We’ll create a gorgeous and highly effective WordPress website designed to help you build your author platform. And we’ll host your site and provide the monthly support you need, saving you time to focus on writing and earning more money from your writing, and your business.

Got questions? Here are answers to common questions we get?

Will I get a custom website, or is this a template?

Yes, you'll get a custom WordPress website to reflect your specific author brand and business requirements.

Will I have my own URL? My own domain name?

Of course, but you need to reserve that yourself at Google Domains, GoDaddy or elsewhere. Once you do, we'll show you how to point your domain to us so that we can show your gorgeous new website to the world. Believe us, you'll be proud to do so.

Do you also host my website and email accounts?

You betcha! As part of your monthly fee, we host your website and as many email accounts as you'd like. So you don't need to pay hosting fees anywhere else. Of course, you can keep your email accounts elsewhere if you'd like.

Will I be able to add content and edit my site?

Sure, as long as you're comfortable using WordPress. Millions of people use WordPress comfortably and you may find you enjoy it too. If so, you'll be able to use our visual, drag/drop editor tools to update text, add images, create new products, create blog posts and even change design elements, if you want.

Conversely, if you'd rather be hands-off and have us handle updates and changes for you...that's what we're here for.

What if I need help or want design changes down the road?

If you want minor changes (simple text changes, for example), we're happy to make them for you. Free of charge. For larger changes (layout changes, additional pages, new features, etc.) we're happy to make those changes for a fee. 

How much will my awesome new website cost?

Our pricing is simple and designed to maximize your cash flow, not ours. Most other solutions offer annual and monthly plans. But those are designed to lock you in annually, which means you have to cough up a lot of cash.

We only offer a monthly package so that you can save your cash while you're building your author platform. We do charge a modest one-time design fee of $349 to customize the site for you. But after that, it's just $39/month for a hosted website and support.

Do I have to host the site with you, or can I move it to another host?

Your website design and hosting package with Small Farm Nation requires that we host the site for you. This is one of the ways we can offer you a gorgeous, custom farm website for only a few hundred dollars rather than the typical $3-$5K fee for a similar site.

Why is there a wait list?

I know you're anxious to get your new site designed. But we create custom WordPress sites for each farm business with a limited staff. Once you sign-up for the wait list we'll get back to you right away to let you know if we can go ahead and schedule you, or we'll set expectations for the current wait time.

Small Farm Nation creates beautiful farm websites and offers online farm marketing courses that help farmers grow profitable farm businesses.
