When asking your advertiser for approval of your media plan, it’s helpful to present it through a persuasive PowerPoint presentation. It shows you’ve done your homework and it’s a great way to summarize an incredible amount of detail into a concise visual format. Most importantly, it’s an effective way to get prompt sign-off on your media authorization.

Unfortunately, it can take hours to create the PowerPoint manually: copying and pasting logos and screenshots, manually creating charts, slicing and dicing the media plan. Besides being unpleasant grunt work, this is time you could otherwise be spending on strategy, optimization, and other high value activities.

Good news… you can now create a persuasive PowerPoint in a small fraction of the time with Bionic.
