Here are steps six and seven – Review/Revisions and Publishing
Content must be reviewed before it can be finalized. It takes more than one set of eyes and ears to catch mistakes and provide valuable subjective feedback.
We ask clients to provide input at critical stages of the process. We can test images and language in front of either formal or informal focus groups, before finalizing the program. We have developed approaches to our work that are designed to keep us from having to go backwards and make changes that could have been avoided. However, some amount of revising is inevitable.
Our digital content can be published instantly and distributed globally. The ease of publication is one of its largest advantages. However, rich media such as video has large file sizes and we have developed a methodology to prevent this from making a PDF preventatively large. Our solution is to host the video content on a video sharing service and then embedding links to the content in the PDF.
Our content is also designed to be repackaged and repurposed across a large spectrum of devices.
