AuthorBitz Author Social Media Site

Imagine a social media site designed for authors.

It will be a foundation for authors to showcase their work.

In addition, there will be a place for readers and author supporters.

All those FB pages, blogs, websites designed to help authors would be easy to locate and search through.

Edit** The site is up and running in beta form.

All I need is the money to get it started


This is what the site will provide:

For authors:

1. A place to connect with authors and support staff

2. A place to promote their work

3. A place to post their work and get feedback

4. A social media platform designed specifically for THEM

5. A place to build readership

6. A place to get reviews

7. A place to learn from experts and each other

 For Readers

1. A place to connect with their favorite authors

2. A place to find new authors

3. A place to review books

4. A place to discuss books

5. A place to connect with other readers

 For Author support staff (Publishers, Editors, proofreaders, Designers, Formatters, PAs and more)

1. A place to promote their services

2. A place to obtain reviews

3. A place to connect with authors

 I would start small and build from the ground up.

It won’t take much to get it started.

I would be able to set up the basic site and get it going for $500

Maintaining the site for the first year will be a little bit more.

First year budget:

Software license $500

Network Fees: $1000

Equipment costs: $500

 Monetizing the site would keep it up and running and allow it to grow.

The site would be monetized with the following:

1.       Paid Ads service

2.       Donations

3.       Membership fees

a.       Free Basic membership

b.       Fees to upgrade

 Anyone who donates will receive a coupon code giving discounts equal to the donation in fees and ads.

The goal is to raise all of the money by June 1st 2018.
