Banner Design for Authors: Facebook, Twitter, Bookbub

Social media plays a vital role in an author’s marketing campaign, requiring good banner design services. A well-designed banner is essential for author pages or book pages on popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and YouTube. These sites have space for header banners, and some offer paid advertising opportunities that require banners too.

An author website is equally important, serving as a place for readers to learn about the author and their books, contact them, and sign up for newsletters. A website banner, newsletter header, and smaller banners for advertising specific books or promotions are all necessary.

Usually we start with one main banner for a website or Facebook and we then make new banners based on the same design for other places.  This can be quite time-consuming as the banner size can vary from a square to a flat rectangle – which means I need to completely redo the banner.

I ask $ 45 for the initial website, Twitter or Facebook banner and $20 for each new resized banner I have to make, provided this is based on the book cover design.  If I have to make a completely new design for the banner it will incur extra fees.

I also design Facebook and Bookbub ads.  Contact me for further discussion and pricing.

Due to time constraints and having lots of customers, I only offer this service to authors who have bought premade ebook covers from me, or who have ordered custom designed book covers.
