DO JUDGE YOUR BOOK BY ITS COVER…EVERYONE ELSE WILL!
So you wrote a book? Congratulations!
I’m sure it’s an amazing book that deserves a great audience. But without a great title and an amazing cover, there’s little chance that people will discover the content you’ve worked so hard to create. Marketing can become an expensive exercise in futility unless the cover is properly designed in a way that attracts readers to click on your ad.
Authors often ask other authors for advice, but even though other authors use covers, they aren’t experts in cover design. They don’t understand how to use specific elements of cover design to attract the right audience. They don’t know the right colors and designs to use to appeal to readers who match your target demographic in terms of gender, age group, profession, or even religious point of view.
Would you ask a homeowner, with no specific training, to design their own house? You need an architect to do that.
YOUR COVER IS YOUR VISUAL ADVERTISMENT
To make it fly off the virtual shelves, your cover needs to have the perfect combination of art, graphics, and typography. This requires an in-depth understanding of your target audience, and especially, of advertising. That isn’t usually the skill set of a typical book designer either, because the true masters of this art and science work in the advertising industry for big companies that charge way too much for an indie author or a smaller publisher to afford.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOUR BOOK TO SELL
When I got into writing books, I was lucky I had a sister who had already conquered the world of advertising. Even without any prior audience, my first book hit bestselling status just two hours after being launched in 2016, and consistently maintained the title for two years almost all the time. After publishing more books and helping many authors achieve the same results, I asked my sister Jaromira to join me and help other great books sell with ease.
Jaromira has spent thirty years in advertising on an international level. Working with advertising giants like Young and Rubicam and for clients like IKEA and European television TV5, she reached the pinacle of her industry. When she sees a cover, she understands immediately who is attracted to the cover and where there may be errors in typography or graphic design.
There are a few ways in which we can help. If you come to us before your title is finalized, we can help you condense your title to convey the essence of your book, ensuring it contains the ideal number of characters and keywords.
If you already have an existing title, we can help you create the ideal cover to attract and sell to your target audience. We can guide you in the right direction to start the cover design, which you can then either create yourself or take to your graphic designer (on Fiverr you can find many for as little as $20). When your design is done, we give feedback, point out any errors, and give clear guidance and instructions for the next step.
You can also come to us with a few choices of your options for covers and we can help you pick one and finalize it to perfection. This way you can have the highest quality cover for a fraction of the cost. You will pay less than if you hired a professional book cover designing service, yet end up with a higher caliber cover designed to appeal to your ideal reader.
COVER DESIGN DIRECTIONS AND CRITIQUE $199
This option includes:
· EITHER three revisions of your existing cover
· OR directions for your future cover PLUS Two further revisions
Additional revisions are available at additional cost. In most situations, only two to three revisions are needed. Generally, we get back to you within 24-48 hours.
TITLE NAME AND COVER DESIGN DIRECTIONS $299
We will start working with you from the title of your book. The title will be taken in consideration for the future creation of your cover, and all keywords in the title will be maximized. After we have the title perfected, we move to cover design and offer everything in Cover Design Directions and Critique.
ALL DONE FOR YOU $499
This includes everything above, and also includes us finding the proper graphic designer and working with him or her directly on your behalf. You as the author will be cc’d on every email and can interject at any time, but you need not handle the details and nuances unless you want to. Let us take that burden off your hands!
CUSTOM DESIGN MADE BY JAROMIRA $999
If you would like to have Jaromira do your cover for you, she will personally design three covers from which you will select your favorite. Jaromira’s time is extremely limited, and this option is not available year-round, so please ask us first about the timeline. The custom design takes at least two weeks, and while it is the most professional approach to your cover, it is also the slowest due to Jaromira’s busy schedule.
