How to Make Printables – The Detailed Process

Here is the step by step process to make a printable or freebie on PowerPoint to help you grow your email list or help your earn money by selling them on your website.

Once on PowerPoint you are going to want to change the slide size go to DESIGN – SLIDE SIZE – CUSTOM SLIDE SIZE – the ORENTATION  should be set to PORTAIT – then set it to CUSTOM then press OK .
Then click MAXIMIZE
Your slide will look like this after, always put the name of your site at the bottom so people will remember where they got your printable from. The top will be where you put your title.
To get to SMARTART go to INSERT then SMARTART. Here you can choose what type of graph you want your printable to look like.
Below is what will come up, it is always easier if you have everything in a Word document all you have to do is copy and paste into the little size box where it says “TEXT”.
You can change the colors of the boxes so they don’t look boring and dull! You want them to stand OUT! To change the colors go to DESIGN- COLORS- CUSTOMIZE COLORS. Then from there change your colors to what you like, save it as your blog colors or something you will remember. After that the box will close, go back up to DESIGN at the top and a drop down box will appear with all your colors you just picked.
If you want to play around with SMART ART and see if you like any other theme then go to DESIGN at the top and you will see LAYOUTS, just run your mouse over each one to see what you like best. Here are 3 different layouts I did just to show you how they look different ways.
Once you have chosen the perfect one Copy and Paste it into a new slide. Here you can use SHAPES  and the TEXT BOX  to promote your printable on your website and social media. This is a great way to get people to sign up for your email list.
