7 Tips for Making Your Cover Better Than Your Competitors

It's common knowledge that book covers are what attracts a reader the moment they enter a bookstore or shop online. It's a critical aspect of marketing—one that plays a significant factor for readers to decide whether to give your book a shot or not. However, what makes a book cover enticing?


Tip # 1: Pique Interest

More than anything else, a book cover's primary purpose is to pique a reader's interest. If you're designing a book cover, put yourself in the shoes of your reader and ask:

  • What type of cover catches my attention at first sight?
  • What title font looks compelling?
  • What color themes fit the genre I like?
  • Does this cover show too much of the story?

Remember, identifying with your reader will help you create a book cover that stands out, whether it's on a shelf or an e-library.


Tip # 2: Find The Right Designer or Tool

Find the right designer. Whether you're off to work with a professional designer or design a book cover using any editing program, you need to consider the costs, time, and effort the work requires you.


Hiring a professional book cover designer is the most expensive option. However, once you've discussed the design style and other crucial factors to achieve that desired cover, all you need to do is wait for their update.


If you want to design your book cover on your own, using editing software should do the trick. It takes time, effort, and familiarity with the programs, so find something that's not too complicated to use, especially if editing is not your forte. Some tools like the AuthorLab Designer's Cover Creator allows authors to create book covers using their online program. The software and its templates are for all kinds of authors, so you don't have to worry about starting from scratch.


Tip # 3: Connect With Your Genre

A good book cover design must resonate with your book's genre or communicate your content, but not too much. Remember, book covers are there to intrigue readers to explore your book and buy it without telling them exactly what's in it for them. The book cover should convey an ambiance rather than display a replica of your content.

Tip # 4: Find The Perfect Image

For book covers using imagery, pick images that make a statement to draw your potential readers' attention. Use darker or lighter themes depending on the genre or mood you wish to depict. For example, darker images express spookiness, making them ideal for thriller, horror, suspense, or mystery novels. On the other hand, lighter shades lean more towards romance and non-fiction themes.

Tip # 5: Choose Appropriate Fonts

Your typography or choice of font style, appearance, color, or structure can make or break your cover. Hence, pick something that will complement your chosen theme, color scheme, or background image. Remember to make your text captivating and as readable as possible!

Tip # 6: Stick With One Focal Point

Additionally, make sure not to clutter your book cover with too many elements. After all, simplicity and clarity work well together.

Tip # 7: Get Feedback

Seek out opinions from others, particularly your target audience. Gather as much comment or data, listing their suggestions to see what aspects you can still improve on your design. Doing so helps you figure out how your readers will view your book, whether it's appealing at first glance or not.
