The secrets of using templates and how they save you hours

Often we open a new document and just start typing this can cause headaches down the line when we need to tidy it up to present to a client.

Most of us have had no format training on how to make the most out our software – How many times have you had to edit each individual heading or block of text ?

To make your life easier set up a couple of branded word templates so you can start with the correct formatting in place. Simply make global document changes whjen you need to update a style and ensure consistency across you communications.

I recommend that all my clients have a Portrait and a Landscape Microsoft Word Templates. ( we may also create a manual template, form templates etc…)

Before your jump into making a document here is a simple table for you to use when you are creating new documents or reviewing existing ones.
