Do you want to showcase your books & writing and cultivate an audience that love your work?
Do you want a channel to showcase your voice through your writings and works that isn’t dependent on anyone else?
Here’s the reality: an average book sold through a traditional publisher sells less than 500 copies [Source: Publisher’s Weekly via HuffingtonPost] – the traditional publishing houses don’t really market/promote your book, at best it gets lost in a sea of “me too” books on the bookshelf at your local super-bookstore.
It’s now up to the Author’s (like you) to build your own audience and following in order to sell books.
Just look at a guy like Tucker Max. If you’ve never heard of Tucker, he’s a New York Times best-selling author. AND he published his own books without going to a traditional publisher.
He’s sold MILLIONS of copies of his books – purely on his own.
How did he do that?
He stated by building up his own audience and following through his website.
Here’s the tools for showcasing your writing and building your own audience…
Virtual-Tree’s Author Web Business Package is specifically built to help you as an Author to make it easier for you to build your own following through your writings and showcase any of your existing books.
Here’s what you can do with this package:
- If you have existing books and works, showcase them in a beautiful online library with links to purchase straight at Amazon
- Highlight your profile as a writer and author to gain credibility and authority in your topics of interest
- Easily create blog posts with no technical knowledge whatsoever.
- We build all our sites with the WordPress blog platform, which powers over 28% of the Internet’s websites. This allows you to focus on creating content without needing a techie to help you. It also makes your site easier to maintain since it’s such a widely used and accepted platform – you be sure it won’t be out of date anytime soon.
- Promote yourself for speaking engagements and/or consulting
- SEO (Search Engine Optimized)-friendly website – makes it easier for your website to get indexed by Google (and other search engines)
- Mobile-friendly website – most other web firms don’t mention the significance of this. Rest assured your site will be mobile-friendly so it is “future-proof” and you don’t miss out on valuable and increasing visits from mobile devices
- Lean and clean code – why is this important? when the code of your website is lean and clean, it doesn’t slow it down and loading a website fast is extremely important to your visitors and being seen on Google. A slow website means lost money.
Is this for me?
This package is for you if you are predominantly a writer and have existing body of works you can showcase and promote yourself for speaking engagements.
If your work is mostly through consulting and offering professional services, then the Consulting/Professional Services Business Package is for you.

Bonus #6: VT’s Must-Have WordPress Plugins Installation – (Value of $200)
What are plugins? The out-of-the-box WordPress installation is fine, but there are additional functions that are needed for a good performing site which are done by installing “plugins”.
Most web designers will just do the basic WP install for you but leave you to figure out which plugins to add (if you need them). We have a list of “must-have” plugins we install on ALL our WP sites.
We feel as a client you should have these too, so we include the selection and installation of our must-have plugins so you don’t have to figure it out yourself.

But you won’t have to pay nearly that much…
