Course Description

eBook cover design, most often, tends to involve expensive and hard to learn software. Covers are one of the most important parts of the sales process. High definition covers directly drives sales.

When it comes to your eBook cover, nothing is more important than a high resolution and visually engaging design. If your cover looks like it was created by an amateur, book sales will suffer not to mention your market credibility as an author.

Most people, especially those who love reading eBooks, will base a large part of their purchasing decision on how appealing the cover is. Let's face it; most are visual creatures. When you browse through eBooks on Amazon, Google Books, Smashword or other eBook sales platforms, how many times have you purchased eBooks with poorly designed covers?
