Pitch books, Bid books and Proposals
Pitch books, Bid books, and Proposals are documents that companies use to present their ideas, products, or services to potential customers or investors. PowerPoint is a great tool for creating these documents (many people do not know that this can be done in PowerPoint as well) because it is easy to use and offers a wide range of graphical possibilities. Especially if this is based on a good template. Below are told the steps that are followed to create a Pitch book, Bid book or Proposal with PowerPoint:
Plan the structure and content of the document. This includes determining the main topics and information you want to include, such as a summary of the company, product or service, market, competitors, financial data and other important statistics.
Gather all the necessary information and materials you want to include in the document, such as images, graphs, tables, diagrams, and so on.
Open PowerPoint and choose a template (template) already created for the document you are going to create. This will help you create a professional-looking document.
Start by formatting the pages for your document. For example, start with a title, followed by a summary page (slide), a page about your product or service, a market research page, a competition page, a financial overview page and other relevant pages.
Add text to each page (slide) and use relevant images, charts or tables to support your message and make it more visually appealing.
Keep text short and concise, using bullet points and just a few words. Avoid too much text on one slide (page) and make sure the content is easy to read.
Ensure consistency in the design of your document. For example, use the same fonts, colors, images and layout for each slide. But this follows naturally by using a well-designed template. ROOPS can provide this for you, as well as the basic pages for the document to be created.
Also include a table of contents and a closing page. A table of contents provides an overview of the pages and makes it easier to navigate through the document. The closing page can include a summary of your message, your contact information and a call to action.
Make sure your document is professional and polished. Check for errors in spelling and grammar and make sure all images and graphics are displayed correctly.
Export the document to a PDF format and share it with your audience.
This way, they can easily open and view it without any layout changes. By following these steps, you can easily create a professional document with PowerPoint by yourself and with ROOPS’ help. Newsletters, flyers, posters, banners, social media posts, and so on can also be created based on a, template created in PowerPoint. Very handy to have, especially for repetitive work. So that you can switch quickly without the intervention of third parties. Within the corporate identity.
PostNL annually organizes an ‘Executive Business Course’ for the highest management layers. PostNL writes the content for the program brochure, and Roops takes care of the layout and structure. By making this brochure in a PowerPoint template, the process is super fast and we learn a lot from Roops about the layout options. Thanks to Roops, we now have a beautiful template that we can use every year.
