Flipsnack Review

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: We are using it to display our print magazine online to web visitors and overally have had a good experience with Flipsnack.

Pros:

Very easy to get started. We used several other products that were more expensive, less features and harder to use before finding Flipsnack.

Cons:

Nothing yet that we have found but we are just beginning to use it at scale. If I were to pick something I would like to have more options it would be on gating it. We use it on a membership site so I have had to find ways to gate the pages themselves instead of the reader.

Hi Thomas, Thank you for the kind review. It would be very helpful for us to know more about how you would like to gate access to your online magazine. Who knows, perhaps we'll find a solution! Please email us at [email protected]

Easy to Use and Affordable

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: We find it easy and overall affordable to provide our clients with these magazines. It is a great value add for us. Additionally it allows us to present our marketing material in a unique and upscale way

Pros:

The creation/editing of magazines is really easy, and I love the features that are now in editing (e.g. hyperlinking). Once created the magazines are easily shareable and you can whitelabel the sharing and magazine. And there are no ads when you share, which is important to our clients. It is easy to search for and organize magazines.

Cons:

The enterprise pricing/setup for additional magazines could use modification for companies that have/keep many magazines on hand. We have to go in and delete old magazines to keep the number down to 1000. The cost to add more magazines was too pricey for us.

Comments: It has a pretty below average experience.

Pros:

It is fairly ease to use. But some features have major hiccups.

Cons:

I do not like the fact that no matter how many times I upgrade their is always an issue with fully customizing to our brand.

their customer service rocks

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: I have been using it for almost two years and definetly they have been improving their UX.

Pros:

Definetely their customer service. They are aware of every issue that you might have until it is solved.

Cons:

You cant use shortcuts for underlined or italics, you have to select the text and then change it. Other times the whole paragraph changes so you have to undo and redo.

Great for Sending Qualifications and Proposals

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: Flipsnack has provided a visually appealing way to present our firm's qualifications. Sharing it is simple. Our project executives love having the option to send a PDF as well as an interactive link to prospects outside of our four walls.

Pros:

I love that I can send a interactive and engaging presentation of qualifications document in an easy link. Creating the flip book is quick and easy. I like that I can keep links private so I can share it only with those I wish to access it.

Cons:

The ability to edit pages or add pages after publication is a little clunky. Usually I simply delete and start over if there are substantial changes to pages within each document.

Alternatives Considered: Issuu

Reasons for Switching to Flipsnack: Pricing for Flipsnack was better than Issuu.
