Fast, Easy, Affordable Web Sites For Novelists Who Hate Marketing

Are you a novelist? Do you hate marketing? Do you think it's crazy that publishers expect you to have a well-oiled marketing platform -- BEFORE you've even published your first book?

Are you sick of hearing authors quacking about Twitter, Facebook and other social diseases?

Does it drive you nuts wondering whether any of it even WORKS?

DitDat is here to be your marketing and website coach. We'll tell you WHAT to do, WHEN to do it, WHY you're doing it, and HOW you know it's working.

Plus we'll give you access to the most advanced, easy-to-use, technophobe-friendly author website technology on the planet. We've done all the hard work so that you can sit back and do what you do best -- put off that writing project one more day.

Here's the deal we're offering our BETA authors:
  • In less than sixty seconds we'll build you an author web site with exactly the pages that every author needs.
  • Your site will be so easy to edit that you'll be able to create new pages in a matter of seconds.
  • We'll show you exactly what to do to customize the site and make it work for you.
  • We'll give you the exact order to do each step.
  • We'll tell you why you're doing it.
  • We'll help you set up tools to measure how well your marketing works.
  • We'll meet with you regularly in a group to coach you while you build your marketing platform.
  • We'll work continuously to maintain and improve your web site platform.
  • We'll keep you informed about new marketing strategies as we learn about them
  • We'll add technology to make things simpler, easier and more automatic.
You don't need to know anything about technology. We bring the tech.

You don't need to know anything about marketing. We tell you what works and why.
