Your website is the most important part of your online marketing strategy. As much as you need to have a strong social media presence, a website gives you a place to send people when they want to know more about you, follow your work, or just check out your blog.
My website services were designed with authors in mind. You don’t need a big, complicated website (although, I can do that, too, if you’d like). These websites are budget-friendly, easy to use, and come ready for you to add in content and go. They also come with two weeks of email support to get you started.
- Five pages
- Contact (with a contact form)
- Published Works (or upcoming books, or whatever other page would better fit your needs)
- A simple custom design (based on which theme you select– some themes are easier to customize than others)
- A basic header (or I can provide the dimensions, and you can provide your own)
- A series of plug-ins, to give your website maximum operability with a minimal learning curve
- Social media implementation (links to social media profiles in the sidebar, easy sharing options on posts)
- Two weeks of email support
- Domain and hosting
- Content for you webpages
- A professional header and other graphics, if wanted.
What will your website look like?
Every website is personalized, but the overall look is determined by the WordPress theme you select. There are thousands of free themes available; how do you choose? I created a short guide to help you with your decision: How to Select Your WordPress Theme.
Still unsure? Check out a short list of some of my favorite WordPress themes for authors.
The standard author website costs $200. Additional pages are available for $15 each (no content). Further customizations, content, and related services are also available. If you’re not sure what you would like, contact me, and I can work with you to design a website that it just right for you.
