When you think of how to deliver a great presentation, you usually think of delivering it through a projector. But what about one-on-one sales meetings? Obviously projectors are out of the picture for anything less than a room of people.
Most salespeople stick with what they’ve always done: paper slides, sketches or just talking the prospect through a presentation without any visual aids.
But presentations have evolved. And the iPad has made personal presentations possible. When used intelligently, this mobile device is a game changer for any presentation or audience.
Here are 8 ways to take advantage of the iPad’s strengths when delivering your next presentation.
1. Show. Tell. Touch.
Touching something has the power to decrease anxiety and increase positive thought patterns. It is also a long forgotten tool in our modern era when attempting to connect someone to an idea.
No longer does our idea have to live on a screen 5-12 feet away from our audience. The iPad enables us to not just show and tell, but to show, tell, and let them touch. Play to the iPad’s strengths by passing it around a board room or, in a personal pitch, letting a prospect hold it while you flip and point.
