Xlibris' Web Design Services
Reach out to a worldwide audience with the Xlibris Web Design Marketing Service.
Having a personal website means that you can be viewed by anyone, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year—as long as they have Internet access. It is one of the truly efficient ways of marketing your work. With your own website, millions around the world will know about you and your books; you can link your website to forge stronger business relationships with online bookstores, book clubs, and author organizations. You can practically level the literary playing field with the more established authors. The possibilities, it goes without saying, are endless.
The Xlibris Web Design Marketing Service comes in three packages: Starter, Regular, and Advanced. Whichever package you choose, we will take care of your website’s HTML creative design and content. What’s more, the domain name registration and web hosting fulfilment are FREE for a whole year.

By filling out the order form, you can tell us vital information about yourself and your book and about your target market.
For a more personalized touch, we suggest you include your photo and images of your book cover/s. We also encourage you to do a write-up for your site, although a Marketing Services Copywriter is also available for those who prefer full content management service. Sending at least 2 or more images to enhance the artistic rendition of your website also helps to enhance the visual feel.**Please note that the absence of these materials may cause a delay in fulfilment.
You can also make suggestions for your domain name, though only one will be registered upon your approval. This, of course, depends on the domain name’s availability.
