Fathersben got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Create a Book Cover for Little Business Marketing
Check out Fathersben's Book cover contest…
Little Business Marketing is an educational company, primarily based online that provides 2 main ways to make little businesses more successful. Our website is www.LittleBusinessMarketing.com. A little business is basically any small business that has 1 person doing the marketing. This may be the owner or someone else. A little business is generally: 1. A self employed person 2. A small business with less than 10 employees We will provide learning resources in the form of books, DVDs, workshops and online videos so small business owners can learn how to get more customers themselves and provide a hands off "Let Us Do it For You" service for people who would prefer just get it done for them: The design for this printed book will be the basis for future books in the series and also complementary products, like DVDs and ebooks.
What's your vision?
This book design is for the main template that will be used for the "Little Business Marketing" Book Series. The design for this first book, titled "Local Business Marketing" will form the basis for future books in the book series and will also be the basis for these other products' design, including the DVDs and ecovers. The printed book will be about 250 pages and 5.5" x 8.5" (13.97 x 21.59 cm). This design project is for a book titled "Local Business Marketing". The author is myself "Ben Fathers" and the overall umbrella brand is "Little Business Marketing". Then I will create future books using the winner of this project's design as the template that only requires some small changes so I can easily change it to other niche business categories, like: "Plumber Marketing" and "Restaurant Marketing" and 10's of other specific small business types. So I envisage that I will just change a bit of text on the main cover and also an image or 2, to make it unique to the specific niche business type. All of the books in the book series will have Little Business Marketing Branding on them which will be the attached circular logo.
1. Probably not a bad idea to start from what the thumbnail will look like on amazon and work from there! 2. I need some sort of gold circular sticker or coupon thing or... some way to convey on the front book cover that when people buy this book, they will also get a discount code for Little Business Marketing for our "Let us do it for you" services.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Fathersben collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
