ABOUT US

Meet the team behind Bizango

We’re a dedicated seven-person team based Seattle, Colorado, and New Mexico.

We pack a lot of expertise into this team, including design, branding, copywriting, and programming.

We've been building websites for writers for fifteen years.

We're big enough to handle all your marketing needs, and small enough that you can be sure every member of our team knows who you are and feels invested in your success.

“They knocked my socks off.”

A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP

I had a great experience working with Bizango to design and launch my author website. They're very transparent, collaborative, and creative. I'm thrilled with the result ”

We support what we build.

As a design agency in our fifteenth year of business, our clients trust that their websites and their editing tools are kept up to date, running smooth and secure by a team whose livelihood centers on their satisfaction.

Our clients love our easy update system. This fully-managed CMS and hosting service makes it really simple for busy authors to update text and photos on their websites without having to mess around with HTML or the hassles of wordpress.

Add new releases, upload photos, link directly to your affiliated booksites for increased book sales, all without having to call a webmaster and without having to rely on templates.

  • Change text and photos on every page.
  • Upload photos and they're automatically resized and positioned on the page.
  • Promote your newest release.
  • Integrate with your Amazon affiliate program to encourage sales from your site.
  • Highlight upcoming events and readings.
