Why most marketing presentations don't work

No one has patience for marketing presentations. And what’s the point of making a marketing presentation if no one will listen or bother to read it?

Whatever marketing presentation you’re making at the moment it’s likely full of attention-killing legacy “best practices”. Even worse, it’s drowning in a sea of noise by other presentations competing for your audience's attention.

Let me show you some marketing presentation examples that manage to avoid common presentation mistakes, and manage to stand out, grab attention, and make a persuasive case.

How to create an effective marketing presentation

Each presentation has its unique recipe for success. Whether it's a strategy, a plan, a branding project, a product pitch, or a performance analysis, they all have little details to look out for.

Strategy & plan marketing presentation

To breathe life into your strategy and plan presentation, paint a vision of the future.

  1. Start with a robust situational analysis, highlighting key findings about your market, competition, and audience.

  2. Define SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound) marketing objectives that directly link to your strategies.

  3. Present clear and concise strategies, directly aligned with the objectives.

  4. Wrap up with detailed tactics and action plans, using compelling visuals to engage your audience and simplify complex information.

Branding & product presentation

When presenting on branding and product, you're essentially telling a story.

  1. Showcase the personality, values, and unique selling proposition (USP) of your brand.

  2. Introduce your product or service, making it tangible and valuable to your audience.

  3. Utilize customer testimonials, case studies, or live demos to demonstrate the benefits and solve problems.

  4. Make your audience fall in love with your brand and product to create strong brand ambassadors.

Performance analysis presentation

Performance analysis presentations are all about the numbers — but don't let that intimidate you.

  1. Begin with an overview of campaign objectives and strategies used.

  2. Dive into the data, highlighting key metrics and KPIs to analyze performance.

  3. Use clean and clear charts and graphs to visually present the story of the campaign.

  4. Showcase wins and successes, but also discuss areas for improvement as valuable learning opportunities.

  5. Conclude with key takeaways and next steps, demonstrating transparency and setting the stage for ongoing success.

Marketing presentation examples that work

It’s time to see some examples of how marketing presentations are made in practice.

All the examples I bring you here are 100% customizable and you can use them as templates to create your own content.

These examples are modeled after engaging presentations based on our extensive data. They apply content structure and best practices we’ve seen work for high-stakes presentations.

Marketing plan & strategy

This example of a marketing plan presentation gives you a lean and effective structure to present the essence of your plan to your team members and higher-ups.

It cover everything from challenges, target audience, goals, KPIs, game plan, and budget, to milestones.

As Head of Marketing at Storydoc I use this format to launch our activity every new quarter and get everyone onboard.

Marketing plan one-pager

This example is a shorter version of the marketing plan example above. It can be used as a useful recap after presenting the plan in full face-to-face.

It can also be very effective to give decision-makers (internal or external) a quick overview of your plan without overloading them with details.

Marketing agency pitch deck

This marketing presentation example is the go-to for any creative agency or marketing services provider.

It’s a kind of company intro with the essential information about the services you provide, your strategic approach to marketing, and what makes you different.

What makes this marketing presentation so effective is the attention grabing video cover, its commitment to measured results, the case studies it presents to back up the claims, and the clear pricing offer that enables buyers to make an easy educated decision.

Marketing one-pager

We’ve seen this marketing one-pager format work well for agencies and marketing service providers. It’s the minimalistic version of the agency pitch deck I showed earlier.

It works because it gives context fast and communicates value very simply.

It tells your prospect who you are, outlines a major problem they need to address, and explains briefly how you can solve it for them and what the process is going to look like.

It finishes with the benefit the prospect can expect to gain and ends with a strong CTA last slide with a calendar app that lets prospects easily book a meeting.

Early stage marketing proposal

This marketing proposal presentation is used by many of our clients instead of the marketing agency pitch decks. It’s a more baked version, more serious if you like.

This approach works better for big clients that need a more personalized, and detailed pitch.

This example includes concrete data about the prospect’s market, and addresses specifics like the goals you propose, your marketing strategy, tracking and measurement, timeline, and budget.

Late stage marketing proposal

This marketing proposal presentation is used by many of our clients in the later stages of their sales cascade.

Notice that it is personalized to a specific prospect, and addresses them by name.

This example uses dynamic variables from your CRM to pull contact info directly into your presentation, such as the contact’s name, job title, brand colors, personal message, pricing offer, and more.

It includes all the talking items you’ve covered with your prospect which are critical for them to make their buying decision.

And most importantly, the presentation includes an e-signature box that lets the prospect seal the deal then and there.

Media kit

If you want to have a cozy relationship with media and news outlets then having an attractive and well-organized media kit is pretty important.

It’s used by our clients to take control of how their company is presented in the media.

It’s a basic marketing tool that comes in handy whenever you’re working with other publishers from from newspapers, magazines, or TV, to social media or blogging influencers.

Marketing case study

This marketing case study presentation is a great addition to your prospecting and sales process.

It follows the Challenge-Solution-Results framework that proved to be the most engaging content structure based on our data.

The interactive format grabs the attention of prospects and helps keep them engaged throughout.

Storydoc lets you easily generate an animated GIF you can drop in your prospecting email to catch prospects’ eye and compel them to click the case study link.

Marketing presentation best practices

A winning marketing presentation can make all the difference between a yawn and a standing ovation. But, how do you actually do it?

Craft that perfect blend of content, storytelling, brand message, personalization, and relevancy.. Let’s break it down.

1. Hook

The first 3 slides determine whether people will bounce or read on - make them count.

  • Think deeply about your hook
  • Use the person's name and company logo in the title
  • Prioritize the information that matters most to your audience
  • Be very short and to the point

Our data shows that 32% of people bounce from your deck in the first 15 seconds. But more importantly 80% of readers who cross the 3rd slide threshold will read the deck in full.

Imagine you were giving a speech and after 3 minutes a 3rd of the audience just stood up and left the hall. That would feel horrible, wouldn’t it? So why do this to your decks?

What you can do is write a relevant, personalized, and intriguing hook, and place it on slides 1-3 of your deck.

  1. Make the audience understand that you’re writing FOR THEM, about THEIR NEEDS, but also that you have something amazing up your sleeve.
  2. A little known trick to get attention is to tell them how long reading your deck will take. Time is their currency, you wouldn’t ask a client for “money” without tellig them how much, would you?
  3. You should also have a strong visual hook. Use a video, animated, or interactive cover slide. Make it so they can’t look away.

Here's an example of a video cover that acts as a visual hook:

2. Storytelling

Every great marketing presentation is a story with a beginning, middle, and end.

Hook your audience with a compelling introduction, then build intrigue as you progress, and finish with a memorable conclusion. Ensure your story has a human element — this emotional connection can turn listeners into advocates.

Here’s our recommended storyline structure:

How to write a presentation storyline that creates interest

3. Brand messaging

Consistency is key in brand messaging. Your presentation should reflect your brand's voice, values, and visual identity at every turn.

This not only enhances recognition but also builds trust. Remember, a strong brand doesn't just sell a product or service, it sells an experience.

You can do this by pulling your brand colors from the brandbook:

4. Personalization

Make your audience feel special with personalization. Address them by name, incorporate their company logo, or include a heartfelt personal message. Tailor your call-to-action to resonate with them on a personal level.

Our data shows that presentations with personalized notes are 68% more likely to be read in full compared to general presentations.

More impressively, personalized content led to a 41% increase in average reading time, and presentations customized for a specific prospect were shared internally 2.3x more often.

So, sprinkle in that personal touch, and watch engagement explode!

5. Relevancy

Address your target audience's pain points in your value proposition and content. Show them you understand their challenges and you have the solution they've been looking for.

When your audience sees themselves in your presentation, they're more likely to see the value in what you're offering.

6. Interactivity

Including interactive slides in your presentation increases engagement.

Our data shows that presentations with tabs to click through, live data calculators, sliders with case studies, or customer testimonials were scrolled to the bottom 41% more often, leading to a 21% longer average reading time.

  • Integrate interactive features like videos, tabs, live graphs and charts, calculators, or sliders
  • Use video and animations to illustrate complex ideas
  • Avoid text-heavy slides
  • Test user interactivity to ensure all the features work
