Which One Won? Starting a business selling baby products

What’s one of the first things moms-to-be add to their Amazon baby registries? Nursing covers. They’re irresistibly stretchy, and they aren’t just for breastfeeding. Moms also use them as shopping cart supports, car seat covers, and stroller shades.

Because of this, options abound. If you’re starting a business selling baby products, then making your brand stand out from the crowd can be challenging.

In a recent poll, one PickFu user tested three main product images of their nursing cover. They targeted females and Amazon Prime Members in order to achieve the most relevant results.

Which One Won? Can chick lit book cover art be too sweet?

Chick lit is the new chick flick. Or maybe it’s better, because for those who crave the lighthearted humor of a romantic comedy, a book lasts longer.

She asked a general audience of respondents the following question: “Which cover do you prefer for a fun, feel-good book about finding love?”

Option A shows a bright red cover with illustrations of two characters (sans their faces) and yellow font.

In Option B, the cover takes a totally different turn. With a pink-clad woman and a light-blue background, this cover is as light as a cupcake. It also lacks the blurb by a fellow bestselling author.
