Are you starting a new website project and looking for the right books to help get you up and running? Look no further! Here are three of the best books available to help you build a website that will serve your business.

🎯 1. Building a StoryBrand by Donald Miller

This booked changed how I approached building websites for my clients.

This is more than a book to help your business. It’s a launchpad into a new paradigm of thinking about the role you play in your customer's journey.

Once you understand the power of storytelling, it catapults you into the possibilities that storytelling can play in your business.

This is a powerful book for your business because the copy on your website plays a crucial role in converting customers.

Leverage the age old technique of storytelling and pick up this book.

📈 2. Marketing Made Simple by Donald Miller

I know, another Donald Miller book—really? His methodology works, and I want to share proven tips that can help you grow.

Marketing Made Simple isn’t a sequel to Building a StoryBrand, but fits in this sequence. This book will help you take the power of storytelling and use it in your marketing collateral—specifically, your website. It breaks down the important sections needed to take your customer on a journey that helps them connect with what you do.

If you are hoping to put information on your website like a flier, you are mistaken about what will work.

User experience is everything, and this book will teach you that.

💰 3. Cashvertising by Drew Eric Whitman

Many web developers like to prioritize design over copy. I think this is a big mistake. Sure, you want to love how your website looks—everyone does. In the end though, the copy needs to work.

A website with a fancy design and bad copy WON’T work.

A website with excellent copy and okay design WILL work.

Drew talks about the ins and outs of writing copy and how to understand why some words work and others don’t.

If you want to nail the copy on your website, you must check out this book.

🔑 Summary

These books will help you build a solid foundation for your website project and provide you with the tools you need to ensure a successful launch. So, what are you waiting for? Get reading!
