Advice and answers from the Beacon Team

Beacon allows anyone to create beautiful, interactive marketing eBooks. And it’s now even easier with the Wordpress plugin.

I’m Kevin and I’m going to show you how you can use Wordpress to create and promote an original book in just a couple of minutes.

The Beacon plugin works by combining legacy blog posts into a single, high quality eBook.

So the first thing you’ll need to do is choose which posts you want to include in your book. You can search for a specific post or you can filter by category.

So you might want to create a book based on your most popular articles, or a particular topic that you’ve written a lot about.

When you’re happy with the content just click ‘create eBook’ and this is where the fun starts.

The book has now been created and on the right hand side here you get a preview of what the finished product looks like.

And on the left hand side here you can change the content.

You can redesign the book with the click of a button and even add different images from the free stock photo library.

Under the pages tab you can see all the articles that we imported from Wordpress. We can edit this content or just leave it as it is.

We recommend that you combine your blog posts with additional pages to bulk up your book as well. In this example I’m adding a quick table of contents page.

Now let’s pick a colour scheme that suits the rest of the book.

And while we’re here we may as well add some fancy typography.

And since this layout is a bit boring I’ll change that too.

And I want to reorder these pages so the table of contents comes right after the cover page.

Ok, so now that I’m happy with the content and design of the book, let’s publish it.

And there you have it. In just a couple of minutes we’ve created an incentive for people to join your mailing list which will help boost conversions in no time.
