Why Add a Voiceover to Accompany a Business Plan Presentation to Investors?

You've likely seen it before. Sweat is pouring down nervous entrepreneurs' heads as they pitch to the seasoned investors on Dragons’ Den (or Shark Tank if you're American).

The business owners have put their heart and soul into their businesses. Still, when it comes to delivering the pitch, nerves, the enormity of the occasion, and the need to deliver a lot of information in a short space of time take their toll, and it shows.

Giving a presentation is hard enough, but the stakes are even higher when you're trying to convince someone to invest in your business. You need to be clear, concise, and persuasive while simultaneously instilling confidence in your product or service.

The problem is that you might not be able to do all of those things at once, which is why adding a voiceover to your business plan presentation can be such a valuable asset.

With that in mind, here's why you might want to consider adding a voiceover to your business plan presentation.

1. It Can Help You to Relax and Focus on the Delivery

If you're not the most confident of speakers, then the thought of getting up in front of a group of people and delivering a presentation can be enough to send you into a blind panic.

Having to remember what you want to say while also worrying about how you're going to say it is a recipe for disaster. You're much more likely to trip over your words, forget what you want to say or come across as nervous and lacking in confidence.

By adding a voiceover to your presentation, you can relax and focus on the delivery. You won't have to worry about forgetting your place or what you want to say next because the voiceover will be there to prompt you.

Make no mistake; it won't do everything for you. But it will take some of the pressure off and help you to focus on delivering your presentation in the best way possible.

2. It Adds a Layer of Professionalism

A voiceover adds professionalism and polish to your presentation, which can help to instil confidence in your business. It demonstrates that you're serious about your business and that you're willing to invest in its success.

It also shows that you're willing to go the extra mile to ensure that your presentation is of the highest quality. This attention to detail can be the difference between impressing investors and leaving them underwhelmed.

3. It Can Take Care of the Tricky Numbers for You Upfront

Do you know your gross profit from your net profit? What about operating margins? If you're not a numbers person, trying to recall and explain financial data in your presentation can be a real challenge.

Investors will want to dissect your business's finances in order to assess its growth potential. But if you're not confident in your ability to get the numbers right, then you might find yourself stumbling over your words and getting tongue-tied.

This is where a voiceover can come in handy. Adding a voiceover to your presentation can ensure that the numbers are communicated clearly and accurately – freeing you up to focus on other aspects of the presentation and leaving the investors with a clear understanding of your business's financials.

Plus, you and your investors can refer back to it as and when needed.

4. It Can Help Bring Your PowerPoint to Life

PowerPoints (and other presentation software alternatives) are notorious for being dull and boring. But if you're using one as part of your business plan presentation, you need to find a way to make it more engaging.

One way to do this is to add a voiceover. An excellent accompanying voiceover will help bring the presentation to life and hold your audience's attention.

A voiceover can also help to add context and explanation to the data and visuals in your presentation. Especially useful if you're presenting to investors who might not be familiar with your industry.

5. It Can Make a Lasting Impression

Your business plan presentation is your one chance to make a good impression on potential investors. You must ensure that you make the most of it and leave them wanting more.

A voiceover can help you to do this by ensuring that your presentation is professional, polished, and engaging.

Remember, your pitch is likely one of potentially dozens that day and possibly hundreds in that week. So it would help if you did something to make yours stand out from the rest. A voiceover can be the perfect tool for doing just that.

Give Your Pitch Presentation the Best Chance of Success

Adding a voiceover to your business plan presentation can help impress investors and give your pitch the best chance of success.
