Customer reviews of PickFu book split testing software. Authors use PickFu to get instant feedback on their book covers, books, and book titles.
PickFu.com is my go-to tool whenever I want direct and honest feedback for my cover or book title. What I love is I get results within an hour and how the respondents provide a detailed 'reason why' they voted a certain way.
Inspiration is nice, but real-world feedback is more practical, especially if you want to sell books.
My co-author and I were trying to decide on a title for a book we have coming out on Retirement in Q1. We were able to enter the three choices we were considering and use the 50 to 64 age demographic which is our target audience! The results were easy to understand and the comments are extremely valuable. We especially liked being able to see the demographics of the person who made each comments as we could see clearly what they liked and didn’t like. We were able to use this information in writing or rewriting some of our chapters. Or simply confirming that we were on target with some things. Also, the turnaround was amazing.
For years I've been building a brand, and quite honestly, my 1000 true fans are going to buy my book no matter what the title is. That's why I chose PickFu.com; I wanted objective feedback on a book title so I could expand my platform and serve more leaders that don't know me yet! The process was simple to set up and I'm pleased with the results. It gave me plenty of data to digest and clarity on how to move forward with the release of my first book.
I selected PickFu because of the quality of the responses and the speed at which I received polling results. I simply don't have that patience or the luxury of waiting for days to receive polling data. I did multiple polls to help me select a new book cover and received the results of each poll in less than 15 minutes. Fantastic cost effective service and excellent support.
I highly recommend PickFu to the authors and aspiring authors I work with. Having the ability to objectively split test book covers and book titles from an unbiased audience is vitally important. Book titles and book covers can significantly impact purchase conversion, and a non-fiction author's thought leadership. Being able to test these factors is peace of mind.
I use PickFu to split test book titles and covers. It's been extremely helpful to know what readers prefer before I self-publish my books on Amazon. It enables me to make better decisions without relying purely on intuition.
Beyond reporting the numbers, each respondent leaves a short reason for their selections. That feedback helped me understand why and how people reacted to each title, and to find those people who sounded the most like my ideal reader.
I truly am a happy customer. What struck me the most was the quality and context of some of the comment responses. They will actually inform some choices as I move forward with this project.
To be honest, I was *stunned* at the results of that poll. I really liked the cover image with the new picture, but the vast majority of people liked the original all-red one. Since the purpose of a cover is to grab eyeballs and interest shoppers to click, it really is a popularity contest. The majority ruled.
PickFu makes it incredibly easy for authors to test their book covers and titles. You can get results quickly since PickFu has an established testing audience, and survey respondents need to say why they made the selection they did — this way, you’ll know they didn’t arbitrarily choose one design over the other.
I have loved PickFu and recommended it to dozens of people already. I've used it to quickly iterate ideas and have some data to make decisions. I'm a huge fan and will definitely continue using it for various projects.
Thank you for your vision and creating PickFu. As a businesswoman, financial coach, author and speaker, your company ROCKS! I write prolifically and need somewhere to go to get unbiased opinions from strangers that aren't just flaming my ideas because they had a bad day. It is the most helpful advice I can get when coming up with titles for books, headlines, and book covers. The diversity of the information and honest feedback is delightful. I've used the polls to help me narrow down a book title and soon I'll be using them to assist with my logo for my 8th business as well as the tag line for a new course I'm offering.
I was very impressed with PickFu. There were things I didn't expect: (1) I could choose the gender and age group. (2) Your age groups match the age groups that my Scribe Content software uses. Great. (3) The responses included a reason. That alone is super valuable and gave me a few branding ideas including images and copy tone. (4) You also broke down the respondents by education and income level. Wow -- I didn't think $70 could by so much happiness. This was money sooooo well spent!
I wanted to know which book cover design would entice a potential reader to buy my book. With PickFu, the results were timely, but more importantly, the comments I received were so thoughtful. Everyone's response provided additional insight.
Wow - I am very impressed with your site. The speed and quality of the feedback I received on my poll was very impressive and extremely useful to me.
