Marketing Help: What Should Be On An Author’s Website?


Are you ready to get your author website up and running?

If you’re goal is to be a published author who sells books, you need a website.   Need— as in, it’s not optional.

Your website is where you establish your brand persona. It’s always where you invite people to learn more about you. Ultimately, your website is your home online and where people will go when they want to follow you and find out more about you.

An author’s website should contain the following information:

  • Your bio
  • Your professional headshot
  • Excerpts from your book
  • A link to buy your book
  • A way to contact you
  • Links to find you on social media
  • A downloadable media kit (includes your photo, a short bio, a blurb about your book, and a few reviews)  Read my blog about media kits here.

Your website doesn’t need to be lengthy or elaborate to get the job done.  For now, it can be a one-page information sheet with the above items listed as it relates to you, the author.
