Here at Calaméo we often talk about the advantages of digital publishing for professionals, businesses, educators, students, and marketers. But what about private individuals? Let us tell you all about the benefits of digital publishing for individuals and their personal projects.
🔎 READ: What content can you publish with Calaméo?
Whether you are uploading your resumé, administrative documents, or anything else to Calaméo, you can rest assured that your publication will remain private. How? By using our Private publications feature! All Calaméo users can publish their documents in Private mode, meaning that the information within the document will not be indexed by search engines, nor will it appear on the Calaméo website. If you would like for a select few people to be able to see your document but still want it to remain hidden from the general public, you can share your publication via a private URL.
A creative outlet
If you are a creative person, then digital publishing is a perfect option for you. Amateur authors can self-publish their short stories, poems, or novels on Calaméo. Online magazines look amazing on Calaméo, as do digital portfolios. If you want to keep these publications to yourself, see above. If you want to share them with the world, see below!
Share in a snap
Another great advantage of digital publishing for individuals? You can share your content (or publications from other users) in just a few clicks. Embed your content in your personal blog, share issues of your magazine in a virtual library, or simply send the URL of your publication to your friends and family. However you share your publication, your readers will be able to access your content and enjoy your work!
