Remember back when the ability to create a slide show
presentation using PowerPoint was cutting-edge technology?
PowerPoint presentations changed the way that companies and
seminars did business. It was easy to take along your
presentation material; just grab your laptop and go. Sound and
visual effects, fancy screen designs, bulleted features ?
presentations had it all.
Everybody had a PowerPoint presentation. Those who didn't use
this type of presentation material really felt the pressure to
conform. Plus it wasn't difficult to see how bored their
audiences were becoming with nothing visual to hold their
When the technology bubble burst a few years back, and the
after-effects of 911 dealt a serious blow to the economy,
business travel budgets became practically non-existent. At the
same time, globalization was becoming the new buzzword. To stay
in business and be better able to conduct business globally, more
and more companies developed websites. Other advances in
technology helped reign in and at the same time expand the global
Today, slide show presentations still are valuable sales and
marketing tools used by all types of large, small and even
home-based businesses. They're also a favorite of anyone giving a
In an effort to keep up with today's fast pace of business and
its global nature, many marketing departments are realizing the
benefits of emailing their slide show presentations. That's
right. Presentations that used to be viewed primarily in a room
full of marginally-interested decision makers can now be directly
posted on a website or delivered via email instantaneously to the
right person. Viewing PowerPoint presentations sent via email is
as easy as reading your email. But it's even better because you
get sound and animation, too.
Using a powerful conversion program called PowerConverter, you
can quickly convert your PowerPoint 2000, XP or 2003 slides to
browser-friendly Flash. Simply install this software, push a
button and save the presentation as a .SWF or a .EXE file.
Select .SWF file formats for fast streaming viewing on a web
site. Save as a .EXE and the conversion will include the Flash
viewer as well as the presentation. That way, those receiving
the file won't need any additional software to view it. This
format is great for distributing smaller, self-running CD-ROMs.
No longer do you have to wait forever to get your marketing
materials into the hands of the right person. No longer do you
have to worry that your marketing materials will be out of date
before those you are sending it to even have a chance to look at
it. Files can be instantly updated, saving businesses time and
money ? the two most important things that a business needs to
Plus, there's no need to worry that the picture clarity will
diminish after the conversion process, even as the slide show
presentation is compressed by as much as 97%! You do have an
option to improve the picture quality should you need it. Just
note that this will increase the size of your file.
PowerConverter is available in three different versions, each
optimized for a different version of PowerPoint. There's the lite
version optimized for PowerPoint 97. PowerConverter 2000 is
optimized for PowerPoint 2000 and the XP version of
PowerConverter is optimized for PowerPoint 2002, XP and 2003.
Remember, for your business to survive, you've got to always stay
one step ahead of your competition. The folks over at
PresentationPro understand this. They had the foresight to
develop a product that could take PowerPoint 2000 presentation
materials to the next level. If you're not already taking
advantage of this impressive slide show conversion technology,
don't wait any longer.
