What does it take to make a good business presentation? You have to have a creative presentation idea, well-structured plot, engaging points, attention-grabbing scenes, and, of course, a purpose. 

To make a productive and informative presentation means delivering your main message to your audience. So, when preparing a business presentation, you must consider your audience and its interests. Put yourself in their shoes and think about the ways you can interest, or even intrigue them. 

On your way to making a successful business presentation online, you’ll need helpful and easy-to-use tools, to win your audience over. Creative scenes, colors, icons, text, voiceovers, and music tracks, will take you a step closer to your goal. 

Renderforest is a platform to help you create your dream presentation online, using these tools. With a list of customizable templates, you will be able to complement your video presentations with unique scenes, characters, and other features. Check it out for yourself! 

If you want to make a presentation video with Renderforest but don’t know where to start, here’s a step by step tutorial of how you can do that. Let’s start right away! 

You’ll first need to be signed in to your Renderforest account. If you don’t have an account yet, sign up for free. Then, go to the “Create video” section on the menu, and then choose the “Presentations” sub-section. 

Business presentation - templates

Here you will find many video templates to choose from. Select a business presentation template you like and click on the “Create now” button, to start. For this tutorial, we’ll use the “Business presentation pack”, with more than 225 scenes.

Once you click “Create” on the next window, you’ll be transferred to a new window, from where you will be able to select the scenes you want to include in your business presentation.

The scenes here, are divided into categories to help you easily navigate and choose what you want. In the “Business studying scenes”, you will find creative scenes with characters in the studying process.

Once you select all the scenes you need, click “Insert” to confirm them and move to your dashboard, where you can start the editing process. 

The scenes here are flexible and easy to work with. Move the scenes by dragging them in the timeline, delete them by clicking on the trash box icon, and add new scenes by clicking on the plus icon next to your scenes. You can also duplicate and replace the scenes by clicking on the three-dot menu on every one of them.

Business presentation - edit scenes

To start adding your presentation text to the scenes, click on the text fields you want to edit and paste or type in your text.

If you want to add video or image files to your presentation, click on their respective fields and choose one of the options. Click “Upload”, to add it from your device, and “Media library”, if you want to add it from your previous uploads. To add a video or photo from the web, select “Video URL” or “Image URL” respectively, and paste the links.

The “Stock footage” along with the “Stock image” option, depending on the scene type, will offer you a variety of media from our collection. In case you want to change the video or image file, click on it, press “Remove”, and upload a new one.

Right after you add your video with any of these options and click “Insert”, you will be able to trim the video to take the exact parts that you want. Click on the “Add cut” button to cut more parts from your video and “Remove cut” if you change your mind. Adjust the sound of the uploaded video, if needed, before clicking “Done”

To add a music track or a voice-over to your business presentation, go to the “Music” section. Click on the “Add voiceover” button, to upload or record one, if you want to tell more about the presentation and the scenes. Cut, lower the volume, replace, or mute the voiceover as well, by clicking on the appropriate options. Note that each of the scenes can have a different voice-over, so it’s possible to leave some scenes without a voiceover, or record and upload your recordings for each of the scenes separately.
