Sales topics and PowerPoint presentations go together like peanut butter and jelly, so it’s no surprise that I tend to fall back on this theme pretty often. The problem is that it’s not so easy to create generic enough designs that are useful to many, so it’s usually a slow process to create something practical for those of you out there who are doing the sales grind.
For this free template, I decided to go really simple and use a lot of bright color to create interest. I started out by creating a vivid blue background texture for the cover slide, and then I experimented by placing a variety of objects over top of it just to see what would happen. Long story short, I really like the way that this bright red SALE tag popped of the background in a huge way. Yes, it’s bright and contrasty – but not too loud and obnoxious.
The interior slides are a bit less contrasty, but I decided to carry over some of that vivid blue into the sample table. I realize that some people don’t like dark background colors for tables, so if it’s not really your thing you can mix and match elements from any other of my other PowerPoint templates to find the combination that you like.
It will also help if your logo is red! I do recommend, however, that you use an all-white version of your company logo on the cover page and a gray version on the interior slides. Anything else (besides) red might clash with this theme. Go get it!
