1. Course introduction.: Hello, everybody. And welcome to how to build a one page sales sheet with no previous graphic design experience. My name is Jason Trueblood, and I'm gonna be walking you through this course so a little bit about what we're gonna be learning in this course, we're gonna be taking a blank sheet of paper or blank screen, so to speak. And we're gonna be turning it into a valuable piece of sales collateral that will help you guys convert more prospects. That'll help get your business propositions across. It'll just help describe your product in a more efficient and more professional manner. Eso We're gonna make a really basic sale sheet, and it's gonna be 8.5 by 11 the same size as a ah printable white piece of copy paper. Some people call these leave leave behinds or sales collateral or sale sheet. They go by many different names, but a lot of sales people use them during the entry level stages of the sales process or the marketing process to introduce their concept or their product of their service to a potential client. A lot of people, you know, for better or worse, higher graphic designers to this and through through necessity. Really, I've taught myself these skills on I want to Pass them on to you because I found them to be super valuable. They've saved me a ton of money and a ton of time over the years, just in the flexibility to design what I want. What I think prospects want to see and then gives me a lot of flexibility with editing down the road. If there's something I want to change or something I want to improve, it helps me do that amore efficient, cost effective manner on. And I want to pass those same skills on to you so that you guys can get out there and you can create thes Aziz. Many as you want as much as you want you can make is many edits as you want, and you don't have to go hire a graphic designer to do it. So let's get started. So a little bit of background about myself. I've been a freelance presentation designer for the last two years. I've been designing sale sheets and marketing collateral and business presentations for all different kinds of businesses and start ups and non profits for the last five years. I love using Google sides. It's like my favorite tool to use for building pretty much anything when it comes to sales or marketing collateral. And it's definitely my favorite. When we're talking about sales collateral, it's really easy to send people to really easy to manipulate. It's really easy to collaborate with your team on, and it's just a super slick tool to help get the finished product out the door sooner. 2. Creating your sales sheet header: Ah, a lot of people think that Google sides is just for building presentations, and that's just it's just not true. There's a lot of things you can do with this, including building these sales sheets and building these marketing these pieces of marketing collateral. It's a super handy tool when you're just getting started and you want a lot of flexibility and in what you're designing. So to get started, you need to have G suite. You need to have the ability to long in and pull up Google sides. Once you're in your email account in the top right corner, there's a square with a bunch of other little squares inside of that. If you click that little icon, it's right to the left of your account icon. If you click those square with a bunch of other little squares inside of it, it will pop down a list of tons of different Google products that they have. Go ahead and click the yellow icon that says slides, and you'll see the screen that you now see on my screen now, and that's just how you get into slides and start playing around with it. First thing we're gonna do is we're gonna title our our piece of sales collateral. So we're just gonna keep it simple and title it sales collapse crankiness bow cool that URL There we go. Sales collateral That's the title. It's in the top left corner. So now that we have our title hope they're in the top left corner we're gonna get our page set up so we don't need this click to add title portions. You can select that and delete it. We don't need this click to add subtitle portions. We can go ahead and click and delete it. The themes on the right hand side here we're not gonna need either. So you can click the X in the top right corner, get rid of those. And now we're gonna go over here to the top left corner and click file. They're gonna come down here to page set up, and it's gonna ask us if we want standard widescreen or another widescreen option. We're actually gonna go with custom. And for the custom, we wanted to be 8.5 by 11 inches, which makes it the same size as a piece of printer paper, which is is what we're going for. Now that we have our page set up, we're gonna want to think about a couple different things we're gonna want to consider how we want to lay out the page, how much white space we have, what are our most valuable propositions that we want to get across And then, well, what do we kind of want the wrap up to be? What do we want our footer to look like? So, for this particular example, we want kind of a flashy, nice, clean image. Look on the on the header. We want a little bit of Ah ah, one statement like like a power statement about the brand right to the right of it. Then we're gonna probably put some value props and right below that and then probably something else about the business. But let's just dive in and get started. So to make our header, there's a bunch of different things that you can do. So if you go over to the quick action bar on the top part of your screen and click shape, you can pick a shape, a lot of headers. You can just keep it simple if you select the rectangle and, you know, drag it across like this. And let's just say you want to make it a blue header. You know, you can do something simple like that. You can move it up to the top. That's a pretty simple header. You could put text inside of it. You could add a Nikon over to the right hand side. You do a lot of different things with this. That's just how you can make a really simple header. And, for example, if you wanted toe put some text in that header, putting hair like this is the header just for example, Sake just changed fund, you know, so we could add at a really simple header in hair if we if we wanted Teoh on and leave it like that. But we're actually going to do something a little bit different, but this is an option if you're if you're trying to do something quick and you want to keep it simple, it's a quick and easy way to put a nice professional header on your sales sheet. But like I said, we're going to something little different. I'm actually gonna delete both of these and we can get started on our header that we want. So now getting started with the header that we're actually gonna target for this. We're gonna go back up to shape and we're gonna do a rectangle, and we're gonna start about right here on the top part of the screen, and we're dragon over about 1/3 of the way on the screen. And for right now, we're not gonna worry about the color of the of the rectangle will come back, and we'll edit that later. And so now that we have this in here, we're gonna select it. We're gonna go with control, see, and then control V. It will duplicate the exact same rectangle. It's the exact same size, exact same color, exact same everything. So we want to take that one. We want to find a place where it looks pretty good, and then we want to drag it across the screen. Actually, we don't want to make it go all the way. Change my mind. So we wanted right there. Perfect. So this first rectangle that we made, we're gonna go in and we're gonna change the color, and we want to make that on a gray in the 1st 1 we want to make black actually won't make it a little lighter. That's a little too black. So depending on what your brand colors are in which your logo is, you can change these. All different kinds of colors mean, Say, say your logo is like a blue. You can come in here to the fill icon. You can come down here to custom, and then you can enter the hex code of whatever color that you want and it'll it'll automatically update it. And then once it's in there, once it's in the system, you can come back to the fill icon, and it will be down here under custom already pre loaded so you can continuously use it over and over and over again. But for this, we're just gonna keep it simple and go with a gray and black. Just keep it real, real simple. We're actually gonna make this a little bit smaller, and they were gonna move both these up a little bit, so we have a little bit of room. There we go. All right, so we have our header where we want. We think it looks pretty good. We're gonna do something a little bit. Ah, a little bit extra on it. So if we select the first gray box that we created and we hold down control and we select the second great box, you can right click on those and going down to the bottom to format options, select format options and then over on the right hand side, you're going to see a little check box here that says drop shadow. We're gonna want to go ahead and select drop shadow. It's getting out a little bit of a drop shadow to both of those boxes. It makes it pop off the screen a little bit. Mawr makes it look a little bit more professional, a little bit more clean. So now that we have our header in, we're going to insert a logo. So if you come up to the top, the fourth option over is insert. So we're gonna wanna go insert of image upload from computer. All right, so now that we have the logo that we want, we can select it and open it into our presentation, and now we're gonna shrink it down and we're gonna put ride up here in our header boom. It could be a smidge bigger. There's our logo right up there in the header, and that's pretty much wraps up our header. We're keeping it really simple for this example. But simple is always clean. Simple is always professional, and keeping things really simple and really clean and really professional helps get your businesses point across much faster. It helps people read it easier. It helps people's eyes go to the correct spots to see the right value props, keeping it simple and not over designing something is really, really key to getting your sales in your marketing collateral, seen by a lot of people and getting a lot of prospects to engage with it. So now that we have our hetero wrapped up, it's time to add that power statement that we're talking about. This could be a mission statement or any one liner that you think sums up your business in just one sentence as few words as possible and portrays the best vision of your business to your prospect. And since we left some white space over here on the right part of our page next to our logo , we're gonna put that statement ride over here, we're gonna try to keep it. Just so it's all clean and in kind of a block format Were to try to keep it about the same height as our ah is our header rectangle there, Sanel. We added a text box which have a text box here. So up in the top action bar, there's a little T with a square around it, and if you hover over it, it will say text box, you're gonna want to click that. And if you come over here and then drag it at the same height as your header rectangle, it'll insert a text box. So we're just gonna put, you know, our company was put some random copying here. So now that we have some basic copy in there is our is our mission statement or are one liner this isn't the right font. So what we're gonna do is going to come up here to the font right now. It's in the aerial fund. We're gonna select the drop down, and we're gonna change it to a font called Poppins. Great. So we switched it over, and now it's a little small so we want to blow it up a little bit. Currently, it's 14.5, but we want to make it a little bit bigger. So we're gonna kick it up to 18 point font. Remove this over a little bit. And so now we see how that's about the right fallen size that we want. But it's kind of stacked a little weird and its form out of the little weird. There's a couple of big words in there that cause it to do that. And so what we want to do now that this is it's not form out of the way we want is we're in a select our logo. We're gonna select the black rectangle behind it and hold control while doing that. Then we're gonna tap it over a little bit with the with the left arrow. So if we tap it over a little bit, it still looks good. So is that kind of same design look that we're going for, but it gives us a little bit more room over here. This is just one example how you can take your initial design and play with a little bit to get toe look the way you want it to look. And so this this mission statement over here on the right hand side is still a little wonky . We never want to leave just one word out there all by his lonesome eso. What we want to do is we will take this from an 18 point font and we're gonna come up here and manually Inter 16 point font. So it's a little bit smaller. Then we're just gonna drag this down. So it's in the dead center of that rectangle a little bit further, further. And there we have our header or logo on our header. Our value statement off to the right hand side of that. And next up, we're gonna add a couple more graphics to come or value props, and we're gonna start peace in this thing together. 3. Showing your company's value: way have our value statement up in the top right corner, and we have our header in. We have our logo in. We're ready to add our three key value props. Always recommend going with three value prompts because it's just enough to seem like your company has a ton to offer, and it's just few enough towards really digestible for whoever is looking at it. It's one thing a lot of people make the mistake of when they're developing sales and marketing. Collateral is they want to overwhelm the client because they're so excited about their business. And they're so excited about their product offering that they want to overwhelm the client and they want to throw away too much information, Adam. And that's just bad idea overwhelms the client. They don't know what to focus on. They don't know what what I mean, Honestly, they may not even read it because it might be so overwhelming. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna focus just on three key value props. We're gonna make him really simple and really clean, and we're gonna make it flow really well. So let's dive in. So since we used rectangle gray and black rectangle appear at the top. We're going to stick with that same kind of design designed theme like the hard edges, the squares, the rectangles. So we're gonna go back up here to the quick action bar and select shape. We're gonna come down, and we're gonna select rectangle, and we want squares. So if you were just draw out here, you could make whatever you wanted as big A is Why does it as you wanted and as tall as you wanted, but we wanted to be squares. So once you click and you're dragging it around, if you hold down, shift it on Lee scales proportionately So then you get your perfect square. So we're gonna make a square about that big, takes about 1/4 of the page, and we're gonna move it over here, and we're not gonna worry about colors right now. We're gonna select that square, we're gonna hit control C and in control V again. Perfect. That's exactly what we wanted. It automatically places it down into the right, a even amount. So it looks like a stacked piece of paper almost. And that's kind of the look that we're going for in this particular piece. So if you select the first rectangle we created and then hold control in select the second rectangle we created and then hit control C and then control V and in control C and Control V, you end up with three of the exact same red tails. See? So now, since we copied since we created one and then copied and then pasted it twice over, we have the exact same rectangle or squares, I guess in this case, and we can place him in the exact same place that they're even across the screen, that's not overly even. So let's adjust that we have red lines going to show you it's in the middle, but it's in the middle of the wrong one area. So now that we have are three rectangles in here, those are gonna be are three value props. So the back the back correct tangled. First when we created over here, we're gonna want to select that, But we don't really like the outlines. We're gonna go over here to outline its right or border color, as is what it's officially called, but outline and we're gonna go transparent and We're going to do that for all three of these rectangles. Transparent. Select the rectangle outlined. Transparent. Great. Here we go. And we don't really like the outline for the 1st 1 So we're gonna come up here. It's like we're going to select the the outermost rectangle, and we're gonna come up here to transparent and we're gonna change the color to the black. The same black is the header. They were to change the back rectangle to the same grey as what's right behind the header. Stay on theme. We want to use the same colors, even gray and black art. Your brand colors that obviously totally fine. Um, but just try to use, you know, if you're using blues, try to use a lot of blues. If you're using reds, try to use a lot of reds. Just stay on brand with whatever it is that you're doing in these And that way you can ensure it'll look really clean and really professional when you are done. So there we go. We have are three value props ready to put some information in. So let's throw some information in them. So now that we have the three squares that we want to put our value props in. We're gonna want to form at him a little bit before we put any info in them. They're a little bit close to the header. So what we can do is we in select off the screen and then dragged this blue rectangle across the screen and it's gonna select all six of those squares and we just tap it down with the down. There are a couple of times until we feel like the spacing is good, I think that's good. So the first thing we're gonna want to do is come up to the quick action bar and select text box and we're gonna come down here to the first square, and we're gonna drag it into that first square until it's about the same on every side. So now that we have our text box in, we're gonna want add some text. So our first value prop is Let's just say for this example, creative designs. That's our first value brought. But since it's black copy, it doesn't show up in the Black Square Very well. It's What we want to do is we want to highlight all the copy and we're gonna change the phone while we're at it. And we're gonna change it from aerial to Poppins because that's what we used up top as well . So we want to keep all the brand and all the branding the same on the color is the same. Well, the funds the same. All the front waits the same. Just want to keep it looking all really consistent throughout what we're doing. So once we've selected the text and we've changed the font, we want to bump it up to so 18 looks, It's little small. That's a big We're actually gonna manually enter 20 point font for these, and then we're gonna want to center it in the page. And then if you come over here to lying or ah, excuse me if you clicked off If you come over here to a line, see this arrow with the liar? These two arrows with line in the middle of them that's gonna push the taxed vertically aligned. So it'll be in the If you think about the text box vertically. The text will didn't be in the center of that vertical alignment. So we're gonna want to do that so it pushes it to the center of that square. And then we want to come up here to text color when we're select that they were to select White so it comes off the screen a little bit better. And there we go. So now we have get this to a line. Now we have our first value prop in our in a rectangle, and there's you could create a tax box and do all the formatting for another two squares. If you wanted another to value props or here's a quick little shortcut. We select the blue box around the text box that you just created, and then you hit control C and then control V. It's gonna populate the exact same text box over again. And when you drag it over to the 2nd 1 you see his red line in the center of the screen that's going to tell you that it's aligned with the first text box that you created. So we're gonna drop that right on in there. And now they're the exact same height there in the middle of the square, which is great s So what? We're gonna want to do is hit control V again. It's gonna populate us. Another same text box. The red line shows us it's in the middle and were dropped in there. But obviously we don't want three value props that are the same. But since this just saves us a little bit of time, we don't wanna do the formatting and change the font over and over and over again. So that was, Ah, time saving maneuver. And now we can highlight the taxed back it off, and then we can enter something else like fantastic, sir Service. So that will be our second value prop that we have. So let's go ahead and make our third. We're gonna put we're gonna put in here competitive pricing. So there are three key value prompts for this specific example. We've got our squares, we've got our fonts. All the same, we've got our text color where it pops off the screen really nicely. It's all on Brand. And so now we're gonna go into breaking down each value prop a little bit more and showing the prospect what we mean by creative designs or fantastic service. And we're just gonna be going a little bit more in detail about each and every one of them . So we have our value props in there already to go. So under those value problems, we're just gonna want to talk a little bit about each one of them so that the prospect can understand what we mean by creative designs or fantastic service or competitive pricing just so they can get a better feel for what we're talking about, what we mean and how this company can best serve them. So up in the quick action bar, we're going to select text box again and we're gonna come down and on the left hand side of that back gray square, we're gonna start the rectangle and we're gonna drag it down. We want about that much text. Then we're gonna come up here and change it to Poppins, and we'll leave it at 14.5 for now. But now we're just going to enter a bunch of a bunch of text into here, talking about how are designs air creative and how people love him. You know, we have our first little bit of copy entered under creative designs. We can see it's kind of form out of a little bit weird. It's left justified for this example. We want to center, justify it just so it looks like it's coming down in, like, a pillar format. Um, so we're gonna go up here to a line and we're going to select center, and then it centers it right under the rectangle. So now that we have that one completed, we're gonna select the blue outline again and we're gonna hit control C and Control V and Control Seeing Control V. So we've created two additional blocks of copy, and we're just gonna move them over to these other to make sure these air centered properly to these other two value props. And that way, we don't have to reformat, Um, we don't have to do anything extra. We've already done the work on the 1st 1 So we can just copy all the work that we've done in the 1st 1 over the 2nd 1 and then the 3rd 1 And just like what we did on the value prop squares themselves will select the text in them and will inter ah smother text. So there have added a little bit of text to the fantastic service value prop. And now we're gonna add a little bit of final text over here to the competitive pricing. So there we've added a little bit of copy to all of all of the three value props. And now what we're gonna do is we're gonna go in and just do some quick formatting. Since the fantastic service doesn't have as much copy is the competitive pricing or the creative designs what we can do, that no one will ever notice these air different wits. But we can take the competitive pricing and make it a little bit wider, and that will take the creative designs. And we're gonna make this text box a little bit wider, too. And what that does is it shrinks down the overall the lines and makes it seem like it's a little bit more cohesive and a little bit more consistent. And, you know, honestly, just by looking at that at a glance, you'll never be able to tell that those were different wits. So it's It's a fun little trick to make him look a little bit more consistent and cohesive without showing that it's a little bit wonky. Uh, So there you have it. There's their value. Props, There's the copy. Now it's ready to move on to the next next part of this sales piece. 4. Creating a call to action : way have our value props all put in. It's time to work on the next section of this in the next section Weren't do something a little bit different than what we've done above. It's just gonna help break up the page a little bit better. Help with the readability of it, help with creating a little bit more white space. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna take this gray box that we made in our header. It's the right color that we want. It's a rectangle. This will just save us a little bit of time. We're gonna hit control C and we're gonna hit Control V and then we're gonna bring it down here right under these text box and drag it up a little bit and we're enjoying all the way across the page. Here we go. So what that's gonna do is we're gonna put a little text in that eyes what we're gonna do, and once we put a little text and it's gonna help break up the page so it's gonna kind of say, All right, here's our header. Here's our logo. Here's a little bit about the company. Here's three value propositions most people read left or right. So here's Here's our creative designs. Here's our fantastic service. Here's our competitive pricing, and then when you move down the screen with your eyes, it's going to draw the reader to one very specific, very deliberate line that's going to be called out because of the back the gray box. It kind of separates it from the rest of the page while kind of segmenting out different parts of the page. It helps with readability. Like I said, helps keep it a little bit clean. And it also helps call out specific portions of what you're designing and what you want people to see. That's what we're gonna do is we're gonna come up to the action bar again. We're gonna select text Box and we're gonna come down here and we're gonna insert a text box into this great box here. Perfect it. We're in ads and text and we'll see. What do I want to say here? So for this example, we're going to say we can't wait to hear about your project, and that's really just related to what we're gonna talk about under it, and I'll get to that amendment in a minute. But right now we want to change the font to Poppins like we use in everything else. And then we want to kick this up again. To this time, we want to use 24.5 because we want to call out a little bit. We wanted Teoh to stand out from the rest of the page. We want people to see it once they're done reading what is above and we want this to be in the center of the page right now, it's on the left hand side. And that's just a consistency thing, since we're doing a lot of things that air center justified right above it, it makes a lot of sense toe have it center justified as well. We're gonna pop, appear to the action bar, and we're gonna go to a line and we're gonna align it to the center. And they were to come over here to font color, and we're gonna make that font color white Boom. There we go. And so now that we have this in here under it, we're gonna add a block of text that's going to talk about you know what our process Looks like how we engage with clients what the next steps look like if someone wants to work with us and we're gonna get into that right now. So we're gonna come up here to the action bar and we're in a select text box again. And actually, it's to do a short cut. So let's click this creative ah, creative designs text box and we're gonna click the blue outline. We're gonna click control, see, and then control V again. And since that's the same font size in the same font that we want to use down here, we are just gonna drag it across, and then we're going to We're gonna actually left justify this and then we're gonna select all the copy, and we're gonna change it to have to manually put in 16 point font. Actually, we want to make that a little bit bigger, make 18 point for a little bit more legible than we want to select the text and back it off and put our own text in it. So now that we've inserted the copy that we want, this is what we're gonna call our call to action. We're gonna tell the prospect a little bit about what the next steps are, which in this particular case is ah is a free initial design like discovery meeting that we do with all clients. And we're gonna say connect with us and set up your free meeting today. That's our call to action in the sheet. We showed the client what the value props are. We showed him our brand. We told him a little bit about our company, and now we wanna have ah call to action to get them to take action, reach out to us and do something about it. So that's the kind of copy that we added in there. And as people read it, it's top bottom left to right. So we wanted to tell them a little bit about our companies so they had enough information to act if they chose. We don't want to put the call to action at the beginning, because a lot of times prospects don't have enough information to know if they want to act yet or not. So we wanted to give the client a little bit of information and then give him the called action later on in the sheet. So now that we have our call to action in there and there's let me just say there's a ton of different ways to write this Honestly, this is probably not the most graceful, but for this example, it works, You know, connect with us today. Get your free value, Add today. Whatever it is, you can make up your own called action, depending on your brand and your offering and what your what? Your goal. You're what you're in Goal is. So now we want to create our footer. Um, and actually, what we're gonna do is we're just gonna create this. We're going to select this rectangle here in the center of the page if it'll let me actually gonna have to zoom in for this. So we selected the gray rectangle that we want to copy, and then we're gonna hit control and hold it, and we're gonna select the text in the middle, and we're gonna hit control C and then control V. So we've copied this successfully. We want to grab the rectangle and the text in it, and we want to drag it all the way down to the bottom of the page, and this is gonna be our footer. And there it is. It's dead. Center in the middle of the page is exactly what we want. This is the right font, but it's a little bit Biggs. We're gonna push it down, 18 point font, and then we're going to We want in the center of that gray rectangle. So we're gonna come back up here to a line, and we're going to put it in the middle. And this is where we're gonna put our contact information and a contact person. So for this, we're just going to use my name. Jesus, actually, we're gonna put questions, Jason. True blood. I'm gonna put info, some email address, Jason blood dot com. So once we serve the prospect with their with the call to action, we want him to set up a meeting with our design team to go over their brand and what they're looking for. Then we need to give him a way to contact us. A way to reach out to us. Way to connect. So this is what the footers great for is we give them a place to do that. So a lot of times I put questions. Sometimes it's actually for this example. Let's not put it so put a contact person name. We'll add a little bit of spacing in between the email address and it's all in the center of the page and we're going to zoom back out so you can see the whole thing. And then we have our rough sales sheet right there. There's a couple other things that we're gonna do to it before we're finished up here. And this gives you a pretty good idea of how to put one of these together, how to put the frame work together. Like I said, we're gonna do a couple other little tweaks to make this thing really pop. But this is like the basic framework of how we can do it in Google Slides. We've got our logo are header. Got a little mission statement to the right of the header we've got are three value props going from left to right. We've got a nice little call out for a brand. We've got a call to action and we have contact info there at the bottom. So let's dive into a couple little tweaks that weaken Dio to make this thing really come off the page. 5. Review and touch up: in reviewing a sale sheet like this, there's a there's a couple of things that way. Want to look at first things first, we want to make sure that all the fonts the same, it really looks poorly on a company when you send out a piece of sales collateral or piece of marketing collateral where the fonts are different or the fun you know, just doesn't match up. So for this, how we can check all of that is we can select the text box and then up here in about the center of the screen centre left of the screen under font, it'll say Poppins. So this one, all of this is the same font. All the value props looked like the same font. It never hurts to double check these things. Sometimes there's two fonts that are a little bit different, but look the same on the surface. So we're gonna go down here. We select the boxes, and once you select the text boxes, it'll show you immediately if you have the right font or not. If it was a different font, it would tell you up in the font section. There it looks like all of this is Poppins. That's great. So another thing that we want to review is we want to make sure that we have all of our colors down. So this is a gray. It's a matching gray. All the greys look the same. All the blacks look the same. That's another little pro of doing the copy and paste method and then manipulating it from there is you never have to question if the boxes or the rectangles are the same color. If you create one and it's the right color and then you copied a bunch of times and edit it from there, then you know it's always the right color. But if you select the color every single time, it leaves a little bit more room for error and, you know leaves it up for possibly, you know, ah, user error situation that nobody nobody likes to deal with. We've done a quick review of our presentation. We're gonna do something to add a little bit of flair to it. Help help it flow a little bit better. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna look at the value prop section. They all kind of run together a little bit. All the Texas is kind of close together. Not not too close, though. So we're going to zoom in an ad, a dividing line just to break up the spacing of these boxes a little bit. So we're gonna come appear to the action bar, and we're gonna select the line option, and we're gonna come down here to the text box, and we want it roughly the same height as the text box. So we're going to click, and we're gonna hold down shift so it keeps it at a 90 degree angle and they're gonna come down to roughly the bottom of the text box, and that will drop a line in there. And if you come up here at the top action bar to line color and select that, we want it to be kind of a light gray to stay on theme, not be overwhelming, not dominate the text, nothing like that. And then we wanna control C Control V and we're gonna move that over to the other section. Aziz. Well, so that way ever to dividing lines. And if we zoom out, you can see them really subtle, but helps break up the text and helps let people know that. Wow. Okay, that tax that belongs to that creative design section it hopes, like, compartmentalize your designs a little bit more, helps with the readability, helps in the flow. Just helps. Kind of bring it all together for people. Another thing we're gonna do is we're gonna zoom in on this page divider here, and we're gonna select this rectangle, and we're gonna copy or ah, excuse me. We're gonna right click on it. We're gonna go to format options. They're gonna hit this little arrow next to drop shadow, and there's only a drop shadow on it. But we want the angle. Uh, let's see. It's going hard to see with the angle to be straight down. We don't want it to be the decider to the top. It all you want to be. So we want this drop shadow to be 90 degrees and we want to be straight down, and we want to pull the distance in a little bit. What about there? And then we take transparency ups. It's kind of fame, distance and drop shadows, or one of those things that you just need to play with a bunch before you get it right. See, there it adds a little flair to it. Makes it look a little bit more professional, makes it pop off the screen, but it takes a little bit of toying with. So now that we've done our review of our piece of sales collateral, we've added a couple little design elements to make it look a little bit better. Make it pop off the screen a little bit more. Now we're ready to look into the sharing aspect of Google slides and the exporting aspect. So if we go up here to file, it's gonna make a drop down appear and then you're gonna go to download as a lot of times I designed them in gruel slides, and I export him as a Pdf to share with someone. That seems to be the best way to go about it since since you don't want your prospect to be able to edit your sales collateral. So if he downloads a pdf and then save it into a file on your computer, you can attach it in A. You can attach it in an email and send it to all of your prospects or one targeted prospect or whatever you can also download it is a J. Paige European G. If you would like if you prefer to edit off line on a power point, you can certainly download it and do it that way as well. But that's that's really downloading. Another thing that that Google really has down is this quick email's attachment. It's really quick if you want to send it to a team member or another sales person on your team to use or whatever. It makes it really easy to share across the team. I would never recommend emailing this as an attachment to a prospect just because again, you don't want him to be able to edit their sales collateral the best way or at your sales collateral. That is the best way to go about this is to download as a PdF and then attach it and individual emails and then just reference the piece of collateral or the sales sheet in your email. So that's that's exporting sharing. If you look in this yellow button in the top right corner and you select out that sharing, you can send it to one specific person you consider it to a group of people, you can do a bunch of different things with that here. This little drop down on the right hand side is pretty much saying this person can edit. This person can comment this person convert you it. One thing to take note of when you're sharing it with people through this. This little portal here is if they don't have the same email addresses you. For example, if that's not, let's let's use Jason Trueblood dot com, for example, if they don't have a at Jason trouble dot com email address and it's going to request permission, and that never looks great when you're talking about prospects and potential clients. So here's how you get around that. So if you click the share a bowl link icon in the top right corner of this window, you can select different options. So it says off. Only specific people can access this. We want to turn that, Yeah, we want to turn that off. Then we want to copy the link, and then we can send it to whomever we like, and they don't have to request access from it from us. You can do a couple other different things. You can select Mawr so public on the Web or anyone with link. This is a good anyone with link is typically what I check click save, and you can send it to whomever you'd like from there, so that sharing sharing awesome because you can collaborate with your team, you can easily download it on Senator Prospect. You can add comments or get feedback from your team. It's a really handy tool to get quick and instant reviews and feedback from your team and really wrap up this project. Snap. We covered sharing and exporting your sales sheet that wraps up our course on how to create a piece of sales collateral with no prior design experience needed.
