Challenge: A flip book with a video inside

When I was looking for a way to really spice up my presentation to impress my professor with a flip book that had a video inside, I looked at different possibilities. Scribd.com, Slideshare, Magcloud, Issuu and probably a dozen other Issuu alternatives. None of them gave me the ability to quickly and easily take the PDF document I’d created, and turn it into a flip book with a video without a lot of technical know-how, a fee, or both.

Yumpu allowed me to create my flip book for no cost. It took a few minutes with the click of a single button.

Yumpu.com is a website includes all that you want.

I just created an account, and I had logged in and went to the main page. Then I uploaded my PDF document to the page and a flip book was created.

All I had to do is to place the video inside of my flip book with the help of the Yumpu hotspot editor. It was really easy.

The brilliance of including a Video in a Flip Book

Whether you’re making a class project, a work proposal or you just want viewers on your webpage to pay attention to something new and different, a video inside of a flip book is the way to go. This is especially true if you don’t have a lot of technical skills.

If you’re not technically proficient, or you don’t have the budget to do something big like a full-scale presentation, then a flip book with a video can often get the job done more than adequately. All I needed was a simple PDF file and Yumpu.

It’s not a one-time success, either. Yumpu has become something of a trade secret among my friends and family, at least in part because I used it first.

My cousin had a research proposal she was working on, my dad had a report he wanted to jazz up for his bosses, and my younger brother needed a good grade in his history class. I told each of them about the software and sat down with them, and showed them how to make a flipbook with this software. They’ve never looked back to folded handouts again.

Quickest and easiest solution

Since I’ve had my presentation, I’ve been looking for more ways and possibilities. So I decided to create a magazine and to try it out in that format. Believe it or not, it worked pretty well.

I had to fiddle with the settings a bit to get it just right. Then I put it up on my website, and people started noticing.

I got a lot of comments, and a lot of emails asking how I’d made that kind of magazine. Once I started adding them more often, I started telling my users about Yumpu.com as well.

Some of them checked it out, and while not everyone has used it, more than a few people wrote me back and said thank you for the tip.
