4 Reasons why your PowerPoint presentations suck and what you can do to fix it

The Powtoon below was created by Matthew Kostanecki, it was his first attempt at making​ one. ​ Here is what Matthew has to say about PowToon:

“It honestly wasn’t as hard as I assumed. I feel like there’s a significant initial​ learning​ curve but once you figure out the first slide, it’s smooth sailing from there. ​ Luckily enough, in this case, I figured it out fairly easily. ​ There were a few minor quirks along the way, but I’m sure once it’s off Beta, those should be ironed out :). ​ Working with Powtoon was actually minimal, I would say about 2-3 hours in total using the software. Doing the​ research and coming up with a script for the voice over artist took​ longer than that.​
To make a great presentation, you want to tell a story and hopefully teach people something new. I think PowToon will help with my speaking experience and​ definitely​ make my marketing presentations more memorable. Everyone expects boring old​ power point​ slides, this is a​ sure-fire​ way to wake them up and make them take notice!


I think people are afraid of video since they assume it’s too hard, expensive or time consuming. PowToon really does bring down those barriers. For a marketer, the ability to create great looking videos on demand is a skill they NEED to have. “
