How to Prepare a Winning Pitch Deck

  1. Clear and Simple The language used most be one which is not too big to understand in order for the message to be passed across. There’s actually no extra points for using big grammar when the main goal is not achieved. Do not try to make an impression by using big grammar but rather win them over by what you carry and what you have to offer.
  2. Persuasive and easy to understand: each slides more not be too wordy to convey its message but rather its words alone more be explicit and carry meaning.
  3. Depicts Conviction: the idea behind a pitch deck is to get the investors accept that your ideas are top notch and also to believe that no one does it better than you.
  4. Give some solid numbers, e.g. user engagement, user base growth metrics, etc.
  5. Tell a story to engage: the best way to captivate your audience is to begin with a captivating story that is relatable to the message, point you’re passing across, this would enable them to follow suite throughout the whole presentation and not get lost midway.
  6. Each slide should be on a topic.
  1. Find a good designer who can help you organize your ideas and create graphics that will make your presentation bang!
  2. Start collating and sourcing for the data you need to prove you have a profitable business idea.
  3. Bring your vision and business down to one or two short sentences.
