Course Description

Microsoft Publisher is Office 365's version of desktop publishing software. If you run a business or just have a small individual sole proprietorship, Microsoft Publisher can help you build attractive marketing material to advertise your business and keep in touch with current customers.

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 premade object styles that can be used as well. Using Publisher, 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. Finally, 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.
