Unit 2: Product Presentation

  1. Presenting New Products
  2. Recommending Products
  3. Comparing Products
Outline of the Product Presentation

  1) Introduction - This is normally just a title slide where the speaker introduces themselves, and the point of the product presentation. This is where you want to hook your audience and tell them what is in it for them. If you are not going to be giving the presentation you may want to have a note slide with the point on it. (1-2 slides)

  2) Agenda - An agenda is optional, but provides you with an your opportunity to tell your audience what you are going to cover in your presentation. It avoids people asking questions early in the presentation about material you will be covering later.(1 slide)

  3) Company Information - This is a way to establish credibility and to make the audience feel comfortable with your company. Ways to do this include customer lists, high-profile executives or advisors, information on funding (if a private company), awards and major milestones. Don't spend too much time on this, you don't want your audience falling asleep.

  4) Positioning - Successful products have a unique technology or positioning that sets them apart from other products on the market. You want to introduce this aspect of your product up front to let your audience know how your product is different and why they should listen to the rest of your presentation. Use this as an attention getter. This should be done in terms of the problem that they have and that you are solving with your product. Be sure to present this in terms of your audience and their pain. (1-5 slides)

  5) Product description - Clearly describe your product in terms that your audience will understand. It may be helpful to have a chart with the product components. You want to give the audience a frame of reference for the features and benefits that they are going to see. You also want them to know how your product fits into their existing environment. Show how the product interfaces (匹配) with other products or systems they may be using. (1-2 slides)

  6) Clearly articulated benefits as they relate to your target audience - You can use a features and benefits list or just walk through the features and benefits. Whatever you do, do not forget the benefits! They may be obvious to you because you live and breath the product, but your audience should have them clearly called out and they must relate to their needs. (1-5 slides)

  7) Examples/successes - At this point in the presentation your audience should be familiar with your product and why it is different and better. In order to drive this point home use examples of how your product is being used and how customers have benefited from the product. (1-3 slides)

  8) Closing argument - This is your opportunity for a ‘call to action’. You want summarize your product presentation, re’iterate (重申)the point of the presentation, and ask your audience to do something, if that is the point of your presentation.
Other Important Points (

? ? ? ? Use Examples Simplify Easy-to-Read Fonts (字体) 字体) Style
Use a presentation template(模板) and then use the colors from the (模板) template (or ones in the same family) for all charts and graphs. Use alignment (直线)carefully. If your template is left or right aligned, 直线) use that alignment throughout the presentation. Remove harsh lines. Powerpoint always puts a dark line around any box that you draw. These lines make the drawings look crude and harsh. By removing the lines your eye focuses more on the content of the box rather than the boxes themselves. Additional lines and arrows don't have to be dark either, try making them thicker and lighter so that they don't draw attention away from the point of the slide.
