Author Website Setup - Standard


A website is an essential piece of any marketing plan and enables readers to find you and your book online. Broaden your promotional efforts, and increase your chance of discovery with your own custom website.

You don't have to be technologically savvy to have a website. Our Web design team has the technical skills and knowledge to help you get started. Once we set up your website, as long as you can use a computer and have access to the Internet, you can start using this personalized tool as a central piece of your online marketing strategy.

What you get:

  • Website Setup – After you purchase our Author Website Setup – Standard service, one of our representatives will contact you to set up your website. Your website will have:
    • Three pages: About the Book, About the Author and Order Now
    • Two images
  • One Year of Hosting – This plan ensures that your site is functioning, a backup copy of your site is safe and secure, and that technical support is only a call or email away if needed.
  • Domain Name – You will have the opportunity to choose the domain name for your website. Supply us with your top three choices, and we’ll let you know which one is available.
  • An Email Account – Email readers, friends and family with an address that comes from your own website.*
  • Email Collector Widget – Build an email list of fans with a widget that allows website visitors to submit their email addresses for correspondence.

This service includes the initial setup of your site. After the initial setup, we can perform design changes upon request for an additional fee. Once your first year of hosting has passed, you will be responsible for paying a yearly site hosting and domain name renewal fee for as long as you want your website to be available on the Internet.
