Author Landing Page: a single page website

Cost effective and everything you need to get started….

Estimated Cost: $550

Includes:

  • 45 minute initial meeting
  • Landing page – one page site featuring:
    • your book cover
    • your author photo
    • a short (2 or 3 sentence) bio
    • an excerpt from your book
    • an optional countdown timer to your book’s release date
    • links to your social media pages
    • email call to action (collect emails to announce release dates, readings or other events)
  • desktop, tablet and phone friendly
    • NOTE:  60% of current web users will view your website on their phone
  • No menu or secondary pages
  • Security and backup plugins to protect your website
  • 45 minutes training session on how to update your own site
  • Installation of a professional theme capable of expanding your one page landing page to a third tier, highly complex website down the line once your book has taken off.

You supply:

  • a domain name you’ve secured and purchased
  • theme purchase ($61.00)
  • website hosting – A website host is required for a website. It’s the home where your website files and databases reside. Every host charges an annual fee ranging from $75 to several hundred dollars depending on your site’s needs. I highly recommend Siteground and use them for all websites when possible due to their stellar customer service and security measures.
  • your bio statement and photo
  • one or two book excerpts
  • release date for your book
  • access to your MailChimp or Constant Contact account for email integration.  (We can provide information for how to set up these services if you don’t have an existing account.)
