1. Introduciton: Hello, everybody. My name is Jason Trueblood, numb here today to walk you through the basics of using Google slides. How you guys can take a of, ah, really simple presentation and make it look really, really professional and clean. Um, using Google sites, I I've been a freelance presentation designer for the last two years. I've been building presentations for businesses and start ups and non profits for the last five. I love building slide shows and presentations, and I've just found Google slides to be the most effective tool in doing that. The ability to share with your team or collaborate on something. Add comments. Ah, and just the simplicity of use is just something I've really fallen in love with. So I just want to make this intro course on the basics of Google slides. How to take a, ah, a white piece of paper, so to speak and turned into something you can print out and feel confident in handing someone else 2. Getting started with Google Slides: slits dive in and get started with Google slides a couple things that we're gonna go over in in this course picking a theme. What kind of themes Google sides comes with. How to get consistency in your presentation. Had a load additional fonts onto onto Google slides. Google Fonts has a ton of different options on the really easy to install what websites are great for for free stock photos that you can implement in your presentation what websites are good for for stock icons that you can implement in your presentation how to use Google diagrams. Um and then we're just gonna build a a presentation from scratch and granite. It'll be a brief presentation, but I am confident you guys are gonna get the hang of it, um, that some of the stuff we're going to dive into when you're ready to first open Google slides, go to your G suite email account and in the upper right hand corner, right to the left of your ah, your little account icon is going to be a square with a bunch of other little squares inside of it. Select that in a drop down will appear once the drop down appears like middle of the screen . Typically is the Google Slides icon. It's a yellow icon on. You want to select that and then you'll end up on the screen. That you can see on my screen right now is the introductory screen. 3. Launching your Google Slides theme: now that you're into Google slides, you'll see on the right hand side. Ah, bunch of preloaded themes that Google Slides has ready for you, some people designing from scratch and just keep it simple. If it's like a internal internal report for a business or something, where it doesn't need a lot of design flair, a lot of people just designing from scratch, I tend to go with more of the solid colors personally. So I like This is simple Dark. A simple, dark theme in the first slide here is going to be your title slide. So you just enter a title like title. It'll slide in the second secondary title here is going to be like by Jason True. Uh, um, that's gonna be your title side. This if you so on these master slides. If you right click on the slide, it will open up a menu, and you can either apply different layouts like they have a title slide layout, a section header, a title with a body, etcetera. You can also change Change the theme eso. If you don't like this one after you have installed it, you can go back over here and change the theme. We will go with something a little bit, a little bit less black. Let's go with this one. This is a little bit lighter. A little bit blew her a little bit more of a happy color than black. But now this is our title slide. Once you have your title slide that you can go over here on the left hand side and then right click on the first slide and click new slide. And since this is an automatically loaded Google Google slides template, it will automatically load a ah header in the body slide. So now you have your title slide and your had your header in your body. So this we want to just say like company overview is our is our better for this particular slide. Now, in this slide, you can do something. I mean, let's just say for this example, we want to talk about like we talk about our team going to talk about our U Q one revenues , and we want to talk about our cue to blood. You can add bullets. You can also, you know, if you wanted to, you could upload an image on part of this while Google slides, auto populates all of all of these kind of layouts, you can change them. You can move them up or ah, or down Or, you know, move him halfway across the screen, an image on the right hand of the screen. You can do a lot with him, but it gives you a really good template to work from initially. Eso you can just keep repeating this process for as many sides as you need. So if you go over here to slide to and right, click on it and click new slide again, it will give you the exact same slide template with a header and body copy. So this one, since we wanted to talk about our team, this is going to be our team down here, we can say, like team member number one, and then we can add some text, you know, text about about the team member here, and so what you can do this is a is a good example of how toe manipulate the basic slide layouts that that Google slight tap. So now you have the text window open on the our team Slud and say, there's two team members that you want to talk about in this particular slide. If you select the outline, the blue outline of this text box and then hit control C and control V, copy that text box over. So then you have exact same fund, the exact same settings on the one you just copied. You see these red lines that pop up those air, the auto adjusting lines for for Google slides so that we have our team member, our team members in here, I think we want to spice it up a little bit. So what we want to do is we're gonna want to go ahead and up in the top part of the toolbar . Right here is a little circle and like that, 3/4 of square under it. And we want to click on that and go to shapes. Once we're under shapes, you know, you can pick a bunch of different ones, but for this I want to go with the rounded corner rectangle, and once you've selected a shape, you can drag it on the screen, and for this example, we just want to drag it around where our text box is and then make it a little bigger to account for the extra text that we're gonna put in it. So then that populates the rectangle on the screen. Once you have the rectangle on the screen way have a problem. So it's it's in front of the text layer that we already that we already wrote down What you're going to need to do is come up here to the the toolbar and go to arrange order and then send to back. And what that does is it takes that that the rectangle, and it sends it to the back layer of this particular slide and allows the copy to be shown on the front front part of it. Um, but it looks like this is a little bit wider than what we wanted to. We could go and draw this and a little bit, Um, using this this little middle icon here, um and it's a great color, which doesn't really fit our theme. So what we're gonna want to do is come up here to the paint bucket icon. Select that, and then we're gonna choose a blue because blue fits this presentation. Really Well, um, but now we have another problem are our text is still black. It doesn't show up very well on the blue. So what we want to do is select all the text and come up here to the top right part of the toolbar in the select text color. And then we're gonna go with white for this one. So it pops off the blue a little bit better, Um, and looks really clean. So what we can do is we can take this and select the rectangle we can control, see, and then control V and move it over here and align it with the other box. But we also have another problem. It's in front of the text again. So we're gonna come up here to arrange order and sent back. But we always kill the black text. So we're gonna come up here to text color, and we're gonna change that toe white. Great. So now we have our blue boxes with our white text and looks pretty good. But there's one thing that doesn't really work with this since we have a slide template, it takes up a little bit of room down here in the bottom, right corner Ah, where is on slide to hear? It works pretty well, you know. It's not interrupting anything. It's not in any things way. Ah, but for Slide three it is. It's it's overlapping these boxes and doesn't look great. It's what we can do is we can right click on the slide when come down here to apply layout and then we can select blank for this particular slide. So then it gets rid of that that, ah, the theme and allows you to have a little bit more white space to work with. So as you can see these, these blue rectangles air not centered. They're not really formatted that well, so we're gonna for madam. So if you select the first team member number ones, text a text box and then you hold down control and then select a rectangle behind it and move over here to team member dumber to select their text box and then select a rectangle behind it. You could move all of these at one time when I selected the wrong thing. So control, control. So now we can move it around, and we want it like center of the presentation. With enough white space or doesn't look too cluttered. That looks pretty good. But I'm not in love with the, you know, the text boxes in here with the team members yet. So what we're gonna do to make the team member name stand out is we're gonna actually put in a placeholder name. So we're gonna say this is John Doe, Um, and this is going to be Jane Doe. But still, I don't really like how those have those look. So what we're gonna do is we want the name to be a little bit more prominent. Since it's somebody's name s will come up here to the top part of the toolbar, and we're going to select the Align icon. Then we're gonna put it in the center. There were no bump this up from 18 point font to 24 point fun, and then we're gonna bold it. Great. I like how that looks. So we're gonna come over here to Jane Doe over and do the same thing. We're gonna go to a line center, gonna build it, and we're gonna move it up to 24 point font. Great. 4. Building your presentation: So now that we have our team slide all built out and we're ready to go on that we can go ahead and start working on are our four slide. So based on the outline, we're gonna want to talk about our our Q one Q one revenues. So if we right click on slide number three and then click new slide, it's gonna populate a new side. But since onside three, we didn't we opted for a blank template. Uh, slide number four, if you do it that way, is going to produce a blank template. So we're gonna go and delete that and we're gonna come up here to slide number two. We're right. Click on that and click new Slide. So then it produces a header and a body and right on theme, which is great. Um, but it's in the wrong place on our presentation. So side three, we can hold down, click and hold down, and then we'll move it down to slide for which great, you can move any of these around as you want. Ah, which is really, really handy now that we have slide for we're gonna name this Q one revenues which is great , but for this for revenue. We really don't want to show a, you know, bullet point list or anything like that where we want to show a graph or something. You know, a little bit more visual eso for this. We don't need the text so we can just delete that text box. Now that we have our Q ones revenue slide already to go, Since it's just 1/4 revenue, we don't really need a chart or graph for anything us. What we're gonna do is we're gonna come back up here to shapes, and we're gonna create a shape to show our revenue, and we're gonna bring it over here to the right hand side of the screen, and we are going to put it right in the top because we want everybody that sees this presentation, see our revenue from quarter one. But it's that gray color. We don't really like that great color. So what we can do to make it easier and quicker on you is we're gonna delete that we're gonna come back up here to slide three. And since we have already created thes rectangles, we can control, see then come down to this slide and then we can control V. That's not really where we want it in the side, but we can adjust the size of it, shrink it down, put it up here in the top right corner, which is great. The blues on theme. We're gonna go ahead and create a text box that goes in here were put. It's a 120,000. We're gonna change that font color, toe white. We want a bold it's everybody sees are great revenue number, and we're gonna center it and something. A new feature here that we haven't talked about yet is line spacing. Um, so we could come up here. Ah, alignment. Excuse me. Come appear to alignment and see this is icon with the arrows and line and the other arrow that'll push that number right to the middle. Um, and make it right in the center of that er, and yet that square rectangle Ah, which is gonna make it look really, really nice. So now that we have a revenue number in for slide number four, um and it looks pretty good. What we're gonna want to do is add a little bit of context is most people are gonna want to know. Well, you know, in this particular example, how how did you generate the revenue? Um, so we're gonna add that tax box back, and we can do that by coming up here to the action bar. And there's a little t with a little rectangle around or square around it, and we in Select that and then click on the screen and drag it across, and that will create our text box. And we want a bullet point us to tell people about how we how we generated the revenue. So we have a bullet point we could say, Well, you know, we sold a lot of products. You know, we we closed a new client, and then, you know, for this example, etcetera. Um, but this is really, like, small and kind of, you know, weird. Um, looks a little little lot. So what we want to do is you want to highlight all of this copy, and we want to format it a little bit, so it looks a little bit better. We're gonna come up here to the text color again and under theme, it shows you all the colors that are involved in your theme. So on the left hand side there's the blue, which is the same blue we used for the square over here. So we want to make the text color that blue again. So it fits in the theme. It looks really clean, but the font still a little bit small. So we're gonna want to go ahead and blow it up toe, say, 24.5. Make it a little bit. Now that's a little bit too much. Let's move back down 18. Perfect. So now that we have the 18 point font, it looks a little close together. Especially if you were gonna add a little bit more. Copy a copy in here. So let's highlight this again. And we'll come up here to line spacing in the action bar, and we're gonna move that to 1.5, so we'll space those lines out a little bit. And that way, if you add another one down here, like added a new sales rep to our team, then the spacing looks really good and really clean. But the font size is still smaller than the header, so it doesn't compete, and it looks. It flows really well. While this is really basic, it takes some really simple changes to take a presentation that's really basic into something that looks really clean and really professional. Using the blue looks really clean with the theme, and it matches consistency. Using the line spacing, you know in the bullet points makes a little bit easier to read for your audience. So just doing little tweaks like that can take a really basic presentation and take it up toe like Level seven and make it really, really easy for audiences to read and engage with and understand. So now that we have our Q one revenue slide roughly roughly designed and ready to roll, we now want to. Based on our outline, we want to create our Q two revenue pipeline. Eso We're going to walk through how we're gonna create that slide, how to make it look really good. And we're also going to incorporate a Google diagram into this slide on. That'll help. It'll spice it up a little bit and make it look a little bit more professional. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take slide four, We're gonna right click on it and we're gonna click New Slide. And that is going to spin up slide number five, which has a header area all ready to go in a body area, ready to insert some text into. But we're not gonna eat the body areas. We can just go and delete that for the header area. We want this to be cute too. Revenue, cancel revenue breath and you Q two revenue pipeline. There we go. We got our head of ready to go, and then we're gonna want to insert a Google diagram to display our Q two revenue pipeline . So if you go up to the top tab and click insert and then middle of the way down that option menu, you'll see diagram, the little window is gonna pop up on the right hand side of the screen with a bunch of different, preloaded diagrams that Google offers. So since we're doing revenue projections, we want to do something kind of simple. Um, So what we're gonna want to do is something like grid. Okay, so there's multiple great options here, which is great. We're gonna go ahead and we've got three main clients that we want to show in a pipeline. So we're gonna go ahead and use this green one, but we don't want it to be green. So we're going to select the color and then select blue so it comes out blue and then we're gonna select that it's gonna populate in our in our side. We can exit out of this diagram box of in the top right corner here once we're done, you know, we have this ghoul diagram in our slide and it's ready to go. Only problem is, it's not positioned Very well. Um, and if you only select one of them, you can only move one portion of it. So what you need to do is you click off the screen left click off the screen and then dragged across a box and select all of the all of the elements of the diagram. Once you've done that, you can drag it down a little bit, so it has a little bit more spacing, and then, from there, you'll be ready to edit. So for the 1st 1st client, we want to put a dollar amount in because we're talking about revenue so we're gonna put too, okay? And we're gonna format that. That's a little big. So we're gonna move it down to 14 point fun room of this down to 14 point phone as well, And then this last one is going to be 14 point fund as well. So the first client is worth 12,000 in our pipeline. The second client, let's just say, is worth 8000 in our pipeline, and our third client is were, say, 5000 in our pipeline. So now we've updated the three revenue options on the left hand side of this gruel diagram . And now we're into the bullet point section right in the center here. Um, so for this, we don't need a ton of options just because it's I mean one, it's it's an example. But to, um, there's not a lot you could talk about with a revenue pipeline in the first place. So what we're gonna do is we're going to we're going to select this this Ah, third option here, and we're gonna drag it into the center boom just like that. And then we can select this text box and delete docks. We don't need it. which is perfect. And actually, you know, amore efficient way of doing this over and over and over again is actually going to be to delete the bottom two. Select the top one control C Control V that populates the 2nd 1 And then if we control V again, it'll populate 1/3 1 Great. So this one was 8000 in revenue and this one was 5000 in revenue. So now we're ready to edit the text within the Google diagram. So now that we're ready to edit the copy inside of our Q two revenue pipeline, we can either select all of this and deleted and write something different. Or we can go back through and delete one of the time and write something different. We're gonna go with the second option there. So we're just gonna take this first line and back it up a little bit in this client is Let's say it's Company X great, and they want to order. They want order 500 units. It's ah, say $40 a unit on the 2nd 2nd box here. We want to go ahead and edit that as well so we can show you know what company it's coming from. This is gonna be company. Why? And they are going toe want they're gonna want, let's say 400 units and but they're only gonna pay. They're only gonna pay $30 a unit because we're friends in the last company is going to be cos e and they're only gonna take We're only gonna take 150 150 units and they're gonna pay the purchase price of whatever. Let's just say 40. Unite again. Um, so there you can see how you can edit all of these different boxes of copy inside the Google diagram. Now, looking at this now it's a little bit small. So what we're gonna want to do is is select the first, the first Google diagram section there, and we're gonna highlight all the text that's in it. I'm gonna come up to our font size and we're gonna try out tendency. All Big 10 is 10. Looks pretty good. So we're gonna go with that on all of them. So we select the text box and then highlight all the text within the box, go upto font size and select 10 and then for the 3rd 1 We're gonna do the same thing. We're gonna highlight the text, We're gonna go up to the top and we're going to select font size 10 whom that looks great. Something else is. Now that we have we in even shorter box, it looks a little off because it's not exactly center. So what we can do is we can select the first Google Diagram box, hold down control, select the 2nd 1 and then the 3rd 1 and it will select all three of them at once. You can make edits to the outside like the blue blue background of the Google diagram all at the same time. So now you have mall selected, you can hold down the shift icon and then select this this ah center box here and moving in . Once you move it in, it will shrink everything inside the box to make it a little bit smaller, which is great. So this is an appropriate size. Yes, we can highlight it. Move down here under Q two pipeline, which is great from there we go. So we've designed our cue to pipeline slide and it's all ready to go now. we want to create a thank you slide now that our presentations over. So I've gotten all three of these bullets accomplished, so we want to create a presentation slide. We're gonna right click on this. We're gonna select new slide and then a man. See, this gave us the regular slide template again. But we can make it quick and easy edit to that. If you right, click on the white space in the slide and then go down to apply layout. Then you can pick a different layout for this particular slide. So what we want, actually, is this section title and description slide. And here we're going to put thank you. And here we're gonna put info at actually, we're gonna start a little different. When you say questions, email info and company dot com. It's great. 5. Take your presentation to the next level: So now that we have are Questions Section and a way for people that contact the company with any questions, we are going to want to add a photo over here on the right hand side of Slide six. So there's a couple of different websites that I would recommend to get free stock photos from, but my my personal favorite is a company called Pixels. Most of time you can just search free free stock images, and you're gonna get a number of sites that come up with a bunch of free, free stock photos that you can use. So let's go look at pixels here so you can search whatever you want. They also have some free stock video. If you ever care to use that in your presentation, which is it's great if you need it. But you can search whatever. They have a bunch of really high quality images on here. And for this we want to We want to show a team, you know, Um, so we're just gonna type in team? No, that's not how you spell team. Great. So, you know, actually, this let's see which one of these is going to go with her back around the best. I want something kind of light to go with the blue color. This one's gonna be perfect. So if you go to the top right corner, once you found the image that you would like, you can download the photo, go straight here to your device. And now that it's downloaded, you can come over here back to Google slides. And in the top action bar, you can click, insert image, upload from computer, and then you go to your download folder and select the image that you downloaded. So now we want to put that dead center. Actually, we want to blow that up a little bit. I want to make it look pretty good. So instead of this blue, we're gonna actually have this this image. But the problem with this image is you can't get it. Exactly, since we just downloaded that, you can't get it exactly the right size for that blue space. But what we can do is now we have the image selected. If you double click on the image, it will come up with these little black bars. And if you select one of the little black bars, you can crop the image, go and crop the left side now great. And I'm gonna move it up and there we go. So that fits perfectly. Now where? The Blue waas. So this is another example of how you can take a Google Slides template that already looks pretty good, but you can make a couple of different little tweaks to it to make it really jump off the page, like instead of just a plain blue color. In this slide, we added a photo that was free off the Internet and added it in here and makes it look a whole lot more professional, clean shows a little bit of a team vibe. You could do a lot with a couple free stock photos. So now that we have our think you slide all wrapped up, what we're gonna want to do is go back to slide number one and then walk back through the slide just to make sure that there was nothing missed that there's nothing that we could add to make the slide deck look a little bit better and a little bit more professional and little cleaner on. Then we're gonna wrap this up and I'll show you how to export it. How to share it with other people. Had a title it, and then it will be ready to distribute to whomever you'd like. So let's just take a minute review that the title slide. Here we have the Google themes slide title slide that we're using and we have. You know, I don't What do we want to call our color mark company? Here we can say, Let's just say Mark company name. Make it look good Soul Hansen A little bit. And this we just put, you know, mid year reports that gives a little bit better picture for slide number two. We have our company overview, which I guess this is more like a more like a deck overview, which is fine. Um, and that shows the three bullets of the three different slides we're gonna talk about. Let's go ahead and spoof this up a little bit, So on the right hand part of the screen, you can select the Blue Square and then move over the text box. So it's on Lee taking up roughly half the screen. Now we can highlight all of the text that's within the box, and we're gonna wanna move that up to a 24 point font, and then we're gonna want to separate that. So if we go appear to text spacing, line spacing and then 1.5, you want to space that out a little bit more, So there it's a little bit bigger, a little easier to read. People can see it. That's great. Um, and then we're gonna come back over here to our stock photo area, and we are going to find another photo, Except it's going to be oven office. See which office going to fit best. Let's just go Something simple for this example. Top right corner. We can download the original size boom. It's downloaded onto the computer and we go back to the slide deck and we can go to insert image upload from computer and boom right there is the download ready to roll? Then we can insert it into our presentation deck, and we are actually going to double click on this one and crop it so it's more of a square . We can blow that image up a little bit more, actually. What we're gonna do is we're going to crop it a little bit more and make it a smidge bigger . Really. What we want to do is just cover up this blue, so it looks a little bit cleaner. There we go. So we have an image and something you can do. So see how the image has a tonic color in it, and it's kind of dominating this particular slide. So what we can do is we can right click on the image, and then we can go to four about options we can put a just, and we can adjust the transparency of this image so that it sinks a little bit mawr into the slide. If we wanted to, we can also adjust the brightness of it, make it really dark, really light. So for this example, we're gonna want to make it a little bit darker, so it doesn't dominate the page quite as much. And boom, there we go. We have a little bit of ah jazzed up deck overview slide that's ready to go ready to share with the team. And now we're just gonna move on to slide number three and then 456 Make sure this decks all ready to go. So now that our deck overview slide is all set and ready to go, we can move on to slide number three. The our team slide on here. It's a pretty, pretty basic slide Anyways. There's no need to over complicate this couple of things that are cool that we can dio is. It looks a little crowded compared to the to the header. We can just select both those move it down a little bit, so it's not nearly as crowded. Another cool feature that we can tap into here is if you select the left blue box and then hold control and select the right blue box and then right click. Come down to the bottom toe format options and then click drop shadow. You can add a drop shadow to the boxes, adds a little bit more of a three D element to it, makes it pop off the page a little bit more. But our team slide is pretty much ready to roll, so let's move on to slide number four, which is our Q one revenue slide. This slide has a couple of cool things. Has ah blue box up here with the revenue number that we achieved in quarter one. It also has some some bullet points about how we achieve that revenue in Q one. But something we want to add is an icon. So one of my favorite websites to add icons is called Noun Project. So now that we're on now on project, you can search for any icon you want. So in this case, since we're talking about revenue and we're talking about dollar signs, we want to show an increase of something. So hopefully, like Graphite Connell show up or an increase in revenue, something that indicates that our revenues growing. It looks like we got a bunch of really great icons here. So let's go with Let's just go with a simple one. Here was black perfect. So we can say, Get this icon. You can pay for a plan on noun project. If you want, you can get the vector. Ah, the factor images Oregon, go with a basic download and use it for inspiration or, you know, project or what have you Now this just downloaded onto my computer swing Pop back over here to our slide deck. Oingo insert image upload from computer Select our Icahn Boom. Now we have, ah, black icon in here. And if you don't want the little the name on the bottom of it, you can simply just crap that out. It's pretty pretty simple. Pretty straightforward. So we have this really cool icon, actually, what we're gonna do is we're gonna move this slide around a little bit. We want to select the text box with the revenue in the top right corner. Then we want to hold control and select the blue box. Under that, we're actually gonna move this down to the bottom part of the screen, and we're gonna move the icon to the top, right part of screen. We're gonna manipulate this blue box a little bit just to make it look a little bit more appealing and a little bit easier to read. So we're gonna move it across here. We're gonna move it down. Really great there. So we go. So now we've added an icon. A free stock icon. From now on, project this Cuban revenue slide. We've updated our revenue number, so it looks a little bit more official. It pops off the page. Really Well, we've got some bullet points on here that are all ready to go. So I would say this slides all set and ready to go. Now that we're doing Slide four, we're ready to sit down and review the q two revenue pipeline side. So right now all we have is Google diagram that's in in this slide that we already customized earlier in this course is what we want to do here is we want to add an image just to make this come to life a little bit more. It's We're gonna go back over here to pixel, and we're gonna find a an image that signifies, you know, pipeline of sales, pipeline of sales, that is. So now we're gonna find an image that indicates a pipeline of sales or an increase in revenue. This this photo here looks pretty good. Handshake Getting a deal done through the top. Right corner weaken. Download. The original image file is gonna go down onto the computer from there. Then we can maneuver our way back over here to our Google Slides presentation. We go to the top, we can say insert image upload from computer. And here is our guys shaking hands. So it's a pretty basic image, and we're actually just gonna crop this tiny bit. So it's just a pretty basic image. One thing we can do to spiff this image up a little bit is we can toss a background on it. So if you come appear to the action bar and click shape and then square and then a rectangle and go over to your image and then trace the image, it's gonna turn out to be gray. But if we go over here to the fill color, we can change it to the blue color that we use in the presentations, which is great. Now we go to arrange order sent to the back, and now it's behind the image. But if we move the image down into the right, it looks like kind of a stacked. I don't know what you call it, actually, like a stacked stack second image brings a little bit more life to the design, a little bit more flair to it. If you want to even take it a step further, if you select both the image and the blue rectangle behind it and then right click and go down to format options. You can select drop shadow and add a drop shadow to it. That'll bring it a little bit more off the screen, make it look a little bit more realistic. Just a couple different ways to add a little bit of flair to your presentation. Get it ready for other people's eyes. And with that, we're back at Slide six, which is the think you slide that we already worked on. So after a quick review of the deck, everything looks really good. We made all improvements. We touched a couple things up. It's always good to take one more final spin through, so I've got a title slide here. We have our deck overview slide looks really clean. Professional. Ready to roll. We have our team slide in here. You know, whomever. We just need to come back through and fill in the team member bios slide four. Revenue projections are Cuban revenues. Scuse me. All ready to roll Slide number five revenue pipeline. We're ready to roll. We had this pretty slick image over here on the right hand side and then the thank you slide again. Looking good 6. Sharing and exporting your presentation: So now let's talk about sharing and exporting. So when we're talking about exporting our presentation, first things first we have entitled it yet. So we're just gonna name this mock company Mark Company name? Ah, that's gonna be the name of our title. But obviously, any time you come up here and you can change, change this too, from our company name to mock company deck and it'll update Another cool thing about using Google slides is all the changes that we've made update every three seconds on Google Slides gnome or forgetting to save it gnome or losing it somewhere. Google slides allows you to save really quickly, and you don't even have to think about it. It does it on its own. So there's no risk in losing the work that you've already created because Gula Slide has your back on that. So now that we've gone through our presentation, we got it all ready to go. Let's talk about how to export. So first step is we changed our title, which which we just did. Second step, you can pop into the file option upon the toolbar, and Google Science is a bunch of really different cool options. The 1st 1 is download as so you can download. If you prefer to share these sorts of presentations as a Microsoft Power point, you can even download from this on the Microsoft Power Point and then send it, Share it, work on it. Whatever you want from there, you can also download it as a PdF, which I've always found to be really handy when you're sending it to someone. UM, you know a lot of times, if it's a sales proposal or quarterly report, you don't want it to be edible. You don't want someone to be able to manipulate your numbers or change anything in the deck , so you export as a PdF, and you can send it right on over to their email. From there, you can also export as a J peg or a PNG or factor. Ah, bunch of different options. Here you can email. It is an attachment. This version histories has nothing to do with exporting. But it's a really cool feature that Google Slides has so hypothetically, let's say we made a bunch of different changes to this presentation that we don't like anymore. What we can do is we can pop in here to see version history and on the right hand side of the screen, it's gonna give us an entire list of every time we've made edits to this presentation. So on the 24th we made a bunch of different edits, so it saved it every every couple minutes for a long time. And this is really helpful for either. If you've made a bunch of changes that you don't like anymore or something accidentally got really screwed up, you can take this and you can edit it. And if you just select one of these version histories, I don't want to show it now because it will take us back to before we met all these changes . But if you select one of these version histories, it will take you back to how the deck was before it saved. Super handy tool surprised Microsoft Power Point doesn't have it highly valuable. So now that we've gone over version history how to export, we are going to look into how to share. We can go ahead and exit out of the version history, and in the top right corner you can see the share button So with this, you can enter an email address shared to anybody you want. This little pencil means that they can edit. They can also leave comments, or you can restrict. Restrict them to just viewing it super handy on the top. Right corner, it says. Get Cheryl Link. This is a super handy tool. When you're sending proposals to new clients where you're doing marketing, outreach or you're connecting with someone on a cold email, what have you sending these Google links is extremely helpful, and you could just copy this into your cook clipboard if you want. You can also come up here and say, You know, this is a pretty handy feature here. You want to turn off. Only specific people can access this. That makes it a pain if you're sending it to a client and they have to request access. So if you were sending it to a client, you would want to pop in here and turn this off and then you would want to copy the link again. But this allows you to send one link to a bunch of different people. That's all come all comes back to the same deck. It's Using the Google share options is really simple, really straightforward. You can either add someone's email from your contacts. You can copy and paste someone's email in. You can use the copy of the share link, and you can share that link to a bunch of different people all the same time. It's a super handy tool. I love using this portion of it. It's really easy to collaborate with team members on it and send off to new sales prospects or what have you. So that's the sharing portion of Google Science, how you send it to people, how how they view it. Ah, right next to the share option. In the top right corner is the present option. Eso if you write. If you click on that, it's going to send you into the present, just like Microsoft Power Point does, and you can just view your presentation from there. Click Escape. It will take you back in your presentation that will drop down. On the right. Is presenter viewer from the beginning kind of really basic basic tools to help you present how you want to know on the bottom part of the screen. You might have noticed this already, but it says add speaker notes. So if we want to say, you know, talk about the company's history, we can do that, Um and it'll show us not. And then if we come up back up here to present and say Ah pres interview, it'll show us the speaker notes, right here as we're presenting, which is is pretty handy when you're in front of a crowd. So now that we have the sharing and the presenting parts of this down, that's that's pretty much it, you know, we went through. We built a really basic slideshow. I showed you the ins and the outs of how toe start using Google slides, how to edit things and gruel science. How to make it look really professional, really clean had an add an image where you can find a really cool stock photos where you can find really cool stock icons. Ah, a lot of different things wrapped into this really quick high level. How to use Google Slides Intro course. Thank you so much for watching it.
