But once you get potential readers to your site, how can you keep them there and drive them toward your books?
Here are some simple and effective elements every author should have on their site. When designing your site and adding content, be sure that you are considering the goals of your site. Your web page should function as another employee. I heard that great bit of advice from the awesome team over at Being Boss. Be clear on your website’s purpose and then select your content accordingly.
Bonus Tips: Don’t be afraid of color and if web design is not your cup of tea, find a designer that can rock an awesome site for you. You can connect with designers and other publishing professionals at biblicrunch.com Don’t make your site more complicated than it needs to be. Remember, when a new visitor comes to your site, you want to either 1) sell them a book or 2) add them to your newsletter for upcoming books. Everything on your page should point them to one of those two outcomes!
Good luck, writers!
