A book’s title tells your potential reader in just a few words why they should read your book. It’s an essential marketing tool that authors often agonize over.

  • Option A: Live like you mean it:The best digital guide to reach amazing productivity, fight internet addiction, and avoid time management failure by simply defeating several billion dollar companies.

Which One Won? Does steak sell steak knives?

There’s nothing more natural-looking than a steak knife cutting into a slab of meat. The sight can make a meat lover’s mouth water, and it would follow that featuring a nice cut of meat next to a steak knife set could appeal to potential customers.

One seller recently ran a PickFu poll to test that very thing. They wanted to know which primary Amazon photo to use for their steak knife listing.

Option A showcases a steak knife set, two accessories, and an image of…well…steak.

In Option B, the steak is gone and instead, all three accessories are visible.
