Details: This is an excellent tool to market your book, as it allows you to control the content and optimize the traffic to the website. You can create a dialogue with your potential readers and engage your fan base with information on upcoming events, reviews of your work, or new book projects you are working on. Other effective uses of the website include reviewing other books of interest, linking articles or websites that tie in to the book, maintaining a blog on book-related topics, and running contests to generate interest in your book. This is the best package for an author to have unlimited control over his or her website. The domain name and hosting site are purchased by the author. We can assist the author in this selection process. Once the domain name and hosting site have been selected and purchased, then Inkwater will create a custom 5-page website for the author. Once the setup is completed, the author will have full control to add plug-ins, change templates, update features, add shopping carts, and more. Note: This is a design-only package. Maintenance and renewal fees (hosting and domain) are the responsibility of the author.
This website package includes:
- Author’s choice of private domain name and hosting site*
- Custom site based on a selected WordPress template
- Up to 5 pages for initial site
- Direct links to the major suppliers (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powells, etc.)
- Search engine optimized
- All pages and content can be modified by the author
- Author can add pictures, audio, embedded video links to YouTube, or other video sites, website links
*A private domain will make it much easier for potential readers to find you online (ex. yourname.com or titleofyourbook.com). Additionally, this gives you the ability to create personalized email accounts that correspond with your domain name (ex. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).
