3 REASONS WHY YOU NEED A PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED BOOK COVER

Did you know that over 200,000 books are published each year in the USA alone? 

What’s more interesting is that diverse books are written and published on the same topic or field hence, readers have many options. 

This tells you that the competition is so high and to make your book a bestseller, you must strive to make your target audience see your book as the best option. 

Aside from the fact that you need to write a well-formatted book, free of typographical errors and unwanted information, you need to take a step further to make sure that your book cover designs befit the quality content you have therein and more so, one designed by a professional

In this article, I will give you 3 reasons why you need a professionally designed book cover;

1.    To capture the attention of your target audience:

The essence of a quality book cover design is to grab the attention of your potential reader; almost every book cover designer knows this, the professionals and amateurs alike. 

But what the amateurs do not know is that book cover designs differ based on the content of a book; the way a self-help book cover is designed isn’t the way children’s book cover is designed. 

Professionals design book covers to target a particular audience; amateurs don’t know this. 

2.    To build or maintain brand identity:

Most times, what readers buy is the brand and not the book and that is the reason authors try as much as possible to make their brand message very clear to their audience. 

As an author, having your book cover designed by an amateur who does not understand its importance is super risky as it will ruin your chance of becoming a bestseller.

3.    To stay on top of the game:

With the fact I stated in the introduction, you would understand that the game is on; the market is hot and as such, you must step up your game. 

Professionals know that book cover designs are potent marketing tools and amateurs do not.
