One thing to notice is that simplicity of the majority of these ebook covers. The most important things in my opinion are as follows:

  1. Be Clear – Don’t clutter your ecovers with too many words and images. The goal is to get the essence of your message across quickly.
  2. Have a Great Title – What is a catchy way to describe your content? Think of yourself as a potential reader of your book. Would you be interested in your book based on the title alone? If not, change it!
  3. Be Clever – There’s nothing like inventive imagery to catch the viewer’s attention. Whether it’s a well placed image or a creative layout for your title, it’s always great to think outside the box. The examples I listed above should help inspire you!
