Best Practice Cover Design

Any cover designer worth their salt will already know about the different dimensions displayed across the Amazon universe, but if you’re designing your own cover this tool will be a useful for checking how your book displays in the different places books show up to your readers. If your cover is too busy, or has too much text it may work in the Search Results page, but once it gets shrunk down to size on the Frequently Bought Together section it could get overlooked by a potential reader.

There are so many opportunities for having your book displayed on Amazon that you should consider it’s appeal in the range of dimensions used on it’s platform. Each impression is an opportunity to grab your reader’s attention and entice them to click on your cover – it’s a key path to purchase, so make sure you’re giving your book the best chance of getting discovered.
