How to Choose a Web Designer

Picking a web designer is a very personal thing. Not only do you want something that is going to be beautiful/useful to your visitors, you also want someone with whom you can have a good working relationship! (Much like an agent or an editor.  It isn’t enough to have “THE” agent if, “THE” agent puts you in the fetal position every time you speak with her on the phone.)

5 Steps to Your Author Website

Earlier this month, I gave you the Top 5 Reasons an AYUGHF Needs a Promotion Package and the Top 5 Things in your Promotion Package.

Now I want to talk about the 5 steps to creating your author website.


Your Style: Before I start with a new client, I suggest that they give me a list of their top 5 favorite sites and what they love about them. (And also, what they might not love so much). And I suggest that they look at 100+ sites before they land on that top 5. It may sound like a lot, but by the time they’re done with this research, they probably have a good handle on what they like. Additionally, when they present that list to me, then I have a good idea of what’s going to ring their chimes, and what isn’t. Try RWA’s list of author websites for a place to start looking.
