As a dedicated presentation design agency, our work revolves around creating sales decks day in and day out. A common inquiry from our clients at the project's beginning is, 'What should our sales deck include?'
The answer to this question? 'It depends!'
It depends on what stage your sales deck comes into the prospect's hands. Is it before you meet with the prospect, during the meeting, or after the meeting.
Before, during, or after the meeting: What should a sales deck include?
When you're sharing a sales deck before or during a meeting, go beyond just sharing information – make it compelling! At this early stage, prospects might not know much about your company, so weave a narrative around the evolving industry landscape, address pain points, and smoothly introduce your solution. It's all about sparking their interest.
But, after the meeting, shift gears. Dive into detailed information about your company, showcase your services, and highlight what sets you apart. It's your chance to provide a deeper understanding of who you are and what you bring to the table.
