Fileboard – See Which Slides Are Selling

Fileboard is a web-based application that salespeople can use to gain insight into the effectiveness of their online presentations. Rather than sitting back and waiting for potential leads to get in touch via email, Fileboard encourages its users to be proactive in their approach to online sales. The application sends out automatic email notifications whenever a deck has been opened, and lets its users know how much time their prospects spent on each slide.

Before you can start gathering analytics and measuring the effectiveness of your online sales materials, you need to start by uploading those materials to Fileboard. Login to your account, share a custom URL with prospects, and start giving your presentation. Your prospects won’t have to download any software or remember any special codes to see what you’ve put together, which is one of the ways that Fileboard separates itself from competitors in the marketplace. When your presentation is over, share your files with one simple click. This is when the real fun begins. Fileboard will automatically notify you when your deck has been opened, and the platform will track how long prospects spent checking out each slide. When it comes time to follow up, you’ll know exactly which topics piqued their interest, and you’ll be able to sell more effectively.

For businesses with CRM systems like Salesforce, Fileboard offers a number of advanced features. The application automatically logs all meeting details and notes into connected CRM systems. Users can also track analytics for their presentations and schedule live meetings from within a connected Salesforce account.
