If you’re a small business owner, you’re familiar with the problem: you’ve got a document, and you need to send it to a client or a contractor. But what’s the best way to do it? You’ve found yourself running to the post office to get there before the last pick-up, spending far too much money on a courier, or desperately sending files by email – only to find that the files don’t get there in time or bounce back without ever reaching the other’s inbox. This Wednesday, let us show you a better way to send files to your clients, vendors, or anyone that you work with. Our team will be giving a free webinar on how Adobe SendNow can help your small business save time and money. Join us:

Hope to see you there!
In the Adobe office, we really like cake. Chocolate, red velvet, raspberry-marzipan-coconut swirl… you name it, we’ll eat it. But with all these over-the-top flavors we’re often tempted by, it can be easy to forget that a basic chiffon can be exactly right: classic, simple, and elegant, without any distracting additions to detract from the satisfaction of a familiar flavor done well.
So here we are to write an open letter to our dear old favorite SendNow Basic plan: Dear friend, no, you won’t manage our finances or do our dry cleaning. But you need not be fancy to require proof of delivery and download, or to require sign-in for each file you send. Security, as far as we’re concerned, should be expected of any vanilla cake; you shouldn’t have to add chocolate chips and lemon custard just to protect your own documents.
Though you may be simple, we can still dress you up: you’re happy to don that professional look by allowing for personal branding, which is an amazing feat for such an easy-to-use service. For those who run a small business, the ability to apply a logo to your clean appearance makes you a worthy choice for sending files to clients and customers.
Not only do you look the part; you play the part by offering 5GB of storage capacity, 200 possible recipients for each file transaction, and an impressive 500 downloads per file. Show us any other basic cake that can do all that!
SendNow Basic, we’re proud to include you in our tiered offerings at Acrobat.com – and at only $9.99 each month, you’re not too far out of reach. Thank you for being our simple and elegant chiffon cake, and not a chocolate-banana-hazelnut-cream pie.
This week, let’s start out with a riddle: What’s better—easier, more effective—than sending your large files with SendNow, the file transfer service that’s always just a click or two away? Continue reading…
Almost a month ago, we announced some exciting new enhancements that were on the way for Adobe SendNow. Today, we’re happy to let you know that one installment of these planned enhancements has arrived!
Now, paid subscribers will be able to upload their own personal or company logo to their SendNow account to brand all correspondence from within the service—at no extra cost.
When you send that beautifully crafted (and 400 MB) proposal to a client, you can make sure that she knows it’s from you: just apply your logo to the notification email and the download page, ensuring that all of the interaction that she has with that file will be entirely seamless, and will reflect the polished and professional manner in which you always work. Why should sending a file restrict your style? These are your files; use your brand.
Ready to get started? Just sign into your account at SendNow and upload your logo with just a few clicks!
This week, some very exciting enhancements to Adobe SendNow were picked up on and featured by the incomparable Harry McCracken over on the Technologizer blog in an excellent summary post (thanks, Harry!). The Technologizer article also highlights a piece of the industry-leading SendNow service that we happen to care deeply about: that people can send 100 MB files using Adobe SendNow’s free plan (and 2 GB files with SendNow Basic and Plus subscriptions). We like to think that this is just common decency: allowing for truly large files (100 MB is not small!) to be sent free of charge is our (frankly superior) solution to a ubiquitous problem. While other services in the field may believe that 50 MB is generous enough, we happen not to agree. We want SendNow to be the best it can be—the best available, in fact—and that means giving you what you need from a file transfer service. These features are based directly on suggestions that we heard from all of you, and we’re very happy to be able to offer them.

Oh my, have we ever got a platter full of treats for you! We’ve been cooking up a storm in the back kitchens at Adobe SendNow; here’s your first look at what’s on the table. We’ll go into more detail later on, but we just can’t wait to announce what’s on the menu!
Okay, okay, we get it: you’ve learned the concept that makes Adobe SendNow so great. Choose a file, choose a recipient, send the file—all done, it was easy, never worked better or more quickly. It doesn’t take a super smartypants to master SendNow’s simple (and simply beautiful) interface, and it’s not exactly rocket science to see that it’s probably the smoothest and easiest way to send huge files from one place to another. But wait: SendNow’s behavior is more than interface-deep. Here, check out how to use SendNow to present your material (including all those audio and video files) to clients and colleagues, even when you’ve got multiple files to share or have to control the mode of presentation.
Just a little note to alert everyone to this rad article over on the Assistive Technology blog featuring the integration of Adobe SendNow and Adobe Acrobat X. The two are “perfect together” – but I’ll let the Assistive Tech article do the talking:
