Whenever we were sending PDF files through email, we didn't know who opened them, when and to whom they sent it on.
We didn't like that. That's why we started creating landing pages for our decks. And locked them behind a social login.
Now you can simply upload your PDF pitchdeck to your own secure landing page. And then just send out the link to it - clientname.yourcompany.com. Or create an investor page for your startup at investor.mystartup.com - fully branded with the Startup's cool logo and other details.
Potential leads or investors now can log in with their LinkedIn, Angellist or Facebook account, and can see the super-secret business area. And you get an email right away about this guy looking at your.. stuff
Wait a second, who would want to use their social login for that - investors and leads are not social at all! We thought so too at first, but 1500 investors and leads later, it doesn't seem that way. Who those investors are? That's none of our business, we just host the pages for our customers. Maybe some of the investors are their mothers ( yes )
So why would anybody need this weird page? Because finally it's possible to see what e.g. investors look at. We keep track of which slides people spend how much time on.
Also... clicking anywhere on the slides gives you instant feedback on specific areas. ( Which works great for team feedback while building the PDF in first place )
This is where it gets interesting - because we started using this feature to improve our own decks as well. And it starts to pivot to PR agencies, marketing and sales teams... anywhere where traditionally huge PDF files were sent around - we make those departments lifes easier.
Is it only PDFs? Nope. We connect their Google Sheets into it, to display nice graphs about your company's live-data; we add Google Maps to show off how many offices you might have, how many people you hired and where your customers are... and we show off the company updates in a facebook-like timeline... we turned 'just' pitches into full-fletched pitch areas.. ( see it for yourself on our demo.. demo.pitchxo.com - or my personal little space at markus.pitchxo.com )
But does it really work? All we know is that it helps our customers a lot. Some raised A LOT of money, others were finally able to send e.g. investors to one website instead of 10 different links. Others used us to pitch investors, and are still using us to update their ( now existing ) investors. But on the other hand, it really depends on the thing you are pitching, how you're pitching it and to whom.
We just try and get one thing out of your way : The headache of not knowing after you press the 'send' button.
So in short : Analytics for your PDF keep you on top of things. Social Login finally gets you rid of unsecure email & password logins for your secure content. And last but not least - Instant notifications let you know when somebody is interested in your stuff.
Besides that, it's branded with your company details - it becomes part of your company's online presence.
Markus and Team

Upload your presentation to a professional landing page, instead of sending out PDF in the dark. And what's more professional than your company's secure investor area at investor.yourcompany.com. Not raising money? Create a customer page at yourclient.yourcompany.com. They will feel special, and you'll have less pain by having one area for all your documents. No more weird tracking links to 3rd party websites which have nothing to do with your company.
We keep track for you which slides your leads spent their time on. This gives you greater insights in what works and what doesn't - and what your leads are specifically interested in. So if you're interested in tracking specific leads, or just want to have statistics on your PDF presentations - you'll have it with us.
Our background checks are not as extensive as what the NSA has to offer, but they will let you know right from the get-go about your leads. No more searching on Google, it's right there in your email.
Those beautiful presentations with charts don't make themselves. They take time for each update and proper styling. That's why we'd rather connect to your Google Sheet, and display your KPI charts beautifully! Present the latest data easily to your potential clients, investors and business partners!
We connect with over 300 systems, from CRMs to Mailing Lists and other tools. Would you like to collect the lead data yourself? No problem, WebHooks send everything your way as well.
