I never have to reinvent the wheel. And as a professional accountant, you can imagine how many different "wheels" I use every day! Profit & Loss statements, Balance Sheets, Cash Flow Forecasts, Time Sheets, Break_Even Analyses, Margin Calculations, Business Plans, etc, etc. When using your own prior work as a financial template, you get another benefit _ you are so familiar with the template that it takes you no time to figure out how to use it. And each time you refine it just a little bit more. So pretty soon your templates run like a Swiss watch! All the bugs have been worked out, you have tested it with many different clients and many different business scenarios and you know you have something you can depend on. Financial Templates as Tools _ For someone who is not a finance professional, financial templates serve a slightly different purpose. They still save time, of course, but they also provide a tool that person would have to pay someone else to develop.
Video _ Video is a great way to take people on a tour with photos, show the development progression of an idea, inspire, teach, announce something new, or otherwise show sequencing and motion. And video is SEO_friendly for websites. Create your slides with pictures, text, and whatever other graphic components you want to use to show your idea concept. Add narration and transitions to your slides, setting transition timing to work with your narration as appropriate. Then use the "Save and Send" option at the "File" menu tab and "Create a Video". You can add music as "narration" prior to this stage of the process, or queue music to the video with a video editor after you create the visual video. I've created many videos using PowerPoint without expensive video production software and equipment!
