There are tons of myths around websites, from they have to be designed by a professional, that they cost thousands of pounds to get looking great, that they just sit online and don’t do anything, that authors don’t need one so are really a waste of money.
Well they don’t need to be, they can actually be free which is how I used my website for two years, until I decided to host the Out of Your Head and Onto the Page Masterclasses there, and then it did need some bells and whistles. And although it’s true that if you don’t look after your website it will just sit there doing nothing, you won’t let that happen now will you?

A website also enables you to build your contact list through subscribers, and is an invaluable source of people to market to, this content and these contacts, are yours! unlike on any of your social media platforms. That’s why they are so valuable, You can contact your ideal reader subscribers with new content, offers, and information any time you like!
