iBooks is a great collection of books, in an electronic form, not just PDF though. iBooks can be interactive, include dynamic polls, zoom-in-and-out functinality, embedded videos and much much more rich features that can form up a book which is so much more than just a book, which is a lot by itself anyway.
One idea is to create a book about your brand, informative and with all of the "things" you want your customers or potential customers to find, your products and services and much more. Of course you will need to stay true to the rule of what makes a book, a book. That is that the book must contain info, text, talk about something. Here then comes the second idea, to create technical manuals or educational books to be released by your brand in iBooks store, the complete and vast marketplace for the iBooks.

To create an iBook, you will need a Mac computer and the application called iBooks Author which is delivered from free via the Mac App Store. You will then need to decide on a free or paid publisher account and go through the iBooks author and publisher account creation via the iBooks Author application, accept the legal terms and finish the wizard.
iBooks is getting more and more popular, with Apple investing a great deal of time and effort to push this as a new service with similar importance to iTunes store. Knowing that the Apple ecosystem has a lot of users loyal to the platform, students and bookworms, you may want to enter the iBooks fair to approach another kind of audience, that of the mobile book reading enthousiats and soon, every Apple owner in the desktop and laptop world.
