I was approached last year about creating a digital magazine. I hadn’t done anything like this before and I wasn’t sure how straightforward it would be. However, when I was recommended FlipBuilder, I was amazed at how easy it would make the process.
Canva gives you some great templates to use as magazine layouts which is where I began. Once we had decided on the template it was just a case of adding the content and making it look fresh and contemporary.
When the magazine content was ready to go, I uploaded it as a PDF to Flipbuilder, after choosing a background to lay it on, and “Bob’s your uncle!” You have your very own published magazine! It even makes the page turning sound as you flick from page to page! Depending on which package you go for, it can also be interactive with links to outside urls, and embedded videos amongst other things.
What I also liked about this is that it comes with a WordPress plug-in meaning you not only have it published as a url, but you can also embed it into your website. Quite a cool feature!
So far I’ve published a client’s biography in magazine form and a 60 page dog breed magazine (which had such a great response, I will be producing this on a bi-annual basis). Next up is a magazine for a client’s Life Coach training course. Lots of opportunity to be creative, I can’t wait to get started on it!
Here is The Sloughi Review and here is what my client had to say about it:
Working with Caroline Mathews of My Super VA to develop a flip page e-magazine has been a very positive experience. Caroline Mathews listens, answers quickly, implements, corrects with great attention to detail and in a very timely manner. This resulted in a highly professional and internationally acclaimed publication with a beautiful lay-out. I cannot recommend her enough.
