Next steps after creating your first flipbook

Product: FlippingBook Online

You have created the first flipbook. Let's explore its settings that will turn your marketing brochure, catalog, or report into a powerful publication.

Some features are not available for all the plans. Learn about the differences between our plans in the comparison chart on the Pricing page (scroll down to see it).


Tune your flipbook to perfection

By changing a few simple settings you can get much more mileage from your flipbooks. Compare the customized flipbook on the left with the standard one on the right:

  • a custom background makes it stand out immediately and adds atmosphere;
  • a custom logo makes your brand recognizable and builds trust;
  • a call-to-action directs visitors to your own website to give more information about your product or service.

Feel free to explore these and other settings to customize your flipbook.


Make flipbooks more interactive and embed them on a website

Add images, videos, GIFs, and links using our Editor. Then feel free to make the flipbook a part of your website. It is possible to embed a full version of it or just a preview. All it takes is pasting a short piece of code into your web page. Here is a nice example of an embedded flipbook enriched with GIFs and links.

Generate more sales by catching new leads

Would you like to conduct a little survey to know more about your prospecting buyers? Or maybe you’d like to entice your readers with a preview that encourages them to buy a full version of the magazine? Use our Lead capture form to gather information about your readers.

See if someone opened your flipbook

Instead of sharing a simple link, use a trackable link and share that one-on-one with a reader. You can 

  • receive an email notification when a person opens it;
  • get a notification if a person has not opened a flipbook at all;
  • see how much time your reader spent on your flipbook and where.

Analyze statistics

Interested in learning how many people your flipbooks attract, how often they open them, and which pages interest readers most? We offer two tools for that: 

  • built-in Stats page. You can see how many views each page received, how much time people spent on pages, and on which links they clicked and how often.

  • Google Analytics. For advanced data, like demographics or visit locations, you can use our simple integration with Google Analytics to track your digital document’s performance

Protect your content

Secure private information from unwanted access. There are two ways to protect a flipbook that you can use together or separately:


Update flipbook without changing its link

If you need to add pages, change text or make some other changes to the flipbook, update the PDF first. Then, re-upload the updated PDF using the Replace PDF option. This way, the flipbook will update and its link will remain unchanged.

Note! This feature is available in Starter and higher plans.

If your plan is one of these, you can update your flipbook by opening the list of your flipbooks, choosing Replace PDF and following the steps in the article How to replace the PDF in my flipbook?
