Customize New Download Pages
When you create a new download page, it will default to the BookFunnel 2017 layout and White/Gray Theme. You can easily customize the background color and accent color to find a combination that compliments your book cover.

- Select the appropriate email option.
- Complete the form.

- Click the Accent Color dropdown to select a color. The accent color will be applied to the Get My Book button and all text in Heading 1.
- Click the Preview button next to Landing Page Settings to see how the colors you selected look with your book cover. If the first color combos don’t quite work, try again!
- Click Save And Close when you are finished.
- Your download page link will appear at the top of the Download Page Details screen. You can always view and edit the page details by clicking the book’s title under Books and then clicking on the name of your download page.
Customize An Existing Page
Customizing your current download page is as simple as 1..2..3(… 4)!
- Click Books on your BookFunnel dashboard
- Click the book title
- Click Edit next to the page name you want to edit (it looks like a tiny pencil to the left page name). If you don’t see a Page Layout dropdown after clicking the Edit icon, make sure you are editing your page and not your book.
- Click Landing Page Settings to open the panel
- Select BookFunnel 2017 from the Page Layout dropdown and then have fun trying out the new backgrounds and accent colors!

This one-minute video will walk you through it step-by-step:
Use Italics and Bold Text To Add Emphasis To Your Headings
You can add emphasis to certain words or phrases in your heading1 and heading2.
To use italics, add a * before and after the text in your headings or book description. Italics example:
She *desperately* scanned the horizon.
To bold certain words or phrases, add ** before and after the text. Bold example:
This baby needs a nap **right now**.
(The * is only in the examples above to make clear how to add them to your heading. They will not be displayed on the book page.)
Center Your Headings
To center your heading1 or heading2, use -= at the beginning of your heading and =- at the end. Center example:
-=This heading is now centered! Oh will wonders never cease?=-
