Once you sign up for an Issuu account, you’re just a few steps away from publishing your content to an audience of millions. Use Issuu's drafting feature to preview and prepare your content for uploading, add a title and description, customize your settings and you’re on your way.
Drafting Your Content
- After logging in, select the upload icon or choose UPLOAD from the PUBLISH menu in the upper right-hand corner
- This will open your new drafted content where you'll make your content ready for publishing
- Click SELECT A FILE TO GET STARTED or simply drag your file into the box
- Once you've selected a file you can follow your content through the different steps of the conversion process. When your file is fully converted you can see how your content will appear in the Issuu reader
- Your content is now saved as a draft and will be available for editing. All drafts can be found at the top of the page
Note: You cannot combine pages once you have uploaded the files to Issuu. You have to combine the pages to form a single PDF, then upload it to Issuu.
Publish Your Content
- While you're waiting for your content to convert it's time to fill out the BASIC INFORMATION for the content:
- TITLE - a title is required for the work to be published
- DESCRIPTION - a description is optional, however adding a detailed title and description will help with SEO
- TYPE - tell us what type of content you're publishing
- BACKDATE - setting a backdate will affect the order of your content on your Publication List and on your profile page
- DETECTED LINKS - as part of the Premium and Optimum subscriptions you can enable detected links. Learn more about what type of links can be detected here
- The last step before publishing is to set the VISIBILITY SETTINGS:
- AVAILABILITY - here you need to choose if you want to make your content PUBLIC, so it's available everywhere on the web, or UNLISTED, which means that only readers with the link can see the content
- DOWNLOADS - with a Premium or Optimum subscription you can make your content downloadable on Issuu.com and in your embeds
- ADVERTISEMENTS - all banner ads will not be shown beside your content on Issuu.com or in our apps if you're subscribed to the Premium or Optimum subscription
- Once you've finilazed your selections, click PUBLISH NOW to publish and voilà - an automatically converted, beautiful Issuu publication! You can see your content right away on your Publication List
- You can also choose to SCHEDULE your content to be published later if you're a Premium or Optimum subscriber. If you schedule your content, until it gets published it will be accessible under DRAFT LIST. When it gets published you will find the content under PUBLICATION LIST.
