Visiting an author’s website is one of the leading ways that book

readers support and get to know their favourite authors better.

The stronger the relationship, the more likely zealous advocates

will spread the word about the author to friends, family and peers.

 

And website visits can translate directly into books sold.

Why WordPress?

•It’s a very versatile platform with endless possibilities! It’s not only for bloggers. It’s one of the most popular choices for Authors to showcase their books..

•Even better, Google LOVES WordPress! What’s the point of having a website if web crawlers are ignoring it? The WordPress platform was designed with search engine optimization in mind. Frequently updating your WordPress site with quality content will help you to get higher in the search engine rankings.

•Ease of use and short learning curve. The owner of a website should have total control over it, be able to access it at any time, and have the ability to be able to make changes themselves or I can do for you.
