Help Us Choose a Cover!!

Gosh, I really hate to cover up Marilyn's spot on post about blogging and your sig and commenting, but we are urgently in need of a vote on some covers.

This will be for THE JELLY BEAN PRINCIPLE...Barry Thomsen's business advice book that could easily be a MBA course in compact form. Organized into 100+ vignettes, each section focuses on one element which can help your business stand out from the competition, acquire and keep loyal customers, earn word-of-mouth validation and more, more, more.

Barry's point is that you need to do things to make your business stand out from the crowd, much the way a black Jelly Bean stands out from the other flavors.

Here's the link VIEW THE COVERS

Take a look and surf back her and leave your vote in the comments!

Once the decision is in, I will delete this post, so more people can read Marilyn's Blogging Broadcast....'cause you just can't say this enough and some people still don't get it!

I like the one with the hands. It personalizes it and shows how you can hold all the beans if you read the book.

I agree with Gus - beans in the hand. Also, the black cover is eye-catching and the hands seem both prayerful and bountiful. I like the bowl on the other cover, but having the words "jelly bean" in an outline font filled in with beans makes it easy to miss what the words actually are.

I also like the one with the hands. It seems more personal and not as busy as the one with the bowl.

Definitely the one on the left, with Beans in the Hand. It seems more organized. Not only that, white covers are a pain. I notice there's a black border, but still it's hard to make those stand out. Take it from a person who has one.
