for creating digital publications
To get the most out of your publication you'll have to trigger your audience with visual content. Your readers decide where, when and how they read your content. Optimize your content by gathering new insights about your readers. These powerful features will help you out!
Your full-screen digital publication will be optimized for smartphone, tablet and desktop. Whether it's a Windows PC, MacBook, iPad, Android device or even a Smart TV, your content will be instantly accessible.
Page presets and content blocks
We offer more than 40 professionally designed page presets with prefilled content that you can edit and customize. Whatever type of content you want to produce, we have beautifully laid out pages, complete with dummy text, images, and animations to get you started.
We use a network of high performance cloud servers at more than 600 locations worldwide. Technologies such as smart caching ensure your publication is always served at lightning speed!
Video definitely adds an additional dimension to the experience of your publication. Use video as a full-screen background or add it to your content.
Google Analytics integration
Connect your publication to your Analytics account to get metrics on your readers' behavior. Check the most popular articles, visitor numbers, average page session duration and optimize your content based on the results. By adding Google Analytics you'll get automatic metrics such as scroll depth, outbound links, video-playing, social sharing, gestures such as swiping, device rotations and much more.
Personalize your content! You can add your recipient's name to titles, paragraphs or in Calls-To-Action to enhance engagement with your readers. Our URL-builder enables you to exclude pages on an individual basis to make sure your readers only receive content that is relevant to them. Content personalization also enables you to measure how individual readers consume your content.
We offer a wide selection of beautiful fonts, but you can also upload your customs font to the editor so you can edit your publication to fit your corporate identity perfectly. We ensure that your fonts work on older browsers too!
Search engine optimization (SEO)
When you publish a publication, our tool generates a text file and Sitemap XML to ensure Google indexes your publication quickly. If you want to exclude Google, you can activate a 'no-follow' script to keep your publication out of Google's search results.
Give your readers the option of sharing your content in order to enlarge your reach. You can share every publication on a page level, making it easier to re-use content. You can even add sharing elements to your content. Make it go viral!
Automatic issue management
The different issues of your publication will always be visible and available to your audience. This way you can easily refer to different issues and reuse your content!
It’s super easy to build and place your own forms in your publication. Want to collate job applicants or event enrolments? It's all possible with the form builder, and you’ll receive entries in your mailbox instantly!
Integration with the best platforms
Our digital publishing platform makes it a breeze to integrate the best third-party platforms in your publication. Everything from Typeform surveys to YouTube, Vimeo and/or Wistia videos and the best music from SoundCloud!
You might consider granting access only to visitors who provide their Facebook or LinkedIn data through a social login. This way you’ll gain even more insight into the demographics of your readers.
Use your publication as a whitepaper. Visitors can then only open the publication if they provide personal information such as name, e-mail address or company name. A solid way to generate high-quality leads.
