How to make a product presentation[The ultimate guide]

Imagine you’ve spent countless hours developing a new product that you know will revolutionize the industry. You’re confident that once people see what you’ve created, they’ll be eager to get their hands on it. But the challenge now is making your target audience see it in the best possible light.


That’s where a product presentation comes in. A well-crafted presentation can help you showcase the features and benefits of your product in a way that is engaging and persuasive.


In this article, we’ll provide you with the ultimate guide to creating a product presentation that will wow your audience and make them eager to take action.


What’s a product presentation?

A product presentation is an opportunity to showcase your brand’s shining star: your product. Whether you’re presenting a new gadget, a fancy piece of software, or a life-changing service, it’s your chance to really show off what you’ve got. Think of it like a fashion show, but instead of models strutting down a runway, you’re the designer and your product is the star of the show.


At its core, a product presentation is a chance to connect with your audience and share your passion for your product. It’s a platform to demonstrate its unique features, communicate its benefits, and convey why it’s better than the competition.


This is what Steve Jobs had to say about product presentations…


“A product presentation is like a first date. You only have one chance to make a great first impression. Make it count.”  —  Steve Jobs

What are the use cases of a product presentation?

A product presentation is a versatile tool with different use cases depending on your target audience.

  • Investors: Showcase your product’s potential to convince them to invest in your company.

  • Customers: Demonstrate the features and benefits of converting them into paying customers.

  • Employees: Provide them with a clear understanding of the product for better customer service and support.

  • Partners: Demonstrate how it can help achieve their business goals & build strong collaborations.



How to make the ultimate product presentation

Are you tired of giving lackluster product presentations that fail to engage your audience? It’s time to step up your game!


Creating an ultimate product presentation requires careful planning and attention to detail. At Ink Narrates, we follow a tried-and-tested process to ensure that we create presentations that meet our client’s goals and resonate with their target audience.


Here’s a closer look at our process…


Step 1: Know your audience & establish your goal

Before you even begin to create your product presentation, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of who your target audience is and what message you want to convey through your presentation. Who are you trying to reach? What are their pain points and needs? What is the main objective of your presentation — to inform, persuade, or demonstrate? Understanding your audience will guide your entire product presentation.


For example, if you’re presenting a new health drink to a group of fitness enthusiasts, you would want to highlight the drink’s nutritional benefits, explain how it fits into a healthy lifestyle, and use visuals that showcase the drink’s refreshing and energizing qualities.


Step 2: Setup a narrative structure for the deck

A well-structured narrative engages your target audience and makes your presentation memorable. Your narrative should tell a story that connects your audience with your product and presents a solution to their pain points. It should have a clear beginning, middle, and end, and should flow seamlessly from one point to the next.


One effective structure to consider is the Pain-Agitate-Solution (PAS) approach. This approach starts by identifying the pain or problem that your target audience is experiencing and highlights the consequences of not addressing that pain.


For example, let’s say you are presenting a SaaS product that helps small businesses manage their inventory. You could start your product presentation by highlighting the pain points of manual inventory management, such as time-consuming manual processes, high error rates, and a lack of visibility into inventory levels.


Next, you can agitate the pain by emphasizing how these pain points can negatively impact the business, such as lost sales, overstocking, or stockouts. By making the pain more visceral and emotional, you can help your audience recognize the urgency of the problem and the need for a solution.


Finally, you can introduce your solution as the remedy to their pain points. In the case of the SaaS product, you could present the benefits of the software, such as faster inventory management, real-time inventory tracking, and automated replenishment. By linking your product’s features and benefits to the pain points and consequences you’ve established, you can clearly demonstrate how your product can help solve their problems and improve their business outcomes.


Step 3: Write the slide content based on the narrative structure

First and foremost, when crafting slide content, it’s important to keep in mind that less is often more.


Instead of trying to cram in as much information as possible onto a single slide, focus on distilling your message down to its core essence. This will help you to create a clear and concise narrative that will resonate with your audience.


One way to achieve this is to use bullet points rather than paragraphs of text. Bullet points allow you to break your information into smaller, more digestible chunks that are easier to read and understand. Use these bullet points to highlight the most important pieces of information and to emphasize key takeaways.

Step 4: Determine a good design style & design your presentation

The design of your presentation can make or break your message. Your design should complement your content and highlight the key messages you want to convey. Choose a color theme and typography that aligns with your brand, and use visuals that help tell your story.


For example, if you’re creating a product presentation for a new line of children’s toys, you might use bright colors, playful typography, and photos of children playing with the toys to create an engaging and fun design.


Step 5: Get feedback

Finally, it’s important to get feedback on your product presentation before presenting it to your audience.


Share your presentation with a small group of people and ask for their honest feedback. Consider their input and make any necessary changes to ensure that your presentation is effective and engaging.


How to deliver a product presentation like a pro

  • Practice, practice, practice: The key to delivering a great product presentation is to rehearse it until you can do it in your sleep. This will help you to feel more confident and ensure that you don’t forget anything important.

  • Be clear and concise: Get your message across in a clear and concise way. Make sure you use simple language and avoid jargon or technical terms that your audience may not be familiar with.

  • Engage your audience: A good product presentation is a two-way conversation. Encourage your audience to ask questions and provide feedback. This will keep them engaged and show that you value their input.

  • Show passion: If you’re passionate about your product, it will be contagious. Showing enthusiasm and conviction in your presentation will build trust and credibility with your audience.

  • Focus on benefits: Instead of focusing on features, focus on the benefits that your product can provide. Highlight how your product can solve your audience’s problems and make their lives easier.

  • Be authentic: Don’t try to be someone you’re not. Be yourself and let your personality shine through. This will help to build a connection with your audience and make your presentation more memorable.
