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

One of the biggest hurdles that a new author faces at the beginning of their self-publishing career is that of anonymity.
Fortunately, there are a number of strategies available to self-published authors to overcome this, such as Perma-free Books, Lead Magnets, Front and Back Matter Promotions, Search Engine Optimisation, Video Marketing and Guest Post Commenting, each of which can be very effective.
Central to all of these promotional strategies is an online presence and in particular an author website.
If you have yet to start building your writer platform, then now is the time to do so, beginning with the creation of a great looking author website.
