Where do you start in creating an interactive digital brochure?

Creating an interactive digital brochure for your product can be an engaging way to showcase its features and reach out to a new audience. It can be considerably more cost-effective than creating a traditional print brochure, and you also have the benefit of being able to make revisions in the future without shelling out for another print run.

Trust the process

The prospect can be daunting if you’ve never created a digital brochure before, but it might just be the best decision you make this year.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to guide you through the process.

1: Define your objectives and content

  • Define Goals: Determine the brochure’s purpose—whether it’s for sales, education, promotion or information.
  • Identify Audience: Understand your target audience and tailor the content accordingly.
  • Gather Content: Collect high-quality images, product descriptions, videos, testimonials, and any other relevant information.

2: Choose a platform or tool

  • Select Software: Choose a platform or tool to create your digital brochure. Options include Adobe InDesign, Canva, or online brochure makers like Lucidpress or Flipsnack.
  • Consider Interactivity: Look for features that allow embedding videos, links, buttons, or interactive elements.

  • Write Compelling Copy: Content is king. Craft concise yet persuasive copy for product descriptions, benefits, and calls to action.
  • Incorporate Multimedia: Embed videos demonstrating the product’s use or customer testimonials to enhance audience engagement.
  • Use Hyperlinks: Link to relevant pages, websites, or additional resources for easy access to more information.

5: Test and review

  • Proofread: Check for spelling, grammar, and formatting errors.
  • Functionality Test: Ensure all interactive elements work smoothly across different devices and platforms.
  • User Feedback: Seek input from a small group to gather feedback on usability and effectiveness.

6: Publish and distribute

  • Stay Relevant: Ensure the content remains relevant to your audience’s needs and preferences.
