Hear from our customers

A large goal of the work we produce, like guides, is to turn prospects into customers. We have actually had a lot of success with content libraries of infographics and webinar recordings within Turtl Docs. So we certainly lean on Turtl for our content to have a longer shelf life.

Kathy Nothnagel Content Manager, Community Brands

Turtl just gives us another way of being able to capture what customers find engaging beyond how they’re using the website or in conversation. You can actually see where they spend time and it’s a lot more granular. It’s another way to measure and improve how we communicate externally.

Travis Jaggers Digital Marketing Leader, Veeva Systems

The insight we gain from Turtl from a data perspective is much richer than what we had from a simple PDF, it allows us to make more informed decisions about our content and what we’re sending to our clients.


What is a digital guide?

A digital guide is a form of instructional or informational material that is presented in a digital format, typically accessible through electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, or tablets.

Digital guides provide users with guidance, instructions, or information on a particular subject or topic.

What is the purpose of a digital guide?

The purpose of an online guide is to provide information, instructions, or assistance to users in a digital or online format.

Digital guides cater to a myriad of content needs, from providing information to prospects on products and services and supporting customer onboarding to training and policy documentation.


Are interactive guides effective?

Interactive guides can be highly effective in engaging users and enhancing their learning or user experience.

By including dynamic features, such as polls, videos, and interactive charts, digital guides encourage active participation from readers which deepens engagement and supports information retention.

Plus, it’s easy to create personalized content with Turtl’s Personalization Engine. Your audience can enjoy content that has been tailored to their needs, interests, and even previous engagement behavior. Not only does this win 84% more attention, but personalizing your guides promotes brand advocacy.

Do I need to be a designer, or coder, to create digital guides in Turtl?

Nope! Turtl is a performance-led content tool. Our intuitive editor has been designed to empower everybody to create amazing interactive guides; no design or coding skills needed.

Do I need to have any training to be able to use Turtl?

Turtl is packed full of functionality, so we recommend you complete our Training Programme to get the most out of it.

The Training Programme is made up of modules to bring you up to speed on the basics of Turtl before getting you creating, publishing, and analyzing your online guides like a pro in no time. You have the option to watch on-demand videos in your own time.

Once you get stuck in, our Support team will also be there to answer any questions you may have!

Why use Turtl instead of PDF for my digital guide?

The PDF is over 20 years old. The PDF offers no reader interaction, is not optimized for different devices, and encourages endless scrolling, resulting in less engagement.

Content in the PDF format goes against the core principles of how we absorb and remember information, and this is to the detriment of how readers engage with these materials.

As an alternative to the PDF, Turtl’s design is based on the science of reading and therefore solves this problem. Turtl offers its readers a far richer experience and provides its users with actionable insights, such as reads, sign-ups, and average read times, amongst other invaluable metrics.

Is Turtl mobile-friendly?

Turtl Docs are fully responsive and optimized for mobile and tablet, as well as desktop.

You can even see how your digital guides transpose before you publish using the mobile view in the content Creation Studio.
