This type of download page will allow anyone that obtains your link to download your book. We won’t collect any reader data, which means less friction for your readers. If you want BookFunnel to collect a valid email address before allowing someone to download your book, learn more about giveaway pages.
If you prefer an overview and not a step-by-step this in-depth, find that here.
