The “Must-Have” Features of a Flip Book

Digital flip book platforms are now utilized by numerous corporations and organizations because of their ability to attract and engage viewers in ways that hard copies cannot. Flip books offer many more features and capabilities. They are used to create marketing materials, digital catalogs, annual reports, newsletters and many more. ePaperFlip offers a variety of interactive features that create a user-friendly reading experience across all digital channels. Here are some of the features that we think are most essential when creating a flipbook.

Analytics: Analytics provides you with important information about your readers and their behavior within your digital edition. DCatalog’s Google Analytics integration allows you to track the number of visitors, keywords searched, time spent in each edition and each page, page views, links clicked on and much more. This valuable marketing data allows you to measure your company’s success, the growth of your audience and determine which areas need improvement.

Multimedia: When marketing your material, multimedia is one of the biggest advantages of using a flip book when compared to a PDF or printed edition. Enrich your edition with multimedia such as pop-ups, images, videos, audio and links. You can integrate any or all of these types of media into your flip book, which makes it more engaging and interactive. Utilizing multimedia inside your digital edition is far more interesting and visually appealing to your viewers than an edition that only contains static text and images.The multimedia features encourage your readers to interact with the content.

Sharing and Social Media: Increase the reach of your brand and grow your audience by allowing your readers to share your flip book across other digital channels. With the simple click of a button, viewers can share your content through email and social media platforms such as Facebook, Google +, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. You can also share an edition through email or by linking it on your website.

Customization and Branding: Give your digital editions the look and feel of your company or organization. You can customize features such as your button skins, toolbars, background colors and more to make the catalog match your company’s website and other content. With DCatalog’s white label branding option, you can include your brand’s logo in the flip book. You can also mask your URL (, which will drive traffic back to your website.

Offline Version: Along with viewing your catalogs online, your readers can download an offline version through a flash drive or CD. This allows them to view your content without having to worry about an internet connection. With this feature you now have the option of downloading your own digital edition to flash drives and distributing them to potential customers, while giving them a small promotional gift at the same time.

eCommerce: If your catalog displays products that your company sells, your readers will be able to shop directly from within the catalog. Flip books can add eCommerce technology that creates a fully immersive online shopping experience. You can choose to integrate with an existing shopping cart platform (Magento, Shopify, Volusion etc.), have ePaperFlip build one from scratch or create a virtual wish list tool that allows users to add items to a list that can then be emailed or printed. These are some of the main flip book features that are being utilized by many companies, creating seamless and user friendly digital marketing content.
