People buy books by covers. Discover how to make your Kindle ebook cover stand out on Amazon, Google Play & IbookStore. In the last years I launched several books and ebooks. I use to pay a professional graphic designer to create the cover since I know the cover and the title usually make 70% of the factors that influence the sales.
Maybe it doesn't sound nice, but people use to judge - and buy - books and ebooks by the cover. When they check the books on Amazon, on Ibook Store or on Google Play they choose the books they buy by judging on 3 main items:

the cover of the ebook
the title
the reputation of the author

My name is Florin Rosoga, I launched several books and ebooks for myself (or my clients) in the last years.

One of the most important elements that influence books sales are the covers you use. Especially in the online world - where everything is visual - a catching cover will get more attention and usually boost sales.

Let's be honest: when somebody buys a book, he doesn't know the content, he cannot know what's inside. They assume it is a good one and they want to have it.

And they assume this, once again, by the 3 factors above - tile, cover and author's reputation.

Since becoming a bestseller can be defined by the cover, the title and the reputation of the author (it takes years to build the reputation), if you are not a popular writer you can start working now on having a professional cover and the title (asumming you know the topic of your book).

This is why when I launch a new book or ebook I pay a professional graphic designer. Which cost a lot.
Probably you saw on Amazon many Kindle ebook covers that look professional and thought how great they look.
And they also seem so clear, so eye catching. Just check the best sellers section and see the covers...

If you are like most authors you said yourself "They look awesome, but I don't know graphic design and paying a graphic designer would cost a fortune..."
And I confirm you it usually costs a small fortune...
But it's not true you cannot do it by yourself.
