Have you ever been frustrated by how complicated online publishing is? Have you ever struggled to find the perfect way to reach an online audience without making your magazines look cheap and clunky? I had I struggled for years to find the best website to use to host my publications. All I wanted was a newsstand that I could trust, and finally I found one and I’d like to introduce you today to Yumpu.com.
I believe they are the easiest, most effective and most rewarding free online journal publication site. Ever. Maximise the potential of your publications today. I have been running my publication for over a decade and when I knew I had to also go online with my magazines, I thought it would be simple. I could not have been more wrong.
I spent hours researching and all I seem to find was more complicated and difficult rabbit holes I kept disappearing down for days at a time.
It was a whole new world with a whole new language and I lost important time trying to find a website that could service what I needed. All I wanted was that I could upload PDF’s to a website and then simply click publish – it is not a lot to ask for as most website promise this?!
However when I thought I had found a website that worked, I then found lots of hidden fees and loopholes. What I thought would be an endless, thankless challenge eventually turned out to be a greatly rewarding once I found Yumpu.com.
Finally a website I could really use as I wanted and best of all it is free. Reputation means everything in publishing that’s why I had looked and research so hard to find the right website for me and my magazines.
The possibilities with Online Journals
Online journals are not just the files you upload, they are the articles, the images, the ideas and all that potential that comes with them. You want them to be seen and enjoyed and loved by as many people as possible and as a result finding the right website was complicated for me.
But now I have found the right website, I want you to understand how good it has been for me for my magazine. I have more time to focus on the content I write and the edits I need to make. New customers, I never would have had before have found us, they love our work we share and we are all so proud.
I want to share with you how easy it is to use Yumpu.com and also let you know a few of the benefits of the service we use every day.
Mobile, Desktop and tablet ready content at the click of button.
The services from Yumpu.com, and the benefits they offer, vary dramatically depending on what you really need.
We signed up and started with the free package because we knew it had everything we wanted to get started with. As the saying goes, you can’t run before you can walk.
The same applies to online journals, start simply and then build up if you want to. With our free package we are now able to publish our magazines online to our account and it only requires uploading the PDF document and about 5 minutes of your time. Once the document is uploaded, click publish and there you have it, an online journal!
What was, and still is, incredible for me was that the publication was already available on multiple devices.
I did not need to edit, crop or reformat my PDF one little bit, the automatic conversion to an online journal allowed our magazines to be responsive to mobiles, tablets and desktops.
I have done the research so you don’t have to. I was concerned when I started looking into online publishing. As I said earlier, some of the examples I was coming across look cheap and the navigation was complicated for the user of the publications, let alone us publishers trying to uploading content to the account.
Looking back now on our newsstand I am very proud of what we have created and I am really, really impressed because the images pop of the pages, the videos that we embed bring our magazines to life. We have been able to do exactly what I set out to do when I began looking into online journal publishing, we have made our magazine better and you can to with a free account from Yumpu.com.
