An ‘Author’s Blog site’ is a welcoming place where people visit and connect online with a writer. As thoughts are shared between visitors and the author, a connection is built. In today’s world it is essential for every writer to have a presence on the Internet, a place (platform) to build community. An author’s blog raises visibility. It’s an “Internet cuppa coffee” conversation where interested people learn about an author’s book, their views and where the author will be ‘on’ the Internet (a Virtual Book Tour) or in person (a schedule of events where they are appearing ).
Each page on a blog site has a specific purpose so visitors can get ‘to know’ the author. (A writer always has the option to give each page a ‘special’ title but familiar terms help visitors.)
The ‘Home’ page is usually the first page (landing page) for information always wanted on display. The ‘Recent Blogs’ page contains posted blogs and comments from visitors. The most recent blog is displayed at the top. In the ‘Say Hello’ page on this site (also called an ‘About Me’ page) is a short biography (250-600 words) of the author with their picture and an image of their book with a short descriptive synopsis. Of course every author wants endorsements so there is a specific page for that as well. The more testimonies and endorsements gathered for this page… the better. Readers always want to know what the author will be doing and where they will be so, an ‘Events’ page is needed. This is where past, present and future events are listed which is a great marketing tool for promoting a book. The ‘Media’ page is important for speaking engagements, articles and press releases. It makes it easy for people who need promotion details. Of course, the Virtual Book Tour page is a must. It lets the author stay at home while travelling the country or even the world letting people know about their book. No more lost luggage, noisy hotels or unfamiliar food!
An Online Book Marketing Specialist (OBMS), such as Plenty FULL VA Services, can set up a branded blog site with a specific style approved by the author. Enjoy exploring this site!
