Are you looking to create a comprehensive eBook library? 

Did you know that you can achieve this with Thinkific? 

Let’s walk through the process of creating an eBook library using Thinkific, a versatile platform that allows you to not only create courses but also house a collection of eBooks. 

Start by creating eBooks with Designrr or Canva:

To start building your eBook library, you first need to create the eBooks themselves. There are several tools available, but we recommend using Designrr and Canva. 

Designrr is especially powerful as it allows you to transform your existing content into eBooks and embed flipbooks, creating an immersive read-only library experience. Canva offers numerous template libraries that can help you design stunning eBooks.

Choose Your eBook Library Approach 

When creating an eBook library, it’s beneficial to offer both a read-only version and a downloadable version to provide flexibility for your readers. 

By offering a read-only version, readers can access the eBooks directly from the library. Additionally, you can provide a downloadable version as an upsell opportunity for your audience.

Setting Up the eBook Library in Thinkific 

Now that you have your eBooks ready, it’s time to delve into Thinkific and create a course that will house your eBook library. Thinkific offers different lesson types that you can utilise for your eBook library. 

For straight downloads, you can use the download PDF lesson, making the eBook easily accessible for your readers. 

If you prefer a read-only method with embedded flipbooks, you can use a text lesson and insert the flipbook embed code from Designrr into the lesson. 

For a more engaging experience, you can also incorporate video lessons, complete with introductions, eBook content, and even quizzes.

Designing the Landing Page 

To showcase your eBook library effectively, create a landing page that highlights the curriculum using Thinkific’s curriculum module. Organise the eBooks into categories or modules based on their types, making it easier for readers to navigate and choose the books they want to explore. Within each module, load the individual eBooks as separate lessons, allowing readers to see the full range of books available in the library.

Marketing Your eBook Library 

Once your eBook library is set up, it’s crucial to market it effectively.

Share it with your newsletter subscribers, write compelling social media posts, and connect with potential students by using tools like Meet Edgar to schedule and automate your social media promotion. 

Take advantage of the evergreen nature of an eBook library to ensure continuous visibility and engagement.

Expanding and Growing Your eBook Library 

To keep your eBook library interesting and engaging, it’s a good idea to add new eBooks on a regular basis. You can encourage readers to subscribe for ongoing access to the latest releases, and offer them annual or monthly access plans. 

By doing so, you can generate recurring revenue and provide added value to your audience by constantly expanding the content available in your library.
