Are you ready to create your Book Cover? In the last two posts, I shared two tips with you: (1) make your title super easy to read and (2) find one good image to support the title. Today, we go into the last kick-ass tip – a sweet, simple layout. And you can follow along in the video below to create your own freebie cover design.

A quick note before we begin … on Tuesday this week, you can enroll in the great website course and get your client-attracting coaching website up fast. You’ll get content, design and technical steps you can do in your spare time. It might be just what you need now. Have a look.

Now, on to my simple approach to a great cover …

Here’s what I do:

  • Use just one cool font for the title – the one that matches my website.
  • Use just one good image that supports the title.
  • Sample a darker color from the image for the cover background.
  • Make the title white or a lighter color so it stands out over the dark background.

I avoid …


  • using multiple images as it becomes confusing
  • using multiple fonts because it gets ugly
  • using too many colors because it causes clashing
  • trying to find the perfect image because it frustrates me and wastes time

Can you see how each of the points above work in these examples?

I especially like using a solid color for the background of the image because it creates a very powerful feeling AND when placed on a web page, it stands out.

As you can see the agent success one is using a powerful black and the heart-to-heart one is using a warm red.

Now it’s your turn. Watch this video to create your own kick-ass freebie cover. 

Before you do the video, have a title in mind for your freebie and find an image for it at BigStockPhoto.com.

In the video, I refer to an example website, CoachKenn.com, that I use in the course.

We’ll be using Pixlr, a free online graphic design tool, like Photoshop.

Be sure to click the full-screen button on the bottom right of the video.
