Have you signed up to Genially? You probably can’t wait to get started. We understand: you’re just a few clicks away from creating the amazing content you didn’t even know you could, and it’s much easier than you think!

You can start creating your content in a few different ways, depending on what you need.

In this article, we’ll tell you three ways to start creating great content:

  • Using a template
  • From a blank page
  • Using a Powerpoint presentation

Start creating using a template

In Genially there are thousands of templates for creating all kinds of content: presentations, infographics, gamified content, training materials, and more. The templates are organized into categories to make it easier for you to choose.

To access the Editor, the first thing you need to do is choose a template. Click on Create genially and browse the different types of templates, or use the search bar to quickly find what you need.

If you click on the thumbnail of a template, you’ll see its content, structure, and the pages it contains. That way you can see at a glance if it matches what you want to create. To learn more about using templates, click on this link.

Start creating from a blank page

To start from scratch, click on Create genially and choose the Blank creation option. You can start creating by clicking on Use this template, or choose the dimensions you want for your genially. To do this, modify the height and width fields and click on Create.

Start creating using a Powerpoint presentation

You can also create a genially using an existing PowerPoint, which is a great option for breathing new life into your content. You can import a .pptx file as long as it does not exceed 100 MB. We explain the steps in this article.

Importing the content you’ve created with PowerPoint into Genially will allow you to add stunning interactivity and animation effects to engage your audience from beginning to end. You can also edit all the elements, such as texts, images, tables, etc. With Genially’s Editor, it’s really easy to turn any PowerPoint into amazing content.
