In today’s high-tech world, one thing reigns supreme: images. As authors use social media and blogs to discuss their books, images are a crucial component to making those posts pop.
While your book cover should definitely be designed to catch eyes, that’s not the only image you’ll want to include. For blog posts, you’ll want images that can speak to what’s being said and make your reader want to dive into the post. For social media posts, you’ll often want a nice background to make people stop scrolling and take notice.
