I am really excited to be able to write this full Sqribble software review because as many of you know, I am a big fan of K Money Mastery. K Money Mastery is the system developed by Stefan Pylarinos that allows you to build a Kindle eBook publishing empire, even if you’ve never written a word in your life.
However, one thing I thought was missing was a way to write your own eBooks quickly instead of outsourcing it to someone else. I believe that the new Sqribble software developed by Adeel Chowdhry solves this problem.
My Full Sqribble Software Review
In this review, I’m going to try and tell you what it is, how it works, who it’s for, the dreaded upsells (actually, for a change, these upsells are worth it) and anything else I can think of. At the end, I’m also going to tell you what I don’t like about it, so be sure to read till the bottom of the post so you know everything.
What Is Sqribble?
Sqribble is a brand new cloud-based software that lets you ‘write’ eBooks, reports, whitepapers and anything else you fancy quickly and easily. It is chock full of helpful things like templates of the top 15 Kindle niches, eBook covers and so on. In fact, all the extras in Sqribble are one of the main reasons I like it so much. Although, it’s also one of the things that is a bit annoying, but more of that later too.
The Sqribble Features
Let’s have a look at just a few of the extra features you get with Sqribble and I think you’ll see what I mean.
This is, of course, one of the main reasons to get Sqribble. Well, it was for me. All you need to do is provide the content and Sqribble will do the rest. There are four ways to provide content:
– Pull content from any URL
– Copy and paste it directly
– Extract from a Word doc
– Use Sqribble’s own library
As you can imagine, this is pretty huge. I’m just thinking about PDF bribes everyone uses to get emails. You can have a new bribe every month. In fact, you could have one every week. Hell, if you wanted to offer a new bribe every day, it would be possible with this software.
Excellent eBook Covers
If you’ve ever tried other software to create eBook covers, you have probably felt extremely underwhelmed by the whole process; I know I have. The eBook covers that Sqribble creates are good enough to publish on Kindle.
However, one thing a don’t like is that there is a limit to what you can create vis-a-vis designs and colours. Mind you, I may just be being a bit picky here as it’s pretty unrealistic to expect unlimited eBook covers and colours.
This is one of my favourite things about Sqribble; you can turn your “flat” books into interactive flipbooks. If you have an eBook reader that turns your boring eBook page into a page that turns over like a real book, that’s a flipbook.
I’ve always liked flipbooks because they make an eBook seem less like an eBook and more like a paper book. True, this is hardly a mind-boggling addition to the world of eBooks, but I like it and since it’s so popular, having a flipbook feature is a real plus.
Please note: this is not included in the price but is part of one of the upgrades.
The Psychology of Flipbooks
The reason why flipbooks are important is that, apart from the fact that people like the format, it’s also been proven that readers are more likely to finish a flipbook than a ‘traditional’ eBook. And this is important because you are probably interested in Sqribble as a way to offer freebies.
If you have ever downloaded a freebie eBook, report, whitepaper or whatever, you will have almost certainly have noticed that the offer or call-to-action (CTA) are at the end. Because flipbooks are interactive and people enjoy ‘turning’ the pages over, more of your readers will get to the end, which means more clicks for your CTA.
Oh, and I nearly forgot. You can add your flipbook to your own website. In this way, for people who object to giving out their email, this allows you to still get your offer in front of them. Not as powerful as getting an email but still better than not getting an email. And Sqribble gives you the code to add to your website saving extra hassle as well.
What Else Can Sqribble Do?
Here are some of the things your Sqribble Software can do. Please note that some of the items in the list below may need to be bought as part of an upgrade. I’ll talk about the upgrades later so don’t worry about that at the moment.
– Drag and drop design
– Automatic headers and footers
– Add or delete pages
– Automatic pagination
– Insert your own media
– Automatic table of contents
– 300+ Google Fonts
– 50 eBook templates
– 10 different eBook themes
– Import content from a URL
– Manually add content
As you can see, there are lots of lovely features which is why it’s one of the best eBook creators on the market.
Who Is Sqribble for?
Sqribble is for anyone who wants to create content. If you’re a freelancer, internet marketer, marketing agency, or small business owner who wants to give away lead magnets, create and sell Kindle eBooks, or publish whitepapers, then this is for you.
A rather nifty addition to Sqribble is that you get a commercial license with it so if you would like to offer your services on Fiverr, I reckon you could easily turn it into a nice little business.
To help you with this, Sqribble Software gives you a ready-built agency website, with a built-in client feedback tool. It has a pre-filled portfolio that you can upload to any domain for instant authority so that you can show it off to any new potential clients to get work. Professional websites like this would cost a fortune so it’s a really good extra.
Why Are There Always Bloody Upsells?
One thing that really annoys me about the digital product market, in general, is the bloody upsells. I just wish that when I bought a product, it would come with everything it says it has in the sales video. Or that they make it clear that some of the features in the sales videos are not included in the base price.
Now, I’m not blaming Adeel for doing what everyone else does. I expect that product creators like Adeel would be just as happy to say, “Here’s my product. You get everything for $399. Click the button below.” But Adeel knows it doesn’t work like that the same as everyone else. Anyhoo, I digress. Let’s continue.
What Are the Upsells?
I’m not going to try and sell you these because I’m not trying to sell you Sqribble. I’m just going to give you a quick overview and if you decide to buy Sqribble, you can make good choices about the upsells afterwards.
By the way, the one-time price of Sqribble itself is $67 but there is normally a coupon that knocks another $20 off. Obviously, the money is being made in the following upsells.
1. Sqribble professional – $97
150 more professional eBook templates, graphics and even more ready-made content for all kinds of niches. More variety and content for heavy users.
2. Sqribble Prime (Subscription – $47)
15 premium “limited edition” new eBook templates added to your Sqribble dashboard every month. Makes you stand out from other users. Good for moderate users.
3. 2-in-1 Upgrade ($77)
Sqribble Fantasia 3D
Unlocks a 3D cover creation tool inside your dashboard. Great for more attention and making your books look and feel more “real.”
Make your eBooks more interactive and animated. They can be linked to from anywhere online, as well as embedded on web pages with a single piece of code.
4. Auto Job Finder software ($197)
Automatically find related jobs across various freelance websites and notify you so that you can fulfil them. A very nice time saver and money earner if you’d like to turn Sqribble into a business.
Let me just say that if you have the money, I’d get the first three and if you’re feeling really rich or you feel like this could be the business for you, then I’d go for all four. That is less than $500 (plus the monthly subscription) for what is basically a genuine business-in-a-box.
What I Don’t Like About Sqribble
Apart from the upsells in general, which I have already ranted about, my biggest complaint about Sqribble Software is that the sales video needs to be clearer about what you get and more importantly, what you don’t get, for the initial price. I know that Adeel is only doing what everyone else does, but I wish someone would break the circle of non-disclosure here and be more honest about what’s what.
It doesn’t work well with Chrome extensions. Annoying as this is, the easiest solution is to use a different browser. And if you’re like me and love Grammarly, then you can just put the content created into the Grammarly app, do all the corrections, and then paste it back into the eBook. Not a perfect solution but it’ll do.
There’s no autosave, which seems like a very bizarre omission in this day and age. Again, the best solution is to work outside the app for editing content. By the way, there is a pop-up that er… pops up to remind you to save your work every five minutes or so.
Would I Recommend Sqribble?
Yes, I would but with some caveats. If you remember, right at the beginning of this post I said that this could replace outsourcing eBook creation, which may be particularly attractive if you are involved in Stefan Pylarinos’s K Money Mastery. Check out my review of K Money Mastery here if you haven’t read it already.
Well, I don’t think that’s completely true. You will still need someone to write the content. However, the rest you can definitely do yourself, so not a bad addition to the K Money Mastery program, but not perfect.
It’s also great if you’re looking for content for free reports, ebooks whitepapers etc. to give away as bribes. It’s also great if you would like to set yourself up as a business, creating eBooks for others. In fact, if I were interested in creating a new business for myself, this is probably how I would approach Sqribble right from the beginning.
If you’re planning to create eBooks, reports or Kindle books in the near future, or are looking for a new business venture, then you could do a great deal worse than buying Sqribble.
