Build A Stunning Author Website In Minutes With Wix - A Beginner's Guide

As an author, having a website is an essential part of promoting your work and connecting with your readers. However, building a website can be intimidating, especially if you don't have any coding skills.

Fortunately, there are website builders like Wix that make it easy for anyone to create a professional-looking website without any technical know-how. By the way, if you don't have a Wix account yet, just click on the link in the description box to sign up for free.

In this video, we'll show you how to build a simple and stunning author website with Wix. We'll cover everything from choosing a template to customizing your website, so you can create a website that showcases your work and connects with your readers.

Step 1: Choose a template

The first step in building your author website with Wix is to choose a template. Wix offers hundreds of templates that are specifically designed for authors, so you're sure to find one that fits your style and needs. When choosing a template, consider the following:

* Your brand: Choose a template that aligns with your brand and the style of your writing. If you write horror novels, for example, you may want a template with a darker color scheme and spooky imagery.

* Your goals: Think about what you want to achieve with your website. Do you want to promote your books, share your writing, or connect with your readers? Choose a template that supports your goals.

* Your audience: Consider your target audience when choosing a template. If your readers are primarily younger adults, for example, you may want a template with a more modern and trendy design.

Once you've chosen a template, it's time to customize it.

Step 2: Customize your website

Wix's drag-and-drop editor makes it easy to customize your website. You can add and edit elements like text, images, videos, and more with just a few clicks.

I actually have a number of Wix tutorials here on YouTube to help you easily create and customize your Wix website. I'll leave the link to that Wix tutorials playlist down in the description box.

Here are some tips for customizing your website:

* Add your branding: Make sure your website reflects your brand by adding your logo, brand colors, and fonts.

* Showcase your books: Create a book page that showcases your books and allows readers to purchase them directly from your website. Include high-quality images of your book covers, as well as descriptions and links to purchase pages.

* Add a blog: A blog is a great way to share your writing and connect with your readers. Use your blog to share writing tips, behind-the-scenes stories, and updates on your writing projects.

* Include social media links: Make it easy for your readers to connect with you on social media by including links to your social media profiles.

* Optimize for search engines: Make sure your website is optimized for search engines by including relevant keywords in your content and metadata.

Once you've customized your website, it's time to publish it.

Step 3: Publish your website

With Wix, you can easily connect your domain name and publish your website with just a few clicks. Here's how to do it:

* Connect your domain name: If you don't already have a domain name, you can purchase one through Wix. If you already have a domain name, you can connect it to your WIX website.

* Publish your website: Once your domain name is connected, it's time to publish your website. Click the "Publish" button in the top right corner of the WIX editor, and your website will be live!
