In order to optimize your presentations, it is possible to use on PowerPoint a technique that is now common on the web to pace reading and give a visual indication of the progress of presentations: we are talking about navigation system between the slides.

Web navigation systems

Web browsing is the process of navigating pages, applications, and websites on the Internet; and involves setting up Of a navigation system. The use of navigation systems is therefore common on the web and is particularly present on all websites.

In order to optimize the success of a website, in addition to high-quality content and an attractive design, an optimal navigation structure is crucial. Indeed, well-thought-out web navigation allows its visitors to navigate from page to page easily, in order to find the information they are looking for. Offering clear and fluid web browsing is therefore imperative and contributes to improving performance indicators such as bounce rate, average length of visits, website traffic... etc.

Our agency's website MR PREZ offers, for example, a navigation system that allows visitors to easily navigate the agency's projects and services through various categories and sub-categories.

The idea on a PowerPoint presentation is going to be to recreate the same thing, but adapted to slides and for a wide variety of cases. Our M PREZ interactive PowerPoint presentation also uses the design and the navigation system that was present on our old website, but in a simplified version.

The navigation system set up in our presentation allows you to move from one category to another with A highlight of the slide we are on (this thanks to a opacity and transparency system on the fonts) which gives the effect of setting the content apart from that which is put forward. This structure format is also found in the navigation menus of many websites.

A useful solution on PowerPoint

The navigation systems adapt very well to cut a slide and a reasoning, which makes it possible to give visual impact to a PowerPoint presentation.

For example, instead of presenting three points on a single slide, dividing the information by preferring three slides with only one point per slide makes it possible to improve the content of the slide and to give more visual impact to each message by individualizing them one after the other; and the fact of using a navigation system in this case makes it possible to make the information more impactful while maintaining homogeneity between the slides.

Indeed, division makes it possible to lighten the content per slide, and to highlight key information more clearly (enlargement of visuals, relevant figures, etc.) while the use of a navigation system brings linearity between the various slides.
