The title and subtitle should be very clear and easy to read, especially in the small thumbnail on Amazon.
The cover should look like a New York Times bestseller (but not use those words).
We suggest using one memorable, iconic image that conveys the title:
The MAGIC of Everyday Giving.
We'd like an image that conveys the joy of being generous, but without showing money.
Do not use any money, cash, coins, piggy bank, cash register.or dollar signs.
This book is for people who run nonprofits, churches, clubs, or organizations that need to raise money. It introduces a revolutionary giving platform that has merchants send a cut from every transaction to the shopper’s cause. We want them to feel that this is accessible, trustworthy, modern, and youthful.
For example, buying a cup of coffee at Starbucks would send $0.25 to the shopper’s cause of choice. We cannot use any logos or major brands.
Avoid stock images where race and gender are easily identifiable.
The budget for stock images is $29-$49
Barry Shore is a tech entrepreneur who was struck with a rare neurological disease at the age of 55 that rendered him a quadriplegic. As he slowly recovered, he created Dlyted.com, a mobile giving platform that combines elements of digital gift cards, local merchant promotions, and linked credit cards so that everyday shopping can become everyday giving.
Causes, nonprofits, churches, organizations can have their supporters use the Dlyted platform and when they shop at local merchants, a piece of every transaction is contributed to their cause of choice. It doesn’t cost the supporters a penny.
Local merchants build loyalty by aligning with local causes, and it all happens seamlessly.
Barry’s vision is to facilitate the giving of $1 Billion without costing the supporters a penny.
The cover (including the back and spine) needs to be simple and bold - something that will pop in Amazon's Kindle store as a thumbnail and on the bookshelf. The book is 6 x 9”.The spine will be about .48"
PLEASE READ: I would prefer to not use stock photography someone else can just buy. If you must use stock photography please make some change or edit to make it creatively yours. :)
