1) A PDF Manual
“Seriously? PDFs are so ‘naughties’! Also, nobody ever reads them! And even if they did, you wouldn’t know about it… They’re a one-way source of information, they’re virtually untrackable and they’re notoriously difficult to search through. And for these reasons, they’re one of the worse possible options for your users. Anything but, please!”
2) Blog Posts or Ebooks
“Eeeek, this isn’t a great choice for your users either, you know! Blogs and ebooks aren’t designed to be navigable or interactive – they’re designed for people who are there to consume content, rather than engage with it. Both have their place in marketing, to be sure, but you want your users to be fully engaged with what you’re delivering, not sitting back and idly flicking through it!”.
3) A Video Series
“OK, videos have their place in education – we use them ourselves, in fact. But we designed Nickelled Academies because there’s one big problem with videos – how do you structure them? You can’t just sent users a bunch of URLs and expect them to make the right viewing choices. Using Academies alongside your videos ensures that you’re delivering the right curriculum to your users, structured in a way that aligns with your product features.”
4) A Knowledge Base
“Knowledge bases are just great – for support! If a user has one specific question, a knowledge base is definitely the first and best port of call. But for users that need a full overview of the product, broken down in a process-driven way that aligns with how they’ll be using your product, an Academy is the stronger option.”
