Your book’s website is the only tool that works around the clock to promote your book, but sometimes the web presence provided by a publisher is… underwhelming. In this two-part webinar series facilitated by book author Katie Linder, you’ll learn how to create a web presence for your book that highlights its key features, bonus materials, purchasing options, and more.

In the first webinar, Katie will focus on the content and strategy of book websites. What are the options for what they can include? How can they be used to promote your book? She will also share specific examples of book websites and discuss some of the dos and don’ts of website design. In the second webinar, Katie will focus on the back-end logistics of creating and designing a website including choosing a domain name, web hosting possibilities, content management systems, and website maintenance, so you will know exactly what you need to do to get started with building your own book website.
