Presentations are an important part of any business. However, when you are starting a new business and are focused on presenting your business idea, you must convey a strong sense of brand identity right off the bat. In such cases, the business presentation takes on a completely different dimension and today we are going to talk about how we can use these business idea presentations and create a strong brand identity that resonates with the intended audience from the offset.
Focus on core solutions
Any good business idea presentation answers three major questions: why should the audience care about the business, how the business idea is going to change the audience’s way of life, and what value is the business idea going to create for the consumer. What these questions do, is that they outline what the values of the company are and how they align with the values of the audience it intends to chase. This is what forms the major tenet of the brand identity of any company.
Highlight the core brand elements
If the presentation doesn’t highlight the core issues a customer is encountering regularly, the presentation will not be fruitful. One of the most effective ways to capture the audience’s attention Is to start by leading with why they should care about the business idea presented in the first place.
To do the same, the company must highlight all the important brand elements in a clear, effective manner using visual cues that form instant connections in the minds of their audience. Once the major brand elements are highlighted, they must be strung together in the form of a brand story that creates an emotional response in the minds of the audience. Deft use of animations, visuals, and bold text can help achieve this effect in business idea presentations very effectively.
Use visuals to represent the benefits
The next essential step while creating the brand identity is to visually represent the tangible benefit that the intended consumer of the business ideas result is going to experience. A text-heavy slide will not succeed in capturing the attention of the audience and they will eventually lose interest in your presentation. Using visuals will connect the audience instantly with your presentation and they’ll face no difficulty in comprehending your message.
Using visual representations such as timelines, bold text, vector graphics, and minimalist visual design, coupled with an effective in-person delivery can help emphasize what the brand identity stands for. Once this has been laid out and the connection has been made, the value that the business idea is intended to create becomes extremely apparent.
Thus, by taking a 3 pronged approach such as the aforementioned business idea presentation, the presenter can not only outline the identity of his business idea but the identity of what his brand is supposed to be and represent. Not only does this leave a memorable impression in the minds of the audience, but it also acts as the precursor to setting up the larger brand mantra that is going to be defining the business idea as it moves onward and upward.
While a business idea presentation might not seem that important at the start, it has become apparent throughout this piece, it often ends up being the most important part in defining what a company can be right from the ideation stage which makes it even more important than the presentation be created with even more care than what would otherwise be put into it.
