Many authors are shocked to learn that getting published is perhaps the EASIEST part of becoming a successful author.
The really tough part of being an author isn’t writing the books – it’s selling the books you write!
Unfortunately, there are two different kinds of author web sites on the web today: those that are search engine friendly – and therefore actively selling books and those that aren’t.
The ones that are easily found and indexed by the search engines are definitely the “right”kind of author website.. the kind of website you want to have promoting your work.
Until recently – it wasn’t easy to create the “right” kind of author website. Creating a web site which is easily indexed by the search engine required an in depth knowledge of programming – and that knowledge isn’t offered inexpensively.
In the past, many authors hesitate to hire a professional to develop their website because of the cost. Professional website development costs can easily run thousands of dollars for a basic site. Because they couldn’t “see” a difference – many authors (as well as many small business owners) have traditionally chosen to go with a “cheaper” alternative. The result – web sites that get little or no traffic because the “behind the scenes” coding was not search engine friendly.
You need an author website that WORKS HARD at promoting your book.
The best author websites will:
- Not cost a small fortune to set up
Let’s face facts – most authors don’t have deep pockets. The less expensive your author website is to set up – the better.
- Clearly set the “stage” for your work
Your website should prepare the reader for what lies behind the cover of your book.
