PowerPoint Video – Color Pop and Push List Effects


I’ve got two interesting (and useful!) observations that can be used to make better PowerPoint videos for you today. Both of them are ideas I’ve borrowed (OK…ripped off) from

Andy Jenkins is a guy with mad video skills AND one of the smartest marketers around. I highly suggest you watch his latest video below and study it like I did. When you are finished, we’ll take a look at some key video tricks and I’ll show you how to do them!

WARNING: Yes, this video has no player controls and you can’t even Pause it (WTH?) so set aside about 18 minutes. It’s well worth it. Also, do NOT move your mouse outside your browser or you will be “Exit Popped” out of watching the video (WTH again!):

I’ve started my in-depth analysis of the best tips & tactics that can be “borrowed” from this excellent work. These clips are from my weekly Screencast Coaching webinar sessions. Let’s get started:

Coordinated Color “Pop” and the “Push List” Effect

I love the tactics and effects above but, of course, I’ve got a FREE TEMPLATE for you in this one:

NOTE: The “Color Sniffer” Tool I mentioned in the video is no longer required as of PowerPoint 2013 and higher: You now have an eyedropper color picker tool built right in!

BTW, if you’ve wondered why I give away so many tips and templates for free, it’s based on the concept of the “freemium”. I believe it is the BEST overall business strategy around and Beginners Luck is where I learned it.

    Instead of Color Sniffer, I use “ultimate color picker”, which works well for me.

    eyedropper exists in PowerPoint 2013. That being said. Your points are well taken. Great info. thank you.

    Thanks Shane. Yes, this video was made prior to that. The eyedropper is a great addition and solves the color-picking issue.
