Sell the job with a great iPad presentation

No Wi-Fi, No Problem

I was presented with an interesting challenge from one of my website customers. Stu Thibodeau, is a small business owner, that provides a log home restoration service. When I built the Total Log Cabin Restoration website, Stu wanted to make sure it included his large gallery of images of his completed log home jobs, as well as videos that show off the process of restoring a log home. The finished website not only did it's job helping to create new leads, but it also becomes a helpful tool when out in the field providing new estimates. The presentation of image galleries and videos have become an important part of selling the job.

Using the iPad as a business tool, Stu is now able to have a great presentation on all his estimates. But what if there is no wi-fi internet access or the cell phone signal is to weak for an internet connection? You might think Stu has to give up his iPad presentation, but not true.

IPad has a great app called "Presenter". Presenter lets you upload the website files or html files to dropbox and then lets you download those files back to your iPad.
Now you can access your website or any presentation you wish to have that was created in html.

Presenter is an html reader, and anything you create in html can be viewed in the iPad browser. All working files must be together in one folder and that includes any video you wish to have in your presentation. You can not embed a YouTube or Vimeo video as you would on a website, because the url pathway is back to the original site.

For any video I want to include in the presentation, I use video-js. Video-js is a video player you embed into the html page. The video I use is in a MP4 format and will be in the same folder as the video player, (video-js).

Now Stu never has to worry about not being able to connect to the internet when it's time to sell a job, his presentation is always available.
