If you’ve been marketing online for more than 5 minutes, you’ll know that lead magnet, eBooks and reports are powerful ways to build your list or sell directly for profit. 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. Digital books are still an awesome way to attract traffic and sales for almost any type of business.
But you’ll also know they’re a serious headache to create too. All that writing, designing, and formatting… RIGHT. Enough already!
That’s why a new product recently caught my attention — it’s called Sqribble and it’s an online tool that instantly creates professional eBooks, reports, whitepapers, and other types of digital books with a few clicks or taps.
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.
Sqribble is different. It’s packed with professional templates, seriously good-looking covers, and surprisingly, is totally bug-free. In fact, the whole process of creating an eBook with Sqribble is satisfyingly easy and smooth.
Sqribble is a versatile tool, with tons more features I found useful. For example, here’s what else Sqribble can do:
- Automatic table of contents
- Automatic headers and footers
- Drag and drop design
- Automatic pagination
- Add or delete pages
- 300+ Google Fonts
- Add your own media
- 50 eBook templates (covering 15 different niches)
- 10 different eBook themes (1 click changes color scheme of book)
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, it’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 are 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.
For this you can choose from the below 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 it as a 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.
Benefits with Sqribble:
- Tons of excellent eBook templates
- Professional page layouts
- Automatic content
- 3D cover creator (available with Pro Version)
- Flipbook creator (available with Pro Version)
- Free commercial agency + website included!
Who is it for?
Sqribble is most suited for freelancers, independent internet marketers, small marketing agencies and small business owners who want to create lead magnets, publish Kindle books, create and sell eBooks, or publish whitepapers.
If you’re also looking to create an additional income you’ll be pleased to know that also included is a commercial agency license to use Sqribble for client work, offering eBook creation services, with the ability to create unlimited eBooks which you can sell and keep all the profits!
They also give you a ready-built agency website with a pre-filled portfolio that you can upload to any domain for instant authority so that you can show it off to any new potential clients to get work. (Professional websites like this would cost you at least $600 alone, so it’s really good value.)
Also included is an in-built “Client feedback tool” to collaborate with clients on eBook projects more easily (I love this feature).
Testimonials of Sqribble Users:

Pricing of Sqribble:
There have been plenty of eBook creator tools in the past, but I haven’t seen any that make the entire process as smooth and quick as Sqribble. It’s surprisingly glitch-free (most low-priced tools like this are buggy as hell) and it’s packed with some really cool features.
The templates are very nice looking, the layouts are professional and the fact you can automatically add content makes this a must-have for anyone who’s tired of spending hours slaving over book design, writing content, and screwing around with formatting.
The icing on the cake is the commercial license which is included. Normally vendors charge extra for this, so it’s a huge value-added bonus. The additional provided done-for-you agency website is just over-delivery.
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. He’s known for creating high-quality professional solutions and I expect no less from Sqribble.
If you’re planning to create eBooks, reports, or Kindle books in the near future, you owe it to yourself — and your sanity — to pick this up as it’s a tool that you’ll definitely need in your business.
