What is an Ebook?

Ebooks are a common type of content that many marketers use, often to help generate leads. They are generally longer-form than, say, blog posts and go into in-depth detail on a subject. Here’s an awesome ebook on how to write an ebook (so meta).


“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” by J.K. Rowling is available as an ebook. Instead of purchasing a physical copy of the book from a bookstore, you can download the ebook version from an online retailer or library.

Once downloaded, you can open the ebook on your e-reader, tablet, or smartphone using an e-reader app or software. You can then read the book digitally, flipping through pages, adjusting font size, and bookmarking pages as you would with a physical book.
