When you share files on your website or blog, how do you have your visitors access them? The easiest method is to simply supply a link, and have them download the file and open it locally on their computer. Although with this method there is always the possibility of an incompatible program type. You could also manually embed the file each time using sites like Slide or Scribe.
Both methods work, but I have an exciting new option for you that will render your documents into an elegant and flowing online publication. Issue has a launched a new free tool called SmartLook; and it’s very easy to setup. Start by visiting: Issuu.com/smartlook and add your domain name. Issuu then supplies some embed code to be included immediately above the </body> tag found at the bottom of your website pages. If you’re using a blog …that will be your Footer file.
Once you have completed the setup, and a document is downloaded the first time, Issuu imports a copy of the document into your account. Once it’s uploaded, it’s then converted and will show up when clicked for all new visitors. If users need to download the file, not view it…simply right click the link and choose “Save As.”
