Your advice has been so informative for me. I am a first time author. My book is being published now. I am in the editing phase. I am not sure of the release date, but it will look more like toward the end of the year. I wanted to create a website with a blog to create interest in my book. It can be so overwhelming, so I am always reminding myself to step back and breathe. You gave me so many great tips…however, it was very direct and easy to follow and take in. Thank you for this site!!

Comment on Using Photo Headshots Online by Calvin Pennick JR https://www.outboxonline.com/photo-headshots-website-social-media-profiles/#comment-23398 Wed, 08 Feb 2017 06:51:06 +0000 http://outboxonline.com/blog/?p=337#comment-23398 Excellent advice. So many people have cameras now that people take photography for granted and they don’t realize how important it is to hire a professional photographer for the headshots. You don’t have to spend a lot either. Most people spend more for their phones. Headshots are not just for actors anymore.

I personally prefer not doing it by myself, I can never do it like some other who sees the whole perspective from the other side.

Comment on Your Website Bio Page – Tips on What to Include by Sonda Hilario https://www.outboxonline.com/your-website-bio-what-to-include/#comment-20197 Fri, 01 Jul 2016 17:46:54 +0000 http://www.outboxonline.com/?p=1811#comment-20197 This is awesome. Being a “somewhat” shy person who does not like to talk about herself at all, I found this article very inspiring and a complete redo of our BIO is sooo necessary now! As you said modesty is not on your side in a Bio. It also made me think about other Bio’s I’ve read and ask the question: why did I like them so much? It’s because the people became real just like me. I could relate to their situation or background and that stuck! So thank you for making me rethink the whole Bio thing! Thank you!

Comment on When to Build an Author Website by Kate McMillan https://www.outboxonline.com/build-author-website/#comment-19569 Wed, 01 Jun 2016 18:35:03 +0000 http://www.outboxonline.com/?p=18274#comment-19569 Jay – as always, it depends! If their personal brand is something that contains relevant key words (such as “Commercial Real Estate Negotiation Maven” or “Mindfulness Meditation Expert”) because their name isn’t well known, then yes, it would be appropriate to start out under their personal brand. In that case what they’re actually looking to develop is their brand via their book(s) — therefore a book page on a site that is largely about their expertise and services would be great. If their personal brand isn’t yet developed (or will change depending on the sales of their first book) or all they’re working with is their name and it isn’t already known (and therefore searchable), then I would focus on a website for the book that helps establish the author as an expert. Once an author has multiple books and is gaining traction is when you want to re-evaluate and decide if the focus will remain on the books or whether a larger site about the author (and their expert services) makes more sense. Either way the author should own both URLs (their name/brand and the book name) and redirect the one not in primary use to the other.

Comment on When to Build an Author Website by Jay Feitlinger https://www.outboxonline.com/build-author-website/#comment-19456 Sun, 29 May 2016 13:23:29 +0000 http://www.outboxonline.com/?p=18274#comment-19456 Kate, is your advice for the 1st time author who hopes to write more business books to create their website under their personal brand, and redirect their book url to a page about the book on the personal brand site OR do you recommend the author create a seperate website for the book title?

Comment on Your Website Bio Page – Tips on What to Include by Gabriela https://www.outboxonline.com/your-website-bio-what-to-include/#comment-14070 Tue, 02 Feb 2016 06:13:14 +0000 http://www.outboxonline.com/?p=1811#comment-14070 Hi Kate,

Thank you so much for all this awesome info and guidelines. I just started building my own web site and jumped in without having a clue what I should do. Now I’m reading your post and thinking – Great job Gabi. Now take it all down and start over. That will teach you.

So, armed with the info you gave us here, I will go and start over. I can’t wait to get to work and maybe when I have my Home and About page to some standard.

Thanks Kate,
Gabriela

Comment on Before, During & After the Launch of Your New Website by Damon Burton https://www.outboxonline.com/how-to-launch-website/#comment-14063 Tue, 02 Feb 2016 01:50:54 +0000 http://outboxonline.com/blog/?p=469#comment-14063 When launching a website, we worry too much about the “before launching” situation. It’s a good thing you were able to explain the “after” and “during” situations too. It can help us identify what we should do in the first place to be able to launch effectively and successfully. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
