There are a gazillion ways to build a website. Sometimes having so many options can feel overwhelming. With this course I will walk you step by step through the entire process of creating a gorgeous and professional author website from scratch. I will show you the steps I used to build over 20 websites for myself and my friends who are authors. It will be as easy as following along to build yours. I did all the trial and error for you ahead of time. I'll make all the tough decision for you and show you the quickest and easiest path to success!
What is Strikingly?
The easiest and most cost-effective way to build a website is to use a platform. Strikingly is a template-based website platform that I use and recommend because of it's ease-of-use, beautiful templates, built-in author tools, and automatic responsive design (which is a fancy way of saying your website will look good on smart phones, tablets and desktop screens).
You can sign up for the Strikingly free trial while you complete this course. If you're happy with your website you can either keep using your free site (with a strikingly domain) sign up for one of their affordable accounts, and customize your domain. When you upgrade you also get a few more great features. I have done my research (pulled my hair out creating wordpress websites that didn't work, spent lots of money hiring web designers that didn't deliver) and Strikingly has very affordable and comparable pricing plans relative to competitors.
