In today’s competitive business world, there is no such thing as being overqualified. And indeed, having a firm grounding of some of Adobe’s most famous and useful tools can really help set you and your business apart from the competition.
Because in 2016 we are all participating in an extremely visual world of online marketing. The internet, and social media in particular, has transformed the way brands are perceived by the general public. These days, we all validate a company by typing a quick search into Google. And from there we first expect to find a website, and then a Facebook Page at the very least – but, what is more, we want them to look good.
Now, of course, a lot of that will come down to web design – but not everything. Indeed, once our smart-looking websites have convinced a first time visitor that we’re professional and have a sharp eye for detail, we don’t want to lose this when they delve deeper into what we have to offer.
The modern business will be producing printed marketing materials, online marketing materials, downloadable whitepapers (as PDFs), eBooks, eCards, business cards, and a whole lot more besides – and all of these things can be produced to an extremely professional standard using Adobe InDesign.
InDesign, however, is not a straightforward tool to use – especially for first-timers. It’s not that it’s particularly difficult, rather that it’s just so darn big. It’s enormous, in fact, and an incredibly powerful program to boot. Indeed, the thing that you will quickly learn when starting out with Adobe products is that they are professional tools, first and foremost. That is to say that they have not been designed to be user-friendly – and so coming at them as a complete beginner, with no guidance or formal training, can be an extremely daunting, and indeed off-putting, prospect.
Nothing Beats On-Site Training
It’s not unusual for someone to fire-up a program like InDesign for the very first time, with a head full of truly magic ideas to create an absolutely stunning flyer to advertise an upcoming event or what have you, only to become stuck in the first 5 minutes, and after about 15 minutes abandon ship altogether.
The problem comes with all the windows that pop up, all the tools with funny icons listed down the left of the screen, and the seemingly unlimited options from the menu bars at the top – where on earth do you start with it all?
I must admit that when I first started using Adobe products I was intimidated. The learning curve seems very steep – and it is, to be fair, which is why by far the best option is to invest in some on-site training.
Of course, there is a wealth of online tutorials out there that can get help you get started with InDesign and other Adobe products. But, to be perfectly honest, as handy as these can be to get you off the mark, the whole process of following a set of instructions, or endlessly pausing and rewinding a how-to video can become very tedious very quickly.
In complete contrast, by attending a training course, where there’s an expert at the helm, slowly guiding you through the whole process with real examples that you can practice with, a first time learner of InDesign can become familiar and confident with the product in a matter of a few hours.
