In an age where Google is king, every serious author needs a website. It’s the launching point from which all of your online marketing springs; introducing you and your story to the world, telling readers to find you on social, and providing a place for you to sell your book directly to readers. Our Standard Author Website offers all of this, plus the ability to feature photos and video.
The next step up in website creation, our Author Website with Blog, takes things a step further. Everyone knows blogging is one of the most powerful marketing tools for an author. After all, you’re a professional writer now—your fans want to see new work from you! Your new WordPress-based website will make it easy to publish new posts and keep in touch with your fans. With built-in subscription capabilities, readers can sign up to receive your updates by email, enabling you to send blog posts straight to your fan’s inbox.
Social media is the icing on the website cake. While both of the website options mentioned above will link to your social media, the Website with Live Social Media Integration (the highest level of website development we offer) is the pinnacle of fan-building. Live feeds will feature your latest Facebook and Twitter posts in the sidebar of your website, meaning fans can “like” and “follow” without ever leaving your website—no extra work required. With both blog and subscription-building capabilities as well, the Author Website with Live Social Media Integration is fully equipped to meet the needs of authors looking for maximum growth and exposure.
