A landing page is a web page that promotes/describes your offer and provides a form that visitors need to fill out with their contact information in order to access your ebook. This is how you are able to convert your visitors into business leads that your sales team can ultimately follow up with.
I'm a manual collector—I have a file cabinet with a space devoted to holding all the documentation I get with every appliance: watches, washers, ceiling fans, tools, you name it. But I still tend to forget to look there when I have a quick question. I'd rather find them on my smartphone, so I can get quickly to the info—especially if it's in a searchable PDF file.
It’s worth testing different formats to see which works best in a given asset. The good news is that with interactive content, it’s much easier to perform these types of tests than it would be with a static PDF. You’ll gain more insight into how people are engaging with your content, and be able to update your asset based on performance data a lot more easily.

Ikea’s instruction manuals were internationally recognised when they won the 2015 Paul Mijksenaar Design for Function Award. As Paul Mijksenaar, the visual design expert behind the award, put it: “Ikea has managed to create an almost unparalleled, consistent and beautifully executed oeuvre. An oeuvre that, rather than being merely recognisable, has proven to be effective for more than 30 years”.
It works with all TreePad versions which help you to compile documents of HJT & TPD extensions and also share files, photos, hyperlinks and symbols as a lone EXE doc. The program offers a simple interface that does not offer much functionality. It does not require a learning curve and hence is pretty simple to use. You just need to track the input file of the TreePad and click on the “Start” option. Alternatively, once the alteration is over, you can also set the program to run the converted eBook automatically

Unless a customer or prospect is reading a book on an eReader, they’re unlikely to read pages and pages of text online. Luckily, an interactive eBook can convey a rich, valuable story without needing 5000 words of copy. Using videos, images, GIFs, animations, and layers of information, you can fully convey your story without relying on tons of copy to deliver the narrative.


While we may think of them as the dense paper booklets that fall out in a tumble of bubblewrap and polystyrene when we are unpacking our new bedside cabinet, instruction manuals are much more. They exist for a multitude of purposes and take many different forms. What’s more, they are not an especially modern invention: they have, in fact, been around for at least two centuries.
Measure your visitors to your online eBook using Google Analytics. Once you add the tracking code to your eBook, you can get the data from GA. The data will tell you about your audience behavior, including the number of new visitors, the turnout of the existing visitors, the specific pages they visit the most, from which web-sites, social networks, or search engines they access from, bounce rate, how long they stay on your eBook, geographical distribution of your readers and much more.
The earliest instruction manual that Bridgman found during his tenure was attached to a machine made by famous engineer James Watt. But the machine wasn’t a steam engine: it was an office copier. Watt realised that copies of his letters would be very useful to others and so he invented a machine that transferred damp ink from a freshly written letter to another sheet of paper, creating a copy of it.
The length of your lines of text and the spacing between them can have an impact on how comfortable it is for a reader's eyes to follow along.

Here's a quick design history lesson courtesy of Smashing Magazine.

I have been working with the Kotobee crew for some time now, specifically with their Kotobee Author software. I find it to be intuitive, easy to use, and generally a pleasure to work with.

And, of course, the format of instruction manuals has changed. Today they can just as easily be a YouTube video demonstrating the different functions of a buggy or a dedicated website to help businesses understand a complex new phone system or a user-generated online guide to fix a glitch on a troublesome smartphone. There also has been a move in recent years, enabled by web-based technology, for users themselves to create and share instruction manuals. Ifixit.com, for example, is “the free repair guide for everything, written by everyone.” As of March 2018, it offered 37,192 free manuals and, 122,145 solutions for over 10,570 devices.
How to Self-Publish your eBook Many people have a dream of being an author and wonder how to go about publishing an eBook and specifically how to self-publish on Kindle, Barnes & Noble, iBookStore, Smashword, Lulu. Well I have some really good news for you. All you will need is the Ultimate eBook Creator - which is probably one of the best eBook creation software on the market today. You can write your eBook from scratch using the built in professional WYSIWYG editor or, if you already have your content in a text file or word document, then you can literally import all your content into UEC, organize your content into chapters and sections and have your e-book published in less than 30 minutes (depending on how large the book is). UEC is probably the only e-book software you will ever need! It takes care of all the complex formatting and automatically generates your "Table of Contents", so all your formatting headaches are gone! You can generate for Kindle (MOBI), Barnes and Noble, iBookStore, Smashwords, LULU.com (EPUB) or generate an MS Word document or even a PDF document!

Another factor affecting how instruction manuals have evolved is globalisation. Companies frequently distribute their products to markets around the world, necessitating translations of the instructions into sometimes dozens of languages. Unless care is taken, this can result in confusion or frustration for the end user – and reflect badly on the brand.
*In order to publish an app either internally or to one of the app stores such as the Apple App Store or Google Play, you will need to sign-up for a paid developer account with the relevant vendor. The user is solely responsible for publishing apps created with App Studio including submitting app to the chosen app stores and any necessary approvals.
Web-based e-book apps tend to have simpler, user-friendly features as opposed to offline software which are mostly used for designing graphically intense content. If you’re looking to create a quick e-book without breaking the bank, there are lots of free online software available. On the other hand, if you have a budget to spend on software for creating a professional e-book, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go for a more advanced tool.
A few of the platforms we reviewed mimic social media accounts – almost like LinkedIn accounts for self-publishers. These can be a great resource for finding opportunities to host your work or connect with other authors.
