04 Dec 3 Apps To Create And Deliver Knockout Presentations With Your iPad
When you’re pitching an idea to a client, you have one opportunity to stand out from the competition and win their business. Having a great idea and/or solution is vital but it always comes down to the sales pitch.
To create and deliver that winning sales pitch, check out these apps for your iPhone and iPad.
Creating the Sales Pitch
Haiku Deck lets you easily create visually appealing presentations on your iPad or iPhone.
To help you build visually beautiful presentations, the app offers you access to millions of high quality photos or you can add in your own photos via your iPad.
Once you’ve finished creating your presentation, they are saved as “decks” on the Haiku Deck server. You can then access all your presentations on the iPad, iPhone , Web Browser or internet connected projector, alternately export it to a PDF and print handouts for your clients.
And when you’re presenting, you can use your iPhone or iPad as a remote to control the presentation via WiFi.
The Haiku Deck App is available from the iTunes store and requires iOS 7.0 or later.
Price: Free (Note: Certain themes and photos require an in-app purchase.)
Editing the Sales Pitch
Ginger Keyboard + Page
You may have created a great looking presentation, but one spelling error can quickly degrade the quality.
Ginger Keyboard + Page is a comprehensive writing tool that will review any text for grammar, spelling and punctuation errors. The app takes it further, also suggesting synonyms and alternative advanced wording in context with that you’re writing.
You can also translate your English text to over 40 different languages if your audience speaks another language.
The Ginger Keyboard + Page App is available from the iTunes store and requires iOS 7 or later.
Presenting the Sales Pitch
Air Sketch: Interactive Whiteboard and Wireless Presentations
If you want an easy and convenient way to display your presentation then Air Sketch is the app for you. You can present the content of the app via a specific URL on a compatible browser and make annotations on your images or slides which are reflected in real time.
When you are using Air Sketch on your iPad you will require a WiFi connection for the app to successfully work.
The Air Sketch: Interactive Whiteboard and Wireless Presentations App is available from the iTunes store and requires iOS 7.0 or later.
Kaon Interactive 3D Product App
Want to take your product presentations to the next level?
Kaon 3D Product App offers an interactive way to showcase your products to your clients. The app provides a 3D, 360 degree view of your product, giving your clients a better look at what they are (potentially) purchasing.
However, just seeing the product is usually not enough. The app also allows clients to explore product options, functions and features in addition to seeing how it would run in workflows and processes via animations. Clients can do all of this using an iPad, iPhone or any other digital platform, both online and offline.
Having a platform that delivers realistic interactive 3D demonstrations eliminates the use of PowerPoint presentations or brochures which only provides 2D images and written text.
To put together the 3D view of your product, however, you will require a professional photographer to build a 3D model of the product.
The Kaon Interactive 3D Product App is available from the iTunes store and requires iOS 6.1 or later.
