Author Website and Hosting
Regardless of whether you get signed to a large publishing house or decide to self-publish, you need to promote your work yourself. In any case, to sell books, you must develop a solid platform. Don’t be fooled into thinking a large publisher invests any money into advertising your work because they don’t. In fact, most publishers these days won’t even talk to an author that doesn’t have a well-designed website and blog. It is vital to have a web presence that is an integral part of your book marketing plan. We can put together an attractive author website package with a built-in blog at a surprisingly affordable price. A successful author uses every tool available to promote his or her work, and the greatest tool of all is the Internet. Without a personal website, you will never reach the full potential of book sales. Empire Publishing has over fifteen years experience in website development, meta-tags, and search engine optimization. We can build you a custom website that will integrate all your sales channels and social media outlets. If you don’t know how to operate social media outlets such as Facebook, we can handle that for you as well, and create custom banners for your brand as an author. Authors can save money by choosing an Empire Publishing package that includes an author website. However, if you already have a book on the market, we can still build an author website for you.
Several organizations offer plans for building a website for you…. be careful. Most of the companies offering to build your website end up owning your domain name and this has bit many people in the butt after a year when his or her website mysteriously disappears from the Internet. One well-known indie-publisher even cheapened their service by building websites for authors on Go-Daddy.com, only to drop the websites service that caused many authors to lose their website overnight without warning. By using Empire Publishing to build your website and our source for hosting it, you retain complete ownership of your website and domain name. As with all our services, when we are finished, we hand the keys over to you. You are the owner and in control However, we never leave you hanging and will always be there to help.
