Download Pages (That Do NOT Collect Emails)
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 here.
If you prefer an overview and not a step-by-step this in-depth, find that here.
- Click the Add button at the top of your dashboard and select Add New Download Page.
- Select the book you want to send to readers from the drop-down menu.
- Click “No, just let them download the book”.
- Complete the form.
- Download Page Name: This is a convenient reference for you. Example: “Pride and Prejudice link for Facebook ad”.
- Expiration Date: Your link will expire at 11:59 PM PST on the date you select. You can easily edit this field later.
- Download Limit: This is the total number of times the book can be downloaded. Example: A download limit of 50 will allow 50 people to download your book.
- Page Title: This is what the internet browser tab will display above your page.
- Heading 1: Use a great tagline to grab your reader’s attention. Keep this short and punchy.
- Heading 2: This is a smaller font than Heading 1.

- Page Text: You can leave this blank, use your book description, or use custom text on your download page. If you leave it blank or use custom text, you will need to come back to the download page anytime you want to edit the text on the page. If you use your book description, any changes to your book’s text will automatically sync to your download page(s).
