Now you’re clued up on what Envato Elements is, it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty.
How exactly can Envato Elements help you promote a book?
Well, it’s all in the assets.
Book Cover Images.
If you’re an author who creates your own book covers, firstly, well done. Secondly, you’re most likely going to need some images to work from.
Envato is one of the better options for getting hold of stock photos. Not only do you get over four-million images included in your subscription, they’re also royalty free.
It means every photo on the site has a commercial license included, so you don’t have to worry about using the image for your book cover.
If you have an author website or blog, you can use any of the stock photos as your featured image or to spice up the article.
There are over 20,000 fonts included in the subscription, which gives you ample design choices for your book cover.
It is one of the largest databases of commercial fonts on the internet.
A book is often sold on the strength of the cover alone, and the font plays a large part of that.
Book Website Themes.
Some authors choose to have separate websites for each book they release. It enables them to share content relative to that specific book.
Envato holds over 4,000 website themes and 1,500 WordPress themes, all with commercial usage.
Just to hammer it home, that commercial usage aspect I keep banging on about it, is a massive part of why using Envato Elements is beneficial for authors.
You will also be able to find the perfect theme for your author website.
Every book needs to be promoted, and unless you have pockets as deep as Elon Musk then you need to be savvy with your spending.
It means you won’t be likely to run out of ideas anytime soon. They’re all included in the Envato subscription, which makes keeping a track of your spending a breeze.

Stock Videos for Promotion.
Stock videos can assist in the production of book trailers, YouTube videos and other promotional videos.
As every video on the site has a commercial license, you could include them as is on your website, blog, or social media platforms.
To seal the deal, there are over three-million stock videos and motion graphics included with your subscription.
There are over 50,000 presentation templates available to download from the site.
You might be wondering why this will help in the promotion of your book? Instead of paying over £100 for a Nielsen Biblet, you can make one yourself!
The templates can also be used to create content for your newsletter subscribers or for the promotion of your book.
What is the price tag on an Envato Elements Subscription?
In the UK and EU, prices start at €14.50/month (£12.20). U.S. prices start from $16.50. These were accurate as of November 2022 but check the Envato Elements site for any changes.
You can easily run book promotions using Envato Elements assets. The major benefit of using the platform is that you have everything under one roof.
I personally use the service, and I know many others who do. I’ve only listed the main assets from the site but there are many more. Why not explore?
