Accessibility and Convenience

If you are looking to reach a wider audience through online distribution then you will need a digital brochure. The speed at which a brochure can be shared and accessed is almost instantaneous. Anyone with a device that is connected to the web can gain Instant access from any location and share with an infinite number of people at the same time. This process is a hugely more cost-effective form of distribution compared to traditional print brochures.

Interactive and Engaging Content

One of the most significant benefits of digital brochures is the ability to incorporate multimedia elements (videos, animations, audio) into the structure and fabric of a document. By creating interactive features that enhance a user’s experience you can dramatically increase the effectiveness of your proposition and increase brand engagement. Engaging any audience with this level of storytelling by utilising dynamic content presentation can elevate a traditional brochure to a highly effective conversion tool.

Cost Savings and Sustainability

The most obvious difference between a printed brochure and a digital version is the cost savings created by eliminating printing and the associated distribution costs. Digital distribution has costs associated with it but they are a fraction of those linked to physical versions. If there is no printing then there is no paper, ink or production – each saving not just money but having significant sustainability benefits. In an environment where there is mounting pressure to reduce your carbon footprint, use less water, avoid unnecessary pollution and generally use fewer resources, digital brochures are a convenient way of achieving these targets.

Historically, if a brochure needed to be updated, marketing teams would be faced with the difficult decision to completely replace it or create an update that could be inserted into the existing version. Digital brochures do not suffer from this concern as any update is applied to artwork and can easily replace the existing version without any wastage or environmental impact.

Easy Sharing and Social Media Integration

Social Media has created a constant demand for fresh content and digital brochures have their place in this frenzy. The ease at which digital brochures are distributed means that users can help distribute with almost effortless sharing via email, social media, and messaging platforms. The effect of this social sharing is that your brand exposure is amplified to audiences that may have been previously impossible to reach.
