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, and 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.

Then, 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. www.Yumpu.com 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 Yumpu.com, sat down with them, and showed them how to make a flipbook with this software. All it took was one time, and they’ve never looked back to boring old power points or 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 flip book. Once I started adding them more often, I started telling my users about www.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.

With technology moving as fast as it is, people don’t need to be programmers and software developers to create a unique, noticeable product anymore. Heck, I consider it a good day if I remember all my passwords. Even so, I can create unique, worthwhile content with the click of a button that draws in viewers, and that has gotten me and my site noticed.
