Home / Self-Published Author Websites

Being a self-published author isn’t easy. Authors published by traditional publishing houses can receive a wealth of support in their branding whereas self-publishing means you have to take care of these things yourself. Self-published author websites are a great way to help promote your book, and enforce the value of your quality as an author.

Let us help you handle this by purchasing a self-published author websites package. Our packages are a great way to save money when you require a lot of services in one go and allow us to meet your all your branding needs.

If you are looking to sell your books on your own website, we can help. Our Premium packages gives you the opportunity to cut out the middleman, making your website actively productive rather than just serving as an online point of reference.

When searching for providers of self-published author websites, you look for the things that are important to you. Some people want a provider who can manage their website as well as design, however, we find that this restricts the amount of control a site owner can have, as they are having to filter their ‘vision’ through a third party. In-house management is not only much cheaper, but it also gives you the freedom to use your site exactly how you want to.

Don’t worry if you don’t know about websites though, all of Purple Market’s self-published author websites come with a free training workshop, empowering you to be able to actualise your vision and use your site to the fullest potential.


Why Choose Us?

Our job doesn’t end once the project is finished. Once you take on a Purple Market service, you are taking on a friend. Whilst we don’t offer a maintenance or support package, we do teach you how to use your website so you won’t need us.


If you have purchased one of our self-published author websites, we make sure that you are totally trained in how to use it for free, so you don’t need us whenever you want to make changes.

We free our clients from the shackles of third party maintenance and empower them to use their websites to their highest potential. Managing self-published author websites in-house is far cheaper in the long-run and grants you a degree of flexibility & accuracy that’s hard to come by if your site is third party managed.

Our training is built into our service package, so we won’t handover control of your website until you have completed our training session and you are comfortable using it.

Depending on your location, we offer the following training delivery-

Face to Face (UK Only)*
Skype*
Telephone*
Email
Messenger

*Recommended

To complement our training session, we also provide a reference document personalised to your site for your referral, although we strongly recommend that you take your own notes during the training session as well.

Don’t worry if you’re working on a budget.


Digital branding solutions can often be a costly and confusing requirement, especially for those who need it most. We pride ourselves on the flexibility of our services and packages, so we can offer you a bespoke package that best suits your needs.

Many authors find that the pricing of digital services are too high with many providers, which tempts the already hardworking writers to try and do it themselves. In many cases, they run into pitfalls they didn’t expect along the way, wasting their precious time and money on something that they could have invested a fraction of in a good value provider to take this worry off their hands from the very beginning.

Our self-published author websites start from as low as £299, comprising of all the essentials to get you started in the digital marketplace.

‘Shut up and take my money!’


The first and most important step in all of our services is to sit down and talk with you. Our consultations are always free and on a no obligation basis.

We don’t believe in taking a sledgehammer to nut, and if we don’t think a service is right for you, we’ll tell you, saving you the pain and hassle of learning the hard way.

We work closely with you to assess your needs, and help you build a package that’s 100% right for you, so you won’t need to worry about paying over the odds prices for services that you aren’t going to benefit from.

Ultimately, your satisfaction and success is our highest priority. It benefits our reputation more for our customers to do well in the long run than any short term financial gain we would get from misselling you a service that you don’t need. So you can purchase self-published author websites from us confident that we are on the same team.
