Seven Secrets for Effective Author Websites
As an aspiring author, you probably realize that potential agents and publishers are looking at more than your manuscript when deciding whether or not to work with you. It’s common for publishing house decision-makers to Google the author during meetings. Your online presence can be an important factor in whether or not you are offered a contract.
How to make a strong ﬁrst impression.
A website should effectively communicate your brand as an author. Think of your website as an opportunity to make a great ﬁrst impression. It’s like the marketing equivalent of the ﬁrst ﬁve pages of a novel. If you’re marketing yourself as a professional author, your website needs to make a strong professional ﬁrst impression on your visitors.
Your website is the key to your platform.
Many authors struggle with their sites and make common mistakes that cost them readers. Of course, you would much rather write than think about your website! However, a great website is a powerful way to communicate with people who want to be involved with your work.
Making your site great doesn’t have to feel like a chore. It’s your opportunity to welcome your visitors and impress them with what makes you exceptional. Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to inspire your visitors and share in ways that will improve their lives.
