what does a Custom website include that a Basic website does not?
The Custom website is a unique website designed with your preferences in mind. The Basic sites will all look pretty much like this one, with colors/fonts/content adjusted per client request.
Custom logo design. While we will update the logo / site title on the Basic site with your logo/name, the customization is limited to a set number of basic fonts/style. For our custom customers, we create a logo just for them, with multiple rounds of review, additional design elements, etc.
Complete customization. Want branded imagery? Green glitter? A rotating banner to feature your upcoming products? A silver frame around your author photo? Fancy blog integration? Our custom website includes all of that. The basic website includes uploading of the images you provide us (usually headshot, product images, book covers, etc), with very few frills.
