New professional design includes enhanced features, additional domain names
Mount Vernon, VA – aois21 publishing, LLC announces today the launch of the newest version of its company website, aois21.com, built using SquareSpace. The website will also be accessible through new domains aois21.net, aois21.link, and aois21publishing.link.
The new website will be hosted by SquareSpace and allows aois21 to take advantage of new and emerging web technologies. It is based on the three pillars of the company itself, authors, self publishers, and readers. This is shown on the main page with pictures and write-ups geared towards these three audiences.
The new aois21 market will still feature all of the aois21 titles, but now with the Stripe online sales infrastructure. aois21 is continuing to partner with PayPal for those purchasing the service options, which will now be listed under the market as well.
With the increased functionality, aois21 is taking the extra step for its Creatives and creating individual pages for each of them. These pages include the basic biography and picture, as before, but also link to podcast episodes, interviews that are part of the Creative Speaking YouTube series, and authors' blogs, Facebook pages, GoodReads pages, and other sites. Additionally, each book by that author is spotlighted, with additional places to purchase outside of the aois21 market.
News & Events combine a standard news blog, where aois21 will place all official announcements, and a basic list calendar. The events will include upcoming book signings, release dates, book fairs, and other festivals. Check these pages regularly to find out where you can meet your favorite aois21 Creative or pick up the latest release.
The new media section brings together all of aois21’s promotional activities, starting with the literary magazine, the aois21 annual. The annual page features the full submission policy and timeline for each release, with links to support, submit, or advertise. Separate pages for each of aois21’s podcasts, Publish Me! and Passion on the Page, provide listeners with information about these series and access to all past episodes. The Creative Speaking YouTube series has its own page as well and will be updated with each monthly release, even teasing the forthcoming release several weeks in advance.
The About Us section contains the very heart of aois21, starting with the company background and source of the company name.
