Drag and drop a PDF into a specified location on your desktop, 3D Issue then auto creates this PDF into a 3D Issue publication, saving you that, one of the most precious of commodities, time! The DropBox style automatic converter allows publishers to simply drop PDFs into a ‘Hot’ folder on their computer and have it automatically published onto their site completely removing all interaction with the main software.
Version 7 has added a brand new facet to its already considerable armory, it goes by the name of Hubs; Hubs creates a responsive digital magazine to include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, RSS feeds, websites and much more. An innovative, unique marketing hub which can be assembled in a manner of minutes but will constantly update your content offerings ensuring the consumer is kept aware of all the latest developments within your field of expertise. All this without you having to lift a finger after the initial set up process has been carried out.
To truly resonate with your potential consumers you are going to have to go that extra yard in terms of not only the content you create but also in the delivery said content. Consumers have access to more devices and through these, different mediums than ever before; businesses and brands have to ensure that they are reaching out through all these portals to maximize reach and coverage.
It defeats the purpose of spending all that time and money creating outstanding content and then finding the consumer can’t view it on the device they prefer. Utilizing Hubs for your branded content will enable you to not only create the content, but also ensuring it is viewable across whatever device the consumer chooses to view it on.
