Last week I asked the Spiderworking.com Facebook community to share their cover images. And what a great selection we got. If you are still struggling to find something that works maybe these examples will inspire you.
If you haven’t sorted your cover image yet don’t panic. According to this article your page visitors don’t really look that hard. On the other hand I think having a good cover image makes a great first impression so it’s worth putting a bit of thought into.
As a total chocolate addict this one from Cocature is hard for me to resist. I love that they’ve made it seasonal too. That’s one of the nice things about cover images, you can change them as often as you want. Just like our next example –
Wicklow County Enterprise Board
Great image and straight away it tells you something about the Wicklow County Enterprise Board. They change their cover image on a regular basis, have a look through their photo albums to see past examples.
Connemara Heritage & History Centre
I love the Chicken avatar on this one from the Connemara Heritage & History Centre and the cover tells the story of the business
There’s a lot of animal related businesses connected to us on Facebook. Here’s the first of many. Country Hounds… now with all these dog pages can someone balance it out with a cat page please!
David Dempsey Photography
Very clever use of the cover image by David Dempsey Photography, it’s a portfolio of his work all in one image.
The Little Coffee House
For the best looking women you’re likely to find at a coffee shop! I love this pic from the Little Coffee House it really made me smile.
My Girl Friday
The first of two Virtual Assistant pages that shared their cover photos, this one from My Girl Friday reminds me of Mad Men for some reason. A really attractive image.
Not dogs this time but pigs! I really like the way this image from Oldfarm puts a personal touch to the brand. The pigs are beautiful but so is the farmer!
Our second Virtual Assistant, Outofhoursva has recently switched her avatar image from a illustration to a photo. I love this as now I can see the real person behind the name. The cover image is fun and communicate exactly what the business is about.
A simple use of a logo from another doggie page Pedigree Dogs although it should be noted that it’s against Facebooks cover photo guidelines to include a web address in your cover image.
Pet Sitters Ireland
Bonus points to Pet Sitters Ireland for including a cat in their cover image! (big cat lover here). I really like the avatar too.
A really visually attractive image from Technically Tanya. The black and white works well and the picture tells a story.
I love the Zwartbles page, it’s always full of beautiful pictures of the sheep. The cover image is no exception, and it’s seasonal too – those lambs have a real spring in their step!
I’ve really enjoyed looking through all your cover images, such a wide range of businesses on Facebook! If you missed our call out to show off your cover image post your links below. If I get a chance I’ll do a follow up post.
