About This Class

The Author Website Masterclass will show you how to create an original, professional-looking, mobile responsive author website, where you can engage with your readers and turn them into fans

***** Please note that if you are starting your Author Website from scratch, then you should definitely take Class One in the Writer Platform series, which shows you step-by-step how you can set up your hosting, propagate your domain, install and configure WordPress and then purchase a premium theme and skin to create a responsive, fast loading site, which is search engine optimised *****

If, however, you have already set up your website, you can instead just concentrate on watching this class, which shows you how to transform your WordPress site into an Author Website that is focused on selling books and other types of digital content, such as online courses.

Among other things, you will learn:

  • How to brand your author website
  • How to create a Gravatar
  • How to choose a domain name
  • How to choose and install the correct plugins for your website
  • How to add engaging content
  • How to add your library of books

The building of a mobile responsive author website really is a MUST for every self-published author. And this course will walk you through it every step of the way.
