The 2nd Edition Pereira City Guide
Pereira is a modern city surrounded by tremendously beautiful nature areas.
It is often explained to others as a “smaller version of Medellin.”
We have the best infrastructure and the lowest cost of living.
Why didn’t Pereira have a well-written guide in English to help outsiders discover the city we fell in love with? And, this is where the inspiration for Pereira City Guide started. This is where we stepped outside our “safety zone” and invested everything into a project that is going to help revolutionize the local tourism industry by creating a body of information, readily available online.
Then we took it a step further. A visitor might not have WiFi or service everywhere they go. So we created an eBook that can be accessed anywhere, anytime, for need-to-know information at YOUR fingertips!
We also made some promises…
Our Promises and Our Mistakes
We made some promises to our readers and our project participants.
- To publish on or prior to July 1st, 2016.
- To create a highly visual but brief eBook that will convey a LOT of information in a small, easy-to-get-to format.
- To publish on Amazon, iBooks and eventually other platforms for ALL electronic devices.
We did manage to publish July 1st on Amazon.com. It was close, there were unforeseen issues that caused us to cut it terribly close for getting the document uploaded for review within the window of time needed prior to launch. And we overcame them.
The eBook was graphically designed by a professional designer in Europe. It took several weeks for the designer to finish even though the book itself was only 44 pages originally. The final product features blocks and swatches of safety information, history about the city and even a few fun Spanish phrases. This information is interspersed with high quality pictures of popular sites, buildings and monuments in Pereira. The overall design is adventurous and modern.
We DID publish on Amazon as promised, but we held off on publishing to other platforms due to our mistakes:
- Failure of the document to automatically resize to fit other devices. Users were able to zoom in but the document didn’t auto-adjust to suit other devices.
- We discovered a couple glaring mistakes, missing information and some typo’s that called into question our integrity, especially with the project participant graphics.
Upon realizing these things, we knew that no matter what it takes, or profits we lose, we had to fix this. The entire month of July was spent on edits and re-edits. August was the re-design process where we worked with the graphic designer to update the changes and additional information into the new version. End of August, beginning of September was spent finding and employing a eBook conversion specialist to go in and carefully convert everything from PDF to .ePub for Amazon and other platforms.
