Whether through crowdsourcing or highly focused online offerings, businesses have an increasing number of affordable choices for numerous professional services. Now joining the ranks of SitePoint, crowdSPRING, Inkd and PointBanner for graphic design, Gramlee and Wordy for editing, customAdArt for advertising images, and We Shoot Bottles, Flaschenfotos and ViaU! for photography — to name just a few — there’s PPT Salon, an Indian firm that specializes in custom presentations with a 48-hour turnaround.

Steering clear of templates, PPT Salon creates custom, finished presentations at prices beginning at just USD 99 for a presentation with 20 slides.
