    Having it look great is good yes but I feel the first step is to have your content grab your reader's attention before the looks. What demand does your ebook solve? The second step of my optimization would be then to work on my graphics. Be careful though cause I changed just an image on a landing page of mine and it spun the whole campaign around from nothing to a decent opt in rate.

    You never know but yes there is always research that needs to be done.

    You can easily use OpenOffice or Word as your word processor. There are tons of both free and paid templates that will make your product look professional. Find something you like and that treats the reader well (easy on the eyes, good navigation, classy typography, etc).

    You can also create your own templates by simply finding a great looking eBook and implementing the settings into your word processor and saving the result as a template. I'm not suggesting you copy the ebook, just use the same format settings.

    No need to spend a bunch of money creating your ebook. In both OpenOffice and Word you can save your document in PDF format.

    Good luck,
    Steve

    You can use your basic creativity. Know exactly what your ebook is for and find appropriate stock photo or public domain images then do some tweaks like using eye-catching fonts, adding shadows, figures, borders, etc. Just do some combinations and you will soon find the output to be just like those made by pros or maybe even better. Believe me I've produced awesome ebook covers by just using the windows basic accessory - MSPaint!

    you can use Photoshop if you know how to use it... or you can simply hire someone on Fiverr to do it for you, there are also some websites that offer this service at a great price of less than 20 Dollars for a pro eCover.

    I'm NOT sure if there are any quality Free eCover making services out there.

    There are some great Services here in the Warrior forum.I also agree with a previous comment that your content is much more valuable, and will likely be held in high regard by the reader then the actual design. I think this is the case because there have been many instances of very ugly sales copies of books and sales Pages, however their conversion rates were very high.

    Yes I agree with Matt Repa
    If you go to fiverr you can literally have someone create you an awesome ebook cover and if you don't like it they will revise it as many times as you need till you get your vision on cover. Its a great and fast way to get the job done cheap and easy.

    There are a lot of ways to create great looking ebook. In my opinion, you have to analyse every tip about ebook creations. Design is very important so hire any designer or ask your friends who know designing. Put your own ideas, creative everything in the ebook.

    I have used many different ebook programs in the past. I remember the first ebook I created was called 'The Complete Internet Marketing Portfolio', which was a collection of different articles into an ebook. I created it in 1997. That was created with a program called NeoBook. The latest NeoBook software is more like a application creation tool, it can handle databases and access the Internet. If you are looking for more of a WYSIWYG application creation tool its definitely worth checking out:

  • For the formatting, you can use Microsoft Word. It has a lot of great templates in there. And there are plenty of free images you can use to add to the formatting.

    But for the ebook cover design, I suggest you invest in a good one. There are a lot of great designers on Fiverr

    If you use Fiverr be sure and provide them with the images you want to use so you know they're legal for commercial use.

    Formatting can be done with Microsoft word. You can find free templates online.

    Have someone do it for you. Go to Fiverr or buy an expensive software to do it for you. I recommend Fiverr for this though. There are great designers on there.

    Trend lately is to develop an ebook (especially if it is a training-type ebook) in MS Powerpoint and then save the final version as PDF.

    Not only does this offer you some interesting design capabilities, but it allows you start with a set of base slides that you can use in seminars, coaching programs, keynotes, etc...

    We used to always convert our ebooks into a corresponding slide deck to use in talks, but the next ebook will be done entirely in powerpoint for the reasons listed above.

      Jeff,
      That's why I suggested Google Slides. It is like PowerPoint, but free. You only need to sell your soul to Google, I mean sign up for an account.
