Author Standard Website template
Building an author platform - even a simple one-page website - can feel overwhelming.
What information and sections should it include, and in what order to be effective? And what can be left out?
The answer boils down to the purpose of an author website - to sell books, get visitors to sign up for newsletter and connect with readers.
Here is the minimum content sections a simple author website must include:
- Author bio
- Newsletter sign up form
- List of books and ways to purchase
Connecting with readers
One of the primary reasons for having a dedicated author website is to connect with readers and loyal fans. An attractive picture and a short author bio will greatly help.
Just as important, if not more, is to build a mailing list to be able to get in touch with readers directly, and ultimately sell more books.
Selling more books
Selling more books is the primary business goal of any author. As much as we love to write, we also like to eat. :)
Therefore an effective author website should help sell books. This template showcases latest books, with cover images, book titles and short descriptions, as well as links to purchase.
By using modern web development approach the website achieves a perfect 100% performance score. The author website loads in less than 2 seconds.
