unfortunately, that’s usually the case and this is usually due to someone choosing a default template within PowerPoint or Keynote and then just plugging their data points in. However, if you were to take the time to prepare for a high-impact presentation filled with colors, branding and data charts, the attention of your audience would be much easier to grasp.
This is exactly what SlideModel.com set out to accomplish when they created their online marketplace with thousands of slide templates to choose from. It’s not just about providing a service, it’s about making it easier for people to pick a slide, implement it and present better to audiences — without the need to be a PowerPoint expert.
With this concept in mind, SlideModel.com has a very user-friendly interface that anyone will know how to use and navigate within just the first few seconds when using their site. Since nearly everyone accessing their site is likely in need of PowerPoint slides, that’s what they specialize in while making it easy for their audience to find what they are looking for.
The search box at the top of the page is one of the best locations to start. If you are preparing for a presentation on business analytics, financials or even to pitch your startup, simply plug any relevant keywords into the search box and you will find all matching slides on their site.
In addition to the search box, you can use the categories listed on the left side of the page or through the contextual categories on the top menu of all pages. Another great way to browse through the site is to simply click a slide you like, then see all of the relevant slides the site will recommend as well.
Once you do come across a presentation that fits your needs, all you need to do is click on it to see it’s detailed information, screenshots of additional slides and ratings from other users.
To give you an example of why SlideModel.com is one of the best slide resource sites out there, we can take a look at their Light Bulb PowerPoint Template, and walk through the many features and details typically found on any individual slide page.
Each presentation and slide deck on SlideModel includes:
- Screenshot of all slides available within each template.
- Slide details with total number of slides and user ratings.
- Supported versions (PowerPoint, Keynote and supported versions).
What most speakers and individuals don’t realize is that PowerPoint has a lot more to offer than just their basic templates and bullet point features. For example, SlideModel has a great selection of PowerPoint themes and diagrams, such as funnels, process flow diagrams, SWOT templates and more, which are ideal for replacing text rich slides with more descriptive visual representations.
A good example of this would be is someone was describing a process instead of using a bullet list (or built-in smart art), where you can select a professionally designed diagram to replace the text. PowerPoint Diagrams are also a great way to display organizational setups and also help in avoiding Death by PowerPoint.
Dashboard Templates are another useful set of presentations offered through SlideModel, which makes it easy to display data-rich reports or for when you want to use fancy graphs and charts. To see how Dashboard Templates can be used for your next presentation, be sure to check out the quick YouTube video below.
Easily Download and Customize Templates
Imagine purchasing a software or product and opening the files and having it work exactly how you expected? That’s exactly what I experienced when downloading a template through SlideModel and started to customize it’s look and feel to match my brand.
In short, all I had to do was place the order for the template through their site. Download the file. Open it up and watch as it works perfectly in both PowerPoint and Keynote.
You can see a screenshot of the presentation below.
There is good news for Google Slides users, as this presentation tool is also supported. You can either import the templates into a new Google Slides presentation or use any of the pre-made Google Slides templates provided by SlideModel. The elements and text placeholders are preserved.
All slides within SlideModel feature detailed information that display all working versions and compatible software for each file. Be sure to view these data points before downloading or purchasing your desired template.
How Much Do SlideModel Templates Cost?
Nothing is more valuable than your time, and the last thing you want to do is waste it with the editing and formatting of your slide deck. This is especially true if you are the actual speaker or presenter, who should be focusing most of your time on the important data points and message you need to deliver
This is something that every individual, brand, business and speaker needs to consider — especially when you look at the low investment of setting up your own SlideModel membership account. (see plans & pricing page).
To start downloading presentations and slides from SlideModel, you will need to set up a membership account. Access to SlideModel is charged on a timely basis, as in days, months and annual access. The starter plan, called One Day Access provides a download quota of 5 templates for a period of 24 hours — which would be perfect for anyone who is looking to make a one-time purchase for a rare presentation that they might have to deliver.
For the individual who might need to sporadically throw a presentation together, the “One Day Access” plan might be best for you. However for experts who continually find themselves speaking at different events throughout the year and for brands or businesses of all sizes, the “Annual Unlimited” plan was created just for you.
Maximize your return on investment by having access to unlimited downloads, access to priority support, direct uploads to cloud accounts (Dropbox, Google Drive) and 10 seat licenses to provide access to your team.
If the “One Day” or “Annual Unlimited” plans seem to small or large for your needs, SlideModel also has an “Annual Basic” plan for everyone in between. With this plan you will have access to a high quota of downloads that will never disappoint. This plan also provides access to the SlideModel support center where professional designers will reply to your questions and presentation needs.
No matter what business, industry or profession you are currently in, there is always going to be a need for high-quality presentations and slide decks to deliver your message. Having seen the wide selection of presentations and features available through SlideModel.com, we highly recommend using their site for all future presentations, webinars or data sharing of any kind.
