Let’s face it, we all want more traffic, more subscribers and more daily sales. And there’s one simple solution that still works like gangbusters for this — eBooks.
Whether it’s a powerful lead magnet such as a free report or whitepaper, or a Kindle book that you sell daily… digital books are still an awesome way to attract traffic and sales for almost any type of business.
But there’s just one problem — creating them can cause all kinds of headaches. Writing, formatting, designing… it can take days or even weeks to create an eBook, plus a steep learning curve and a handful of expensive tools you’ll need to master… before you’ve even hit publish!
But there’s a brand-new tool on the market that promises to change all that.
It’s called Sqribble.
What is Sqribble?
Sqribble is a cloud-based tool that allows you to create eBooks (reports, whitepapers, etc.) in seconds. It uses ready—made templates and drag n’ drop design features that make self-publishing your eBooks a breeze.
How does it work?
When you log into Sqribble, you’ll see a bunch of eBook templates to choose from. These are all based on different categories, so you’ll need to find one that matches your market/topic/niche.
Once you’ve selected the template you want to use, you simply click “view” to see how your eBook will look (don’t worry, we’ll add your content next.)
In this view screen, you can see how the book will be laid out and get a feel for the style. If you don’t like it, you can always go back and choose another template (there’s 50 templates to choose from, and you can also edit the templates too, in all kinds of ways.)
You’ll notice that the layouts and designs are very slick. They look like professional publications!
Next, you’ll be asked where you want to source your content for the book. You can choose:
— Grab from a URL
— Start from scratch
— Copy and paste manually
— Upload Word File
— Start from Article Collection
Let’s take a closer look at these options.
— Grab from a URL
This allows you to insert any URL you want, and Sqribble will automatically pull the content from that page and insert into your book. It strips the html code and only inserts the text from the page. This is my fave method, because it saves a ton of time, and allows you to use expert content (with credits) so you can target topics and niches you’re not an expert in!
— Start from scratch
As it sounds, this option allows you to enter your content like you’d enter it into a Word document. You just type straight into the page.
— Copy and paste manually
This allows you to copy content from anywhere you want, and paste into the book, where the book will format and lay it out for you professionally.
— Upload Word File
You can get Sqribble to pull your content straight from a Word document, stripping out any code or weird formatting.
— Start from Article Collection
Here you can extract content from Sqribble’s huge library of private label articles which you can use for free, without crediting authors or linking to the source. It’s another great way to quickly fill your book with content, for free!
Finally, you’ll move to an editing screen, where you can resize text, move content around, edit text directly, add media, links, lists, call to action areas, new pages, and a whole bunch of other options for customizing the look and feel of individual pages or the entire book.
You can even add new pages that use a totally different layout to the rest of your book, giving you a huge amount of flexibility and endless options for your book.
While editing, another thing I really liked was the Themes option. With a single click, you can instantly change the color theme and font style of your entire book. It’s like giving your book a new “skin” and it’s just one more feature that sets Sqribble apart from the other tools out there.
Finally, when you’re ready to publish, you hit the little “Generate eBook” button in the top right corner of the screen and voila, your book is now ready!
You can either open the book in a browser to preview it quickly or save as PDF.
Is Sqribble right for you?
If you’re already creating lead magnets or eBooks for sale, then I have no doubt that Sqribble is going to save you hours of work and tons of money on freelancers (if you outsource the design or writing side of it.)
For that reason, I truly believe that Sqribble is well worth the investment and perfectly suited for most small to medium size businesses, especially self-publishers and info marketers.
It’s also a great tool to use if you’re a freelancer or agency, working with clients to create professional eBooks (includes commercial rights, plus a done for you agency website, which is a big bonus!). You could easily charge $100’s for this service, and with Sqribble, you could get the work done in way less time than it wouldn’t normally take you.
— Some of my favorite features are locked behind upsells (3D covers and Flipbook feature)
— When inserting content from a URL, you need to cite the URL source and/or credit the original author of the content, if it’s not your own (this isn’t really Sqribble’s fault — it’s just the law!)
— Easy to use
— Glitch free
— Unlimited use (one-time payment)
— Tons of excellent eBook templates
— Professional page layouts
— Automatic content
— 3D cover creator (available through upsells)
— Flipbook creator (available through upsells)
— Free commercial agency + website included!
A one-time $47 (later will be increased to $197).
About the creator
Sqribble has been developed by Adeel Chowdhry, who is a well-known internet entrepreneur and best seller, with over ten years of experience and has previously created worldwide hits such as Pixel Studio FX which sold tens of thousands of units all around the world.

There’s no doubt, Sqribble is a powerful eBook creation tool. Unlike other tools, it’s packed with everything you need to start cranking out professional looking books, reports, whitepapers and more in seconds.
With automatic content, drag n’ drop editing, plus a host of templates and designs ready to customize, you’d struggle to find a more seamless eBook publishing tool than this.
Being cloud based is a big bonus too. No need to download any software that clogs up your computer.

For that reason alone, it gets my full seal of approval.
If you’re like most online marketers, small business owners, bloggers or
other website owners, then you’re always looking for ways to increase
your conversions and sales. After all, it’s just smart business to make
the most of your traffic. If you can boost your ROI, then you’ll be
putting more money in your pocket at the end of every day.
Now here’s the thing…
don’t do one grand gesture in order to increase your conversions and
sales. Instead, you take a series of small steps. And collectively,
these small steps add up to BIG results.
What sort of steps should you take? Below you’ll find five surefire ways to boost your conversions and sales.
And the best part?
can implement every single one of these ideas using one simple website
feature: attention bars. More on that in just a few moments. But first,
take a look at these ideas…
#1. Present an exit offer.
lot of marketers figure if a visitor is leaving their site, then that
visitor wasn’t really targeted or interested. And that assumption is a
Just because a visitor is leaving
doesn’t mean they’re saying “no” to everything. They’ve just said “no”
to whatever they’ve seen so far. And if you dangle the right offer in
front of them, you might just get an enthusiastic “YES!”
Let’s suppose someone is looking at your $97 software offer. They’re interested, but maybe it’s not in their budget just yet.
So, what happens?
they leave your sales page, they’re gone for good. They probably won’t
be back. And yet, this is a qualified prospect who is interested in what
you’re selling. They just haven’t seen the right offer yet.
Here’s what you do: when they leave your sales page, make them an offer they can’t refuse. For example:
• Give them a free trial. • Give them a low-cost trial. • Offer a “lite” version of the software at a reduced price. • Give them a discount coupon for the full version of the software.
Now what does your prospect say? “YES!” And you just saved a sale and created a customer!
#2. Get visitors on your list.
is pretty basic, but it’s a strategy that plenty of marketers still
overlook. Simply put, you need to work hard to get as many of your
visitors on your mailing list as possible. That way, you can follow up
with them via email over time to close the sale.
person leaving your site isn’t saying, “no.” They might be saying, “not
yet,” or “maybe.” And when you get them on your mailing list, you can
turn that “maybe” into a definite yes.
#3. Offer an exciting bonus.
you’re an affiliate, then it’s no secret you’re competing against
hundreds or even thousands of other affiliates who are all selling the
exact same thing.
Think about that for a moment.
“Hey, buy this thing through this link” isn’t going to be enough to
pocket those commissions. To meet that goal, you need to do two things:
a good reputation in the niche. Obviously, this isn’t something you do
in a short amount of time. This is an ongoing task that requires you to
promote good products, do so in an honest way, and really help your

second one is really effective, and it’s something you can start doing
immediately. Simply offer a related, valuable bonus that’s in
high-demand, and you’ll see your conversion rates get a huge boost. And
for obvious reasons – people like to get the most bang for their buck,
so they’re going to use the affiliate link that gives them more value
for their money.
#4. Upsell your customers.
got a prospect sitting on your order form with their credit card in
hand. Prospects don’t get much hotter than this. He’s in the buying
mood. And that’s why now is the very best time to suggest that he add
something to his order. In other words, offer an upsell or cross-sell of
a product that will enhance the use and/or enjoyment of the main
For example, let’s suppose you have someone who’s
ordering a meal-planning app from you for the purposes of losing weight.
Offer an accompanying diet guide or low-calorie cookbook as a
cross-sell, and you’re sure to boost your average per-transaction price.
Here’s another idea for boosting conversions and sales…
#5. Display a countdown timer.
your prospects are interested in your offer. But for whatever reason,
they put off the actual purchase. They bookmark your page and tell
themselves they’ll come back to it later.
You can guess what happens, right?
“later” never comes. The person loses interest in your product once the
excitement of the sales pitch wears off. Or life gets in the way, and
they totally forget about your offer.
What’s the solution to saving these sales?
need to stir up a sense of urgency. You need to make people feel like
they need to purchase RIGHT NOW… or risk missing out. Yes, you need to
create a little fear.
You know what creates just the right amount
of order-boosting fear? A limited time offer. And to make it even more
powerful, you can match this offer with a countdown timer that’s
visually ticking down the hours, minutes and seconds left before the
offer expires. It’s a powerful way to boost the sense of urgency – and
Now here’s the best part about all of these ideas…
You can implement every single one of these ideas using an attention bar. Specifically:
1.Put an offer in an attention bar that appears when the visitor is intending to leave your site.
2.Display your opt-in offer using a well-placed attention bar (preferably one that appears after a delay).
your affiliate bonus offer in an attention bar, and then overlay this
attention bar directly on the sales page. (Yes, that’s completely
possible when using iFrame technology.)
4.Place your upsell offer in an attention bar on the order form to really call attention to it.
a countdown timer in an attention bar that displays on a sales page, or
even on some other page of your site to advertise a flash sale or other
In short, using attention bars is a GREAT way to
boost your conversion and sales. Because not only can you use these
attention bars in the five ways described above, but you can put them to
work for you in countless other ways as well. You can use them to:
• Reiterate a big benefit. • Insert a powerful testimonial. • Place videos or images in them to draw attention. • Use countdown timers to create urgency on any sort of offer. • Persuade prospects to join your list. • Announce new products, sales or news. • Direct prospects to related offers. • Encourage people to request more information.
Simply put, attention bars work like crazy because they’re eye-catching without being eye sores!
But for a lot of marketers, this strategy poses a problem…
the average marketer or small business owner simply has no idea how to
create one of these bars. They don’t have the coding know-how. And even
those who know a bit about coding don’t know how to create
professional-looking bars that appear at specific times.
Now here’s the good news…
can start creating your own conversion-boosting attention bars in as
few as two minutes – no coding knowledge or skills required!
