2. Simplify Your Ad Theme with Logical Key Points
More phrases, less sentences. That's the key to the simplicity of your Black Friday presentation. List the content of your ad presentation with three to five points. Limit the bullets to less than 6 in each slide.

3. Use Formal Fonts in the Black Friday presentation
To describe your product, use common fonts like Arial, Times New Roman or Verdana, rather than fancy fonts like Comic. Use bold large fonts (36 pts or bigger) for the titles and smaller fonts for the content (usu. no less than 30 pts) so that it can be read on screen when converted to video.

4. More Slides Don't Mean More Profits
Maybe you just want to include more about your products. But you should know it's not the number that matters, it's the shines that your ad gives out. Too many slides will distract rather than keep the audience. You can adjust the slide transitions to figure out an appropriate duration for the video ad, usu. no longer than 5 minutes.

5. Photos and Graphics Worth A Thousand of Words
Product photos or related are necessary to the Black Friday PowerPoint ad. To convey your selling ideas better, you can integrate quality photos, charts or clips relevant with the text. A PowerPoint ad full of text slides is not a real PowerPoint result.

6. Add in Animations and Transitions to Your Ad
A rich range of animations and transitions constitute the dynamic soul of PowerPoint. Sort some for your ad presentation. Note that you should avoid too much of such good effects. Otherwise, it will achieve the opposite to your expectation.

7. Give Some Thought to A Mood Music or Your Voice-cover
As it's going to be a self-running video, you can insert a piece of soundtrack, your very voice narration (if you have a trained voice), or even a movie clip that matches the product ad. Make your ad a cheer or a relief to your customers.

Following the seven tips above, you can make a better business PowerPoint ad. Next, you need to ensure that the PowerPoint ad for Black Friday can play on any computer.
