The last thing I expected to be doing while exploring the pristine islands of the Bahamas was making brochures! After receiving an urgent email from my manager letting me know that he had not received my strategically sent communication before leaving the office I was stuck in a bad situation.
While searching for online brochure templates I came across a blog post that resonated with me about the hidden truths of free software on the web. The article resonated with me because the writer echoed my sentiments about how much time could be wasted finding an application that actually worked.
I’ve always used free software to get everything I needed done. I never thought twice about it, until the software that came with my computer expired at the precise moment I needed it most. Talk about disaster! I needed to create a beautiful, slick brochure for my presentation, and now I was stuck.
My co-worker and I had been using the same brochure development tool to create brochures for an office project for months. When her brochures starting receiving all the praise I couldn’t figure out what caused the shift. Then I realized she wasn’t making regular brochures using Word brochure templates at all.
