We had been talking about overhauling our website for years, always wanting a level of customisation that wasn’t available with our previous site.

After Michael had such a fantastic experience working with Jin & Co for his author website, we knew they’d be ideal for this project.

As predicted, they were!

Working from an exceptionally long wishlist, we were able to get exactly what we wanted, realised with more ease and finesse than we imagined was possible. Jin’s thoroughness and speed in responding were outstanding.

Moving from a Circlesoft-based website to an integrated system that uses WordPress as a wrap-around for the Circlesoft shop, means that we now have all the control we wanted, without losing any of the work we’d put into curating lists etc in Circlesoft.

We couldn’t recommend Jin & Co highly enough to other bookstores looking for a more personal presence online.

We are thrilled with the way that our new website reflects the multitude of offerings we have in store, in such an attractive way.

Jin is a talented designer. His websites are unique, beautifully designed and very good value. Jin listened to everything I said about what I wanted in a website and more than delivered. He was pro-active, quick, and professional. I was thrilled with the work Jin did for me, and would recommend him to any author who wants a website that will be an asset to their branding and marketing efforts.

The problem I had was that I was unsure how to present myself as a writer of both adult and YA fiction. I didn’t know how to combine these two potential audiences.

I chose to go with Jin because I loved the clarity of the websites he had already designed for other writers and the sense I had that he was listening carefully when we chatted about what was important to me.

Jin was easy to work with – responsive, reliable, and attentive.

I was thrilled to be able to work with someone who has all the skills I lack in the visual and marketing department!

If you’re wanting to work with someone who will gain a sense of you as a writer and represent that visually, go with Jin.

I was amazed at how Jin so beautifully captured the different moods of my novels on the screen.

Choosing Jin to build my new website has been one of my best decisions ever. He has sorted my widely varying, forty-plus books into a beautiful, highly individual and cleanly functioning site, and continues to advise on and support all aspects of the site, including blog and newsletters. His patience is as extraordinary as his skill!

I had run a website for a number of years using templates from a web host. My website looked homemade at best. I wasted untold hours trying to fix it.

When I decided to branch out and go indie I decided that time was one thing I didn’t have, so outsourcing my website was a major priority. I looked at a few overseas website designers and then decided to find an Australian website designer. I was thrilled to find a Melbourne based website designer who specialized in author websites. I loved the look of Jin’s templates so I got in touch.

Jin has been great to work with, he has listened to what I wanted and delivered a website that makes me smile every time I log on. My website is clean, beautiful and works.

Getting a professional to build my website was one of the best decisions I have made in my indie journey. I can concentrate on my writing knowing that I have a great looking website which displays all my books to their very best. I would highly recommend any author serious about their writing to invest a little in a website which not only brings them joy but brings readers and gives them a seamless way to purchase your books.

It’s been such an incredible experience to work with Jin on creating the website of my dreams.

I’m particularly unskilled when it comes to All Things Technology, and especially websites. For years, I’d been using the most basic of designs (right back to before I was published and all I needed was a simple blog) because that was all I could get my head around. But then my career grew and I began to realise that I desperately needed something more sophisticated and also more suited to the different things I wanted to highlight on my website, so I decided a revamp was necessary!

Jin came highly recommended by my publishers at Penguin Random House Australia.

It’s been so wonderful to work with Jin on this! He’s been amazingly responsive and endlessly patient(!!) the entire way along, and you’ve gone over and above to make sure I have a design that I love!

I mean, Jin’s managed to transform my old website into a thing of beauty, so there’s no area where he hasn’t helped me in regards to this creation! Plus it’s all so easy for me to update and maintain from here on out, which means I can make any changes I want at any point, and still have everything looking amazing!

In the beginning, I wasn’t confident a custom design could be delivered. But Jin rose to the occasion and proved me wrong!

The first time I saw the drafted site in a working and editable model was amazing. There was such a “wow” factor about that moment. But there were other little moments all the way along, too, like choosing a font and discussing different template designs and talking about fancy things like carousels and embedded trailers and drop-down links and “buy now” buttons and newsletter sign-up forms and favicons (that’s a new word I’ve learned through this!) — the list is endless. So it was just a really awesome experience from beginning to end.

Corinne Fenton

The first thing I would like to say about Jin & Co. is that from the beginning I felt I was dealing with an organisation with high standards of professionalism.

The Pre-Production Questionnaire was fantastic as it highlighted to me what sort of site design appealed, what I needed it to achieve and who was my audience.

I was not in a particular hurry with having my site up and running, rather I felt I needed to take time and be certain I was making the right decisions with both design and the sort of information my site needed to contain.

Jin & Co. were patient and allowed me to take my time without pressure.

I would recommend Jin & Co. highly to anyone looking for efficiency, reliability and professionalism and I’ve had some wonderful compliments from friends, writers, illustrators and people across the publishing industry about my fresh and appealing, user-friendly and stylish-looking site. It’s exactly what I wanted.

Jin has been serving our industry for a long, long time and really know the special needs of the book business.

My old website was a mess!

Not only was it outdated and hard to navigate, but it was also aesthetically unpleasing with text and images all over the place. I was long overdue for a new, clean, informative and enjoyable place for visitors.

Jin’s experience in working with authors and illustrators is the best there is.

I first met Jin when he helped me move my first website, created many years ago, to a self-managed entity. He mentioned then that it needed a revamp, but I kept putting it off and patching up my old one with sticky tape. Jin was aware of my body of work and the amount of content involved in creating a new website so we were both realistic what was required and the timeframe.

The efficiency and speed to communicate back and forth on a project are of utmost importance to me. Jin is easy to reach and able to explain and solve any query.

What’s it Jin like to work with? Practicality and Patience. No matter what ‘silly’ question, I throw Jin’s way, he explains it to me, step by step, with grace in layman’s terms. Jin is always there when I forget how to manoeuvre in WordPress.

My advice for other writers considering a new author website? Have an idea of all the possible demographics you hope will visit your site. It will help organise copy, photos, reviews, testimonials, and links.

I wanted a place for children, parents, teachers, librarians, art lovers, curiosity seekers and other creators to gain knowledge about my work. Easy to find where to download activities, watch videos about my process, and my presentations for schools, libraries and festivals.

What’s cool about creating a new Jin and Co website, is the satisfaction in seeing it go live, shiny and new, for all the world to explore.

Jin was really great to work with. The communication was clear and succinct, and the website he built was even better than what I was thinking.

I’m generally quite fussy when it comes to design, and remarkably when Jin presented the first mocks of the website I had very few changes. He really nailed the design and layout the first go, which is a testament to his experience and the thorough briefing process.

I see my book and author website as an eco-system feeding into each other and building my audience in multiple channels. I’ve had hundreds of readers of Cult Status so far coming to my website after reading the book to download a workbook and sign up to my fortnightly newsletter. It’s a really valuable way of ‘collecting’ readers that should make targeted marketing for the future books a bit easier.

Thanks Jin!

I was looking for a cool, easy to navigate site that will be a starting place for anyone looking at our book from readers to media to book stores.

After searching online for someone to build the site, I was surprised to see that Jin And Co. specialises in creating websites for books. Since this is my first ever book, I wanted to work with someone that understands the special needs and requirements to launch and market a book.

I also liked Jin’s office was just 2km from my house. Saying all that everything happened through the peak of Victorian Covid19, and I found communication by email and zoom to be so easy. Jin is very attentive and very quick. I really liked the first design concept that was offered and we went with that. I’m really really proud of the final product: it’s cool, it’s fun, touches all the relevant points, and easy to navigate and understand.

I wanted the site to be different and innovative like our business, and Jin went along with all of my suggestions and ideas – nothing was too hard or overly complicated.

I like how even 3 months into the launch, we keep updating and adding to the site for the benefit of the user.

What would be my advice for other writers considering Jin’s services? Just do it! As we say in our book: great idea by midnight, execute by midday. Jin is fast!

The challenge for Jin with my website was that my published books don’t have a cohesive look or category. I needed a website that suited my Junior Fiction as much as my YA Fiction.

It became clear to me that Jin spends time researching each client when he sent me a small list of designs to consider. While they all appealed, one stood out to me as being just the right balance of colour, playfulness and simplicity. Jin knew that each of my books would look good against the background of the ‘Mila’ design.

From then on, Jin was able to organise the existing content from my old website and transform it into two very professional-looking websites.

emilygalebooks.com & theothersideofsummer.com

Not only that, but he did it incredibly quickly for me, knowing that I had a deadline of my own with a new book coming out.

I have a crazy plan for a new industry-wide platform and only a few weeks to pull it off.

As soon as I said this to my colleagues who had worked with Jin and Co on numerous websites before, they said
“then you have to talk to Jin!”

Jin also got an extra tick for mostly serving author and writer websites — so we know he is a supporter of writing and books, like us. We were impressed with how quickly he saw what we were aiming to achieve. 

Each year the APA coordinates a Frankfurt Book Fair program to support smaller independent Publishers in attendance at the world’s largest book fair, Frankfurt, which draws rights agents (buyers of books rights) from across the globe. 

With the inability for Australian attendance at Frankfurt in 2020 due to COVID, the APA supported Australian publishers in boosting their digital presence. The website serves to promote Australian publishers and the titles and rights they wish to spruik internationally.

It serves as a Virtual Australian Collective book fair stand platform while travel to and exhibition at international events like Frankfurt is impossible, and also provide more general market insights and updates to those looking to learn more about the Australian book industry.

Jin is easy to communicate with and always meets us where our needs are — even if it’s a complex ask with a (very) short timeframe. He lays out how to use your website very clearly and offered learning tools to ensure your self-sufficiency going forward. 

Jin integrated a spreadsheet of book titles and associated metadata into the website and mapped that to directly import into a fresh-looking public facing template. This meant that we were able to set up direct imports for 50+ different publishers, letting them update their own title data without editing the website directly. We were able to focus on wrangling publishing staff for metadata gathering, trusting that Jin would make our untested data imports work smoothly.

Jin turned a complex build around for us in a tight timeframe and I think he is still talking to us! 🙂

Chat with Jin about your project and he will be able to make something work for you.

If you are looking for someone to design your professional author website, then you can stop looking now! Jin & Co. are the goods!

Jin is one of those talented IT guys who also has the gift of creative genius. Through thoughtful questioning, Jin was able to help me discover my ‘online identity’. He was able to take my ideas and turn them into an online reality.

The process was simple, straightforward, professional and productive. Although I live in regional NSW, Jin was in regular contact via email, Skype and phone. This made me feel engaged and connected to the web design project. Even now that my site is live and I’m managing it myself, Jin’s support is only ever an email away.

Because the internet is part of our daily lives, it seems like most websites are kind of the same. But I know that my site is something different; it reflects me as a unique individual. Lots of people have commented that my site is quirky, different and most importantly – memorable.

And everyone keeps asking me – who did your website, it looks amazing? The answer is Jin & Co.

Getting the new site together and the mailing list – which I had heard horror stories about from friends who tried to organise their own – was by far how Jin helped the most.

My website, which I have had for 2 years, originally through Jin as well, needed to be refreshed and updated as I have another book, Nancy Business, coming out in June 2021. I first got my website before my debut, The Nancys, was published and since then I have learned a lot about how I use the website and what areas I wanted to focus on for the refresh.

I chose to stay with Jin as over the years I have worked with him he has always helped me, he is very good at what he does and it always feels like he understands and is on your side. He is excellent.

What’s he like to work with? Responsive, collaborative, patient, highly skilled, excellent designer, always works within the time-period he tells you. Highly recommend.

Jin is excellent to work with, very fast, great eye for design and was able to interpret what I had in my in head to the webpage in such a painless way.

Jin helped me realise what it was I had in my head – to the finished website. I wanted something that appeared simple and easy to navigate for the user but stylish and high performing as well. I wanted to retain the look and feel of my original website as well. Jin led me by the hand and at the end of our one-on-one had a solution for me which I was thrilled with.

I needed a book/author website that had a unique visual appeal to match my book. I didn’t want to go with the cookie-cutter website templates because I wanted something that would truly stand out.

Jin’s portfolio of author websites really caught my eye. Not only did he know how to build a sleek-looking point-of-sales website, but he had a very rich variety in the design aesthetic that he chose for each author. Each website he designed really matched the author & book quite well

Jin was an absolute pleasure to work with and didn’t need any hand-holding. His technical expertise, married with some sublime creative intuition, took a lot of unwanted work off my plate. Not only did he deliver on what I had requested creatively, but he also came up with some really novel ideas that weren’t even on my radar. Whenever I needed technical support, he was very quick to respond to and resolve any issue.

Due to my fulfilment warehouse having some very specific point of sales parameters, I had to lean on Jin to communicate directly with their tech team to get our shipping rates populating correctly through the site. He went above and beyond to make sure everything on his end was working properly and then walked the tech team through issues on their end that were not his responsibility to resolve.**

How you found working with a designer outside of the US. What would you say to other writers concerned about the time difference and distance?

I work with teams around the world in various time zones on various film & commercial projects. That being said, my working relationship with Jin was one of the least difficult I’ve faced with such a significant time difference.

I really loved how Jin went the extra mile to incorporate a sliding/transitioning color scheme while you scrolled through the site. It showed me that he put a lot of thought and care into my website and familiarized himself with the source material he was designing for.

Margaret Aitken

I was aware of the importance of having a ‘presence’ online, even as a pre-published writer, so I quickly threw together a website. I wanted a site that really represented me and my writing and I found it difficult to create my vision on my own.

When I sold my first book I knew I wanted to ‘invest’ my advance into creating a website. I searched online for website designers who specialised in authors and also checked out the sites of other children’s book writers. Jin’s site really stood out to me—his designs are fresh and modern, exactly what I wanted for my own site.

Jin makes the whole process very straightforward. He doesn’t overwhelm with information, which I appreciated, and he guided me through everything step by step. Jin listened to my vision for the site and took all my thoughts on board.

There can be a temptation, with so much information available for free online, to try and create a site on your own. However, the hours of research and fiddling it takes is time taken away from creating. Working with Jin made the process simple and the end product was so much more than I could have achieved on my own.

I didn’t find the time difference between the U.S. and Australia to be a problem. Jin responds promptly to emails and has experience working with authors all over the world.

I would definitely recommend Jin’s services to other writers. I know for a fact that literary agents and publishers look at author’s websites when they are considering their work. Why not make the best impression you can with a memorable and professional website.

The only area that I found a bit confusing was at the beginning of the process with regards to choosing a package. It helped to know that additional elements can be added as needed e.g. I didn’t start off with a newsletter but decided to add that on at the end.

When I saw the final website design for the first time I was thrilled! Jin really went out of his way to include all the design elements I had hoped for. The design has given me a starting block for my marketing campaign and a focus for my online presence.

As a writer of children’s fantasy, I knew I wanted something different in a website.

Jin’s previous work made me suspect that he could offer this, and his preproduction questionnaire clarified my thoughts. Once this was done, the whole process was remarkably simple from my point of view.

Jin came back to me with a clear budget (adjusted to my finances) and, within a very short time, a design that struck just the right note. He responded quickly to my suggestions for changes, made alternative suggestions when one or two of mine didn’t work, fixed any problems promptly and was a pleasure to deal with.

Plus I’m immensely happy with what he created.

So if you’re looking for a website designer with imagination and flair, someone who can step outside the usual run-of-the-mill designs and create a site that is at once beautiful, intriguing and clear, then I would highly recommend Jin Wang.”

Jin is a pleasure to work with. Working with Jin was really easy for me, even though I live in Singapore, and he is based in Melbourne. All of our communication, bar one phone call, was via email.

His emails were clear and transparent, laying out clearly the steps and timelines in the process. He also accommodated my requests for some minor changes in the mockup when we went along. I loved the personalised instructional videos and screenshots he sent me to help guide me on how to use the site. He also was able to recommend to me various tools that I could use to help me manage my site. Finally, there were no unexpected surprises along the way.

I was thrilled with the final result, which looks fantastic! I highly recommend Jin.

For too long I had hidden behind a neglected and weedy blog, thinking nobody would ever come looking for me. Once I had a deal for books two and three I realised that someone, God forbid, might google me. Thus, the need for a professional author’s website.

For too long I had hidden behind a neglected and weedy blog, thinking nobody would ever come looking for me. Once I had a deal for books two and three I realised that someone, God forbid, might google me. Thus, the need for a professional author’s website. I wanted something fit for purpose, streamlined, sparkling and focused on my books, rather than my random chatter.

I shall be honest, I googled ‘Author’s websites Australia’ and Jin were the first one to come up. Excellent SEO work I say.

But looking through all of Jin’s examples I was extremely impressed, plus I knew a number of the authors who had written testimonials, so that was good enough for me.

Jin has been superb to work with, understanding the need to display one’s books without the burden of heavy promotion, and to tailor a site around my other quirks and interests. He has been patient (a must with me and tech) and helpful.

I love the project because (when I had a few tutorials) I could play around with the site like a chess board, like an art piece. Nothing is static. I feel I have ventured into the 21st century. Plus I know I can call on Jin if I fail to figure out how to update anything.

My website was 10 years old and needed updating to coincide with the release of a new series of books. As well as needing a refreshed looking site, I needed a contemporary site that was responsive to smart phones, tablets etc. I have used Jin previously and was impressed by his clear communication and reliability. I was also impressed by the array of one-off templates Jin has on offer—I find it hard to conceptualise how a site might look and these templates made it so much easier to decide on a style and sitemap (with no surprises as to what the final product will look like). Jin always responds to queries in a timely manner and is great at explaining how a site will operate. The thing I appreciated the most was the way Jin worked with me to create a site that operates beautifully now but is also flexible for me to grow it without needing to pay for any future modifications or designs. For any authors out there considering getting a website, I highly recommend investing in yourself and working with Jin.

“I’m that person who asks ALL the questions, and Jin has been incredibly patient and helpful. Not only does he have all the answers, he has also created a beautiful new website which I can update with information and events when I need to. There’s a reason his name is passed about between writers! ”
