    • Lean on LearnYBK.com for help with lesson planning.
    • Assign video tutorials for eDesign and InDesign. (Learn menu on MyHJyearbook.com.)
    • Plan for picture day.
    • Let us sell your book for you. Sign up for Sales Assist.
    • Deadlines are sneaky. Make sure the first one is all planned out.

    NEXT LEVEL

    • Ask your rep about Send and Sell. It’s a sales machine built right into eDesign.
    • Hunt, gather and organize. Make sure writers and photographers have a plan for saving and organizing files.
    • Schedule time with your leaders. Make sure everything’s going as planned.
    • If you’re not an early bird, cover and endsheet deadlines are right around the corner. Check your deadlines on MyHJyearbook.com.
    • Even though you may submit these pages later, plan coverage for your opening, closing and dividers. Remember to make visual-verbal connections.

    EXPERT
