Upgrade Tip of the Day:

  • DON’T USE A LOT OF BULLET POINTS. PS – Do this instead.
  • Keep removing ancillary information until it doesn’t make sense. Then go one step backward.
  • Using simple animation to reveal key information at the right time can emphasize your message (such as a .5 second fade-in). Using animations like swirl, jump and bounce can be a distraction.
