Document Sharing: 5 Things You’re Missing Out On

Whether it’s onboarding, sales, or internal communications, making sure you share your message effectively isn’t always easy. If you’re still sharing content via email attachments, then you’re missing out on a lot of opportunities for improved communication and productivity—and so are your teammates and your customers.

For document sharing that’s swift, interactive, and engaging, only AirDeck has the key to delivering the goods.

1. Sharing Any Way You Want

Want to do away with clunky email attachments?

When you switch to AirDeck for document sharing, you can rid your outbox of the weight of processing large files. Instead, when you create content in AirDeck, you can effortlessly share your content to viewers with a simple, one-click link so they can watch it anytime and anywhere. Either share your content with a default link or create a custom link to specified permissions for extra security.

But links aren’t your only option.

With AirDeck, you get the flexibility to share your documents any way you want.

By connecting your email address to AirDeck, you can share your decks right from the platform and even write personalized messages to include in your deck’s thumbnail preview with a hyperlink automatically attached.

To make your content more public, you can also use AirDeck to take to social media. Just connect your social accounts and then quickly share your decks on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter with the click of a button. Or you can use your deck’s unique embed code to display it on any website, blog, or anywhere else you can paste a code, any way you want it.

2. Adding Narration to Any Document

With AirDeck, document sharing is about more than just emailing Word Docs or PDFs; it’s about elevating content with voice and video narration.

By adding your voice or video to any document or presentation, you can personalize your content, more easily explain complex ideas, and increase viewer engagement—and AirDeck is the fastest and easiest way to do it.

Simply record an audio clip and then overlay it on top of any of the 200+ file formats that AirDeck supports, e.g., PowerPoint, Word, Keynote, Google Sheets, etc. You can also upload existing audio files, add video files, or record audio and/or video content directly on each slide.

If you’re still just sharing content through email with an attachment, you’re missing out on the opportunity to surprise, delight, and truly engage with your viewers. Adding audio and/or video narration to any document helps you create an instant connection so you can grab a hold of (and keep) your viewers’ attention.

3. Realizing On-Demand Access

With most document sharing, something is always missing.

Consider: You want to share your content with a personalized, powerful punch, so you schedule Zoom meetings for you and your audience. But this takes time away from you and your viewers—and scheduling across many different calendars can be an insurmountable task all on its own.

So instead, you opt to send your content via email. Simple and efficient, right? Except it lacks that personal connection that’s key to both engaging your viewers and delivering your message.

AirDeck does it both.

Because you can create content that’s vibrant, dynamic, and engaging with audio and/or video narrations and then deliver that content with a simple link, you can take advantage of efficient document sharing without sacrificing personal connection.

You can create and send the document whenever it’s convenient for you, and your viewers can click and watch whenever it’s convenient for them. It’s a win-win.

4. Editing After Send

Successful document sharing doesn’t end after you hit send—at least not with AirDeck. Even after sending off a file to your viewers (whether it’s five viewers or 500), you can rest easy knowing you can continue to make changes behind the scenes.

Imagine: You create your perfect onboarding presentation. You hit send. And then—oh, no. You realize you’ve just sent a PowerPoint deck to two dozen new customers with old company messaging left on slide four.

With a standard PowerPoint presentation sent via email, there’s nothing you can do—unless you want to send a clumsy follow-up email with a new slide deck imploring your customers, “Sorry, please disregard my first email and use this one.”

Sure, it’s doable. But it’s awkward, messy, and requires both you and your customers to take extra steps. This document-sharing faux pas is yesterday’s problem when you share with AirDeck. Because your content is living, breathing, and accessible in real-time, you can always jump back in and make edits—even after you’ve shared the link with viewers.

5. Tracking Every View

With AirDeck, document sharing isn’t just a one-way message. It’s a true back-and-forth exchange whereby you can gain powerful insight into viewers’ activity from their very first click.

AirDeck allows you to track every second of every view in real-time, delivering in-depth analytics for every document you share. For example, you can see exactly how your viewers engage with your content, from when they opened the document to how many times they viewed it to where they clicked, and more.

By tracking individual views with slide-by-slide analytics, you can collect valuable data from every document you share and then leverage that data to keep improving your content over time.

AirDeck takes standard document sharing and brings it to the next level with data and analytics to make you (and your content) smarter.

If you’re missing out on AirDeck, then you’re missing out on modern opportunities to connect with your audience. Schedule a demo to learn more about document sharing with AirDeck.
