Make Your Life Easier: (Nearly) Instant PDF Conversion

Have you ever wanted to upload to your web site a report or examples of your work? Maybe a coupon for your customers to print out or your restaurant’s latest menu?

Have you ever spent too much time trying to figure out how to acquire and run Adobe Acrobat Distiller so you could make your own PDFs? Or maybe you don’t even know what I’m talking about when I ask you that question?

Take a look at the left bar of my blog for the widget labeled, “Biz Tool: Make a PDF.” Although it doesn’t fit perfectly into the Blogger layout, this tool is completely useable and indispensable for the small business owner.

The little gadget brings PDF conversion capability to your fingertips.

To use it, simply type your email into space that’s entitled, “Email,” and use the “Browse” button like you would on any Microsoft Windows Explorer navigation to find the document on your computer that you want to convert. After clicking “Convert and Send,” you’ll receive an email that has the newly created PDF as an attachment for you!

The conversion is done is in less than 30 seconds and works with any Word document (and probably any NotePad, WordPad, text file, or WordPerfect document—I haven’t tested those).
