At Jin & Co., we understand that exceptional authors and industry associations deserve an exceptional online presence.

That’s why we offer a comprehensive custom website design service, meticulously crafted to fit your unique design, technical, and marketing objectives.

We collaborate closely with you from concept to completion, ensuring that every detail aligns with your vision and reflects your distinct identity. With our custom design service, you’ll benefit from an unparalleled level of personalisation, capturing the essence of your brand while addressing your specific needs and goals.

Custom websites are priced by the number of layouts ordered.

What’s a layout? A page layout is a single page or section template that we use to build multiple web pages. You can have an unlimited number of pages from each layout, at no extra cost. For example, we would create a single book page template and reuse that to create individual pages for each of your books.

Price per layout:

A $1,600 / USD $1,200

Custom designs require a minimum purchase of three layouts.

How it works

When you engage our services in creating a custom website, we initiate a four-stage process spread over four stages to get your new site up and running.

These stages are Discovery and Planning, Design, Construction, and Deployment.

Discovery and Planning

We invite you to a discovery meeting either at our shop in Melbourne, over the phone, or via video call. We’ll cover your envisioned site design, and taste preferences, and discuss your website’s purpose and goals, so we capture exactly what you’re looking for.

We’ll send a formal quote with a breakdown of each major project stage and a timeline for getting your website live.

It is also at this stage that you make the first half of the payment for your project.


We get to work on crafting a visual design prototype, which demonstrates exactly how your site will look and feel in a web browser.

Here, you’ll get a chance to review the design and provide feedback. We work on adjusted versions until you’re completely comfortable that it fits and represents you.

On your approval, the second payment is due.


We start with a base theme custom crafted by Jin & Co. specifically for the needs of authors.

Our Master Theme gives you a suite of features already built-in such as review quotes, buy buttons, video embeds, downloadable resources, and awards.

Our Construction Review stage gives you another opportunity to make tweaks to content and content configuration.

Once you approve, you’ll be invited to purchase our Website Essentials Package – which covers your domain name and website hosting.



Your website will be ready in approximately 4-6 weeks from our initial briefing, depending on the specific feature specifications.

We employ a rigorous 65 step deployment checklist to ensure quality and assurance.

When you’re 100% happy with how it looks, how it functions, and in your ability to operate your website, we make it live to the public.
