So you want a brochure or a document that your customers can easily print out to your website. There are lots of different programs and ways to create PDF documents but I’m going to share with you one that incredibly easy to use and best of all, it is free.
Change your habits and don’t begin by creating the document in Word. Instead go to OpenOffice.org and download Open Office for free. It is very much like Microsoft Office and is similar to use. But there are some differences.
Once you have the program installed, open it and choose Text document. It will open a word processor program called Writer. It’s very similar to Word so you should find it easy to use. Just as in word, you can add images or screen shots to the document. And you can create links that work.
Now comes the best part. To convert your document into a PDF, all you have to do is click that little PDF button at the top of the screen. You’ll be asked for a file name. Name the document and click “save”.
Don’t forget to save your original “writer” document as well. In case you ever want to make changes, you can make them in the original document and then convert it into a pdf as many times as you want to.
Try it. It’s easy. And what could be better than FREE.
