If you’ve written a book in the past or currently writing a book – at some stage in the process a huge aspect is creating the book cover.
There are some tips I want to give you in order to evaluate a cover, so it makes the most impact for your readers and potential buyers.
1. Does it grab the readers attention?
-Color? Font? Big headlines?
(99 Designs is a great tool for designing your own book cover, or you can try Fiverr.com for hiring someone else to create it for you)
2. Make a clear statement about what the book is about.
-100 Stock Trading Tips = clear about what the book’s topic is about
3. How will this book benefit the reader?
-Readers will ask themselves, will buying this book help me achieve something? Will it provide education? How-to instructions? Is there a value to me by purchasing this book?
If you manage to do all three of things with your cover and convince the reader in the short time frame, you have to catch their attention – you will have succeeded in crafting a great cover.
