In this article, I am going to show how to create an eBook in Designrr using your existing blog content.
Let's get started.
How to Create an eBook in Designrr
To start creating an eBook in Designrr, you need to have a premium account. Paid plans start at $29/month.
However, if you sign up using the special link given below, you can get the Standard Plan at a one-time payment of only $27, instead of $29/month. The offer is for limited period only.
After creating an account at Designrr, you need to follow the below mentioned steps to create eBook.
As I have already said, you can convert your existing content into eBooks. So, here, I am going to show you how the content of a blog article can be imported and converted into an eBook.
Here are the steps that you need to follow:
First log in to your Designrr account. After log in, you'll see the Designrr Dashboard as shown in the screenshot below.
Now click on Create eBook.
Since Designrr can import content from multiple sources, you need to select the exact source in this step.

If you need to import content from sources like YouTube, Podcast or a video, you'll need to upgrade to higher-tier plan.
Since we're going to use content from our blog article, you need to select the Import from Blog Post option.
After selecting the option - Import from Blog post/s or URL, you'll need to enter the URL of your blog article. See the below screenshot.
Enter the URL as shown in below screenshot. Please remember that Designrr allows to import content from multiple URLs.
So, if you need to create eBook by adding content from more than one blog article, you just need to enter the URL and select Fetch. Then repeat the same process for the next URL.
See the image given below where I have entered the URL of one of my blog post. After entering the URL, you need to click on the Fetch button.
After fetching the URL, click on the Next button.
In the next step, you will need to select a template for your eBook.
Designrr offers lots of pre-built templates with unique designs in different categories like - advertising, beauty, blogging, business, copywriting, digital marketing, eCommerce and more.
These templates are fully customizable which means you can change or edit each elements of the templates - font, background, margin, padding, etc.

By default, the page size of each templates is set to Letter.
If you want to change the size of template, select Page Size from the top right and select the appropriate size - Letter, A3, A4, A5, Legal, Square.
Now select the template of your choice. When you hover the mouse over any template, you will see two options - Use and Preview.
If you want to preview any template, just select the Preview option. To start editing any template, select the Use option.
When you select any template, Designrr Editor will open (see the below screenshot).
