View on any screen

It doesn’t matter where your readers are when they click your link and what device they are using to flip through your ebook—you can be sure that they have a quality viewing experience on any screen.


Analyze viewers’ data

Your marketing ebook tells you all you need to know about your readers’ activity: views, time spent on the page, their location, devices used to open the ebook, and more. You can see how people interact with your content and therefore analyze its efficiency based on actual numbers.
