First impressions are very important.
Whether it’s you walking into an important meeting, or someone seeing your book for the first time, the person viewing you or your book will form an opinion at first sight.
It’s just human nature. It’s how we create memories.
If you want people to notice and buy your book, you need to make a good first impression.
Walk into any bookstore or even your local library, and you’ll notice the colors of the books first.
Depending on what you are looking for, different colors will appeal to you. Take cookbooks, for example.
Many of today’s “healthy eating” cookbooks are either white or earth tone, while those for baking may incorporate pink – like frosting, which isn’t always healthy.
As you get closer to the books, you’ll start to read titles. Once again, first impressions will be important. Book titles need to be short, concise and convey the book’s message.
Not everyone will take time to read the book back matter, or even the subtitle if the title doesn’t grab them first.
