Author Website Essentials
Everything You Need to Know
To Plan and Set Up Your Site
Choose a Platform • Design • Organize • Build
If you’ve been thinking about creating your own author website to promote your work as a writer, maybe you’ve run into paralysis by analysis with all of the different choices available to you. How do you know what platform to choose, what host to choose, do you need a theme or a builder? and if you’ve gotten that far, then what?
Maybe that has you feeling stuck. Or maybe you are stuck because of how much work it seems like it is going to take and where do you even start?
Because everyone says it’s easy, WordPress has a famous 5 minute install and other platforms like Squarespace and Wix tout how quickly you can be up and running.
What they don’t tell you is “it’s easy” assumes you know how to organize a website, choose a layout, create a style or design and then figure out what goes where. They didn’t tell you about all the things you’d need to collect or the decisions you’d need to make. This book is the missing piece.
Author Website Essentials focuses on choosing a platform, creating a design, organizing your content, building your website and setting up to monitor its performance.
