How to Create and Customize a Free Theme in Google Slides

Apr 19, 2018 by

If you use a default design theme when you create a listing presentation or homebuyer seminar, you’re missing out on an opportunity to build trust and brand awareness. The good news? That’s easy to fix! In Google Slides, it’s easy to create a custom theme with your fonts, colors, logo and branding. Google Slides is a free tool included with every free Gmail account that makes creating, editing and sharing presentations from any device easy. Here’s how to create your own presentation theme in Google Slides.

Step 1: Create a new presentation
Go to drive.google.com and click “NEW” to create a new Google Slides presentation.

Step 2: Open the master file
The master file controls the global features of your presentation. Click “View” and select “Master” to create and customize your theme.

Step 3: Pick a theme
Choose a theme with a similar look to what you want. Don’t worry too much about colors and fonts; you can change these and many other details afterward.

Step 4: Name your theme
Click the “Rename” button to give your theme a custom name and differentiate it from the base theme.

Step 5: Make your edits
Any changes you make to the master slide change on all of your theme’s layout slides. That makes it easy to apply fonts, colors and header choices across the board. You may also want to use this feature to add your logo, business name or phone number to your presentation theme.

The “Background” button appears when you click in the empty area above your master slide; it has one of the largest visual impacts on your theme. You can upload an image to your background, choose a solid color, or apply a gradient for the theme’s background.

Step 6: Inspect your layouts
Once your master theme looks how you want it to look, scroll through the pre-formatted layouts to make sure the changes you made on the master slide look right on the individual layouts. If you have the same problem across several layouts, adjust your master slide to fix the problem across the board. If the issue is more localized, you can edit the individual layout in your theme. You can also create brand-new layouts for an even more customized theme.

Step 7: Save your theme
You want to be able to use your theme again and again, so title your completed theme as a template so you remember not to use this copy as a presentation.

Step 8: Access your theme
To access your theme, start a new presentation in Google Slides and select “Import Theme.”

Step 9: Find your theme
In the “Presentations” section of the import theme box, you can either scroll through the list of files to find your theme or type its name in the search bar.

Step 10: Import your theme
Click “Import Theme” to pull in your customized colors, fonts and layouts. After that, you’re ready to start adding your content.

3 Fool-Proof Organization Techniques

Apr 18, 2018 by

It often seems impossible to finish every task on your to-do list before the end of the day, and there is no worse feeling than going to bed worrying about everything you’ve got to finish tomorrow. Looking to break the cycle? You’ve got to be strategic.

The problem with the average to-do list is that if you write everything you need to get done in the foreseeable future, you’ll never be able to accomplish the entire list in a single day. Instead, break up your tasks into three manageable goals. You’ll be amazed at how good it feels to know you’ve done everything that you set out to do that day. Below, we’ve outlined three steps you need to take to make it happen.

Write down what you’re going to accomplish today. First things first: Write out a small list of tasks that are of the utmost importance and you know you can accomplish by 5 p.m. This shouldn’t be more than half a dozen items, although you can break down a larger task into more manageable pieces if you like. The idea is that you’ll be able to cross every item off by the end of the work day, leaving you satisfied and ready to enjoy your evening.

Put aside any extra tasks for tomorrow. In a second column, write down all the things you would like to accomplish today, but will realistically have to wait until tomorrow. Feel free to let this list be a little longer than your first one—you can always revise it later.

Future goals? Make time for them too. Have any long-term projects in the pipeline? Of course you do. But there’s no need to put them on your main to-do list, where they’ll languish day after day. Instead, place them in a third column, where they’re in sight but out of mind. If a free hour appears in your day, feel free to work on them, but don’t dedicate needless mental space to work that isn’t due for weeks.

At the end of the day, write out a new three-column to-do list for tomorrow, and leave work feeling accomplished and prepared for whatever your next work day has to throw at you.
