When you’re looking for a flipbook creator, all the tools may seem the same and it can be challenging to choose the right one. A good strategy could be to understand why you need a flipbook tool in the first place: to empower your digital content, make the process of creating flipbooks easy and fast, sell your flipbooks, etc.

And sometimes you can’t decide between two flipbook makers. FlippingBook or Flipsnack, for example. To help you see what FlippingBook allows you to do, we’ve gathered the main reasons why people choose FlippingBook vs Flipsnack.

Conversion of PDFs into hardbound digital books is fantastic. The moment a flipbook comes on the screen, it gives you an effect like you’re actually reading a book. Our readers are fascinated with that. On Kindle you’re just scrolling down the screen, which is very boring. And FlippingBook gives our readers a live experience.

Reason 4: We Care about Your Security and Privacy

We know that in our digital era security is more vital than ever and we always care about your privacy. We don’t use your flipbooks for unsolicited promotion of our services (only with your permission), we just help you create the content and give you full control of it. There’s nothing that can take your readers’ attention from your flipbooks, only a small FlippingBook logo in the corner that you can change to your company’s logo. 

We’ve built a state-of-the-art infrastructure and use highly-reliable Amazon servers to ensure that your flipbooks are protected from unwanted access, securely hosted, load fast, and are always available on any device. We have always taken cybersecurity seriously, introducing efficient protective measures against any and all possible threats. But don’t take our word for it—discover FlippingBook’s cybersecurity rating provided by SecurityScorecard.

You can choose whether to make your content public or private. From a shareable link only available to your recipients to a protected embed that only works within your website. When you password-protect your sensitive content, we’ll make sure it stays secured and there’s no way to view your flipbooks without a password. And if you restrict how your content can be shared, your flipbooks will be available only to the audience you select.

Document analytics

Track the number of people and total views your publications drive, what parts of your document are the most engaging, and how much time your readers spent reading your flipbook. Knowing how people engage with your content helps you make it even more powerful.

Lead analytics

Add a customizable lead capture form that will help you collect leads right within your flipbook. You can choose from the options we offer: email, name, phone number, company name, country, or set your own. This way, you will gather all the essential data about your leads and contact them at the right time.
