Author’s website packages with must-haves for indie book marketing

We have done our research and come up with the must-haves for creating a professional author’s website, recommended by successful self-published authors and indie book marketing, and put these into our author website packages.

All you need to do is choose between a professional template based web design or a fully customised design.

Template design $645 + GST
Custom design $1047 + GST

The author’s website package includes:

Each design option comes with a Homepage, Author page, book page (single title recommended), Blog page, Media / events page, and contact page with standard contact form.

The design cost will also cover setting up your social media follow buttons, a sign-up link to receive your newsletter and a link to your point of sale – either via PayPal or through a third party site, Google Analytics set-up, and adding the downloadable PDF files to your media page.

Any additional pages you want to include in the design will be charged on a per-page rate.

Requirements:

You will need to supply a registered domain name, logo and branding, images and page content supplied in digital format. Should you require assistance with any of these items, let us know and we will assist.

Domain names are required to be renewed each year. We recommend choosing your author name for your domain name, as it is the author name you want people to remember and search for online.
We can purchase your domain name if it is available.

Optional extras:

Additional standard page – we recommend a new page for each title with a cover image, book details and synopses of the story, and a Buy Now button that links through to your elected point of sale.

Gallery – great for those authors with multiple book titles to promote, a gallery will showcase the cover images with links through to the book page where visitors can read about and order the book.

Domain name registration – $37.95 +GST per year

Website hosting – $37.95 +GST per month. This includes site security updates and tech support.
