A few months ago I was approached by two very good friends of mine (Stark and The Redhead) who asked me what I would like as an author in a WordPress Theme for my author’s website. I gave them my entire wishlist and what they came back with just blew me away. Their Book Snapper WordPress Theme is fantastic.
They gave me everything I asked for which included:
- Social Media Integration
- A way to showcase my books
- A section where I could put a book trailer up
- A way to highlight the latest blog posts
- An easy way to get people to sign up to my mailing list
- And more
As an author we are dependent on people buying and reading our books. We need to get that exposure and make it easy for people to buy. We also need to build up a list of readers so that we can let them know when we have released a new book quickly. This theme has done exactly that and more.
I was so excited about what they had done that I immediately installed it on my author website and I was thrilled with how easy it was to setup and customise. It took me about 30 minutes to get it done. You can see it here on www.dianaheuser.com.
When they asked me to be their Product Launch Manager I accepted without hesitation. This is a great product and it does exactly what it is designed to do, which is help you sell your books. Now how do I know that? That’s where the unexpected surprise comes in.
As part of the sales page that we created, we listed my site as a demo site that people could go and look at to see how a real author would use it.
Lots and lots …. and lots of people visited my site. Guess what happened next? People bought my book. And my sales rank just climbed in Amazon.
Now the two key elements here are traffic, and making it really easy to buy my book. By linking my site on that sales page I got a lot of visitors clicking on my link and the first thing they see is a Buy Button to my book.
The theme works. It is designed to sell my books and it did exactly that!
This is without a doubt the Best Book/Author Theme out there. And I am not the only one that thinks that. Take a look here at what other buyers are saying about The Book Snapper WordPress Theme.
