If you have a high resolution PDF of your magazine, brochure or newspaper, it is a simple process to convert this PDF to flipbook format. All you need to do is create an account in our browser based portal (a 1-step process) then drag and drop your PDF in.

Once the automatic conversion is completed in just a few minutes, you simply copy and paste widget code to embed your flipbook onto your website, or to share via social media.

Track your flipbook usage with comprehensive analytics

A flipbook created with Realview is tracked in several ways, but the easiest and most comprehensive is through Google Analytics. By simply entering your Google analytics UA code, all reader behavior is recorded so you can see exactly how your readers are interacting with your flipbook. All of the basics such as hits, visits and time spent are recorded, but Realview takes the analytics a step further, recording things such as:

  • Page turns
  • Page zooms
  • Which hyperlinks were clicked
  • Each time the back issues, all pages, help or a share buttons is pressed
  • Search terms readers are entering
  • Which pages are being printed
