No one judges a book by its cover, right?

Right. Well, your ebook, audio product or video course had better be properly packaged or your sales will most definitely suffer. Just because you’re selling digital e-products doesn’t mean that the critical role packaging plays in the marketing process has changed.

Obviously in this section it is hard to be too specific as you could be setting up a blog to sell products and services, how to grow the best potatoes in the world or dealing with multi nationals. For this reason I will go more into the principles and provide the resources for you to accomplish the right design. You can always use the forum to ask more specific questions.

Whether your selling someone else’s product or developing your own try and provide nice eye candy for your customers. A nice eBook or box cover can make all the difference to a successful campaign. Creating an attractive template for your eBooks only takes a few extra minutes of work but the overall look can be greatly enhanced and make your product look much more professional.

A simple, yet well designed header, can make your site stand out from the crowd and and make people feel confident you know what you are talking about.
