Yet, if you are truly interested in giving your book the best online marketing opportunities, you need to have your own book author website.
To begin with, if you use social media networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to promote your book, you will want to include a URL link that sends people to a dedicated book author website to show that you are a serious book author.
And this is especially true because you don’t want to use a URL to a shared site where people can get distracted with the other books available and forget about checking out your book.
You want to be able to offer a sample chapter on your site in order to entice potential purchasers to buy the entire book. This sample chapter can also be used to encourage people to give you their name and email address.
Thus, if you have this information, you can keep yourself in front of people who might not have bought your book the first time they visited your site. Now you can send emails with updates of your book and your next book.
Another important reason to have your own book author website is to be able to include book club discussion questions on the site. Plus you can also include book videos and book audios.
Then there’s the advantage of having your blog on your book author website. With the constant addition of fresh material, you make the search engines happy with your site. The result of this is to help your website come up higher in the organic search results when someone is looking for a book related to the topic of your book. It is very important to have links leading into your site as well as leaving your site, and being able to find an author name or work via SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
