Can Microsoft's Sway supercharge your listing presentations?

LIVE NOW: Inman Connect San Francisco
Tune-in now to catch the livestream. Don't miss this chance to see real estate leaders tackle the industry's top problems.

The world has come a long way from the basic PowerPoint presentation slides that made us “ooh” and “aah” back in the 1990s; so make sure your real estate business does not get left behind.

Now that millennials outnumber baby boomers, it might be time to dust off your presentation skills in order to appeal to wider audiences that are accustomed to the bells and whistles of Keynote, Emaze, Prezi and the like.

Whether you are loyal to Microsoft Office or spurned that software suite many moons ago, its new presentation app, Sway, is worthy of a double-take as you craft your next listing presentation.

To sway you on its merits (pun intended), I used their app to create this presentation in only a few minutes:

What do you think of Sway? It has high potential if you need to concoct a presentation for a prospective home seller within minutes — especially if you have ready market data and content available, like from your realty firm, MLS or local board of Realtors.

But it might be a fail if you are limited to using certain mobile devices while you are on the run. Sometimes you just don’t know until you try something for yourself. Because Sway is currently free, it might be time to give it a whirl.

As you can see, I like keeping up with the latest and greatest to help your business flourish. If you want more tips to transform your sales game plan using today’s top technology, then join me for my next webinar, “Why Streak should be on your real estate radar.” (That is a continuation from this Inman post, in case you missed it.)

Happy selling.
