TitlePager offers an author website template that works across phones, tablets, and desktop or laptop screens. This type of template is called a responsive design. Elements of the page flow into different positions as the viewing size of the device they appear on changes. We’ve designed the basic template for TitlePager with an eye towards solving design and UI (user interface) challenges and to give viewers what they need to know about a book. And we’ve designed TitlePager to help authors build a great marketing site for their book(s) without needing any technical skills. All they need to do is to pick a design and add additional text and links and then pick a URL to make their site into an effective platform for their marketing activities.
TitlePager can make a site for any book that is forthcoming or in print. And it takes just ten minutes to make and publish a site that can be updated at any time. We give you a free sub-domain book-or-author-name.titlepager.com and also support your use of your own URL (you can see an example of that with http://www.justelliot.com/)
We believe that every book needs a website and we designed our author website template and product to contain lots of different options that authors can use to customize their sites and share information with potential readers. TitlePage sites could be called landing pages or one-page sites. Landing pages are a widely used marketing tool for a huge number of online businesses and events. They let viewers learn what they need to and also have calls-to-action. The calls-to-action on TitlePager are buttons, add sharing buttons, and the ability to join a mailing list or book giveaway.
Some larger publishers support authors by creating their websites but for most authors are on their own. We made TitlePager to support indie authors, academics, and authors from smaller publishers who need a powerful home-base for their marketing efforts and who want to be thoughtful about their time and resources.
