Tired of using the same presentation software for your corporate meetings? Check out these other options (many of them free!) next time you want to add a little dazzle to your presentation!
- Prezi – For the “Wow” Presentation
Prezi is often regarded as the best presentation software available. It has, hands down, the most unique transitions, providing a visual cinematic appeal to your presentations. If you’re looking to create a non-linear presentation, or you just want to ‘wow’ your guests, Prezi is definitely for you.
It is free to use, but all presentations are stored on a public cloud, so if your information is confidential or if you’re in need of offline editing, look into their premium service.
- PowToon – For the Stories
PowToon succeeded in creating a whole new category of presentations. It’s an online tool that allows both PC and Mac users to easily create animated stories for presentations, complete with voiceovers. It’s super easy to use, and finished products can be uploaded to YouTube or other social media platforms, as well as embedded in your website.
The basic version of PowToon is free, though a paid subscription provides many more options.
- SlideRocket - For the Sales Manager
SlideRocket is a web-based presentation application that comes with many unique features, including collaboration, analytics, and the ability to embed live dynamic data (like Twitter feeds or stock prices.) It includes great graphics and lots of template options to choose from. This is definitely the option for sales presentations.
SlideRocket offers a limited free option, though you really need to purchase the premium version to get full use of its many features.
- Haiku Deck – For the Beautiful Presentation
Haiku Deck distinguishes itself from the pack with the 35 million images that come standard with this web-based tool. The easy-to-use software emphasizes imagery and style, focusing on graphics to convey ideas instead of dense text. If you’re looking for beauty over substance, this is your tool.
While the software is free, all presentations created using the free version are available to be copied and reused by the public. The Pro version is relatively cheap and offers monthly or yearly subscriptions.
