Established in 2013, Emaze now has 50 million + users and has assisted marketing/business professionals in creating over 100 million presentations. Combined, presentations built on Emaze have earned over 500 million views.
Emaze is pushing the boundaries in the way marketing and business professionals build presentations. The platform itself offers 3D presentation building capabilities — vastly differing from standard presentation tools such as PowerPoint. Emaze slides enable digital marketers to create animated and engaging presentations.
For example, if you want to make a graph in your presentation popup and be psresented in 3D, you can. Marketers can even animate various elements of their presentations such as text and photos. Emaze also offers services in everything from remote presentation to branding, analytics, as well as team management tools.
Emaze has 75 templates, numerous options for collaboration, advanced editing tools, a free trial, and plan. Note: There are limitations on both its free trial and ‘free plan.’ Each of its templates is mobile responsive and combines 3D visuals, videos, parallax as well as special effects.
Have a presentation in a country where you don’t speak the language?
That’s not a problem, Emaze makes it simpler than ever before to understand presentations in any language thanks to translation tools. As a result, the platform is also available in 12 different languages, including English, French, German, and Russian.
Whilst Emaze’s platform also enables users to build websites, blogs, photo albums and ecards, the focus of this review will be on the platform’s star product – the marketing presentation builder.
The majority of templates offered by Emaze are quite modern looking, clean and you can tell a lot of effort went into making beautiful and rather functional templates. This is apparent from the first moment you make edits to a business or marketing presentation.
In total, there are over 75 relevant, customizable and mobile-friendly templates, categorized into the below categories:
There is a blank template option offered too, which is the most customizable. Emaze’s blank template is accompanied by a few guidelines and suggestions to help inspire marketing professionals, but the elements can be deleted fairly simply.
Digital marketers can import their own PPT presentation and are given two options:
Use Emaze templates, backgrounds and fonts which give your standard PowerPoint presentations a facelift of 3D proportions.
Keep original powerpoint background and font styles.
After entering the main Emaze dashboard, you will be presented with a variety of options. For the purposes of this review, we will build a marketing presentation using one of Emaze’s pre-designed templates.
Emaze’s editor is jam-packed with tools that make your marketing presentation truly standout. From the editor, you can access settings, media, text and more.
Overall, the Emaze editor is easy-to-navigate because of its drag-and-drop nature. Emaze’s editor actually makes the process of branding your presentation to fit your website simple too.
Add custom colors to your presentation that match your site’s color scheme and customize fonts to match accordingly.
One of Emaze’s most impressive features is its ability to create 3D presentations. These kinds of presentations are vastly different than that of traditional presentations in that they are more interactive and allow participants to feel truly a part of the experience.
This is because you can add animations and 3D elements such as what you see below of a hand removing a tablet and bringing it back.
If you share your video via URL link, Emaze lets you make minimal search engine optimizations to help make your presentations search engine ready. Add meta tags to your visual content such as title, description, page keywords and language code.
This can all be done from settings.
Emaze’s platform is available in over 20 languages, but when it comes to creating a presentation, select from over 100 languages to translate your presentation into.

Emaze Mobile App
Emaze does have a mobile app that lets users watch, share and explore presentations in HD — all on the go.
If you’re lacking internet service due to a business flight and wish to go over your big presentation, do so by downloading your Emaze presentation offline and viewing it via the mobile app.
Emaze’s mobile app is available for Android devices. Each presentation comes optimized for mobile devices and tablets.
Sharing, Download & Publishing Options
Marketing professionals can share, download and publish their presentations using a number of methods. This includes sharing via email, linking to/embedding code, or with the assistance of Emaze’s WordPress plugin.
This way, site visitors can view your latest presentations directly from your company website.
Change privacy settings which allow presentations to be made visible, public, or private. This premium feature gives digital marketers more control over protecting trade secrets, etc. The feature is also great for collaboration — as you can give marketing team members various roles and facilitate collaboration anywhere around the globe.
Download marketing presentations as an HTML Video (MP4 format), Emaze Viewer, or a PDF. You can also publish presentations to a new domain, an existing domain, or connect to a custom domain with the purchase of Pro or Premium plan.
If you are wanting to secure new clients abroad or just want to provide a training session for new members of your digital marketing team, present remotely and let those on the other end see, hear, interact with, and chat live with your marketing presentation.
Regarding privacy settings, you must upgrade to make your presentations private/not accessible by those without a link.
Share to popular social media platforms:
Although you can view some key statistics, Emaze’s analytics feature is not as sophisticated as it could be. While there, marketing professionals can view audience insights and compare data increases/decreases from specified dates.
Gain insight into the number of views, views vs average time spent on a slide, views over time, and views by country.
