Eager to share your new business idea to investors, potential clients or partners? Having your business presentation or pitch ready is a must but often there is not enough time to explain all details.
So what do you do?
You can prepare awesome slides. This is a great approach when you do formal presentations but in an era where attention spams are small and networking is huge, a PowerPoint business presentation might not be the best option. Especially, when drinks at the networking cocktail party are involved.
Other situations are casual meetings with people that you might find will benefit from your products or opportunity. Interrupting a coffee to charge to the car to get the computer, flyers and charts might not be the best approach and it will probably scare your prospects away.
So what can you do?
The first thing to do is to know your what you are offering. You don't need to know every single detail about the product or company. Don't let that stop you! But you should know enough.
Business Presentation Tools for your own Idea
If it is your own idea you can use a couple of great tools to help you figure out your business model and the value to your clients.
My two favorites are the business model canvas and the value proposition canvas.
Business Presentation Tools for A Network Marketer (or for any business presentation in a social event)
A napkin business presentation…..
This is simply a great tool to have. Basically all you need is a pen. The rest – napkin – will be provided to you by the network or social event you are attending.
The great thing of this tool is that is simple, available and it blends in the moment. There is no evidence of being forced. No need to carry flyers, posters, charts, tablets, computers ….. All you need is a pen.
I did mention that this is a simple tool to have but it does require some practice. Not because you should be concerned of smearing ink everywhere or ripping the napkin (although it can happen), but because you need to know your business well enough to put it simply into a small piece of paper in a visual way.
Putting the business presentation into the business presentation into the napkin means to keep it short under 5 minutes, and to do some drawing.
Here is an example of my napkin business presentation:
As you can see, I keep it simple and visual. It is short and although there are 5 different components and 3 major areas of business, it is clear which benefits there are to each party.
The two tools I mentioned earlier, the business model canvas and the value proposition canvas, are very useful in the preparation stage of your napkin presentation.
