What's the main difference between the 3 packages?
The main difference between the plans is the work hours we put in each month, working for you. Each month we login to your website manually to make sure everything is in order, update plugins, check for bugs and continue to optimize it.
- The Mini – about 2-3 hours
- The Pro – about 4-6 hours (most popular one)
- The Pro VA – about 10-12 hours
Our SMALL monthly fee covers support and help from us, on some things you normally spend 20-30 minutes, but on others you might end up spending hours. Now you don’t have to anymore. Plus professional premium hosting.
As an author you will always be connected to the online world in a way or another, our aim is to save you enough time to make it worth your while.
For example, you spend maybe 10 minutes each month updating plugins, then maybe something goes wrong, or because of a new update your website doesn’t work anymore on iPhone or Android. We’ll always be on top of things.
Here are just some of the things we do for our clients on a monthly basis:
- Email us with a new interview and we will format it and add it on the website
- Have a new trailer, we do the same
- A new book on Amazon, you want it featured on the home page
- You need a new Facebook cover to promote an event
- You want to write an article for your blog, just send it over
- We optimize your past and current articles for both Google and Facebook
- Design work – any kind almost etc.
- You need a business card for an event
- Security checks
- Manual backups
- You can even consult us via email on:
- Facebook marketing
- Email marketing
- Creating funnels
We act almost like a VA (virtual assistant) for anything related to your website. The above are just a few examples. Plus you will also have access to the website and the sever to modify anything you want, we just go in when you don’t want to or you need help.
So, like I said, if you are interested in making your life easier and selling more books in the process give us a try!
Which package should I choose?
The Mini – It’s mostly building a great author website for you, so if you JUST want an author website, this is the best option on the market right now.
The obvious one is The Pro Plan, even if you are just starting out for some of the things we do for you, it will probably take you years to discover on your own, and when you finally do, you’ll still need to hire a professional designer and a marketing specialist to make sure you are not wasting your money.
This package will get you the most bang for your buck.
The Pro VA – This is for people who want someone to help them with weekly tasks as well, posting on social media, research and much more.
Why choose Publishing Addict?
I’m really glad you clicked on this question and I will try to explain in a few sentences. Publishing Addict was born from the experience we got, working with so many authors in the last few years.
There were always the same issues. You get an author website you are happy with it, but then what?
- I need to turn my visitors into readers or email subscribers. How do I do that?
- I have a new book out; How do I feature it on my home page?
- I want to be able to ask someone to create a landing page for me?
- Where can I find relevant Facebook audiences to target my book promo ads?
- How do I create my first audience to target?
- Who will design an ad for me that will get people to click it?
- Do I get any visitors to my site?
We cover all these and more! This is why you should join the Publishing Addict community.
And we do this for a really LOW monthly fee, starting at just $39/month.
Can I get my author platform sooner?
Well, yes and no.
The average delivery time is 10 days, which I think it is already extremely fast, however it might take up to 20 days depending on the package you choose, and how many clients we have accepted that week.
We only accept 3-5 clients per week.
What do I need to submit to you?
We need only the basic information for now:
1. Pen name and link to Amazon profile
2. Email address for the website
3. Logo and the color scheme you like
4. Flat book cover designs
5. Information about the author
But don’t worry, someone from my team will contact you 3-4 days after you have joined.
I already have hosting. What now?
That’s actually great news.
It means you are on the right track, you have started, however we have decided not to work on our clients hosting accounts because of the amount of problems we had in the past.
Publishing Addict is proud to announce that we are now offering premium hosting for all our clients. (it is already included in the packages).
How unique is the design work?
You will work with one or even 2 professional designers to help you complete the project, everything is taylor made to suit your exact specifications, from colors to layout, to fonts and much more.
Here is just a simple preview of the fonts selection:
How long is the contract and can it be terminated if I decide to use someone else?
So, far we had exactly 0 customers leaving us… and we are pretty sure contracts can’t keep people in, happy. Besides you will have full access to your own server (cPanel) and website, to do anything you want with it.
We are working towards being the best service providers for book authors in the world, and the most affordable ones. If you find someone better than us, we only ask you to let us know.
Why is this closed to new members?
We only have our service opened a few times a year, we spend most of the time closed to new members because we want to ensure the best performance and service possible for our current members.
Please keep in mind, that this is a done-for-you, type of thing so we can’t really accept to many members and keep the same quality.
From time to time we open the doors for a short period when we have new slots, or have added additional resources.
What do I get when I purchase the smallest package?
To keep it short, I’ll give you access to my team for about 2 hours each month. You can get any sort of help you want from them, anything to do with your website, things like:
- Web development
Plus a million other things.
Do I need my own domain? I don't know how to get one...
I already have a website, can you manage it for me?
Short answer is… it depends.
Please contact us to discuss the details. But we offer hosting and website management from $59.
What if I get hacked?
You don’t need to worry about that, make sure you respect our rules (secure passwords etc.) and this will never happen to you, and if it does we will fix it right away.
What if I delete my website by mistake? Or if I do something stupid to mess it up?
We are prepared for this as well, we keep a main backup for emergencies and we also have 20 days backups.
Can I plug my social media accounts in the website?
Yes, we can connect your author website with all the major social media platforms.
Is the website easy to use?
Yes, it is VERY easy to use. WordPress is used by millions of people and almost every day new people are joining the community. The reason why people quickly adapt to WordPress is because it is fairly easy to use. There is a learning curve like with most things.
But if know how to use Microsoft Word we can teach you how to work on your website if you want.
Does it work on all devices? Mobile and Tablets?
It has to!
All the websites we build are very mobile optimized, since mobile traffic has become really big and continues to grow.
Will you create landing pages?
Landing pages are really important to convert your website traffic into leads or sales, we’ll help you set up all that for free.
Can you connect my AWeber, MailChimp etc accounts
Believe it or not… we can do this for you! If you don’t have an autoresponder tool I recommend using AWeber, rather than anything else.
Can I let my customers choose where to buy my books?
Yes, of course.
Not everyone wants to buy books from Amazon Kindle, some prefer to use a Nook, while other prefer to use iBooks.
We’ll set up links on each of your books to these other market places.
Ah, and if you only have your book available on Amazon and you want it on other market places as well, please contact us.
- Google Play
- Apple iBooks
- Barnes and Noble
- Create space
Can you help me send emails to my readers?
Yes, we’ll help you get everything connected and we’ll set up automatic emails to help you build great relationships with your audience on auto-pilot.
Plus we’ll even help you with the first few emails, what to say and how to get them to buy your books.
Can you explain the payments?
We have 3 plans available right now, each comes with its own benefit.
The one-off fee is for actually building the platform, while the recurring one is for making sure everything runs as it should but also for ongoing support.
Do you have a payment plan?
Sure we do, please contact us and let us know what payment plan would you prefer to get started. 3 months, 6 months or 12 months. Rest assured, these plans will come with a significant discount.
We feel PayPal offers the easiest and most secure solution since it is the biggest online payment processor.
