A Painless Solution to Building the Foundation of Your Author Platform
Whether you are self-published or have a traditional publisher, you need a website to market your books. Most publishers will tell you that you have to build your own platform: you have to blog regularly; you must try to connect with your target audience; you must build followers and friends on social media; and you must build an email list for ongoing contact with potential readers and buyers.
Building a website that accomplishes all your online marketing needs can be a daunting challenge for the non-techy author. However, success is much more likely if you choose the strategy of using a WordPress author template and a hosting solution that takes care of the technical work for you.
Learn how to build your website with minimal technical skills using an author template. You’ll also learn how to integrate author marketing strategies into the structure of your site.
Create a website that connects to your target audience and promotes your writing products and books.

This course will not require you to get additional training in programming or web development. You will not need to learn the tasks that would be required when you host your own website, such as installing WordPress, finding and installing a theme and plugins and then configuring everything. The author template and a hosting company will take of that for you.
Our goal in this course is that you walk away with an understanding of what it will take for you to create a finished website, ready for blogging and social media interaction. You will be able to use each video as a step-by-step guide to actually complete that video’s topic. The course also includes several more advanced videos at the end that will show you how to build marketing tactics into your WordPress site.
