DocSend is taking the next step in its mission to transform the world’s sales content into business assets with the launch of support for all content types across the platform.
And that’s not just documents – it’s everything, including spreadsheets and web content that lives at a URL.
Why Supporting the Entire Sales Content Ecosystem Matters
The modern sales process thrives on content. Product overviews, case studies, proposals, videos, blog posts, spreadsheets – they all play a pivotal role in fueling conversations with prospects.
And buyers like it that way: Forrester research suggests that 76% of buyers choose vendors with whom they can have smart conversations.
Yet, many marketing and sales organizations struggle to leverage sales content to drive the conversations that matter to prospects. Sales content lives in too many places, in too many different formats, and performance data is scarce.
With the latest update from DocSend, we’ve super-charged Spaces, one of our most popular features – and our entire platform – with the ability to add spreadsheets, web content, and more.
Best of all, you’ll get the analytics you’ve come to expect from DocSend, so you can see how your entire account engages with your content and have more of the smart conversations that actually close deals.
Transform Your Sales Content Into Business Assets
Announcing Excel support for all users
Excel file support is available for all DocSend users, no matter what plan you’re on. Excel files are download-only, meaning they won’t be viewable directly in DocSend. Recipients will need to download the file to see it.
Everything else works exactly the same way. You can set custom link permissions, and you’ll get real-time notifications and the same robust analytics on visits, downloads, and usage.
Find out how to use this new functionality, and get started right away.
This is what your visitors will see when you share a DocSend link to an Excel file.
Introducing new content types for Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise
Along with support for Excel files, users on DocSend Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise can also add seven additional content types to DocSend. Now, you can track everything that moves deals forward, with just one source of truth.
Like with Excel files, all of these content types – with the exception of web content – are download-only. Visitors will need to download the content you’ve shared to view it.
Not to worry, you’ll still get the same robust content analytics on visits, downloads, and usage. And, for all content types, you’ll be able to set custom permissions.
The newly supported file types include:
- Web content (Think anything that starts with “http”!)
- Video (.avi, .mov, .mp4, .mpg, .qt)
- Audio (.aac, .aiff, .alac, .flac, .mp3, .ogg, .pcm, .wav, .wma)
- Images (.bmp, .gif, .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .svg, .tiff, .webm)
- Text (.rtf, .txt)
- Archive (.7z, .rar, .tar.bz2, .tar.gz, .zip, .zipx)
- Spreadsheets ( .xls(x), .csv, .numbers, .ods, .xlr)
When you add web content, you’ll be prompted to specify the URL and provide a name for your link.
This what you’ll see internally when you upload a download-only content type.
