Marketing pitch deck sample
I also introduced a new way to pitch proposals. The following image represents a sample of my creative and engaging pitch deck style (I’ve censored the agency prices, the client’s logo and name).
This is a pitch crafted for a potential client who wanted to reach and sell his products to 3,500 pool dealers in one year.
This new look is designed to maximize engagement with a strong visual impact during presentations. It is not meant to be sent to a client without explanation, since no caption or detailed description are provided.
