New Year’s can be a time when it’s easy to pile on new obligations, new resolutions and new strategies.

I’m all for starting new projects in the new year (more from me on that in the coming weeks!), but I’m also all for stopping whatever’s not working. How else are you going to find the resources for new, innovative strategies?

    All the very best for 2017

    Again, the quality of your PDF downloads are excellent.
    I am wanting to create one myself, so what exactly do you use to produce yours?
    Or is that a trade secret?

    Just watched Tony Robbins “I am not your guru” Wow!

    Thanks again for all your high value information.

      Thanks Michael! There are two things I can give you to help with this: (1) It starts by you being able to organize or “chunk” the content prior to sending it to design. The human brain loves structure and logic, but it also loves images (more than text). So if you can combine these two things (structure with visuals), it creates a really usable document for people. For me, I just write my content in a word document but I make a lot of comments and notes to my designers about where I want boxes, call outs, graphics, images, etc. So I give a LOT of direction for my graphic designer right inside my word document. (2) If this is new to you, send your designer some samples of designs you like – feel free to send any of mine as samples. And you can do a google images search and find some great ideas there (you just can’t use the ideas directly from google images). For a designer, I love to use 99Designs to run a contest and get lots of options, and then I find a designer I want to hire outright based on the results from the design contests I run. I hope this makes sense – kind of a big question to try to answer in a blog comment so let me know if this isn’t helpful! ๐Ÿ™‚

        It was all very helpful indeed Pam.
        I was aware of 99 Designs & the contest thing. You probably mentioned it somewhere before.
        The importance of including plenty of visuals & images in your text to break it up.
        Your mention of chunking, structure & logic was very important to me because if anything, the phrase “Too Much Information” applies to me & I tend to get lost myself!
        Rather than just concentrating on one area of your expertise & going into greater depth on that?
        If I were to do it myself & have a go at making something like yours, what programme/software would you recommend?
        Again… thanks for all the advice. It’s really appreciated because this year, I actually want to do something rather than just gather information. (Which then just gathers dust!)

          Michael – so true about information gathering dust! I can relate to that one! I write my content in microsoft word (and then add text boxes, comments, etc.) so I get the content structurally and visually where I want it on the page. Then, I have my designer make it look great by adding color, nice fonts, icons/graphics, etc. He uses Indesign for this. (I have a shutterstock account where is where I get all my stock icons and images). Then I export all my design files as PDFs to share publicly. Indesign is expensive so if you prefer, you can get a really nice designed layout in photoshop or even using PowerPoint or Keynote (lay it out as slides and then convert it to a PDF when you’re done).

          I hope this helps – and keep me posted on your progress this year! ๐Ÿ™‚
