Did you know that landing pages have the highest conversion rate (23%) than other types of registration forms? It’s true, but landing pages don’t turn visitors into leads on their own. If they don’t have compelling, attractive offers behind them, they won’t generate the leads that your sales team is looking for. This is why it’s so important to create valuable content that people want to download and then package it in a way that is visually appealing to your readers. An ebook is a practical content option that offers so much value to your audience that they won’t mind submitting a lead form to download. WP Forms reports that E-books are the most popular lead magnet among subscribers, with 27.7% of marketers using them.
Adding eBooks to your content archive can be a worthwhile endeavor, but it will take work. While every step of creating an e-book is critical, a substantial step in the e-book development process is creating a layout that helps tell the story in the copy. A professional and functional design makes the copy more readable to your audience, making it more likely to be referred to and even shared with a friend. We know that not every team has someone in the company who can (or has the time to) create an elegant and shareable e-book design. But we have good news: you don’t have to be a designer by profession to design beautiful e-books yourself. With the right resources and approach, you can deliver valuable content to your audience in a fraction of the time. A few years ago. We create e-book templates to make this process easier for you. They were so popular that we decided to renew the offering and include PowerPoint, Adobe Indesign and Google Slides formats. We hope these templates minimize the time you spend on design details, allowing you to focus on writing valuable, lead-generating content that your readers will love. Download templates now
