TEST
Are you good at making presentations?
There are a few common mistakes that can worsen even the most impressive presentation. Let's check if you make them!

P.S. You will find tips on how to avoid these mistakes below the answers.

START
Do you use presentation templates?
Proper usage of templates automates part of manual work and helps you to make preparations faster. Try using templates to reduce the workload.
People often use different templates. As a result, fonts and colors change on every slide. Don't do this.
Great, you are using program functions to your advantage!
Tip - make sure all the headings and text alignment are the same throughout your presentation.

What images do you use?
You approach your presentation responsibly, that's admirable. Professional images used in the right place can enhance the design level of your presentation a lot.
Images from the first page on Google are likely to be protected by copyright and can't be used in presentations. Don't forget to set up a filter for usage rights in Google search. Use platforms with freely usable images such as unsplash.com or pixabay.com.
Visuals are extremely important. They help to keep the audience interested and demonstrate complicated definitions. Alternatively, you can add icons to highlight important parts of the text.

What colors do you use in your presentation?
If you're not a designer, use dedicated websites to identify your color palette. You can find the list of sites in our article on resources for presentation.
You should put meaning in your color usage. We are glad you understand this!
A large number of colors distract the audience. Color should be meaningful. Try to use one accent color.

What about the fonts?
Decorative fonts make text harder to read. We don't recommend using them in presentations. They can only be used to grab attention, for example, in headlines
Good job! Don't forget that every new font needs to have defined functions in your design.
The effort you put towards working on text defines the design proficiency of your presentation. Standard font suggests that the presenter didn't care about the final result.

Use high-contrast fonts or different fonts of the same typeface, adjust interline space, and align text to the left. Check out more about fonts in our article.

How do you use animation in your presentation?
Inappropriate animation usage is drawing attention away from the content of the presentation. Use animation to highlight something or impress with it. Animation can be used to reveal information as the story progresses.
You underestimate its capabilities. For example, the Morph tool can add a "wow-effect" to your slides. It is appropriate to use animation to highlight the main thing or impress.
Awesome! You know how to keep your audience's attention and not oversaturate your presentation with unnecessary content.

How do you finish your presentation?
Oh no! Even a great presentation can be ruined with such a slide. Read more about bad final slides in our article. We recommend sharing your contact details or adding Call-to-Action on the last slide, if appropriate.
You are doing everything right :) You can also add Call-to-Action if you want people to complete a certain action: buy, call or read.
Presentation is a great way to establish new connections with people, use this chance. You can share your contact details so people can contact you later, add a link to the company's website so people know more about you or specify Call-to-Action to get from people what you need.

Do you practice delivering presentations on time?
Great! It's crucial to comply with the defined time limits during the performance.
It's disrespectful to the audience and your event host to delay the presentation. Moreover, without rehearsals, you may not have enough time to bring your thoughts to the end, and you will have to rush. Practicing beforehand is the best way to be confident in your performance.
This method gives low accuracy since it doesn't show the real-time of the presentation. It's preferable to run the presentation and see how long it takes.
