Why digital media businesses use a proposal application instead of Microsoft Word
Many digital media still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their proposals. A previously created template is modified manually and then sent as a PDF. Sounds easy, but in practice this takes a lot of time, the chance of errors is high and you no longer have insight into your business proposal after sending.
With the use of a proposal application it has become a lot easier and better for entrepreneurs. You still use templates as a basis, but now you have a full content library in which you can search and reuse texts. The chance of errors is minimal due to smart automation. And after sending you can still adjust your business proposal and you will get insight when your customer views the proposal. The modern interactive presentation options make an impression and the option to digitally sign makes it very easy for a customer to agree.
The following blog will elaborate on how to make perfect proposals with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

Why smart software is important for businesses in the digital media sector
When it comes to sales and marketing, nothing is more important than making a good impression. You have to be able to show that you’re the right fit for the client, and this means you need to be organized and professional. And, if you want to win over your prospects, you need to wow them with a great design and clear, easy-to-read content. At the same time, you need to make sure that everything is professional and free of errors. Quoting and proposal software has revolutionized the way businesses handle sales documents. Instead of using a tedious Word document or even an Excel spreadsheet, companies are now able to use dedicated software to create quotes and proposals that are interactive, engaging, and full of great information.
Digital media is a general term for all kinds of digital information that can be stored electronically and represents a change from the traditional form of analog media, which is used in analogue form. In other words, we are talking about any digital storage medium. It can be either an object or a service that can be obtained online, via computer or mobile device. An example of digital media is MP3s (audio files) or videos on YouTube (video). An advantage of digital media is that it allows you to store a lot of information in a small amount of space. Digital files can be created, transferred and distributed via the Internet. Digital files are also easy to reproduce and store. This makes them suitable for large-scale use. The biggest disadvantage of digital media is that it is easy to copy, share and distribute illegally. This means that you can lose control over your content and possibly your intellectual property rights as well. Another disadvantage is that some digital media are easily corrupted and may be damaged by power failure or hardware failure. However, this is also true for other types of storage media, such as CDs and DVDs. For example, most photos and videos are now saved digitally rather than on film rolls. This has led to the development of professional photography, because it offers more freedom than analog photography and allows people to do things like edit pictures in Photoshop or create videos in iMovie. The opposite would be that many films have been saved digitally to prevent piracy and high production costs, so this technology has led to the development of new technologies like virtual reality (VR).
