Description

The process of creating eBooks is about to get more exciting!

Ebooks are great promotional or educational tools for your website, but most of them are rather humdrum, with nothing but white backgrounds and black text.

I'm going to show you how to easily spice up your ebook design using Powerpoint, Canva (free) and Photoshop. But don't worry if you don't have or know how to use Photoshop because you can get a free, 30-day trial and I'll explain how in the course.

(Photoshop is only used in one video and not necessary to create amazing designs. Powerpoint and Canva are really all you need and Canva is free.)

This is a very basic and quick course that you can finish in under 40 minutes. By the end of it, you will be able to confidently create various designs and templates for your future ebook projects.

Your audience is going to be amazed and your competitors will wonder how you did it!

If you're tired of publishing black and white ebooks, enroll in my course today!

Who is the target audience?
  • ebook authors who want a more stylish design
  • ebook authors who need inspiration for their next ebook layout

Owner of 2 Create a Website & Entrepreneur

I'm a full-time Internet entrepreneur who has taught thousands of people online about website creation and marketing through my site, podcast and YouTube channel.

In 2002, I began educating others to create their own websites and monetize them with AdSense, affiliate marketing and more. In 2006, I quit my full-time job to grow my online business full time.

Since then I have learned to use a lot of different tools and software and have also done consulting part-time for those who want to learn more about website creation and Internet Marketing.

I am ecstatic to broaden my reach to the Udemy community and look forward to teaching even more people online.
