Making Money Online With PowerPoint – 2 of 4

Create PowerPoint Slides

Video presentations continue to grow in popularity. From marketing businesses to keeping in touch with family and friends, everyone is using it. One of the easiest ways to create presentations is with PowerPoint. This demonstration was made with PowerPoint 2010.

You will need:

PowerPoint Installed

An outline of your presentation text


Step 1: Start a New Presentation

When you open PowerPoint, you will be presented with a new title slide. If you are not, you’ll need to click File then click New. This will bring up the first slide in your presentation.

Step 2: Select a Theme

Click the design tab and you should see a screen similar to the one below. This tab allows you to select a theme from several design choices. Using the slider or bottom arrow, you can scroll through the available themes. As you mouse over each theme, you will get a preview on the existing title page. Select the theme based on layout as you can change the colors.

Here’s a shot of some of the themes available.


Step 3: Edit Theme

Once you’ve chosen your theme, it’s time to edit it. You can change the color, fonts and effects by using the drop down arrows as indicated in the design tab image above. Here, we’ve chosen to look at the color options. As you can see, there are many color choices available so try several until you find one that works for your business or personality.

Now that you have your theme and colors, you can change the background if you’d like. On the design tab, using the drop down arrow next to Background Styles, mouse over your options to get a preview of what features each option will give you.

Each theme will come with its own set of background options from plain white, to fades to subtle designs. You can also change the fonts and effects from the design tab as well. Those options are located directly below the colors option.

Step 4: Edit Title Page

Now that you have the presentation design you want, it’s time to start editing the slides and adding more. As indicated in the slide image below, you simply need to click the area in the slide to add text.

Switching back to the home tab will give you editing features as in Word where you can add underlines, bolding, change the font, add bullets and more.

Each slide will have a place at the bottom to add notes.

Step 5: Add Slide # 2

To add another slide, you simply navigate to the home tab and click new slide to bring up a blank slide.

Click the drop down arrow below the New Slide icon to bring up other types of slide options.

As you did with the first slide, simply click the slide and enter your text. Repeat step 5 for each additional slide you wish to add. To move between slides, simply click the slide in the sidebar that you wish to view and/or edit.
