There are many formulas for estimating the number of slides for each presentation. The best formula is to start with one slide to cover each main point you want your audience to remember.

If you are presenting your content online, you might need more visual enhancements and slides to keep the viewer engaged. But you'll need fewer slides if you are presenting on stage and in person.

Working on your objective, storyboard, and script before designing your slides will help you determine which parts need more slides and visual enhancements.

If your content is based on motivational storytelling, you will need to rely on your ability to tell that story. You want your audience to focus on you, not your slides. If your content is more technical or conveys statistics and numbers, you will need to convey that more visually.

When you are new to public speaking, you might need more slides to help you relate your message. As you become more familiar with your subject matter, you might need fewer slides.

The best presentation software is the one that you and your teams can edit and update.

Many new online tools like Canva, Visme, Pitch.com, SlideBean, and others can help you create an initial short presentation or Pitch Deck. However, they are not powerful enough to handle long presentations, data control, and advanced template systemization for growing organizations.

Online tools will also present challenges when you have to make changes or share your files. Exporting features are limited to file formats like HTML, JPEG, PDF, or video, which very few people know how to edit.

RECOMMENDED SOFTWARE

PowerPoint remains the universal file format for presentation and the most commonly used for corporate, government, and educational organizations that choose to save files on their servers and/or use other Microsoft products like Excel and Word.

PowerPoint is the only presentation tool that allows you to import and edit SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) needed for customized infographics and diagrams.

  • 90% of our clients choose PowerPoint
  • 5% choose Keynote
  • 5% choose Google Slides
  • Some new clients started asking for Canva

CONTACT US, and we can help you choose the best presentation software that can work for your organization.

Pitch Deck and presentation projects start at $997 USD.

We can review your project files and provide you with a fixed-price, milestone, or hourly rate billing.

There are many website platforms on the market. They each have their advantages and disadvantages.

Ease of Use

Most new and small businesses need a simple website and marketing funnel. After testing many platforms like WIX, Squarespace, Kartra, ClickFunnels, Leadpages, and more, we recommend Simvoly.

Simvoly is the most cost-effective platform and supports traditional websites and advanced marketing funnels. It also has eCommerce, blogging, CRM, and calendar capabilities, making it the ideal platform for small businesses.

Wix recently updated their page builder capabilities and opened up a Wix Development Community, making it easier to find designers and developers and turn your website into an app. However, we do not offer any Wix-related services at this time. Please find an agency that specializes in the Wix platform.

ClickFunnels and Kartra were viable options and ideal for digital or information product sales that need an inbuilt affiliate management system. While we don't recommend them, we still support some of our existing clients with their websites.

Maximum Customization

For maximum customization and future growth, we recommend WordPress.

WordPress is an open-source platform that most web hosts support. It also has one of the most extensive plugins and third-party extensions on the market, making it one of the more accessible platforms to customize, regardless of your business objectives. No matter what marketing or email automation software you use, they are designed to work with WordPress.

eCommerce

We recommend the Shopify platform for advanced eCommerce with multiple currencies, inventory, shipping, and tax monitoring systems. However, we do not offer any Shopify-related services at this time. Please find an agency that specializes in the Shopify platform.

Your web hosting options will vary based on your business size, amount, and type of content on your site as well as your business geographic location.

We have tested many web hosting platforms and still prefer SiteGround and WPengine for managed WordPress hosting. With multiple servers worldwide, you can pick options close to your geographic location, making your site quick to load for your target audience.

WPengine is slightly more expensive but offers access to premium themes and guaranteed security. If your WordPress website is ever hacked, they will clean it for you. To provide this security, WPengine does not offer email hosting, meaning you must purchase email hosting somewhere else using providers like Microsoft or Gmail.

SiteGround offers you full access to the CPanel with complete control over your domain names, emails, backups, and many other features. With more features comes more responsibility. If you are not properly updating your website template and plugins and it gets hacked, you'll have to hire someone to clean it for you, which is what every other web host would expect you to do.

Both platforms provide auto WordPress updates, auto backups, website staging, and speed optimization.

We recommend you get WPengine for your web hosting if you have enterprise email solutions. But if you need to set up emails for your website and domains, it makes more sense to get SiteGround so you don't have to pay for two services.

The cost of each website and/or marketing funnel will be based on the amount of work required. Factors that can influence the cost include:

  • Copywriting: Do you have all the content ready or need help with content strategy and development?
  • Number of pages: How many pages will your website or marketing funnel be?
  • Custom Sliders & Video: Will your home page require any video or custom animated sliders?
  • Images & Custom Graphics: Do you have any existing logos, photos, infographics, charts, and tables, or do you need those custom-designed?
  • Functionality: What features and tools do you need to be incorporated? E.g., eCommerce, popups, galleries, blogs, portfolios, multiple languages, etc.

Note: Marketing funnels start at $3,000, and websites start at $5,000. All prices are in US Dollars
