3 Things You Should Have on Your Author Website

As a writer in this current age of technology, it may seem that business cards are a thing of the past. While that’s not entirely true, business cards can still be used to provide people a visual reminder of who you are and where they can go to learn more about you. With more and more people flocking to the internet to find authors and books they may have an interest in, it is important to make sure you have an author website that is up to par with the rest of the competition. That's when hiring an author publicist, like Smith Publicity can help you succeed and make your book promotion process a lot easier. Here are three things every good author website should have:

1.) A list of any published books

Your author website should be a place that leads people to buy your books. The best way to do this is by including a page on your website that makes it simple to find the retailer's site, this way

prospective customers can purchase any of your published books. Even if you don’t dedicate a whole page to your published books, having the book cover displayed that is then linked to a retail site you will also find beneficial.

2.) A way for people to subscribe to an e-mail list

While social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are a good way to engage with readers, relationships with readers can be built more strongly through e-mail subscriptions. In order to get people to subscribe, forms should be easy to find on the website and not have too many fields to fill out.   

3.) A list of future events

You should make sure that your author website includes a page that has a list of events you will be holding or attending in the future. This allows a way for readers to save the date for events that are close to them. Some event types include book signings, panels, conferences, workshops, and more.

No matter what type of genre you are an author for, it is important to make sure your author website hits some of these key points. If you are looking for help when it comes to author promotion or ebook marketing, the team at Smith Publicity is here to help. Reach out today and see how we can help grow your online presence.
