It is better to email a PDF of your sales presentation than the original .pptx PowerPoint file or even .docx Word file.
- Fonts get rendered correctly, even if the customer does not have them installed on their computer.
- Many people open .docx or .pptx files on their Blackberry or iphone. A PDF is the safest way to make sure that everything renders correctly.
- A .pdf opens nicer and cleaner than a .ppt or .pptx that lands in you the slide edit mode.
- .pdf file sizes are usually a lot smaller than .ppt or .pptx file sizes.
- The file can’t be edited and reused for other uses than you want.
Of course your written sales proposal has to be readable and understandable; you shouldn’t send the sales slideshow that you presented during the sales meeting, but a well written sales proposal that can use some pictures from the slideshow in order to illustrate the text.
Juste “save as” .pdf your written sales proposal!
