How I use Designrr
With my website, Your Entrepreneur Resources, I have long blog posts with a lot of information, going into details about a lot of different aspects of online business. I have transformed a lot of these blog posts into ebooks using Designrr and allow people to download the eBook inside the blog post.
I was able to easily import my blog post through Google docs or the link, choose the template that I use for these eBooks, adjust any element I want, then export it. Then, I create a cover on Canva and put them together, along with an about page.
Designrr makes the process very simple since it only takes a few minutes for me to import my existing content, then a few more minutes to customise the content.
For other products and lead magnets that have less text and more design elements, I mainly use Canva but as I mentioned earlier, it takes a lot of time to import a text-based content into Canva. You would have to manually adjust each page. Designrr makes these tasks very easy.
- Great way to repurpose your existing content to grow your email list, reach more people and generate more income
- Many different templates for you to choose from
- Built-in library of stock images available for you to crop, resize and use
- Convert your content directly into PDF, Kindle format (Mobi) and epub format
- Brand your materials easily with the global settings function
- Turn your podcasts and videos into show notes and transcripts through the transcription function
- Start monetising by selling your ebooks
- Create attractive 3D cover and mock creator instantly
- Not the smoothest experience with the UX since there are sometimes glitches
- You can choose multiple elements at the same time so it can take extra time to edit multiple elements
- Designerr is great for transforming your content into eBooks but you won’t be able to create very unique designs. One tip I have for this is creating a background that ties in with your brand through a tool like Canva, and use that as your background in Designrr

Designrr is a great tool to turn your existing blog content into an e-book, or even self-publishing an e-book from scratch. The ability to import content from a blog or word doc is a huge plus, and their review tools can be extremely helpful in making sure that your layout is correct and that you are maximizing the use of space on the page. The UI is a little bit clunky which is a drawback, and most of the designs are simple, so you will probably not end up with a product that sets itself aside from the rest in that manner, but if you are confident in what you have on the page and are comfortable with your book looking like a book it’s a strong tool to accomplish that goal.
