How to add a pdf, power point, floor plan or spreadsheet to your single property website

With some listings there might be a need to add information other than listing  photos and videos - for example a floorplan, or a pdf document spreadsheet or a power point presentation.  For example, with a unit in a condo complex you might want to attach the CC&R documents;  Or, with a commercial property you might have a power point or a spreadsheet that would be useful to a potential buyer.
There are several sites that allow you to create embed codes for your files, for example Scribd.com, Embed.ly, siegemedia.com, you may even use your google docs service.  

This tutorial explains the steps using Scribd.com. There are otehr options to host your documents and get links/embed codes for them, such as embed.ly, or Google docs.  

You will need to upload the document on their site to get an embed code or link,  and you also get several features other than embedding - please review their site and help files for details;  Note please that the screenshots used in this tutorial are with Scribd.com and may not show exactly what you will see, as these sites often change their pages.
