In Monday’s post, I showed how to use XHeader (a free) tool to create a cover image for Facebook. It’s a great tool that I use for header graphics and banners when I need something right away….but the fact is that I’m not a graphic designer and sometimes my images need a lot of work and revision to look decent.
Instead of spending lots of time tweaking images, I’ve found Pagemodo to be a much better use of my time. It gives me a much more professional cover image in a lot less time. Also if you’re graphic design challenged, you’ll be amazed at what you can create in no time.

Types of Accounts for Authors
- Free Account – nothing wrong with getting a free account to try it out. With a free account, they put small text in the bottom right corner that says “Pagemodo cover image creator” Also, they let you have 1 custom tab, and you can schedule 1 post to Facebook and Twitter each day (we’ll talk about these in subsequent posts).
- Basic account – Starting at $6.25 a month, you get rid of the Pagemodo text in the corner (which makes your page look even more professional). 3 tabs per page, and unlimited posts.
- Pro Account – What I use because I have fan pages for KillerBookMarketing, Author Jess Michaels, and Author Jesse Petersen – but the real benefit is the “Like Gate” functionality I’ll be showing off in the next week or two.
Pretty cool, huh? 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions. Please comment below if you found this useful!.
