Making Flipbooks is really simple

Making Flipbooks is really simple

The no-cost service of the Flipbook website YUMPU Publishing really works! You got to try it when making a flipbook, especially after listening to my story!

There I sat thinking, “What am I going to do?” I wanted to convert this PDF file turned into a Flipbook. Sure, I could load it up onto the Internet as is, but then people wouldn’t be able to read it. You see PDF files are not easily searchable. So the best solution was to try making flipbooks magazine from the PDF. Still, this was a complex project. “How was I going to do that?” Sure I had seen these online magazines, with beautiful graphics and gorgeous layouts, but I was certain this was going to be one of those all-nighters. I wasn’t sure I was going to get it done on time. I searched for the best way of making a flipbook to post on my blog. (Read this post if you want to know what is a flipbook).

The best decision

After reading reviews and how-to’s for the better part of an hour, I decided to try Issuu. It looked good. I thought it was somewhat easy. This was going to be my solution in making a flipbook. So this was the platform I initially tried. After another hour, I found that Issuu had speed issues for uploading PDFs.

But finally, I got it up I thought, then I went to embed the magazine on my website – and guess what – let’s just say I wasn’t in a very good mood. I came to find out that Issuu doesn’t have a sharing feature, or at least I couldn’t find it when I was making a flipbook magazine. So what was the purpose of using this platform to make a magazine if I couldn’t share it with readers, with friends, or with colleagues that visited my site? Nope, this certainly wasn’t a viable option for me when making a flipbook.

After wasting that hour, I learned quickly that I better check to see if there was a share option on other platforms for making a flipbook. To my chagrin, Blurb, Scribed, Slideshare, Magcloud and even iBook maker had one issue or another. None were really easy to work with and all had some type of limitation. Finally, after hours of research, I found an easy-to-use platform for making flipbooks. It’s called YUMPU Publishing, and best of all, it’s totally free, with no gimmicks, malware, or any other sneaky “pay for me” line.

My opinion

Had I known of YUMPU Publishing before, I would not have had to test the other software and put in my energy.

I would recommend YUMPU Publishing for its fabulous ease of use in making Flipbooks. YUMPU is great and I’ve used it several times since that first initiation.
