Software to Create Bookbub Ads?
« on: March 13, 2018, 05:18:33 PM »
Hello!

I was recently approved for Bookbub ads, and I'm going to give it a whirl. I did some research saw a lot out there about what to put in the ad, when to use CPC versus CPM, adding "free on KU," etc. But I was hoping for some advice on how to create the ad. The built-in Bookbub interface only allows a measly 60 characters! I was hoping to include a longer quote on the ad.

What software have people used to create their own ad? Is it lame to use PowerPoint or Word (which I know much better than say Photoshop or Illustrator) to create it?

Thanks!

Canva is free and has a template for Bookbub ads. You can download them to keep as jpg or png.

Won't help with graphics, but you can add you background, cover if you like, and whatever words will fit.

InkScape. Free and well worth learning if you are going to make creatives on a regular basis.
