3 Reasons to Showcase Your Book Award on Your Author Webpage

Winning book awards is one of the best ways to build credibility as an author and increase exposure of your book. If your book has won one or more awards, you should highlight those wins on your author webpage. Here are three reasons why you should consider enhancing your author website or webpage with book award graphics:

  1. Instant Recognition – When readers visit your author webpage, you will instantly be recognized for your achievement. This builds credibility and establishes expertise.
  2. A Perfect Complement – If you have already added a seal or graphic to your book cover (and you should once you’ve won an award) adding the same graphic to your webpage complements the Award Recognition Cover Enhancement on your cover. In addition to having the award graphic on all your printed books, you will have a matching graphic on your author webpage.
  3. Stand Out – Readers are often bombarded with potential books to read. You need to stand out in order for readers to choose your book. Award recognition is a great way to set yourself a part from the competition.

With the new Award Recognition Webpage Enhancement option, Outskirts Press will format an Award Graphic directly into your Outskirts Press author webpage so you can proudly display your status as an author of an award-winning book.  This is exclusively available for all Outskirts Press published authors.

Are You An Award-Winning Self-Publishing Author? Show off Your Award Win!

Have your book recently (or not so recently) won an award? Did you know that entitles you to “bragging rights?”

It’s only natural to want to share your accomplishments with the reading and writing community. Sharing these accomplishments publicly can often mean the difference between “okay” book sales and “amazing” book sales. Statistically few published books win awards. If your book has won an award, shout it from the roof tops, add it to your cover, and showcase it on your webpages.

Speaking of which, now Outskirts Press authors can take advantage of our new Award Recognition Webpage Enhancement option. With this new option, we will format an award graphic (just like the ones we use for your award-winning printed book cover with our Cover Recognition option) into your Outskirts Press author webpage.

This comes just in time for winner announcements in recent book awards, as most contests will be announcing winners soon (if they haven’t already). However, this is also a nice way to spruce up your author webpage if you’ve already won an award in the past.
