Blacktonic is straight out of the magician's black top hat - a dead simple way to tell your story over the Internet to remote viewers. It lets you share your presentations with clients and prospects the way they were meant to be delivered.
Blacktonic is easy.
You upload the slides from your listing presentation or marketing deck as images and get a clean, minimalist interface to organize and shuffle pages. When you're ready to broadcast, you get a unique URL you can share with a client.
When they click on that link they can sit back and watch the demo, right from their browser. No third-party plugins or Flash required; no complex instructions needed to get started. They just go to a standard web page that can be viewed in any browser, Mac or PC. It'll even work on their smartphone.
You'll control the timing of the presentation by simply clicking on the next slide.
There is a better way.
Power users will appreciate that presentations you deliver over and over again can be archived and saved online. Simply share the same URL with a new client and walk through your deck over and over.
Good marketers are good story tellers. They control the pace, context, and flow of their presentations. The set-up and delivery are usually what's key. But too often, your message gets hobbled by the limitations of technology. But Blacktonic gets right out of the way and lets you remain in command.
It helps you become a better story teller. And kill it when you take the stage.
