While the main focus for creating eye catching ecovers to use them for your books there are other ways you can use the covers you make. Getting a book published is a goal for many people today as they are looking forward to boasting to their family and friends that they are now a published author. But what else can you do with these covers?
Once you have the design for your ecover - you can then use this to create additional marketing material - including:

Once you have downloaded your main ecover you can then resize it and use it in various ways on your website. Thumbnail images are great for adding as a featured image on any related blog posts that you create. You can also use them to create a specific page on your blog for all the books and reports that you have created.
Re-sizing your ecovers is a good idea when space is a problem on your page. By re-sizing your image even by a small amount you can save space. Just remember that when you resize your image to ensure that the title is still readable.
Even if you don’t intend to publish your books on sites like Kindle or in the iBookstore you should still aim to create great looking ecovers. Using great looking ecovers help to brand your business and creates a solid and professional appearance for your business.
