If the idea of proposing an idea or even a solution to a problem seems daunting to you, it might just be that you don’t know what sort of tech you can use to back yourself up. It used to be that your presentation was going to be a mixture of content, charisma, presence, and speaking voice, but now there are a host of further tools to use.Specifically, if you’re going to use technology to help with your proposal message, consider understanding the business presentation format first, and then moving into the ideas of the YouTube format, how a prototype could help, the benefits of multimedia support, and making sure to avoid gimmicks as well.
Understanding the Business Presentation Format
The best presentations are often going to be in business presentation format. There are a tremendous number of free but valuable presentation guides available on the web, and by skimming through some of the most popular, you’ll quickly pick up the basics, and then be able to move onto advanced techniques that specifically suit your topic, audience, and overall intent.
Thinking In Terms of YouTube
One place to find lots of successful ideas and solutions is on YouTube. With just a quick search, you’ll see millions of different uploads about every topic imaginable, and you can scan through which methods people are using that seem successful. The tech involved in creating good material in this realm is often going to be choosing the right camera for your particular purposes. In the last several years, there have been major increases in quality as well, which gives creators and producers of these proposals even more flexibility at a lower cost point.
Creating a Prototype
With new 3D printing technology available, it’s often an interesting opportunity to print out a physical copy of what you’re proposing as an idea or a solution. This is a fantastic way to prove that you’re serious enough about you idea to invest in a way to bring a working version of it into the world in order to present.
Using Multimedia Support
Multimedia support is another big part of a good proposal these days. You want the latest video projectors, synchronized audio sources, physical objects if possible, a blackboard, paper you can write on – any additional medium that can be used to give legitimacy to your message, have them ready and available!
Avoiding the Gimmick
However, though tech is going to be available to you, don’t use it for the sake of itself! If you don’t need the bells and whistles – if they don’t support the message behind your idea or solution – then leave them out. Tech is only good if used properly under the right circumstance.
