• What is a lead capture form and how does it work?

A lead capture form is a form that asks a viewer to leave their email address before they can see your flipbook. It allows you to collect leads right within your publication. By adding a lead capture form, you can track who accesses your content and how they interact with it.

You may want to add the lead capture form to a specific page in your document – for example, to give your reader a little preview of the content they will get before they decide to leave their email address.

You can do this by going to your FlippingBook Online account and following these steps:

  1. Go to your publication and choose Customize.
  2. Click Lead capture form.
  3. Go to Set on page and choose the page where you want your lead capture form to appear.

How can I make sure a viewer will see the lead capture form in their preferred language?

 

The publication interface supports 17 languages: English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Russian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Polish, Norwegian, Finnish, Turkish, Hebrew, and Arabic.


The Lead capture form feature detects a viewer's language based on their web browser settings and auto-translates accordingly. So, if your publication is viewed, say, in Japan, the form will appear in Japanese by default. Should you want to see the form in a different language, just change the language settings in your browser.
