The first part of this course focuses on the absolute basics. We review the need for Publisher in small business advertising and working with templates. Publisher comes with numerous templates so that you don’t even need to have a design made. They save you money, and this course covers how to customize a template to fit your own brand.
Publications in Publisher are built with objects. This course covers every object that you’ll need to build a publication including text, pictures, placeholders and shapes. These basic building blocks have their own customizable styles and features, but Publisher also includes numerous pre-made object styles that can be used as well. With Publisher 2019, a person with little design skills can create professional marketing material.
After creating a publication file, Publisher has a design checker tool that this course explains. We also explain ways that you can mail merge to send publications to potentially thousands of people without creating documents individually. Lastly, we explain ways to finalize publications, send them to a printer and share them with other users. With this course, you should be able to go from a blank Publisher document to an attractive, fully designed publication ready for your audience and readers.
With clear and concise step-by-step directions, beautifully illustrated lessons with screenshots, and HD Video tutorials, this Publisher 2019 online course will teach you everything you need to know to become a Publisher power user.
