How does it work?

Author Website Design Process

  • You give us whatever content you have such as imagery, bio photos, book blurbs, cover art, reviews, buy links, social follow links, etc.
  • We create a PDF preview of the home page with unique branding elements, design and website structure as fits your author brand and content
  • We discuss the proposed mockup and make notes of any desired changes. If necessary we redesign the layout (virtually never happens)
  • We go ahead and use this mockup as a direction to create the rest of the website’s design and branding. In this manner, we create unique interior website pages. Our goal is to make the website a high-performance work of art in its own right.
  • We optimize the website pages to be easily found for relevant searches
  • We optimize the website to load quickly
  • We set up a blog with social share buttons on each new post you create
  • We set up a newsletter opt-in so your fans and readers can join your author funnel and be notified of new book releases, blog posts and be encouraged to buy and leave reviews if they haven’t yet
  • We launch your website and recommend and offer the means to send traffic to it. You build your digital presence with your shining new home online.
  • You have 30 days to let us know of any non-optimum functioning of the website. We correct it at no extra charge.

Website Timeline: 4 – 6 weeks

  • At a rush, with quick feedback and minimal change requests, a 3-week turnaround is possible, but can’t be guaranteed.

What if something doesn't work?

Quality Assurance and Aftercare

  • Before launching, every aspect of the website is thoroughly and meticulously tested and corrected as needed.
  • Any non-optimum functioning found on the website within 30 days of launch will be corrected as fast as possible should any be found. We do this at no extra charge.
