A number of low-cost web-based offerings allow you create your own site. Before doing so, consider this: Creating an effective and compelling DIY author site is considerably more challenging than the marketing copy makes it seem. Also, build-it-yourself sites don’t come with strategic advice. Finally, it’s often difficult, if not impossible, to export your site to another platform if you want to upgrade to a professionally-designed site or another host.
AuthorBytes has built more than 600 author sites over the past 15 years, and has expertise in all aspects of website design, development, and beyond. Our goal is to create a site that’s not only visually compelling, but more importantly, communicates your brand while providing a satisfying user experience. You write, we take care of the bits and bytes.
