Re: Newsletters -- what's the best tool for creating them?
This week I'm being asked to create a newsletter template that will be easy to use
and maintain in an environment that runs strongly to the non-technical (e.g.,
nobody knows how to use MS Word styles). I've been told I can recommend a tool for
purchase so long as it is not TOO expensive, can accept content from MS Office
products, and doesn't have a hefty learning curve. The newsletters will have 8.5 x
11 pages and may be distributed on paper or in PDF format.
The right solution really depends on your target audience. All of the newsletter production software requires some level of skill to use -- at least as much as understanding how styles work and why they increase productivity.
If you can give a sense of who the newsletter is for and their level of technical knowledge it can help narrow the field of possible solutions to one or two choices.
