To publish content with the Nomad Travel Solution Package either we will set up an automated process to import it from your website content management system (CMS) or the content will need to be entered manually through Nomad's CMS.
If you don't already have your content in some sort of database and don't have the time to enter it manually through our CMS, we can do this for you as a service.
Even if we import content automatically from your CMS, you will still need to use the Nomad CMS to configure the content structure for your mobile website and app (See the "Plan" page). It's a very simple process and typically only takes 1-3 hours to organize everything to your satisfaction.
Nomad’s CMS is hosted on our servers and can be accessed through any web browser.
Any content updates can be pushed out to your mobile website and apps within a matter of minutes.
Below is a step-by-step walkthrough of the publication process.
You can bring content into the Nomad platform in one of two ways:
We can set up an automated import process to synchronize content from your main website content management system (CMS) to your mobile website and apps. By doing this, you can utilize your existing CMS to maintain portions of your mobile content such as lodging, restaurant and events listings. Content needs to be available in a structured database format, with separate fields for things like street address or business category.
For certain kinds of information it may still be easier for you to enter it directly in the Nomad CMS.
Create and edit content items that can contain:
Once the majority of your content is entered, you will need to organize it into Guides and Sections. Think of this as the main table of contents for your app. Unlike traditional printed materials, however, you can include the same content item in multiple parts of your table of contents.
You’ll use the Nomad CMS to create and organize these Guides and Sections, and assign Content Items to them.
The Nomad publishing platform includes numerous content reviewing tools, within the CMS itself and on actual devices. Publishers can use the following to review content:
We suggest you do the following to proof your app prior to publication:
This is where Nomad Mobile Guides does the heavy lifting for you. You tell us what content is to be published on what date and we do the rest for you.
