Marc Sparks believes a good presentation is important to selling a business idea. This applies to a venture capitalist or any business person. The presentation needs thought and planning for succed.
He suggests making a point with every visual that you use in a presentation. Don’t use graphics or photos that waste time and make no point. Use data to show a need or tell a real story. Back up your idea with data and numbers that show the importance of product or service you are selling. Keep the presentation simple but make it effective.
According to Disqus comments, Marc Sparks says don’t design a complicated presentation when selling an idea. Complicated presentations lose the interest of the investors. In the presentation, have your entire team present and be proud of your product or service. Demonstrate your passion, and professionalism during the presentation.
