One of the most important things an author should do EVEN BEFORE they publish their AMAZING books is to create an author website.
1. It is the place people can go to learn all about you and your work, meaning they don't have to search through many different social media profiles to get a clear idea of who you are and what you do.
2. It is another way for you to put your name out there and begin building a following. Before you even publish you can start to form an audience using newsletters.
3. It gives you a professional appearance, which will give you a foot up above those who don't have a website.
I knew I wanted to make a website almost as soon as I decided to publish my first book. But a question arose... How do I make a website from scratch? How do I make it mine and brand myself and my writing in a professional way? Where do I even start?
Thankfully, I was in the process of binge watching Authortubers, many of whom already had author websites. I found Brittany Wang's channel and learned about her AMAZING Author Website Boot Camp, which is an online class she offers to train authors to create their own AWESOME websites from scratch. In a few weeks, I went from a complete noob to having a website I am PROUD to put my name one. She walked through everything in detail, and I feel confident managing and keeping my website up to date.
In hindsight, this boot camp was worth every single penny I spent on it. I am THRILLED and HONORED to be an affiliate of this course. If you are an author and don't have a website, or you have one that needs a face lift and you want new knowledge and tools to create a memorable and beautiful site, then use the link below to sign up for the Author Website Boot Camp! You won't regret it!
