How to Make Your Online Book Stand Out

Great content deserves great wrapping. Don’t forget about it when working on your online book, and it will be bound for success. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Optimize for mobile devices

We’re a generation glued to our—pretty small—mobile screens. If you want your readers to enjoy your content everywhere, choose larger fonts and a clear structure. Using multiple columns layout also helps, as it makes it much easier to zoom in on a specific text and read it comfortably. 

By the way, clear structure, large fonts, and contrasting colors make your books more accessible, so a greater number of readers can enjoy them. Read more on accessibility guidelines and how FlippingBook helps here.

Prioritize navigation

PDFs are notoriously difficult to navigate around, but FlippingBook digital book creator improves things drastically. A clickable table of contents and a search option will help your readers switch between the chapters of your book effortlessly and find relevant info in seconds. Plus, our software will automatically pull up the bookmarks from your PDF file and transform them into an interactive table of contents. 

Vary your content with interactivity

Depending on the type of your content, interactive elements can just be a fun little detail or an integral part of your digital book. In any case, with a bit of interactivity, reading your book will turn into an exciting journey.

  • Try videos with the author’s commentaries, interviews, or a book trailer instead of a static annotation.
  • GIFs are a great way to bring life to inline illustrations.
  • Pop-ups let you add images that go beyond the standard layout and help visualize content better. Think maps or newspaper spreads.   

Show off your books with a stylish digital bookshelf

If you have several lifelike digital books, why not keep them on a lifelike digital bookshelf? It’s a great way to present your content online creatively. Plus, it will be super comfortable for your readers to explore your content, as they will be able to access all of it in one place. Here’s what a bookshelf created with FlippingBook online book maker looks like:
