8 Tips for Virtual Investor Presentations
OTC Markets Group just completed its OTCQX Energy & Mining Virtual Conference and Vintage thought it would be a good time to share their “Tips for presenting your non-deal roadshow to an online audience“.
Virtual investor conferences and presentations are especially important for microcap public companies. With tight IR budgets and limited management bandwidth, virtual presentations are a great way for microcap management teams to reach a diverse group of investors at a greatly reduced cost (time and monetary) compared to traditional in-person meetings.
Having hosted hundreds of CEOs and virtually connecting them to a pool of over 40,000 institutional and individual investors, the team at Vintage are experts in virtual investor presentations.
Their 8 Tips for Virtual Investor Presentations are as follows:
1.) Get a PROFESSIONAL photographer to make a head shot of you / CEO / presenting executives.
2.) Unless your speakerphone is very, very expensive (or you do not have opposable thumbs) pick up and use the phone’s handset.
3.) The competition is not a peer in your sector; it’s that cute cat video on YouTube.
4.) Simplify your slides’ visuals.
5.) Speak sloooooooowly.
6.) For retail investors, deliver the most important message first.
7.) You may need to seed the Q&A with a couple of your own questions.
8.) Rehearse the presentation on your company’s WebEx type account.
