We all know what “yourself” means, the dictionary defines “invest” as to “devote (one’s time, effort, or energy) to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result.” and “to spend (time, effort, etc.) with the expectation of some satisfaction”.
DIY presentations ultimately result in costing leads and damaging reputations.
Your presentation is a direct reflection on your ability to engage and communicate with your prospective clients.
Whilst you may be good at creating a powerpoint presentation, a skill you may have once used at school, or you are prepared to tough it out and spend countless hours learning how to create one, but ask yourself, can you create a powerful presentation that delivers your message and enhances your brands reputation?
We all try and do things that we like to do or that make us feel like we are being productive (remember our discussion on opportunity cost?).
You may want to think of doing things in terms of “is creating your own presentation a good use of your time and resources?” By working with a professional presentation company such as PowerfulPoints, you are in fact investing in yourself and the brand you represent.
The world has changed along with our expectations, don’t insult your audience with a poorly created presentation.
Your audience has given up their time to come and hear you present, don’t insult them. As an audience member we have expectations in regards to a return on our time spent attending your presentation.
You must be committed to the task at hand and be prepared to make the necessary commitment in regards to your preparation and financial returns that come from this will reap rewards.
The bottom line is that the more you invest in yourself, the more marketable you are and the more likely to will be to attract the type of clients who will support your business.
