Imagine you are browsing for ebook and you have to decide which one to buy only according to its title. Imagine each book only has the title letters on it and blank cover. How would you feel about books if no book has a nice professional ebook cover?
Well, the first thing that instantly comes to our mind is that we will have to read all the descriptions and pick a book according to that fact that it might interest us. A huge amount of people still do that and don’t judge a book by its cover, but we firmly believe that the very first impression a book makes is thanks to its cover. How many of you bought a book because it looked really nice? I know I did, many times!
Okay, so we know ebooks don’t have a physical cover and cannot be put in the same basket as physical books, but believe me when I say, ebook covers matter and if you are serious in your writings and want to succeed in online marketing your book and thus, make sales, you really need to start thinking how to get a professional ebook cover.
The first and most important thing is to be aware of all the great things a nice cover can achieve. If you want your ebook to stand out from the huge crowd of ebooks, you need to put some effort in developing it like a real pro.
Here are a couple of things to consider before deciding to get a nice professional ebook cover:
- it has to be related to the content
- has to have a composition that is in accordance to the book in a whole (for eg. textbooks should have a simple design, novels should be more eye-catching and interesting)
- has to reflect the personality of the book
Think about your ideal reader and what ebook cover could get his/her attention – is he serious, data-hungry or is looking for fun and engaging colors and designs? What image will encourage your reader to buy your book? Never choose an ebook cover because you like it and you find it appealing – instead, determine your perfect reader (your target customer) and after some analysis and research, decide which type of cover would best suit your writings!
