Step-by-step guide...

 

 

It’s best all round to edit our sales materials using Adobe Reader. If you don’t already have it, you can download it from here, and it’s 100% FREE.

NOTE: We’ll refer to our sales literature/material throughout this guide as ‘media’

1. This guide will differ slightly depending on which program/browser that you are using to view the internet...



Internet Explorer
Firstly, you’ll need to scroll down the page to the particular media that you want to edit. click on the image and it’ll save the media to the part of your computer where it usually saves files and media from the internet. You’re done for this step. Now you can move to step 2.



Firefox
Firstly, you’ll need to scroll down the page to the particular media that you want to edit. If you want to see the media in all its glory, click on the image and it’ll open the media in a new tab on your browser. If you’re happy with the media that you’re viewing, close the tab and just below the thumbnail image of the media that you’ve just viewed, you’ll see a line of text saying Click image to view - Or right click here and choose “Save link as”...

 

 

Follow this instruction and save the file to a place on your computer that you’ll be able to find easily. You’re done for this step. Now you can move to step 2.



Google Chrome
Firstly, you’ll need to scroll down the page to the particular media that you want to edit. If you want to see the media in all its glory, click on the image and it’ll open the media in a new tab on your browser. Incidentally, you will see blue areas of the document, which if you click on, you can edit the text! You could, do all of your customisation from Google Chrome, but you would only be able to print it. There’s no way of saving it (annoyingly). If you want to be able to save your document and you’re happy with the media that you’re viewing, close the tab and just below the thumbnail image of the media that you’ve just viewed, you’ll see a line of text saying Click image to view - Or right click here and choose “Save target as”...

 

 

Follow this instruction and save the file to a place on your computer that you’ll be able to find easily. You’re done for this step. Now you can move to step 2.

2. Now we want to edit the media, so you can close your internet browser. Go to the location of the file that you just saved and double click it to open. This is often in the ‘downloads’ folder if you are using windows.

3. Adobe Reader should open automatically. You’ll see that the document has product images and text. Some of the text will be in blue boxes....

 

 

4. Now we want to save the document. Click on the top left menu entitled ‘file’ and move down to the ‘save as..’ option towards the middle of the menu...

 

 

 

You can’t simply save the file, as you would be able to with other file formats and documents, so you have to use the ‘save as..’ command (unfortunately). A popup menu will appear and from there you can navigate to a part of your computer where you wish to save the file. You can choose to either save over the existing file, or you can save it as your own filename. Saving the document as your own filename is recommended as it’s the final element of customisation, plus you’ll always have a copy of the unedited original document stored, should you wish to revert to it for any reason. Now you’re ready to go to step 5.


5. Now you need to decide what to do with your new sales literature. If you want to print it, go to the file > print menu, as you would to print any other document. You could also attach the file to an email - again as you would with any other file.
Top tip: If you want to use the promo template in the body of your email as opposed to simply attaching the PDF (or both) then open the PDF by double clicking it, and in Adobe Reader, firstly (important) go to the document size dialogue box which is towards the top middle of the screen, and change the size to the ‘Zoom to Page Level’ option...

 

Now go to the edit menu in the top left of the screen and click on ‘take a snapshot’...

 

 

...now (important) CLICK ANYWHERE ON THE SCREEN. Once you’ve clicked anywhere on the screen, you should get a message stating that ‘the selected area has been copied’ and the window will turn blue... 

 

 

You can then go into your email message and paste the copied image by holding the ‘CTRL’ key and pressing the ‘V’ key or by using the paste icon if you’re using outlook...

 

 

6. Send the email out to your customers and then sit back and wait for the orders to roll in!
