In Germany there is a large number of different PowerPoint service providers. Customers can choose from a single company to a large agency. But which PowerPoint service is the right one? We would like to give you some suggestions on how to find the right PowerPoint agency for you.
If you want to hire a PowerPoint agency for your next presentation, you probably value top quality and you want to be sure that your audience will experience a convincing presentation. An external service provider should support you in achieving the best possible result. But where do you find the right PowerPoint agency? What should you consider before hiring and what criteria must a provider meet? The following questions should help you make the right choice.
Do I really have to have my slides created by a PowerPoint agency?
That depends very much on the goal you are pursuing with your presentation. The more important the goal is, the more important the quality is. If you only create slides from time to time, or if you have only created simple presentations for internal meetings, you do not have enough experience for sophisticated slide design. Really professional results can be achieved with service providers who offer presentations as a focus.
Which is better – a good all-rounder or a real PowerPoint specialist?
Of course, large marketing and advertising agencies also offer PowerPoint as a service. However, it will be rather rare that an employee is hired there exclusively for this topic. It will rather be the case that presentation slides are offered for an advertising campaign. These agencies certainly know how to integrate the corporate design and how to create a slide. What you rather cannot expect here are individual consultations that result in exactly the tailor-made solution that would be optimal for you. Real PowerPoint experts have the advantage that they have already created numerous presentations for a wide range of companies and target groups. They ask the right questions, they know which messages should be conveyed and how to put these messages into the right perspective.
Should I have my entire PowerPoint presentation professionally created or is a good revision sufficient?
This brings us back to the area of priorities. If you are planning a new company presentation or a sales presentation, then you should try to get the best out of it. In fact, you will only really succeed if you involve the PowerPoint agency of your choice as early as possible. If the concept and structure are not professionally planned from the beginning, it will be very difficult to correct wrongly set priorities and inappropriate concepts afterwards. The agency will conduct a detailed briefing interview with you to understand your company and your products and to present them in the best possible light. Good presentation agencies will ask you about the target groups to which your presentation should be directed. This way, you will receive an individual solution that will really pick up and convince your audience.
But of course, it is also quite sensible and effective to have an existing PowerPoint presentation reworked. Because even when the concept and structure have already been determined, the right PowerPoint agency can turn the individual slides into little masterpieces that can be turned into a “game changer” with brilliant design and convincing visual language. A presentation revision makes sense for every appearance in front of an external audience. The difference in quality will be considerable.
How do I find the right PowerPoint agency?
You can use social media such as Xing or Linkedin to ask your contacts or regional groups if someone can give you a tip. Of course you can also start a search query on Google and enter, for example, “PowerPoint Agency Frankfurt” or “Presentation Agency Frankfurt”. A series of results will be displayed. Small and large agencies, providers that are in your immediate vicinity or in the nearest city. You can take your time to look at the websites of the individual providers and decide which agency appeals to you most personally. Probably this will not be enough to make a really satisfying selection. You will have to have a personal conversation with some providers you find particularly interesting. You will find out how professional the various agencies are. What exactly do they offer, what special services or skills do they have to offer? What does the project management look like, what references can they provide. Think carefully about what you would like to know before a meeting. Afterwards you should have the necessary information to choose the right PowerPoint agency for your project.
