How to Craft a Message That Resonates With Your Audience
In this section, I’ll help you get the basics down.
So whether you’re a business professional, a startup founder or a high school student, you’ll learn my favorite tips for preparing a presentation that’s laser-focused on your audience.
👉 Practical strategies to uncover who your audience is and what they want
👉 Formulas for crafting the perfect message for your presentation
👉 And much more…
Research shows that people who understand their audience are more successful in achieving their communication goals.
To know more about them, answer these questions:
Here are some practical online resources you can use to learn more about your audience:
Assess their knowledge of the topic
The content of a good presentation has to match with the expectations of your audience. So your goal is to find out what they already know (or don’t) about the topic you’re about to cover.
Now, there are 3 major types of audiences.
Your goal is to identify which category yours falls into:
|The “lay” audience||No special or expert knowledge. They usually need background information.|
|The “managerial” audience||Any background information, facts, or statistics needed to make a decision should be highlighted.|
|The “expert” audience||The most demanding audience in terms of knowledge, presentation, and graphics or visuals.|
Understand their attitude toward the topic
Knowing your audience members’ attitudes about a topic will help you tailor the content of your presentation in alignement with their expectations.
To uncover what they think, answer these questions:
According to the California State University Employee Development Center, we usually of give presentations to either inform, persuade or educate.
Inform -> “ABC Marketing Department: Q4 Sales Projections”
Persuade -> “Super SEO Agency: How We Help You x3 Your Conversions”
Educate -> “10 Advanced Presentation Design Techniques From The Pros”
Identify in which category your presentation falls into.
Setting goals has been proven to increase both motivation and success rate.
And because studies have also shown that “individuals with clear, written goals are significantly more likely to succeed than those without clearly defined goals“, here’s what you are going to do:
Take a big piece of paper and write down one crystal clear goal for your presentation. That’ll help you stay focused and remove anything that does not help towards that goal (more on that later in the post). Be as specific as possible:
I’m doing this presentation to….
Teach advanced growth hacking techniques to startup founders
Get my boss to agree with the social media strategy my team has put together
Build a relationship with that prospect (so two months from now he wants to purchase from us)
Your core message is the #1 thing you want your audience to remember.
So here’s the deal:
It’s very important because every piece of information you’ll be putting inside your slide deck will be angled toward supporting that one thing.
Now, use this simple formula to build it:
Show these NYC-based consultants how my company can help them get more leads.
Convince my boss to increase the marketing budget next year.
What are the top 3-5 big reasons that will motivate your audience members to do what you want?
The point here is to think about what you need to tell them to reach your presentation goal.
Do this exercise:
Every claim needs to be backed up with supportive points confirming it.
To find reliable resources (statistics, research papers or case studies), head over to Google and try these search strings:
Here’s an example where I’m looking for a McKinsey report related to corporate innovation:
Elevator pitch = summary of the purpose of your presentation in one sentence
Most people can’t do it (try asking your colleagues next time they’re working on a slide deck at the office…). But the thing is, making an elevator pitch is a great way to feel confident about your presentation and help your audience understand what it’s all about quickly and precisely.
To do that, make sure your elevator pitch answers this question:
Why should I listen to you?

Presentation Preparation & Structure Strategies
Now that you know exactly who your audience (and what they want), have a clear goal and message for your presentation, it’s time to move on to the next chapter:
Structuring your presentation.p
👉 My 5-step process for building presentations from scratch (and how to use it for maximum efficiency)
👉 Simple frameworks you can use to structure crystal-clear presentations (if you’re in sales, you’ll love the persuasive story pattern…)
👉 Three types of slides that’ll help you improve the clarity (and effectiveness) of your presentations
First, list the different steps you usually follow to make a presentation (or check out mine below).
Then, write down the estimated time you think you’ll need for each step.
That will help you keep track of the amount of time spent on each of them and be more efficient. Here’s the 5-step process I personally use:
Here’s how most presentations are structured:
- Opening: Tell them what you are going to tell them. This section highlights what your presentation is all about.
- Body: Tell them. This section distills your message, sub-messages and supportive points.
- Closing: Tell them what you told them. Wrap up the key insights of your presentation, and include a specific call-to-action if that’s relevant.
Now, let’s imagine you’re making a sales deck pitching a SaaS project management product. Here’s how your structure could look like:
- Opening: the problem behind getting all teams on the same page today
- Body: 3-5 arguments supporting how your company’s product can solve this problem
- Closing: agree to send the prospect a proposal by next week
When structuring the content of your presentation you want to do one thing:
Put yourself in the shoes of the audience and ask “so what?” (AKA is this relevant and crucial to support my message… or not).
Uh, lemme state that XYZ company was funded in August 1998 by Bob Smith who was…
Duh, “so what”? Nobody cares. Get rid of it.
One slide = one idea / message / point.
The content of each slide must be tied to your core and sub-messages, otherwise don’t bother.
The purpose of this slide is to [ show that our sales grew by 16% this year ]
The purpose of this slide is to [ demonstrate that our app features are the best in the market ]
The persuasive story pattern is a storytelling technique that will help you structure a presentation that’s easy to digest and remember.
And because it’s based on a problem/solution approach, this technique works especially well for pitch decks and sales presentations.
So here’s how it works:
Here is an example:
Problem: current situation faced by your audience. Do you suffer from/Sick of being…
Dream: how it can change. It doesn’t have to be that way/there’s a solution…
Solution: your solution. Imagine if you could…how your life would be if you could…
The three-act structure is an old storytelling principle that can be found in plays, poetry and movies.
Set up: climate change / tiny farmers providing food to restaurants
Confrontation: how climate change affects the growing season
Resolution: policies that should be in place + how people in other areas are mitigating the effects of climate change on local resources
Embedding transition slides works especially well for long-form presentations:
Transition slides allow you to clearly separate the different sections of your deck, while helping your audience identify where they are in your presentation.
- The audience knows they’re just about to start the first section (“China at Glance”)
- The audience knows Edith’s presentation has 3 sections
- People won’t be surprised by the next slide, as it will follow naturally
Once again, this is really effective for long-form presentations.
Especially when presenting to senior executives, as they will often “want to go deeper into certain points that will aid in their decision making. If they do, quickly pull up the slides that speak to those points”.
Here’s an example of a summary slide:
Close your presentation with a clear Call-To-Action (which is what you want your audience to do when the presentation is over).
Here are three examples of CTAs:
- Q&A (if you’re presenting a webinar or teaching a class to students for example)
- Contact Us Today at 000-000-0000 (if you’re sending a sales deck to prospects by email for instance)
- Click Here to Learn More About [Topic/Product] (if you’re driving traffic to your website to capture leads)
Let’s take a look at an example:
Growth Tribe, a digital training company, ends up their slide deck with a very specific CTA (via Source). Plus, because they’re using UTM tags, it makes it super easy to track traffic coming to their landing page and, by extension, measure the effectiveness of their CTA.
Presentation Content Tips | How to Write Attention-Grabbing Copy
In this chapter, you will learn essential copywriting principles so you can use your words to get information into someone’s brain (so they want to do what you want them to do).
You will learn simple tips and techniques to write in a natural, engaging way, and get your presentation message across more effectively. Here are some of the things we will cover:
👉 Smart strategies like the “brain dump” technique or the “Amazon hack” to come up with powerful headline ideas for your slides
👉 Timeless principles to guarantee that what you write is clear and to-the-point
👉 And more!
Here’s a fact:
Adding a “succinct sentence headline identifying the main assertion (in your slide) leads to statistically significant increases in audience retention” (source).
Headlines are catchy phrases that are designed to summarize the main point of your slide. For instance:
Let’s take a look at a concrete example.
The point of the “Brain Dump” technique is to write down a couple of subject lines and start filling them in. For instance, your slide is about the weight-loss problem.
Let’s start writing:
Subject 1: How to lose weight (super sucky)
Subject 2: How to lose weight effectively (meh)
Subject 3: 5 best-ever weight-loss secrets from thin people (good)
Subject 4: 3 things experts won’t tell you about weight-loss (catchy)
Select the most attention-grabbing headline when you’re done. The one that make you feel like:
“Uhhh I want to learn more about that”
“This headline condenses exactly what I’m going to cover next”
In case of doubt, get feedback from friends or colleagues.
Let’s say I want to figure out some good headlines for presentation design services I have.
Throw in the term “presentations” into Amazon and see what comes up:
Example of headlines I can come up with:
The little-known secrets behind TED-worthy presentations.
I’ll help you design unforgettable presentations that influence, persuade and leave a memorable impression.
Use these starters:
Our powerful new seminar teaches sales reps the power of persuasion to drive people into a buying frenzy
Now you can stop worrying about your website traffic for good
Announcing the hottest new lobster roll of Paris
The concept of lenses helps you to write headlines that appeal to a specific audience. Lenses work especially well for sales presentations. There are three types of “lenses” you can instantly apply to your headlines:
- “Competitive” lens: “Dominate the search results, and leave Page 2 of Google for your competitors”.
- “Benefit Driven” lens: “80% faster than any other internet provider”.
- “Inspirational” lens: “What if you could learn the exact system to rank a website that generates traffic, sales & Customers 24/7?”
Which one sounds more appealing to you:
“A program to increase your sales”.
“A step-by-step, take-you-by-the-hand 4-weeks program that helps you double your sales in 60 days”.
That’s what I thought too.
Here, the power words are “step-by-step” and “take-you-by-the-hand”. Their target is to make the reader feel safe and confident.
If you want to your audience to feel something, start with defining which emotions you want them to feel (anger, curiosity, relief, happiness?). Then use proven power words that are tied to these emotions and integrate them in your presentation content.
If you’re looking to dig deeper on the topic, head over to that article where I detail the whole process.
“Nobody cares about you, people care about what you can do for them.”
Here’s how the me-to syndrome looks like in real life:
Can you spot what’s wrong with this spam email?
Well, I’ll tell you:
The me-too syndrome AKA the number of time it’s about THEM vs. the number of time it’s about ME.
Here’s the breakdown:
- THEM (AKA “I”; “us”, “our”): 15
- ME (AKA “you”): 11
- Me-too score: 58% (15/26)
To avoid the me-too syndrome, especially in sales presentations, make sure me-too score is under 50%, but more importantly… don’t talk about you, talk about what you can do for THEM.
Unless you’re making a super technical presentation geared toward a technical audience, use simple words people can understand.
See it this way:
People shouldn’t scratch their heads to try to figure out what you were trying to say. They shouldn’t have to think about it. It should be crystal clear.
Now, take a look at the different between a text that’s hard to understand, and one that’s fairly easy:
Always. Be. Specific.
“How to improve your finance quickly and claim back your freedom”.
“How to cut your expenses by 26% in the next 30 days”.
Which do you think is more persuasive, examples or statistics?
Read the following two paragraphs and decide:
Wondering why the example whets your appetite for more instead of the statistics? It’s because emotions are the key to sales. If you’re making a sales presentation, make sure you always place your money on the example.
“Write for the ear, not the eye. Old adage.”
There’s nothing worse than getting junk content from another me-too company that rambles on and on about how amazing they are.
On the other hand, when you read something that’s written to you – like personally – you’ll devour every word. Because you’ll want to know what’s in it for YOU.
Don’t do this.
Instead, express only one though in a sentence.
Use your next sentence to say the next thing.
79% of people scan read, rather than read every single word. Source
It’s a problem.
This is important.
Anyone should be able to understand what the slide is going to be about. Including your grandma.
Here’s an example:
Ok, maybe your grandma doesn’t know what Linkedin is 🤓.
But she will understand that the presentation is about something that grew exponentially. The point here is that your cover slide’s content shall wrap up what your presentation is going to be about in an obvious (and concise) way.
Read out loud every single sentence in your deck and ask yourself:
If the answer is no, then shorten the phrase or break it down in smaller, easily understandable pieces.
Presentation Design Tips & Techniques to Craft Gorgeous Slides
In this chapter, you will learn practical (and creative) presentation design tips to finally craft gorgeous, engaging slides that get your point across.
Here are some of the things you are about to learn:
👉 Essential principles to start off the right foot (you’ll learn CRAP and “grid” systems so you never make these dumb design mistakes again…)
👉 How to design your slides for maximum clarity (Plus, I’ll share some cool data visualization tips so you can finally present charts in a sexy way!)
👉 Creative presentation design tips (like how to use shapes, text effects or emojis to craft beautiful slides, fast)
Unless you already have an official set of colors, you need to create your own consistent theme and stick to it.
Your selected colors should be:
Below, you’ll find a research-backed table that presents all color meaning sand associations.
Use it to find colors that work for you:
Here are several additional online resources to help you craft your winning color themes:
Fonts can basically be separated between two major families: serif and sans serif.
Here’s a simple, crash-course on font psychology that’ll help you pick the right ones for your slides:
- “Serif Fonts Are More Readable Via Print
- Sans-Serif Fonts Are More Readable Via Screens
- Serif Fonts Convey Elegance and Rationale
- Sans-Serif Fonts Convey Informality and Innovation”
What specific font should you actually use?
Now, here is a great font resource:
In her guide on creating great presentations, Nancy Duarte explains the principle of grid systems to design slides like a designer:
Here’s an example:
There are not a hundred but one principle of design that I want you to get under your belt.
The CRAP principle: Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, Proximity.
Contrast is all about making things stand out. It can be achieved using three major tactics: manipulation of space (near / far, empty / filled), color choices (dark vs. light / cool vs. warm) and text (typography style / bold vs. narrow).
Repetition, for instance making a headline and a sub-message the same color, makes scanning your deck much easier. Repetition helps you create a cohesive look to your presentation.
Alignment. Newspapers use this to great effect. Aligning a whole bunch of elements with one another makes them scan faster. Alignment makes things easier to read.
Proximity means that things are associated with one another. Let me explain that for you: the closer things are, the more they are associated The farther they are away from one another, the less they are associated.
Let’s quickly dive into the *A* of the CRAP principle…
First, make sure you’re using enough space between the different elements in your presentation slides.
Next, fix your slides to make sure the alignment isn’t off. For example, take a look at the difference between the left and the right slide below.While there’s no alignment on the left side slide, the right slide is clearly structured with different levels of alignment: between the headline and the body text, between the top of the body text and the top of the visual, and between the bottom of the body text and the bottom of the visual.
To align elements on your slide, just select the ones you want to align, and then do this with Keynote:
And this with PowerPoint:
You probably already know that modifying the font size is a great way to control the hierarchy within your slides.
But what you may not know is that changing color or font weight is another smart way to separate the important text from secondary one. Here, take a look at the example below:
Now, here is a simple rule you can use:
Standard slides are usually sized 10 inches (width) * 7.5 inches (height). Re-size yours 12*7.5 (for PowerPoint) or Widescreen 16.9 (for Keynote).
The idea here is to have more horizontal space, meaning more freedom to design your slides:
Here’s how to do it:
Here’s how to design beautiful cover slides fast:
Here’s an example:
On the left slide, there’s a great contrast between the background and text. However, the different elements of text are of the same size, making it difficult to scan it.
On the right slide, we’re using different font sizes to create a clear contrast between important and secondary information. The color of the text is based on the color we chose for the slide background:
Alternatively, you could use a visual representing the point you’re trying to make (instead of a plain background). Here’s an example:
Bottom line: Anyone looking at your cover slide should have a clear idea of what the presentation is about to cover.
For corporate decks and most business-world presentations, the content slides will very likely be broken down in 3 core parts: Headlines, sub-headline, body text.
(Hence the HSB Formula)
Now, let’s see what each part actually include (and take a look at a specific example after that)…
As you can see, the HSB formula is quite simple to remember.
Now, let’s take a look at an example:
Headline: Sales Breakdown by Region (Q4)
Subheadline: China accounts for 52% of total sales over the period, representing an increase of 35% YoY
Content: Sales chart details and explanation
Of course, this is just a framework. You can adapt it depending on your needs. For instance, you could avoid using a sub-headline, but include a visual or graph to illustrate the point you are trying to make.
This simple tip will help you highlight the core message of every single content slide. To apply it, make sure to follow these two design principles:
Here’s an example:
Slide deck made by Nadya Khoja
Illustrations such as icons and shapes can help you convey information more effectively.
Here are a two concrete examples:
Here are great icon resources:
Research shows that users usually scan, and read, the content areas of web pages in a F-Pattern layout:
Basically, our eyes are starting at the top-left corner, scan horizontally, then drop down to the next line and do the same until we reach the bottom.
This F-shaped reading pattern is usually in web design best practices, but since presentations are also digital assets that are often viewed on screens, you can also apply it to your slide designs.
Here’s an example:
It’s not secret that tables can be hard to read (especially when there’s a lot of information). So the question is:
How can you create better tables that are easier for your audience to read?
Here’s a simple, effective rule you can use:
The point here is to reverse-engineer web page designs you like, identify the common patterns, and create slide designs inspired from them.
Here’s how to do it:
Let’s take a look at the example below:
The left visual is a screenshot of a career page where the company basically highlights the peeks they offer.
The right visual is a slide that presents services a digital company offers to potential clients.
See, we have used…
The same lay-out (4 boxes)
Similar colors and shade effects (white, slightly blurry box borders)
The emojis to illustrate the content of the boxes
Speaking of emojis… 🤗😍👉
Integrating emojis in your slides is an effective (and creative) way to convey feelings while bringing freshness to your presentation designs.
For example, you can use them to introduce paragraphs in your body slides:
Or introduce yourself:
Create a folder on your desktop or inside your cellphone and title it “Swipe File” Anytime you see a beautiful design or great copy, just add it to your swipe file. Set up individual folders or labels (E.g. “Great Cover Slides”, “Headlines”, etc).
Pretty soon, you’ll have a repository of inspiration that you can tap into when you are working on your own presentations.
Here’s how my personal swipe files looks like:
Ready-to-use templates help you create great presentations fast (and at the fraction of what a designer would cost you).
Most templates include everything you need, from gorgeous, easy-to-edit slides and icons to charts and ready-made color themes. In this article, I am reviewing my favorite designer-made PowerPoint and Keynote bundles that’ll help you clearly and concisely present information.
Plus, many business templates include fully editable graphics you can use to illustrate your slides in a professional manner.
For instance, I’ve used the graphics of Massive X, one of my favorite templates, to illustrate the chapters of this presentation guide.
Public Speaking Tips & Techniques to Deliver Like a Boss
In this section, I will share practical public speaking tips and techniques to help you impact with your voice, words and posture. You will learn:
Strategies to build confidence in public situations (no matter how nervous you are)
4 powerful ways to start a presentation and connect with your audience easily
Advice on body postures to create a strong executive presence
Using tongue twisters helps you practice speaking clearly and enunciating properly. The idea is to say them slowly, and then progressively as fast as you can without making mistake.
Here’s an example from The King’s Speech movie:
Here are a few ones to help you warm up:
“Stories are remembered up to 22 times more than facts alone.” (source)
A story is a “connected set of events, with a beginning, a middle and an end”. According to Stanford professor Jennifer Aaker, stories are important for three reasons:
They shape how others see you… as they influence how others see you, whether they want to hire you or buy from you.
They’re tool of power… because people slow down and listen to what you’re saying.
Stories persuade… because they can be a tool to advocate for your idea, your cause, your company.
To craft an effective story for your speech, Jennifer Aaker advises you to incorporate these 4 characteristics:
Let’s take a look at a good story:
“Five years ago…. I was….”
“You can’t imagine what happened to me yesterday”
This is a great way to hook your audience right off the bat.
Here’s an example:
Another powerful way to start a presentation is to use statistics.
Here’s an example:
“I want to get started with two facts: it takes 7 seconds for people to decide if they like you, and it takes 30 seconds to decide whether they want to listen to you or not. So by now you already know if you like me or not, and you’re just about to decide if you want to listen to what I’ve got to say”.
To find reliable resources, head over to Google and try these search strings:
Use the GTS (give them something) formula to get your audience excited about what they’ll be able to do or know by the end of your speech.
Here are simple scripts you can use:
“Today, I’m going to show you how you can use conversion optimization to triple your sales in less than 6 months”.
“My name is Clemence, founder at PPTPOP. In just a moment, I am going to show you how to deliver solid presentations that get your message across, influence and get you more of what you want in front of any audience.”
A plan makes it super easy for your audience to follow through. The point is for them to SEE where you are at in your speech , at any time.
“Today I’m going to show you 4 steps to deliver amazing presentations”.
And you’re talking about step # 2.
They instantly know you’re at the middle of the speech.
According to Harvard Business School professor Amy J.C. Cuddy, high-power poses decrease cortisol (AKA “the stress hormone”) by about 25% and increase testosterone by about 19% for both men and women.
To do that, make sure to stretch out, open up and make yourself taller.
Eye contact is crucial to keep you and your audience engaged:
- Spend just a few seconds with each person you’re looking at
- For bigger lecture halls, make sure to use an “M” or a “W” pattern to spread eye contact throughout (source).
“Human beings are drawn to movement. If you move when you speak, you’ll get people’s attention”.
Move toward the audience before making a point. Move away when you want to signal a break or a change of subject.
Julian Treasure, a sound and communication expert recommends you to apply the following techniques:
If you want to add weight to your speech, lower your voice
Slow down your pace to emphasize on a point
Speak louder to emphasize a point
“Pausing is to speaking as punctuation is to writing.”
Look, pauses are super important because they reduce the overall rate of speaking, give the audience time to reflect + absorb what you’re saying and tell your listeners you are moving from one thought to the next. Here are a few tips from the presentation coach Diane Windingland:
- Pause before and after important/difficult words or concepts
- Pause after changing visual or slide
Verbal presentation skills are crucial to your success and there are two things you should do to increase engagement with your audience:
First, use the words “you” and “I” so your audience relates with what you’re telling them.
You know that feeling when… [SITUATION]. I think it’s amazing, don’t you?
You’re stuck in [PROBLEM], you’re dealing with… [PAIN POINT]… You know what? I feel your pain.
Let me be completely blunt with you, if you’re serious about [BENEFIT THEY WANT]…
Using sensory phrases while you’re presenting will help you get your audience to feel something:
Since being kids, we’ve been conditioned to answer questions immediately. And that’s why we’re using filler words such as “uh”, “um”, “well”, “like”… that make us look super dumb and unprepared.
Mention what’s important or complex at the beginning of your speech if you can. Here’s why:
“For the first 5-10 minutes of a typical 50 minute lecture a student remembers a high proportion of the information presented, after which the proportion of information preserved rapidly declines. Students typically retain 70% from the first 10 minutes of lecture, and 20% from the last 10 minutes . Source.
Here’s a good strategy for improving your public speaking skills:
Show don’t tell (SDT).
The SDT principle has one purpose:
Enable your audience to experience the story through action, words, senses, and feelings. Incorporate as much as you can the use of specific, personal stories, vivid details that enable people to picture what you are saying.
Here’s an example from Zendesk customer service software:
Here’s the problem with reading presentations:
People KNOW you’re reading.
And as soon as they know it, the way they receive your talk will shift because your intimate connection with them will evaporates, and everything will feel a lot more formal (did I say boring?).
What gets evaluated get improved.
Record your speech either on your phone or with video (video is better, as you’ll be able to pay attention to your facial expression, gestures and body movements). Then listen to it or watch it, and make notes on how you could improve it, specifically:
“Mmmm… the intro was too long and boring” -> Let’s focus on mentioning only X, Y and Z before introducing the plan of my speech instead.
“Mmmm… I’m using way too much filler words” -> Let’s record myself once more, but this time speaking more slowly and using pauses.
Toastmaster clubs are groups across the world dedicated to helping members improve their public speaking skills. Groups get together during lunch or after work to take turns delivering short talks on a chosen topic.
The more you present, the better you’ll be, so consider joining a Toastmaster club to become a top-notch orator. They’re literally everywhere.
Improv comedy is also a great way to feel more confident in public.
Watch TED talks that cover a topic you’re interested in. Then, think:
