What is a digital poster?

In a nutshell, a digital poster is a poster displayed on a screen instead of being printed. It’s a simple and effective way to communicate a message to your audience.

The great thing about digital posters, as opposed to traditional ones, is that you are not limited in the functionalities you can use to get that very specific message through. 

Your poster can include graphics over text to make it a real eye-catcher.

It is way less expensive to make an online poster than to print one, and it is way easier to manage. With a printed poster, you’re stuck with whatever you printed. A digital poster can be changed and edited anytime.

Digital posters also have the advantage of being search engine friendly. You can optimize your digital poster just like any webpage or blog post.

How to make a digital poster:

  1. To create a digital poster, you simply upload your poster as a PDF (or you can upload .doc, .docx, or .ppt file types or import your files directly from Dropbox or Google Drive). Our online poster maker will then transform your content into a dynamic-looking, promotional, and informative poster.

  2. Add links. Our digital poster maker allows you to add links so people can immediately engage with your content. Shoppable links make it possible to buy directly from your poster or you can link directly to the ticketing site or website for more information about your event.

  3. Why not create an Article Story to help you reach a wider audience? With our Article Stories you can transform your poster into a mobile-optimized article easily shareable via social media and email. Your poster is now available in everyone’s pocket with the most important information extracted. 

  4. You can also use the fullscreen sharing feature, which helps make your poster easily readable on any device. Fullscreen is a distraction-free reading experience--perfect for posters with lots of text.

  5. Finally, don’t forget our Embed feature. It allows you to embed it directly on your website, so it is now fully part of your content portfolio.
