If you’ve got an upcoming PowerPoint presentation, then you’re starting to scramble to get your ideas together.

Writing a presentation can be a stressful process. How are you supposed to get everything you know about X, Y, Z topic into the small, to-the-point, and articulate package that is a PowerPoint presentation.

You know your topic and audience. You know that your presentation must grab attention, plus follow a logical order, and flow with clarity. It’ll take some work, but the first step in figuring out how to make a business presentation for PPT is to simply sit down and begin to write.

Here, we make it simple. We go over how to write a PowerPoint presentation—quickly and painlessly. We’ll start with how to write a compelling introduction with a fail-proof “hook,” how to create an outline, and how to finish strong. Then we’ll wrap it up with some helpful design tips—so the written and visual components of your presentation come together.

Before you jump into this tutorial, look through our professional templates on Envato Elements and on GraphicRiver. We’ll explain how to plan and how to write a PowerPoint presentation. The PowerPoint presentation format also needs to be on target with your goals.
