  1. Hey friends! I hope you enjoyed getting a tour through my author website! What did you think? I'd love to see you over there, especially in the Members area :)! I would also love to know if you have any other questions about building or improving your author website or if any of these tips helped you come up with some new ideas! And if you'd like me to do a more step-by-step "how to" for creating even a one-page author website or how to create a members page, let me know too! I love helping you guys ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you all have a great day!

  2. Your website looks so stylish and clean. I like it!

    I agree with you, whether you go self or trad pub, if you are serious about your author career, you should build your author platform (including website) as soon as possible. From what I've read up on this, it's recommended to have the call to action (newsletter in this case) above the fold. So I went with menu, tagline and about me + photo, and the newsletters right underneath. The downloadable lead magnets usually work great. It can be a sample of your book (a couple of chapters) if you're not already published.

  3. Congrats Brittany! I am so excited for you and canโ€™t wait to see where you go from here because you are already an inspiration to the community. I agree with you on so many points and youโ€™ve given me many ideas for how I can improve my website as well.

  4. Awesome video I might look into making a web page did you say that wix was free? Because I was being put off when I found some that you had to pay! Awesome video!

  5. Yes I have been having trouble making my site lol itโ€™s been a process to say the least so any and all tips will be very welcomed!

  6. This was great, Brittany!! So helpful!
    I'm still intimidated by the process since I'm not very tech savvy but I know I need to make an author website. I just have to think up some good content and jump into it!

  7. Loved the video! This definitely gave me some more ideas on how to make my author site better. Do you have any recommendations or videos about what to put in an author newsletter? I hear all the time "it's so important, you have to do it!" But nobody ever explains what the "it" is that you "must do." Lol

  8. Love this video Brittany!! It turned out sweet – and seriously, I know I've said this already, but your websites are always gorgeous (speaking as someone who's also seen your music website in the past!) and you could truly charge for creating simple website starts for other people! (Also speaking as someone who just remembered that you totally created my music website on WIX however many years ago in the past haha! I have no idea where it went, but I remember you did an amazing job!!!) <3

  9. Congrats Britt! This looks so amazing, I love the format, the colours, the tabs and the content, the style you wrote, absolutely everything! You are so awesome, I just fell in love with your site! Good job! Have a blessed day!

  10. Ohh this looks absolutely amazing! Congrats on going live and 300 subscribers! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I found a small typo and it's not even visible in the video, but the name of the window showing at 14:53 is (on my laptop, at least) Author Brittay Wang | Other Resources instead of your name :'D

  11. Thankyou Brittany I learned sooooooo much!!!! Great timing, as I am revamping my website right now. Your site is gorgeous, and I love your new haircut! It would make a great head shot for your website, it really suits you.

  12. Congrats on launching your website! I'm on the process on launching mine (I actually have a whole video on how I kind of design it), and I'm also using Wix! I've worked as a freelancer designer for websites, and I've tried many website builders, but I feel like Wix is the easiest, most flexible one!

  13. Awesome video Brittany! Very thorough, thank you! Your website looks amazing!
    I have a blog that I was trying to connect my author website to instead of having 2 websites but it's not working correctly haha…yay for works in progress!

  14. Thanks for doing this video, Brittany. I took one of your tips and added the authortube info on my home page. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Hey Brittany, I saw your shout out on Suny Lenarduzzi and thought I'd try to help make it work for you…. I'm checking out your videos and subscribed as well. Good luck, it looks like you are off to a great start! Doug

  16. Hi thanks for this! Curious about what template you used for your Wix website. Needing to build my first site. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. ๐Ÿ™ Thank you very much. Because of your video I will try to create my website today! I am a new author as well. My first book is, the order of the Golden feather. Now on Amazon but it needs to be marked it with my website and newsletter.
