ModFarm provides a full website management service, which includes design, hosting, security, support, and ongoing maintenance.
Your Needs, Your Design
With a little insight about you, your books, your needs as an author, and your preferences for marketing and working on the web, we are able to create a design that actually works for YOU.
We do this via an online survey – don’t worry, it only takes about 5 minutes to get through it, we promise 🙂
In addition to the basics, we ask about your genre, whether you write series or standalone books, are you wide or kindle exclusive, self-published or traditional, how many books you write a year, how aggressively you market your books — stuff like that.
Next, We Start Building
Based on what you’ve told us about who you are, how you work, and what you need, a designer will rapidly build up your site using our proprietary site build and project management system. Not only is it super fast, but you are kept informed of every step on the way.
You’ll get a prompt via email whenever we need you to review or comment on something, as well as whenever we finish a milestone.
During the build, you will also have your very own project portal you can check at any time to see how things are coming along.
Our goal is to have your site design built and populated in a week or less. Because time is money and no one wants to be stuck in a never ending site build…
Then, The Final Set Up[device type=”surface”][/device]
Once the design is set and the staging site is built and your comments are addressed, we will migrate it from the staging area to its permanent home.
As part of this process, we will import any of your existing content and complete all of your final tweaks and adjustments.
This includes things like setting up your newsletter, your site analytics, your SEO optimization, your Social Media connections, your backup schedule, and your book and library structure.
Finally, Ongoing Support[device type=”surface”][/device]
After your site is set up in its permanent home, we will continuously monitor it and keep everything up to snuff.
And we’re not talking just plugin updates, either. This means 24/7 security monitoring, nightly backups, uptime monitoring, plugin and core updates, SEO optimization, site statistics, and support requests – complete with a monthly report to keep you informed on everything that’s happened.
We even update your book pages whenever you publish something new.
