YumpuPublishing’s ultimate checklist for digital publications:
- Correct naming of the publication
This is an important point to keep in mind if you want to create digital publications. You have a brilliant idea for a magazine, a collection of brilliant articles, and maybe a video. Now you need to make sure that the name is unique and inspirational.
- Description of the publication
The description of the publication shows what it is about. You have to make sure that you are clear, precise, honest, simple, and effective. Make sure you clearly state the purpose of the publication. You have to tell the reader why you published the publication and what is inspiring.
- Choose an appropriate category and language
This point may sound perfectly logical. Nevertheless, it is important to ensure that the publication on Yumpu can be found in the right place. Ultimately, it is intended to attract new readers through ads with similar titles and publications. You have to take the time to look at each category and decide which category fits the content. You also have to consider in which language you want to publish. And in which international areas you want to expand and where the topic is particularly well received.
- Select the correct tags (keywords)
The publication can be found and read more easily by many people if you add tags. One has to choose the right tags for the publication so that one can properly categorize the publication. The reader can use the categorization to find content or to find out more about the content.
- Add interactive elements
In digital publishing, you face tough competition and you have a clear view of those who are rising. The big hits are those that incorporate multimedia elements. You, therefore, have to plan the publications and make sure to have an appropriate mix of the formats offered. You can add videos, audio files, and links and integrate images with slideshows. The different types of content will bring the publication to life and readers won’t get enough of it.
- Link and network
It’s fascinating how adding links to the publications can drive traffic to the publication. This traffic drives the popularity of the publication with readers who support the SEO of the title. It’s really foolproof and the perfect way to connect with readers, advertisers, etc. But don’t forget that traffic flows in both directions. You should therefore make sure to include links back to the publication wherever possible.
- The right branding (brand name)
The brand is at the heart of one’s own identity. The digital publications should look and sound like your own brand. With Yumpu Publishing you can use the design tool by choosing colors, fonts, and logos. With the adFREE plan, you can offer readers a completely ad-free product. This means that you will not see any additional logos or advertisers in the publication or in its surroundings.

- Take advantage of social media
Social media should not be seen as an additional, but rather as an essential marketing tool. Basically, for someone who is just taking their first steps in digital publishing, social media is an unthinkable advantage. With YumpuPublishing it is very easy to use social media and thus achieve the best results. You can post the publications on the appropriate social media pages immediately after they are published. With YumpuPublishing’s help you can implement this process quickly, easily and effectively. Sharing your work on social media has the advantage of drawing more people’s attention to the publications. You should therefore use digital publications in social media.
If you want to publish the publication, then you should consider the ease of use. You have to deal with several questions. Will readers enjoy reading the publication? How easy will it be to navigate the publication? This is not a problem with YumpuPublishing, because responsive design is the standard at YumpuPublishing. The publication can be read automatically on multiple devices. In addition, you can create a table of contents with internal links. The tactile and captivating page flip function can be used to make the reader come back.
