There is so much content on Facebook that only the really eye-catching gets anyone's attention.
The movement in a good animated cover disrupts people's attention and draws them towards the cover.
Subtle enough to 'catch the eye', good animation develops the existing story that is already in the cover imagery.
Good animation draws readers to your book by adding a sense of intrigue, or by opening up story elements to entice new audiences to stop... to pause... to read your ad copy!
It is easy to add wisps of smoke or dancing lights to an image... if that's right for your book then that's fine.
However, real story elements have to be hand created.
I create bespoke, looping animated book cover GIFs (as on this page), and videos. Videos can be much larger, and can include additional features, such as sound.
Working with your existing artwork and text, I can create stunning, scroll-stopping animated images that are perfect for bringing in fresh audiences from Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
I'm currently offering to create animated book covers at a discounted price.
