By creating a flipbook, you can embrace this popular, user-friendly medium and capitalize on its social sharing potential. It’s win-win.
Feature on Facebook
Speaking of social media, you can easily add your flipbook to your company Facebook page or fanpage. Wow your audience with this unique media integration, and create an enhanced experience your Facebook page visitors will remember.

No matter your target market, it’s likely your current and potential customers want to have fun online.

The flipbook format naturally creates a sense of curiosity in the reader, too, as they wonder what they’ll come across next while they flip from page to page.
