Managing the Image Content Library

Introduction

Content libraries are used to help sales consultants add valuable content to their sales quotes. The objective of content libraries is to centralize the development of reusable content that would not normally be part of a Sales Quote Template.

For example, the administrator of the content libraries may provide a library of product specification PDF documents used in sales quotes to provide detailed product data for products being sold, or it may be valuable to provide complex content page layouts in PDF form to embed as part of sales quotes to create high impact content to impress clients.  Skilled graphic designers produce this type of PDF document. It is a valuable resource for sales consultants who are always looking to differentiate themselves against their competition.

The types are content libraries are:

  • Text
  • PDF
  • Video
  • Images
  • Spreadsheets
  • Products Catalogue

This user guide topic provides information to manage the Video Content Library.
