1) Are there any limits to the size of free no-obligation previews or how many I can create?
No, you can preview your entire publication, regardless of the size. If you have multiple publications and would like to send us more than one so you can see the quality and benefits of a YUDU digital publication, then you are more than welcome to - we can't wait to work with you!
2) How long can I keep my free preview publication(s)?
Previews and demos are available for 7 days, giving you time to discuss the digital publication internally, share with external advertisers and make a decision on whether you would like it to go live. Extended preview periods are available upon request.
3) Can I update my digital publication once it has gone live?
Of course. If you are simply amending an existing page then we won’t charge you a penny. If you wish to increase the number of pages in your publication, we will only charge you for what you add - barring additional arrangements with your account manager. No full reprint charges, no paper waste, no fuss.
5) Can I self-host my content?
Yes but please be aware that you will be responsible for the security, page delivery speeds and up-time of your publications once deployed.
YUDU can host your publications to ensure availability you can rely on and true global reach. We use AWS' content delivery network (CDN) so that your publications are delivered lightning fast across the globe, and all our content servers use redundant architecture to avoid single points of failure. That means your digital publications are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, around the globe.
6) Can I control who can view my publication?
You can offer your publications completely free or as part of a subscription, requiring username and password entry.
Our DRM (Digital Rights Management) system provides the ability to manage your subscriber database with ease, offering different levels of access based on individual publications or dates.
Furthermore, our digital publications are automatically indexed via Google, which can also be switched on and off at the click of a button, should you need to change this.
7) How do I access the statistics of my digital publication?
Within the easy-to-use yet intuitive publishing system, simply click on View Statistics to access 36 individual statistics on how, where, when and by whom your publication has been viewed – even down to the internet browser used.
You can access your statistics in a graph or chart format, with many available as downloadable reports over variable lengths of time, ideal for judging the impact of your digital content.
Alternatively, we offer Google Analytics 4 integration and our team can help set this up for you.
8) Can I have more than one self-publishing account?
You can assign any number of user access details to your account in YUDU Publisher, from any location at any given time.
If you are the organized type, you can organize your content by project folders. Once these have been set up you just need to create log-ins for each folder, and give access to the relevant people on your team.
We fully equip you with tools to create multiple accounts for users and projects, and we provide you with a simple interface to manage and provide your content.
9) Can I receive training for the self-publishing application?
We have a help site and help videos to guide you through the tools you need to create your publication. The platform has been designed to be intuitive, though, and if you're used to any kind of online system, you shouldn’t have any issues. Of course, if you find that you do need a little extra support, our team are at hand. We can provide email support or set up one-to-one training webinars via Microsoft Teams.
