Course Description

If you have a digital ebook, audio, video or multimedia training course that is sold online, you need a 3D cover graphic that represents your product to prospective customers.


Well, a quality 3D cover graphic:

  • Helps people visualize your product
  • Helps turn your "intangible" (digital) product into something a little more tangible
  • Helps give you more credibility
  • Helps build trust in your prospective customers
  • Helps you make a lot more sales!

But what it you're not a graphic artist or a photoshop expert?

What if you don't want to take a 3 hour course to learn how to quickly and easily create a 3D cover?

Then, you need this course!

This course will walk you through, step-by-step, how to create high-quality 3D cover graphics for your digital products!

I will walk you through an online tool that is "point-and-click" simple to use and show you how you can get amazing graphics made in a matter of minutes! (and for as little as $4.95 per graphic)

So, even if you consider yourself completely "graphically-challenged", in this course, I will show you how to quickly and easily begin creating your own 3D cover graphics asap!

In fact, if you want, you could even start a new business, offering your 3D cover graphics to people as a freelancer!

Imagine being able to create 3D cover graphics at will!
