Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Sign
As the sole proprietor, it streamlined my workflow. It was used to confirm bookings with new and ongoing clients for photo sessions and event coverage. I used it to clearly state and reiterate deliverables and replicate content that was in a proposal or quote to a client. I am the only employee of my company and I'm responsible for all the management, so it helped with that.
- It looks and feels very official and professional.
- It was very easy for clients to use.
- I like the auto email confirmations that are sent.
- It was difficult to change how my name appeared to clients.
- There were parts of the confirmation emails that I wish were links to the documents.
- I wish it was faster to replicate commonly used document templates.
- I'm a very small business (sole proprietor) and I haven't been good about measuring ROI (although I know I could do better).
- However, the times that I could just drop in a pdf, apply some fields to fill/sign and send off to a client, and no changes were needed, it felt like good ROI.
- But, if I needed to go back and revise the contract, it felt clunky to have to start editing a new doc, make a pdf, and then reupload and re-do fields.
It was solid, but as I mentioned in the previous question, it felt clunky to have to go through so many steps to bring in a document. I wish that there was a built-in text editor (in the style of a Google Doc, and maybe incorporating some Adobe InDesign features) so that contracts could be drafted and edited within the Adobe Sign platform. That would streamline my workflow a lot.
I'd communicate with a client or lead, draft a proposal, possibly have further discussion with the lead, and once I believed that we were on the same page, I would combine the relevant elements of my proposal into my contract template and send it to the client for review and execution. If there were ever questions about deliverables, rates, due dates, or anything else, the client or I could easily refer back to the executed document.

I also compared Adobe Sign to Shoot Proof and I found that Adobe Sign has a more professional look and feel to it. I also like that confirmation emails are the default for Adobe Sign, which is not the case with some other products. However, Adobe Sign is a more expensive product.
It was perfect for clearly communicating expectations with clients, and it's perfect for executing contracts with clients. In my work, I'm often reusing a contract template (but need to change a name, date, rate, etc.) or making a few tweaks to a contract for a new client and I wish that it was easier to make small changes without having to re-upload a whole new pdf of text. Like, it would be ideal if I could make small text changes within the web platform of Adobe Sign.
