Download a FREE Book Preview Divi Landing Page Layout Including Anchor Links & CTAs

Whether you’re selling a physical book or an e-book, having an effective landing page for it can do wonders. You can approach this landing page the traditional way, or you can turn it into a book preview landing page. A book preview landing page allows people to read certain parts or chapters of your book in advance. It’s also equipped with anchor links that make navigating through the different parts or chapters seamless. To top it off, you also want to put a CTA in the spotlight that’ll drive traffic to wherever you’re selling your book.

In this tutorial, we’ll recreate a stunning book preview landing page from scratch with Divi. You’ll also be able to download the layout JSON for free if you want to add it to your website right away.

Let’s get to it!
