How does it work?
When you purchase our marketing package or inform us that you would like to commission Seanchaí ePublishing to design and host your author website, our website designer will contact you to discuss the requirements you have for the website. You will provide us with content you would like to be included on your website, for instance information about your book, you, photos, press releases, graphics/book cover and we will get to work on the layout.
As soon as the Homepage design is complete we will upload it to a temporary webspace and await your full approval and comments. When the completed website is approved by you it will be made live and submitted to search engines.
It is important that you promote and publicise your website using email signatures and social media. If you avail of the social media package we can do this on your behalf.
If you would like to commission Seanchaí ePublishing to continue to maintain your website and social media accounts this can be discussed on an individual basis and bespoke quotations will be provided. Contact us for further information.
After one year we can continue to host your website for a small fee or we can transfer control of the website over to you at no cost. If neither of these options is chosen, your website will be closed at no cost to you.
