When I first started my online business, I assumed a PDF link in my website was the best and only way to embed my quarterly catalogs and corporate updates and places like Yumpu.com were a waste of time. I did this for about three years and always ran into the same issues. For one thing, the PDFs always took too long to load, and I missed a lot of hits from readers that left before it could finish. On top of that, my mobile visitors had to suffer even longer load times on my website pdf viewer embed, if it even decided to download at all. As social media became popular, I tried to expand only to find that PDFs were horrible files to share with my customer base. Needless to say, I was incredibly frustrated as I watched business get worse and worse. Finally, I gave in and registered with Yumpu Pubishing. The difference saved my company.
