“This PPT is way too boring to go through.”

If such dreaded messages about your PPTs sound familiar, replacing them with engaging video content should be your top priority.

Our age-old PPTs have been effective tools for sharing information for a very long time. However, with reduced levels of attention spans and the need to skim through information quickly, going through PPTs has become more of a hassle. Videos, on the other hand, are quick, engaging, and easy to follow through.

We've already spoken at length about how you can convert a PPT into a video presentation. But how do you figure out if it makes sense for you to convert a particular PPT into a video presentation or not? Is it a one-plan-fits-all scenario or should you consider this on a case-by-case basis?

Without further ado, let’s figure out which types of PPTs you can convert into a video presentation.

1. Interactive Video Presentation for Learning and Development

Professional development on the job is key to nurturing high-performing and satisfied employees in any company. It helps employees stay up-to-date on the latest developments and advances enabling them to put their best foot forward at their jobs everyday.

In the high volume and high pressure environment of day-to-day tasks, it can be super cumbersome for them to go through another bulk of PPTs to upgrade their skills. It’s just plain boring to be honest. And unmotivated employees will never retain the information you’re trying to help them with.

An interactive training video can help tackle all of these problem areas. Some common learning and development video presentations include:

  • Introduction to cybersecurity
  • Company policies and procedures
  • Beginners courses on tools – from Google Sheets to Notion AI
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • How to get started in a new team
  • Onboarding material for new employees
  • How to give and receive feedback
  • Corporate training material

These are just a few ideas on why you would need a video presentation in learning and development instead of a standard PPT.

Why it works?

  • Self-paced learning experience
  • Swiftly go back and forth between key sections
  • Higher probability of retaining information
  • Warm tone for all learners
  • Easier to skim through basic sections
  • Simpler distribution of content amongst learners

2. Easier To Understand Video Presentation for Sales Enablement

The better your sales department works, the more revenue your company brings in. So training your reps to sell more and better using tools and content is quite simply a win-win situation for all.

For employees who are already spending a lot of time talking, negotiating with, and convincing prospective clients to make a purchase, unloading a set of hefty PPTs is a recipe for disaster. It can not only be tiresome but can overwhelm them into not going through a single PPT. And that’s where video presentations come into play.

Whether you’re trying to help them pick up a new sales skill or bring them up-to-date on a recent change in the sales protocols, a video presentation can be a treat to listen to.

Here are some common topics you can cover:

  • New sales model
  • Tips and tricks to sell better
  • The art of negotiation and influence
  • Updated pricing guidelines of the product
  • Customer onboarding

Why it works?

  • Easier to understand complicated topics
  • AI narrator makes it less intimidating
  • Swiftly go back and forth between key sections
  • Higher probability of retaining information

3. Smoother Internal Communications with a Video Presentation

How many times has it happened that you sent out an important internal communications email with 2-3 crucial PPTs only to hear back from employees a week later that they never received it? In the vastness of work-related emails or Slack messages that one gets, it’s very easy and common to lose such internal communications or skip them because they weren't a priority.

And even when people do open these communications, they can often be confused about what they mean or have follow-up questions because of poor information coverage or complicated sentences.

You or employees in your HR department can easily avoid such hurdles and make sure that your important messages catch people’s attention by converting them into video presentations.

Here are some internal communication topics that you didn’t think could be videos but they definitely can be:

  • Company culture and values
  • Company policies and protocols
  • Offsite announcements
  • Employee well-being initiatives
  • Any type of company updates

Why it works?

  • Eliminates the need for long, winding emails
  • Lesser confusion because of complicated information
  • Warm tone for all viewers
  • Higher probability of opening emails
  • Higher probability of viewing the entire video
