Huge List Of eBook Templates You Can Download for Free

eBooks are a tried and tested technique in any marketer’s tool kit, you can use them to attract customers to your website, turn them into real books, and monetise them in various ways. For a little bit of time and effort, a good eBook can have brilliant returns.

Providing you’re writing about a subject you’re knowledgeable about an eBook isn’t that difficult to create and can become an essential part of your content marketing strategy. The trickiest part of publishing your own eBook is the design work involved. I’ve put together a list of eBook templates you can download for free if design work isn’t your thing.

Free eBook Templates

The right design can make or break your eBook. If it looks rubbish people may be put off reading further than the first page. Humans are visual creatures – we like something pretty to look at. That doesn’t mean your eBook design needs to be complex or elaborate. A clean, simple design is often the best choice for eBooks as you want the reader to focus on the text.

However, getting the design right can be difficult if you aren’t a graphic designer, that’s why any marketers choose to use templates for their eBooks. It takes away a lot of time and hassle, leaving you to focus on creating engaging content instead.

The only downside to free eBook templates is that the designs can look a little samey. You won’t have a particularly unique design as many other businesses may have used the same template. Fret not though – many templates can be customised quite easily to include your business logo, brand colours etc.

Here is a list of all the places you can download free eBook templates.

HubSpot – there are 36 templates available for download here. HubSpot is a favourite of mine as they provide high-quality free resources.

Canva – is another favourite option of mine for creating eBooks. Canva has a range of templates available, and I love how customisable they are.

Convertful – offer a selection pack of eBooks for free download. The eBooks are categorised into four styles: 101 life hacks, case studies, how-to, and ultimate guide. There aren’t many but they’re easy to edit with PowerPoint.

eBook Tips & Tricks

Once you’ve got your template here are a few tips to help you make a brilliant eBook.

  1. Ensure your topic meets the needs of your audience. Do your research! Don’t guess what people want to read, take time to make sure you’re going to cover all of the main points readers want to learn about.
  2. Lay out text in digestible sections. Include chapters, and an index, and then break chapters down into smaller sections and paragraphs. Keep paragraphs to 50-100 words.
  3. Make sure your branding is prominent on the eBook but not overwhelming. You want readers to associate the content with your business but don’t overwhelm them with logos everywhere.
  4. Make sure you add images, graphics and tables to your eBook to break up text and help illustrate points.
  5. It’s a good idea to use statistics and quotes in an eBook to give your content more authority. If your template allows it, highlight these and make them stand out.
  6. Finally, make sure you include a call to action in your eBook. This can be throughout the content if it’s relevant but make sure you have a strong CTA at the end of the content.
