For those of you that don’t know, The Book Designer is one of the top self-publishing sites out there. If you want advice on eBook covers, eBook marketing, or formatting eBooks then this is the place you want to have on your bookmark bar.
It’s that first point they really do the best on, however – eBook covers. And that’s the topic of my guest post today, which is called “Using Freelancer Contests for Your eBook Covers.”
So what’s it about? It’s about using freelance cover designers from all over the world to get your eBook covers dirt cheap. This is how I get the vast majority of my eBook covers, and it works for me.
Well, if you want to call working the ability to get your book on Amazon. When it comes to sales, maybe not so much.
I got an email from someone a week ago, a cover designer. She had found my site and thought to mention that my poor eBook covers were likely the reason for my poor sales. She said that if I was just using a professional designer and not making the covers myself my sales would surely improve.
Maybe. But I haven’t made my own book covers since…oh, probably February, 2013, a month after I first got started.
Instead I use Freelancer, and perhaps those are just a little too homemade for some of you.
Sorry. But remember, you’re not buying my books anyways. Nope, you’re coming here for free advice, and if you want that today, you’ll have to go The Book Designer.
